COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s Old Man Bitter

A mix of citrus and pine that will remind you of the time you went on a vision quest with your Native American cousin and you woke up in a pine grove full of grapefruit trees.

An American-style India Pale Ale with a deep golden-orange color. Bitter and hoppy, with a surprisingly smooth finish.

Modus Hoperandi, an IPA sitting at 6.8% ABV and 65 IBUs.

Bra alternativ till punk ipa när det gäller husöl. Denna kan man alltid ha hemma, funkar i många tillfällen. Jämfört med punk ipa är denna lite beskare, lite sötare, saknar den extrema citruskaraktär som punken har. Det den saknar i friskhet mot punken tar den igen i sötma, beska och kropp. En grymt stabil hus-öl. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma starts with straw and picks up citrus as well. Gives somewhat of a dry and mostly bitter finish with hints of citrus lingering. Decent beer.

Poured from a 12 oz can. This is a classic American ipa. Doesn't try to be fancy, but nails the bitterness and aroma of an American ipa ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled on draught at the Horseshoe in Hampstead (they have an amazing selection of draught beers since the recent refurbishment!).Copper/brown colour with a white head. Intoxicating aromas of tropical fruit and pine. the taste struck me initially as rather wierd - I was expecting a malt taste initially but what I got was very choclatey. Unexpected and not entirely pleasing. Are they using chocolate malts? Anyway, the very powerful hops flavours kick in later - lots of pine, grass and grapefruit skin. Full of flavour, but mouth-puckeringly astringent. I found it so bitter I could not finish it. Some of these American IPAs are not easy to drink. Perhaps they are aimed at winning competitions rather than just providing an enjoyable pint?

Brenhophead (631) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 23, 2015
355mL can that pours copper with a big fluffy off white head. Pleasant piney/grapefruit aroma, mostly a resinous pine in the flavour but it also has a nice citrus kick.
