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.

pieeetr (27) - Hägersten, - MAY 3, 2013
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

High_in_NM (8) - Los Alamos NM, New Mexico, USA - JAN 13, 2015 does not count
Dark copper pour with fluffy white head from a can. Sharp bitter attack. Pine resin and spruce. Bitter astringent finish that lingers. Very focused and nice hop lover’s IPA.

grubypawel (125) - - JAN 9, 2015
Pours hazy amber with a small white head and good lacing. A strong resin aroma from the bottle and then some tropical fruit and honey from the glass. The honey was quite strong with some cardboard, but I am assuming the beer wasn’t that fresh as I got it in Sweden. A very drinkable IPA.

konungen (96) - - JAN 9, 2015
Bronsfärgad öl med lätt beige färgat skum. Väldigt humlig fruktig doft. Smaken är relativt söt med mycket maltsmak och fruktighet. Beskan är av någon anledning inte någon hit. Lång humlig eftersmak. Burk från Systembolaget. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Saeglopur (482) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JAN 7, 2015
355 ml bottle from Systembolaget Passagen, Stockholm.
Dark amber to copper, moderate hazy body, with a medium, lacing, creamy, slightly yellow head.
Aroma of grapefruit, pine, peach, tea, caramel.
Tastes of grapefruit, pine, resin, sweet berries, peach, tea, with a smooth malt backbone of biscuit and honey.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes bitter, quite dry, zesty, piney, but also subtly sweet malty.

Really tasty! I’m surprised this isn’t rated higher. Wonderful balance between quite strong, piney, resinous hops and suprisingly big, smooth malts. Also some nice fruits underneath. The intensity is a bit like a Double IPA, but it still drinks easier like an IPA.

CroftyCuts (14) - - JAN 6, 2015
Can from Cellarbrations at Carlisle. Brilliant looking beer, orange/golden colour with a small white head. It lacks a little in flavour for me, it seems to be all about the IBU. Not a bad beer and I'm glad I could try it from a can but doesn't stand up to some of the better American IPA offerings.

bjakk (412) - Skagafjordur, ICELAND - JAN 4, 2015
A gift from Dan. Bronze colour, mildly cloudy with nice yellowish head. Fruit malt and hops in the aroma. Malt, flower and then extreme hoppy mildly burned malty aftertaste, that was almost overwhelming in the beginning but develops into a nice one.

metalspice (156) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - JAN 2, 2015
Ravfarget mot rødt med lavt hvitt skum. Lukter grapefrukt og granbar. Smaker sitrus med mye bitterhet. Kunne vært bedre balansert.
