COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Itís 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.

Itís hard to believe that the consistent Modus Hoperandi clocks in at a steaming 6.8%. An incredibly well balanced modern IPA (hops well and truly to the front, but with some malt coming through, delivering its high drinkability), I always try to keep a couple of cans in the fridge, but, more often than not, I just neck the lot as itís deceptively sessionable.

Clear amber beer with a white head.
Nose: Pine, grass, orange, grapefruit, resin and caramel malt.
Taste: A lot of hops. Smooth caramel malt, citrus, pine, honey and herbs.
Body: Medium body and soft carbonation. Smooth and easy to drink. Bitter at the end.

A really great IPA!

12 oz. can from backlog notes. Pours a clear deep amber color with a small beige head that tries to hang around. The aroma had resiny hops, caramel malts, grapefruit citrus, mild floral notes, tea, with light spice. The flavor had pine resin, floral hops, grapefruit citrus, caramel malts, lightly toasted bread and a splash of tea. Medium light bodied, mild to moderate bitterness, decent IPA.

Moebbels (432) - FINLAND - MAY 15, 2015
Pors a clear dark orange body with a frothy white head that leaves lacing on the glass. Nose has intense hoppy notes of grapefruit, resin, pine needles, as well as some sweet caramel. Taste is quite makty and sweet but the hops take over and lead to a lingering, bitter finish. Carbonation is on the soft side and palate is rich and syrupy but not cloying. Excellent and well balanced IPA that is on the malty side.

Can @ Mr.Orla meets Shaun Hill, Odense. Pre C4 Pale Ale Festival, 2015. Pours cloudy Copper with a small egg white head. Caramel, crackers and bread - the hops fled the scene. Vague peach. Fine amber ale is what this has become!

Poured bronze in colour with big foamy white head. Aroma is hops, and lots of them. Pine, and citrus aroma. Taste is again dominated by citrussy hops. Nice bitterness. Doesnt have much balance with the malt but i dont care. Fantastic IPA
