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.

12oz can hand delivered from Colorado... Thanks Nick! Pours a dark orange amber with a slight off white head. Scent is crisp orange and grapefruit with resinous hops. Taste is very piney and resinous up front with a bit of grapefruit and quite bitter. Has a bit of sticky mouth feel and the hop bomb lingers after it has been consumed. Tasty IPA.

Pours a hazy orange-brown with light white head. A sweet fruit malt and pine aroma. A strong malt based IPA with fruit malts and caramel but also with floral hops, pine and grains. A heavy beer with a lingering fruit malt and bitter hop aftertaste.

Mindwarp (167) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 8, 2016
*Notes* Pours a dark golden, big head and lots of lacing. Aroma of pine and citrus. Taste was bitter which covered up most of the citrus flavor. Ok IPA could have used more flavor. Maybe it was a bit old??

PhillyCraft (5486) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 5, 2016
At freshcraft, This gross little lady pours red-brown....what the fuck? Tastes as sweet and malty as it looks but there’s also lots of booze in this hoppy treat. Notes of bread, caramel, rubbing alcohol, astringent grain, pine, and sweet resin. Finish has some blood and rust ok top of some wet paint, and ash wood. Terrible

Keg at Brewdog Liverpool. A clear amber colour with a frothy white head. Aroma of pine, orange, grapefruit, slight passion fruit, some caramel, a little toasted malts and spicy hops. Taste of pine, resin, grapefruit, orange, a little passion fruit, some caramel, subtle toasted malts and slight spicy hops. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A long, bittersweet, resinous hop bitterness in the finish. Wow! Very piney and grapefruity, the description wasn’t lying. Big hoppy flavours balanced well with caramelly and toasted malts.
