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.

At initial glance, I’d have to say this beer is overrated due to being in a can. Even for an IPA, it’s a bit too bitter/resiny to be much better. It is certainly enjoyable, but needs a bit more balance as the Northwest style hops are overwhelming.

scarletfire65 (1091) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Can at home. Amber orange pour. Aroma is sweet malt with some fresh citrus . Full bodied. Fruity floral hops with notes of jasmine and orange give way to a very sweet malty base. Finishes bitter and fruity.

Pours deep amber with low head. Good amount of hops even if it seems old. Citrus and resin drives the beer with a moderate malty base.

sthlm (1246) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 12, 2015
[On-tap at Ska] Reddish amber with a nice off-white head. Aroma is citrusy grapefruit, and hard to get a lot else with the sampler. Good level of bitterness in the taste, with a decent amount of grapefruit and some mild muskmelon and watermelon rind up front. This gives way to a solid amount of malt towards the end. Good full mouthfeel; smooth, long finish. A very solid IPA, but doesn’t quite bump up into the spectacular range.

Tselloufc88 (224) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2015
Can from Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Love this beer, strong aromas of pine, sweet orange, slightly onion, dank as anything. Taste is marmalade, tropical fruits, nice malty background. Decent bitter finish but not a tongue scraper. This is exceptional.

Always a classic, this beer has a great color for an IPA, and I love that there is a good malt character to it as opposed to only being hoppy
