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.

12 oz. can. Taking a break from compiling my GTMW beers with something at home. Hell, I had to sip it out of the can right away. Got a nice mouthful of scrumptious hop bitterness. Just one sip gave me a little bot of gas return. Pours great brownish amber with gold highlights, big foamy IPA head. Got this in April, despite being well canned, the hops have settled somewhat, leaving mostly a light piny bitterness. Taste is a refreshing smack of hops, just right for any hardcore hophead. Lighter carbonation gives it a bit of a cask feel that makes it go down just fine.

Vells (652) - LATVIA - JUL 24, 2014
Great brew! Strong maltiness in background, bit caramel and bomb of pleasant citrus hops, grapefruit and awesome peach, light grassy and piney. Quite sweet with perfect hop bitterness for me. Smooth. Again - awesome thirst quencher combined with qualities of huge beer.

Can. Deep copper with a beautiful off white head. Huge pine west coast nose. Herbal as it warms. Sticky lacing throughout. Medium body and low warmth. Balanced with a caramel maltiness. Loads of grapefruit, leafy greens and pine battle for supremacy. Easy drinker.

Pours clear amber with orange notes, with good, thick top and lasing. Aroma is pleasant mix of citrus, spruce and grassy hops, sweet but lacks intensity to be great beer. Taste is light sweet with medium to heavy hops bitter, leaving long lasting resiny bitter aftertaste. Huge body and thickness for PA, flavor seems intense malty and hoppy although not too sweet, interesting. Light to none dry finish. Liked. Could compare with canned version.

skmikeg (841) - Poway, California, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Pours a copper-orange with a half finger off white head with decent lacing. Aroma is of pine, citrus (grapefruit and orange), tropical fruits, sweet malts, caramel, and light grassy hops. Taste is citrus, pine, tropical fruits, sweet malts, caramel, grassy hops, and some herbal hops. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a moderately bitter, slightly dry, medium-long finish. Overall, a pretty tasty IPA that is well balanced with a nice malt backbone to balance its hops.

Fin kobberfarge med et off white skum som hang litt i glassveggen. Deilig aroma av malt, karamell, furunål, grapefrukt og moden frukt. Smaken følger aroma og har en lang fin ettersmak.
