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.

Grape and citrus in the aroma. Medium carbonation. Dry and medium bitter finish. The taste is similar. Just enought malt to balance it all up. A good one!

Really pouring get golden with a white head. Nose is hoppy rich with pine and citric notes. Taste is also rich with a lot of citrus and some pine. Taste and palate comes along and leaves a sweet but still bitter note with a lot of hops along.

This beer is not for me. To try and describe the smell/flavour I would say old orange peel, or the same flavours I find in both lagunitas and sierra Nevada. So if you like either of those beers this is up your street.

Can from Bruisiní Ales. Citrus, resin, and pine aroma. Citrus and pine taste with raisin notes and a moderate bitterness. Good stuff, but wish it was fresher.

BeerDays (1) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 26, 2016 does not count
To be fair I drank this in a plastic cup in a shopping mall in Singapore. But my surprise in scoring such a well rated craft beer was a little dampened by the overall experience. Itís good but Iíd heard a lot about his beer and expected better. Plenty of length on the pallet, fairly well rounded overall. Quite citrusy. Maybe a little too much for me. But a lovely sweetness down the back too. Great colour. Would happily go again but wonít win best US IPa for me.

laakus (89) - Nossebro, - MAR 24, 2016
Amber colour with nice foam. SHarp citrusy aroma, some pine mixed with a soapy fragrance!? This one also has the not so pleasant smell Taste is surprisingly malty, the sparkling fruityness not appearing and dominated in the end by an unpleasant bitterness, almost no carbonation at all! I count this one as a bad example of the beer.

6bottlepack (55) - Devon, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2016 Can from Hops & Crafts Exeter,pours beautifully clear bronze with a dense white head,aroma is very piney withfruit & spicy notes with some burnt caramel taste is initially fresh pine with pinapple & some bitter grapefruit with good malt back up almost like burnt caramel & nice bitterness maybe slightly astringent leading into the pleasing bitter hoppy finish ,but for me what makes this beer stand out is its mouth feel smooth & medium bodied ,slightly oily with low to medium carbonation that kinda leaves u wanting more!

Nonshaugen (333) - Fetsund, NORWAY - MAR 16, 2016
33 cl, can condtioned. Best before May 12 2016, so itís not fresh. Slightly hazy, dark golden, thin head, sediments floating, low level of carbonation. Aroma is surprisingly malty, very faint hop notes. Mouthfeel is dry and bitter, but I think this can is a bit too old. This was really not what I was looking forward to, so the rating is unfair.

Funky smell - sort of like a Christmas tree. Taste has the creaminess of a DIPA but has way more pine and a grapefruit aftertaste. Not overly bitter. Excellent.
