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.

KajII (783) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - DEC 31, 2012
12oz Can. The pour was a clear copper orange with an average (1-2 finger) off white bubbly head that reduced down to a thin puddled film and small collar with excellent sticky sheets of lacing. The aroma was of a light biscuit malt, pine hops and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel, toffee, citrus (grapefruit) and a light tropical fruitiness (pineapple I believe). The taste was lightly malty sweet with a hint of caramel and a mild fruitiness from the start, becoming nice and hoppy with dose of citrus, a hint of toffee and a bitter citrus peel ending. The flavor lasted for a good long time following the swallow, with a slightly sweet bitter hoppy taste that was left to linger for a while longer. Mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body with an exceptionally dry texture and a carbonation that was a little more than mild. Overall this was a decent enough IPA with a good strong bitterness along with a touch of fruit and mild sweetness, making this a nice and easy to drink brew...

Brenhophead (629) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 23, 2015
355mL can that pours copper with a big fluffy off white head. Pleasant piney/grapefruit aroma, mostly a resinous pine in the flavour but it also has a nice citrus kick.

Klar och vacker bergstensfärdgad bärs. Förförande doft. Len och lättdrucken. God IPA som levererar enligt konstens alla regler.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2015 Drucken på burk. Överraskande bra bira. Fin kopparfärg med vit krona. Smaker av citrus, persika och tallskog. En del humle. Lättdrucken och väldigt god.

Picked up a single can from total wine with a best by date of 4/13/15. Drinking it at the pool, so straight out of the can. Great aroma out of the can very inviting. Very nice mouthfeel. Tropical fruit galore. Top knotch beer. Worthy of its high rating.

Madsen1635 (357) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2015
Can. Hazy dark amber pour with significant white head. Aroma is lovely. Lots of peach and citrus. Taste is very balanced - can something be too balanced?. Well this all together very nice. Medium carbonation

theOptimator (300) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Aroma is citrus pine candied sugar and caramel. Appearance is hazy copper with small off white head. Taste is piney citrus floral aroma hopping forward. Sweet caramel maltiness with a crisp bitterness present. More malt than most IPA’s. Palate is crisp with a lingering sweetness and aroma hopping. Overall very nice. Malt is unique and hops are done well.

Piney hop aroma. Clear darker yellow. Huge hop profile overwhelms any malt present. Dry clean crisp finish. A super nice ipa.

Don’t think this beer has travelled well as the hops while evident are very muted.
