COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not so long ago there was a war, an IBU war, in which breweries raced to brew a beer with more bitterness than anyone could imagine. During this dark period, IPAs seemed required to be bitter by definition, some people liked them, some people did not. Who knows the winner of that war, but thankfully it is finally over and it’s time for the new school of IPAs! These IPAs focus on the flavors and aromas of that glorious green cone… the hop…and not on melting your face with bitterness for no real reason. Man O’ War is a new school IPA! Bright tropical fruits and juicy citrus in the nose are followed by a mouthful of resiny citrus and just a wee bit of clean bitterness to balance it all out. Much less bitter than many IPAs out there, yet so much hoppier.

BeerZack (288) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Thick bright white head that leaves a nice lacing. Smells very citrusy, orange and grapefruit with a grassy or piney edge. Delicious. Taste is much more resiny pine and grass clippings than anything else. The bitterness seems a bit coarse.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2017 Lightly hazy yellow orange pour with a white and sticky lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, herbal, and grassy. Taste is grapefruit rind, herbal, toffee, and earthy hops. Medium body.

kerenmk (5028) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 10, 2016
On tap at Pinthouse Pizza, Austin, TX, 26.4.2016. Clear gold, white head. Fresh citrus hoppiness in the nose - white grapefruit. Dry, fresh hoppy bitterness, a hint of onion that’s becoming more and more dominant with every sip. Medium body, bitter, hoppy finish.

2.5
sholbert (38) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 29, 2016
There’s a smokey note on the nose. Below that are dank, piney hops. Oily, herbaceous, piney on the palate and still a hint of toast in there. Don’t love it.

A solidly above average classical ipa with modest bitterness and nice if not powerful citrusy and resiny flavors. A good drinking beer.
