Can amarga/o be used, like the english word bitter, to describe someone's attitude?

Yes, it is also applicable for this context.

    To me, there is not much difference between bitter and sour.

    A lemon is sour, a hoppy beer is bitter, tomatoes are acidic, and a dry red wine is astringent (tannins, also in some fruits, especially the unripe).

    Salad greens are bitter (especially chicory, escarole, radicchio), pineapple is acidic, bad milk is sour, and cranberries, quince, and teas are astringent (dry puckering).
