Modus Hoperandi India Pale Ale
(Ska Brewing Company)

Ska Brewing Company Modus Hoperandi IPA

I brought back four cans of Modus Hoperandi from Colorado. I'm down to just this one now and it makes me sad. Ska definitely brews and cans some great beers that is for sure!

From the Ska Brewing site:

"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 woke up in a pine-grove full of grapefruit trees."

Here we go...

Pour - Nice amber/orangey color with a big fluffy head. Clean pour with nice carbonation. You could drink this straight from the can but you'd be missing out on just how good it looks in a glass.

Aroma - BIG intense floral hop aroma. Plenty of that piney and citrusey goodness. Definitely some grapefruit along with a decent amount of sweetness. Ooh la la.

Taste - What can I say? It's awesome! Loads of bitter hop flavor that's balanced extremely well. You want grapefruit, you got it. You want to feel like someone rung out a pine tree in your glass, you got it. This is the real deal when it comes to a very well put together American IPA. Plenty of hops are packed in to this aluminum package, open a can and take advantage. 

Overall - One of my favorite hoppy beers. Extremely drinkable, full bodied with all of the IBUs needed to satisfy my hop fix. 

Note: Ska also cans an their Special ESB, True Blonde and their Euphoria Pale Ale.
