The story: Ska and Camden Town. It was always going to happen, wasn’t it? We were destined to get it on. And what happened when we did hook up (it happened in the back of a van in downtown San Diego…). We drank beer, then drank some more beer, and then drank some more beer. Then someone said: Hey, imagine what would happen if Hells Lager and Modus Hoperandi combined into one super beer? That’d be awesome, man. Let’s do it. Let’s brew it! Let’s brew a Rude Boy lager hopped like a motherfucking IPA! The taste: Just about the most handsome beer you’ll find, it’s bold gold with a fat foam on top. The aroma is insane yet delicate, all citrus fruits and resinous hops. Smooth bodied, there’s some sweet malt in the background before the ripping bitterness powers through and finishes dry, meaning you gotta get another gulp. We love it!

[keg at the Hanging Bat, Edinburgh] Hazy golden yellow, decent white bubbly head from the keg. Big citrus aroma of grapefruit, lemon, lime and some pine. The taste had a touch more of the resin, but was heavily citrus-forward. Didn’t really notice the alcohol at all – finished very well, too. Good beer indeed [19112012]

Keg at Hanging Bat. Pale amber yellow, fluffy white head. Juicy pine, slightly pissy hops, light grapefruit nose. Nice juicy malts, slightly peppery, only a tad lager, more like an IPA, juicy, peppery, reasonably bitter finish.

Tap at bat. Pale golden with decent white head. Lager yeast aroma with some sharp hop notes, slightly pissy, grapefruit, lemon zest and pine. Taste is very lagery, slightly pissy. Quite bitter. It’s alright

On tap at Exmouth Arms Hipsterville. Pale gold slight haze thin white head. Hoppy aroma. Clean taste. Big hoppy finish. Tone down the hops and thos would be world class. Even still pretty damn fantastic

Euston Tap. Hazy gold beer, good white head. Palate is smooth and soft with nice fresh minerally carbonation. Luxuriant creamy malt base. Wonderful fresh fruit hops - vibrant tangerine and mango with traces of peach and lemon. Light floral tones. There is even a little watermelon here. Finishes soft with paradoxical crispy carbonation. Wonderful! Where the hell did this come from? Superb fruity hops. Blown away!
