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.

(12oz bottle) pours deep rusty amber, head with oily bubbles that lasts the duration. Nose of toasted caramel, quite floral, light grapefruit and honey. Taste of honey, toasted bread/caramel, light citrus bitterness, with a medium thick oily body. Nothing offensive in this at all.

Upon first sips and pours, this might be one of my favorite IPAís. Pours a dark copper with a thin head, aroma is hoppy...nice balance of citrus & floral. Taste can be comparable to Bellís Two Hearted, a hint of malt with an abundance of hops and a great finish. Maybe itís the can???

Special thanks to my friend JT for obtaining this brew from a fellow friend out in Colorado. Very nice aroma of grapefruit and citrus. I think this may be a bit dated, but yet the hops have not faded much. Very drinkable and quite solid.

An IPA in a can thatís not Surly? From Colorado? Sounds like some pretentious hippie bullshit to me HOWEVER this is a very solid, intriguing basic IPA. Smells weird but Iíll cut it some slack cause I have a cold. Itís pungent enough to break through somewhat, Iíll give it that much. Real nice looking for an IPA, dark-ish and pretty murky, poured with a pretty wild beige head and nice lacing. Mouth is decent, medium body and sort of gritty, again a little out there as IPAs go. Taste is perfectly hopped and dry as hell how I like it. Reminds me of Sierra Nevada Torpedo, not quite as good though. The flavor is very well executed but ultimately pretty simple. I dig this brew for sure.

Bottled at Monkís Cafť Wallingatan, Stockholm. Hazy orange, small head. Aroma of lemon and glue. Dryish and surprisingly light bodied, heavily carbonated. Orange hops dissolved in chlorine and glue, growing resiny bitterness.

arondee (568) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 11, 2010
Pours a thick looking amber color with a small white head. The nose is mostly citrus and piney hops. The taste is bitter earthy piney hops and some malts to balance it out. Overall itís a good IPA. Itís better than average, especially for something found in a can, but it wonít knock your socks off. A bit too piney for me.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2010 Good IPA with an amazing pine aroma. I know itís 7% ABV, but it seems a little too malty for an IPA, and the hops is not quite there for me...and the mouth feel is a tad off.
