Pours a lightly hazy copper color - soapy, clinging lace - herbal, peppery hops in the nose, with some bright fruitiness and moderate caramel malt base - the flavor has an initial spicy hop kick, followed by medium sweet caramel - this is followed by a very bright, vibrant fruity character, grapefruit tang, a second blast of hops - fairly earthy - pretty tasty.

Excellent IPA. Pours an amber with a head that has somewhat nonuniform bubbles. Lots of citrus aroma, orange rind, hint of grapefruit, and some pine. The taste has plenty of piney, citrus notes, and well as a malt flavor that is not completely over powered by the hops. Finish quick, dry, some bitter, but amazingly smooth. All around, itís really excellent.

From can. Pours a beautiful burnt orange with about one finger of white head. Good retention and lacing. Nose is an absolute delight--aggressive and "weedy." Taste is a lot of hops with some citrus and a layer of booze in the middle. Smooth, moist finish that literally leaves my mouth watering. Great hop character, great balance, great beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A - Pours an almost clear amber color that resembles iced tea. A 1 finger white head melts into a frothy cap with a raised collar that holds on to the glass.
S - Sweet ruby red grapefruit, woody pine, toffee malt, mint.
T - Pine comes out first then a blast of mint leaf hits, the caramel malt brings in some cookie-like sweetness and rides out until the finish. Leafy mint and grapefruit rind take over toward the finish and coat the mouth with different kind of bitterness.
M - Medium body, crisp, adequate carbonation.
I picked this up randomly and Iím glad I did. Lots of leafy mint and citrus rind hops going on as well as a solid malt bill. This provides an afterburner type bitterness. Well done. Iím looking forward to trying more beers from this brewery.

Type: 12-oz. can
Glass: Hotel glass (half pint, half snifter)
From: Wilburís Total Beverage in Fort Collins, Colo.
Price: Part of a variety 6-pack for $9.99
Purchased: May 2, 2013
Consumed: May 3, 2013
Poured a dark caramel amber color with two fingers of off-white head. Nice amount of spread out lacing on the sides. Average retention all the way down.
Smelled all sorts of hops, starting with resin hops. Also citrus hops (grapefruit, orange peel) and floral hops. Skunky resin really dominates here.
Taste was a bit out of whack. Lots of different flavors that really didnít work well together. The resin hops comes in first, but is not as dominant as the smell. Could taste the alcohol for sure and it reminded me a bit of aftershave. Kind of heavy and grainy. Faint floral hops and some grapefruit citrus hops. Very bitter.
Medium body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Bitter finish that was way too much alcohol.
The alcohol here just dominates. Not a big fan and Iíll do my best not to try it again. Maybe just a skunky can?

Bra alternativ till punk ipa när det gäller husöl. Denna kan man alltid ha hemma, funkar i många tillfällen. Jämfört med punk ipa är denna lite beskare, lite sötare, saknar den extrema citruskaraktär som punken har. Det den saknar i friskhet mot punken tar den igen i sötma, beska och kropp. En grymt stabil hus-öl.

A good standard IPA. Citrus and grape flavours with a nice bitterness makes Modus one good and tasty IPA.

A clear golden colored beer, with a white foamy head. The aroma of some fruits with hops and grapes. The taste has some fruits, grapes. A lot of hope bitter. The aftertaste is a little sweet and a nice hop bitter.

Can at home, 19th April 2013, cracked the can and you can get the aroma straight away, loads of citrus hops. Taste is caramel that gives way to pine and not overly bitter citrus, perfect carbonation and palate for my taste. Great canned IPA

A pint from the tap.
Clear deep copper color with a minimal head.
Fruity nose, with caramel and some citrus hops.
Sweet candy flavor, toffee, some honey and strangely low bitterness.
Medium bodied, short finish, feels more like an amber ale or an EBS.
