3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. can. Taking a break from compiling my GTMW beers with something at home. Hell, I had to sip it out of the can right away. Got a nice mouthful of scrumptious hop bitterness. Just one sip gave me a little bot of gas return. Pours great brownish amber with gold highlights, big foamy IPA head. Got this in April, despite being well canned, the hops have settled somewhat, leaving mostly a light piny bitterness. Taste is a refreshing smack of hops, just right for any hardcore hophead. Lighter carbonation gives it a bit of a cask feel that makes it go down just fine.

Can from Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Love this beer, strong aromas of pine, sweet orange, slightly onion, dank as anything. Taste is marmalade, tropical fruits, nice malty background. Decent bitter finish but not a tongue scraper. This is exceptional.

Always a classic, this beer has a great color for an IPA, and I love that there is a good malt character to it as opposed to only being hoppy

It’s hard to believe that the consistent Modus Hoperandi clocks in at a steaming 6.8%. An incredibly well balanced modern IPA (hops well and truly to the front, but with some malt coming through, delivering its high drinkability), I always try to keep a couple of cans in the fridge, but, more often than not, I just neck the lot as it’s deceptively sessionable.

12 oz. can from backlog notes. Pours a clear deep amber color with a small beige head that tries to hang around. The aroma had resiny hops, caramel malts, grapefruit citrus, mild floral notes, tea, with light spice. The flavor had pine resin, floral hops, grapefruit citrus, caramel malts, lightly toasted bread and a splash of tea. Medium light bodied, mild to moderate bitterness, decent IPA.
