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.

Tastes like drinking one giant hop. Basicaly undrinkable. I honestly gagged after each sip. A beer should have taste. Overloading with hops is not equal to taste. Avoid at all costs.

Pershing (566) - Garland, Texas, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Pours dark copper color with a thin beige head that diminishes quickly. Piney hop aroma and an overwhelming hop bitterness up front that cancels out everything else in the beer. Finishes dry.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2012 poured into a pint glass from can. Pours a dark orange color with a small head. Very resiny aromas along with hops, christmas spices and citrus aromas. medium bodied with a nice feel. There is a very resiny finish with some spices as well. The flavors are slightly disjointed a bit. a very solid hoppy beer. On the fresher side, but doesn’t do anything that is amazing.

Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 14, 2011
Pours a hazy copper colour, head is modest to medium and off-white. Aroma is fruity and of alcohol. Taste is a predictable bitter, however balanced out nicely by the malts. Texture is thinner than expected. (Can)

ChairMissing (20) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - DEC 12, 2011
Can into a tulip. Pours a deep dark-red orange, with a tan off white head leaving little lacing. A fantastic piney resin smacks you in the face with a slight citrus note at the end. Taste is a little too bitter up front, followed by a sweet middle and dry finish. Overall a good IPA.

doppelthat (47) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 12, 2011
Poured from a 12oz can into a pint glass. The aroma is of great citrusy and piney hops. It pours a orangey gold body with a thick sticky off white head that leaves great lacing. It tastesmuch like the nose would suggest, citrusy bitter with a nice bit of sweetness in the body to cut into the hops. Moderatley carbonated and easy drinking, an IPA that you could drink anytime of the year.

wlajwl (6884) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 9, 2011
Aroma is an equal mix of pine and citrus. The flavor is similar to the aroma along with grapefruit and a bit of orange and leads into a bitter finish. A straightforward ale that’s doesn’t have any big bells and whistles, just a very good IPA.

This Beer is fantastic! It’s opened my eyes, very strong hopiness. I totally love it. I hope that I can find something similar in Ottawa.

ccex (1327) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2011
My favorite canned IPA. As the name implies, this one has a strong hop aroma with a bit of citrus. Pours a normal yellow/amber. Slightly bitter taste with something else (slight malts?) at the back of the throat. Nothing too outrageous, but nothing negative at all. I enjoyed the more on the second try than the first.
