The Modus has become my Go-To brew. This is not a beer for those that do not enjoy a hoppy beer, which I happened to be just a few months ago. Now I enjoy the "Hoppier the Better" brews and this definitely fits the bill! ---Rated by mcesooner via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Turtles (2465) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 29, 2017
355ml can from Systembolaget. Slightly hazy, copper golden, rocky head, good lacing. Resinous and citrus aroma, grapefruit, orange marmalade, pine and hay. Bone dry mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonated. Pine bitter taste, citrus zesty, resin, grapefruit, caramel and grass. Dry and bitter finish. Very drinkable!

mcberko (16647) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 17, 2017
On tap at Taste of Tops, pours a cloudy dark orange with a medium being head. Aroma brings out earthy hops and dirty yeast. Flavour is similar, with loads of harsh yeast and earth hops, with a finish of harsh astringency. Like the Mandarina version, this is very yeast and harsh. Not good at all.

dnicolaescu (2442) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - APR 2, 2017
Hazy amber, off-white head. Sweet resiny aroma, malts and pine and even something eucalyptus. Similar taste, quite malty but also resiny - kinda like cough syrup or Halls candies. And very little citrus. Good.

hayduke (5140) - Eureka, California, USA - MAR 19, 2017
Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Pours rich amber with a big foamy beige head. It has a resin aroma. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is piney resin. Could be a Nose of pine and grapefruit. Very resinous mouth feel. Flavor is rich caramel malts, with a lot of pine and citrus. Finishes bitter and so resinous it puckers you up. Very tasty, Nice IPA.

TeijoA (65) - Turku, FINLAND - MAR 10, 2017
Nice big fat white head, coppery orange in color. Aromas of caramel, pine, malts. Taste has malt, citric fruit, a little grapefruit at the end. Great classic aroma, moderate hoppiness in a light to medium body, low to medium carbonation. Pleasant with a simplistic but good taste.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2017 Clear amber. White fluffy foam that creates a nice hilly landscape as it sinks in. Nose is alcohol, candy, piney almost a bit burnt, some not so pleasant smells maybe solvent or fuel. Taste is very integrated not really any phases in the experience. Taste: Piney and almost roasted qualities as well as not so pronounced fruit mainly orange and citrus. Altough exciting, it is too much, like a soup of hops with a synthetic touch.
