SKA "Modus Hoperandi"
SKA Brewing - Durango, Colorado USA
IPA (ABV 6.8%) (IBU 65)

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

Rating: 3.6/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 14/20

The pour was a clear copper orange with an average (1-2 finger) off white bubbly head that reduced down to a thin puddled film and small collar with excellent sticky sheets of lacing.

The aroma was of a light biscuit malt, pine hops and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel, toffee, citrus (grapefruit) and a light tropical fruitiness (pineapple I believe).

The taste was lightly malty sweet with a hint of caramel and a mild fruitiness from the start, becoming nice and hoppy with dose of citrus, a hint of toffee and a bitter citrus peel ending. The flavor lasted for a good long time following the swallow, with a slightly sweet bitter hoppy taste that was left to linger for a while longer.

Mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body with an exceptionally dry texture and a carbonation that was a little more than mild.

Overall this was an extremely tasty IPA with a good strong bitterness along with a touch of fruit and mild sweetness, making this a nice and easy to drink brew...
