This pours a dark dark dark brooding black with a very nice hoppy nose (yeah yeah I know always carrying on about hops). Modus does some outstanding brews with my personal favourite at the moment being the Former Tenant and here’s where it gets weird….
This tastes like a darker slightly smokey version of a Former Tenant. More than just inspired by the Tenant it actually tastes like it!! It’s not a bad thing, it’s just a thing. I really like the Tenant so I love this, definitely a nice black IPA. If I had to criticize anything it would be that they could have developed a slightly more smokey/chocolatey etc profile. Goes well in a Canimal from the Robin Hood Hotel bottlo.
Cheers I’m off to crack another one. Well done Modus yet again.
