Modus Hoperandi

12 oz can from the Beer Dispensary, Apex, NC, USA.
I’ve had this beer a few times before, but this is the first review.
There is absolutely no doubt that the nose that the beer generates is absolutely unique and extraordinary. A big, fat, green, fresh hop presence that lingers and is the highlight of the beer for me.
The copper colored, clear body gives a tremendously impressive head and a lot of sticky lace. Good signs.
Some metallic notes and plenty of bitterness that lingers and drives the beer into some dark territory. The beer is actually increasingly aggressive and doesn’t let up much. Slight alcohol burn in the back end, finish and burn in the end. Plenty of resinous pine but lacks much grapefruit based sweetness. Quite harsh but paradoxically drinkable.
Hoppy burps ensue.
Hop heads dream, and aggressive, American, modern classic.
