MODUS OPERANDI FORMER TENANT RED IPA

Modus Operandi Former Tenant Red IPA. Situated in Mona Vale on Sydney’s northern beaches is Modus Operandi.

Husband and wife team Grant and Jaz Wearin started operations in late July 2014 and head brewer, DJ McCready, is the former senior brewer and head of the specialty beer program at Oskar Blues Brewery in North Carolina.

Along with expert knowledge of brewing US style beers he has also implemented an Australian first: takeway one-litre cans that are filled directly from the brewery taps.

The brewery collected four trophies at the Craft Beer Industry Association (CBIA) Craft Beer Awards 2014 including the the Kegstar Trophy for Champion Australian Craft Beer for their Former Tenant Red IPA.

The Former Tenant pays homage to the tenant that previously occupied the brewery site who had a passion for indoor hydroponics. It’s a Red IPA hopped with Mosaic and Galaxy and it’s 7.8% ABV.

Amber red colour with a fine, slightly yellow head with small hop oil bubbles. Strong citrus and pine aroma. Medium body and moderation carbonation. Strong resinous pine and citrus, underlying tropical fruit nicely balanced with a caramel malt backbone. The hop flavours linger nicely. Despite the relatively high ABV it doesn’t taste boozy or bittersweet. It’s flavoursome and dangerously drinkable.

A fine addition to the Sydney craft beer community.
