34. Modus Hoperandi
> Brewery: Ska Brewing Co. (Colorado)
> Beer Advocate avg. rating: 4.1 out of 5

A smooth, almost elegant American-style IPA, as forthrightly hoppy as its name would suggest, with a rich mouth-feel and a nice bitter finish.

33. Vicky Virago
> Brewery: Resident Culture Brewing Company (North Carolina)
> Beer Advocate avg. rating: 4.52 out of 5

Ranked “world class” by Beer Advocate; tropical fruit in the nose, rich and citrusy on the palate; tastes deceptively soft for its 8.50% ABV. (Resident Culture is known for its imaginative beer names — Whatever You Feel Just Dance It, The Inevitability of Change, Inked in the Womb, Quantum Wobble, etc.)
