Poured from a can into a pint glass
A: Red-honey colored with a thin vanilla head. This is probably one of the clearest beers i have ever reviewed. Who ever is the clarifying person at Modern Times needs a raise! Great lacing on this one also the head really sticks to the glass!
S: Dank! Fills the immediate area as soon as you pop the can! Pine, sweet malt, pineapple, tangerine, wheat bread, and more pine. Smells great!
T: Malt hits the tongue first followed by an explosion of piney hops! That all flows back to a solid amber back bone. Sweet biscuit, honey, pine, floral notes, orange, tangerine, grapefruit, white grape, pine again, and whole wheat with honey on it. Really tasty.
M: Thin and lager like on the attack until the hop bomb detonates and then it becomes thick and resiny. Goes down light to medium bodied range and sticky.
O: Awesome Brew! First time drinking Modern Times and i must say i am impressed! The only real gripe I have is it is a bit thin on the mouthfeel at first but it definitely makes up for it in its hop profile! Best compared to a more balanced-amber version of Sculpin. They share a pretty similar hope profile and i must admit i might like this more. If you are a fan of Sculpin you have to check this one out. Definitely impressed and made MT's nitch in the SD beer scene pretty solid!

Dank you (ha!), Abraham.
Pouring a mildly hazy amber with a dense, off-white head with excellent retention and lacing, this looks great! The nose is bright, fresh and dank, with a blend of dank weed and citrus pith. While inspired by Nugget Nectar, with the bready, toffee-like note with a hint of caramel present, it does add a unique twist with an oatmeal character that's surprisingly noticeable.
Opening with a big, bright and dank pine resin hop blast with moderate grapefruit, candied orange and some weed, this is excellent. An oatmeal-like creaminess is present on the mid-palate, working well with the hops. Also present is a mild sweetness with notes of toffee and brown sugar. Drying on the finish, moderately bitter and plenty pine-y, this beer is medium-light in body, moderately carbonated and thoroughly enjoyable. Excellent stuff.

3.7/5 rDev -9.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Pours a surprisingly light amber color (for an amber!) with a magnificently formed head that coats the glass and leaves streaks and spots of lacing
Smell: The label says it is dank and it is dank, with caramel and citrus pith tones
Taste: Caramel, with buttery diacetyl building underneath; the dank and pithy hops take over, in the middle, bringing an unusual combination of starfruit and melon to the mix; the buttery elements of the malt are a bit strong, in the finish
Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation
Overall: I was excited to try the beers from this brewery and this one has sat in my fridge for a couple of months too long, perhaps, taking the hops in a different direction than the brewer intended, I will have to try a fresher example the next time I see this one
Thanks, lincolnbeard, for the opportunity
