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!

Received as an extra in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip.
A - Pours a crystal clear copper hue with a nice fat one finger head that fades to leave a nice creamy blanket. Solid
S - Aromas of caramel, pine resin, sweeter malts, rather balanced albeit light. Slight earthiness too
T - Taste is light caramel, some pine, faint citrus, light peppery hops with slight spice. Malts are slightly heavier with this, perhaps not super super fresh. Still, a solid amber.
M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, clean, crisp, slightly thin though and the alcohol is lightly noticeable.
O - Overall, a solid amber ale. Nice appearance and aroma though wish it was a bit hoppier. Still, not all that bad.
