Notes & Commercial Description:

This beer is the stickiest of the icky. It's a luxuriously hoppy amber loaded up with intemperate quantities of Nelson, Mosaic, and Simcoe hops, which are some of the fruitiest, dankest hops sweet, sweet money can buy. Despite its amber hue, Blazing World is pleasingly dry, sporting a lightly bready malt backbone that serves as platform for the huge & complex hop profile.

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!

A: Viscous tangerine.

S: Dank, resinous hops that are orange-like in character. Mango, nectarine.

T: Peach, mandarin or tangerine, hoppy but not overly bitter.

M: The thickness of a double or triple IPA without being too astringent on the finish.

O: Super impressed with this one. Apparently a "hoppy-dank amber" lies somewhere between a double IPA and an imperial red in taste and mouthfeel (though without the higher ABV).

Nice dank, resiny aroma! Taste follows with some piney hoppiness. Mouthfeel is light medium with prickly carbonation. Not much bitterness. Overall tasty brew.
