4.03/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Type: 16-oz. can
Glass: Karl Strauss pint glass
From: Cherokee Market Beer & Wine in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $10.99 for a 4-pack
Purchased: April 12, 2014
Consumed: April 12, 2014
Misc.: Use by June 11, 2014

Poured a caramel, honey murky color with 2-to-3 fingers of pillowy white head. Serene setting, but then moved to a good amount of bubbles coming up underneath the foam. Layered foamy lacing along the sides. Good retention on the top all the way down.

Smelled a pleasant mix of hops. Got resin, rye, citrus (grapefruit, grapefruit rind) and floral. Also some iced tea, caramel, sugary notes, lemon, peppery notes and buttery notes.

Tasted pretty close to the nose. Got resin hops, rye hops, floral hops and citrus hops. Fairly bitter. Grapefruit rind, iced tea, lemon, peppery spices and buttery notes. I do not like buttery notes, but I’ll make an exception here.

Medium-to-light body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Longer, slightly bitter finish.

A very good beer and my first from Modern Times. I look forward to trying some more in the coming weeks.

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

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

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.
