BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Modern Times Beer
California, United States | website

Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.80%

Availability: Rotating

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.

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.

We don't get Modern Times distro'd in Marin County so finding this on Maui is a treat.
Not sure how fresh it is (16oz can poured into a basic ass glass) but there isn't one thing that I can point to that would render this beer anything less than outstanding/awesome. So it could be a week, a month or three months old. If more than a month, I might B my L in my P if I tried this fresh.
Dank, hoppy nose, a sexy golden hue, good creamy lacing and by damned if this isn't my favorite of the four MT beers I've tried while here on Maui.

Ive had this beer at the brewery and out of a can. Both are WONDERFUL. Awesome DANK aroma and a bit of citrus. Flavor is out of this world. Sweet, dank, smooth, balanced. Makes you want more.

Pours light copper in color, clear, with one inch head. Taste is amazing wet hops, mango, and light grapefruit and biscuit. Tastes exceptionally fresh. Would really like Modern Times to come up here full time. This is another hoppy beer I would get often

50cl can. Clear dark amber with a modest white head. Pine, grapefruit and caramel, and a silky smoot texture with low carbonation. Very nice.
