Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: mactrail on 06-30-2013

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.

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.
