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.

Dark golden brown poured from pint can. Wonderful head that produces lacing. Head remains throughout the experience. Smells piney with a hint of bread.Taste is a wonderful piney hops forward experience pulled into balance by a solid roasted malt backbone. Slightly bitter aftertaste, but quite drinkable.

Overall an excellent beer that I could see having a few of. Big thanks to Jay (BeerXKing) for sending this as an extra.

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.
