I haven't written a review in a while, but this beer alone made me change that.
I was practicing with my band and happened to see a beer tasting sign outside of a warehouse across the street from us. After practice I went in to check the place out. Modern Times! Never heard of it, but I'll give it a try. I wanted something I could take home. I didn't want a growler so I asked them about their cans. I was interested in an IPA, but unfortunately they don't can the ones they offer. The bartender told me that this was very much like an IPA, very dank and hoppy. Why not? I grabbed a 4 pack and headed home.
Later on I cracked open a can and the smell just jumped right out at me. Wow! Sweet, piney, citrusy. It really smells like an IPA. I poured it into a pint glass and found it to look like an IPA as well, but maybe slightly more "amber." It poured with a white foamy head. The smell really took off once I poured it.
Now time for the taste. A nice punchy hoppiness with some pine, citrus, and tropical fruit. Maybe a little caramel too. The balance between hops and malt is quite good in this brew. I could drink this all day.
Now comes the mouthfeel. Very thick and filling. Not syrupy or oily, but very full bodied. I wish it were a bit crisper and lighter. Oh well, fantastic beer nonetheless.
Overall, I'm very very impressed. Reminds me a lot of Nugget Nectar. So good. I'll need to return another time to try Modern Times' other offerings. If they're as good as Blazing World this brewery will be going places.

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

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.
