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.

Grabbed a can to see how "hoppy" and "dank" it really was...

Poured a nice golden color with a little sticky head. The head quickly receded back into the beer.

Blazing World has a good smell to it. Not too overpowering but definitely gives its presence.

Taste and mouthfeel are solid. You taste hops mixed with a slight malt finish. I'm not a big malty guy yet it's not overpowering. Herbal hop flavors finish it off, leaving a nice little lingering taste of caramel and citrus.

Simply put, I dig it. I'll definitely grab this out of the fridge mid week to not overpower my palate with heavier IPA and IIPA's I usually look to drink.

If you're looking for a solid beer to grill to, sit around the pool, or watch a ball game, this will satisfy without putting you on your caboose.

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.
