4.23/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Glass Used: Nonic

Appearance: Reddish copper body with a bone white head that held the consistency of whipped stiff egg whites. Very effervescent.

Smell: Nostrils fill with bursts of citrus & pine, then by a huge load of dank and green onion. One whiff of this, I new Nelson Sauvin hops were used (thanks TG's Zeelander) but in moderation. Sweet malt shines through as well, supporting the other hop aromas.

Taste: Having had a couple of beers that have used only Mosaic or Nelson hops, those flavors really pop for me. Citrus, fruity and dank. Lots of dank here. Bready malts are there again, supporting his hoppy friends. A slight bitterness lingers around well after the finish. Very tasty.

Mouthfeel: A slight bit of stickiness finishing dry. Well carbonated.

Overall: I feel the Nelson hop needs to be used very judiciously due to it strong flavor profile. Modern Times has done so here. This is a very well balanced, well hopped red amber that I would love to have again. Loved this one.

4.74/5  rDev +15.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

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).
