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.

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.
