4.38/5  rDev +7.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A: Dense soapy looking white head built from the can into the glass and sustained for a few minutes before receding. Dark copper to orange liquid with moderate haze. After the head fell there was spotty lacing on the edge of the glass.

S: Huge tropical aroma, stone fruit, peaches, mangos and pineapple. Light toasty malt aroma, but overall balance is on the hop side.

T: Extremely juicy and fresh fruit flavored hop bitterness. Mangos and peach (similar to the aroma) also a moderate pine tree flavor. Toasty and caramel malt flavors are subtley sweet and compliments the juicy hop flavors nicely.

M: Crisp and clean fermentation character. The body low with carbonation being on the mild side. The body feels a little thin for the style but for the lighter ABV I think it works.

O: Extremely flavorful, sesionable and uniquely flavored. Modern Times was a great find in San Diego and I would recommend a trip if you are in the area. Not a bad beer in their lineup.

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).
