BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Modern Times Beer
California, United States | website

Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.80%

Availability: Rotating

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.

16oz can poured into a Dogfish Head signature glass.

A - Pours a super clear medium amber color with a thick finger of fluffy pale tan head with excellent staying power. Nice webs of lacing left on the glass.

S - Resiny pine, thick grapefruit and fruity tropical notes of mango. Mild caramel maltiness, lightly buttery and bready at the base.

T - Buttery, toffee-ish and biscuit malt base...overall earthiness to the malt. Hops are medium level bitterness - not as potent as I expected given the aroma and the claimed 85 IBU on the can. Pine hop flavors and some grapefruit, although overall they are quite muted in the flavor.

M - Medium in body with a lively medium level carbonation. Earthy malt and bitter hops yield a well balanced beer. Hops are resiny and sticky and mostly driven with pine flavors...some grapefruit citrus joins the party too.

O - I expected a lot more intense hop experience here, given the claims on the can. I get mostly piney notes and a sticky resiny feel. Malt is more in the forefront and rather earthy overall. Well balanced beer...wish the hops stood out as much as the can claims they should.

We don't get Modern Times distro'd in Marin County so finding this on Maui is a treat.
Not sure how fresh it is (16oz can poured into a basic ass glass) but there isn't one thing that I can point to that would render this beer anything less than outstanding/awesome. So it could be a week, a month or three months old. If more than a month, I might B my L in my P if I tried this fresh.
Dank, hoppy nose, a sexy golden hue, good creamy lacing and by damned if this isn't my favorite of the four MT beers I've tried while here on Maui.

Ive had this beer at the brewery and out of a can. Both are WONDERFUL. Awesome DANK aroma and a bit of citrus. Flavor is out of this world. Sweet, dank, smooth, balanced. Makes you want more.

Pours light copper in color, clear, with one inch head. Taste is amazing wet hops, mango, and light grapefruit and biscuit. Tastes exceptionally fresh. Would really like Modern Times to come up here full time. This is another hoppy beer I would get often

50cl can. Clear dark amber with a modest white head. Pine, grapefruit and caramel, and a silky smoot texture with low carbonation. Very nice.
