I love this beer. However, I dont at all understand why they call this a hoppy-dank-amber. Its not amber. They even go ahead and list the SRM on the can. Its 9, which is not even close to being an amber! I dont get it. Anyway, Im rating this as an IPA because if I rated it as an amber I would have a much lower appearance score. So, as an IPA here goes:

A: Golden, cloudy, nice creamy head and retention.

S: A lot of Nelson Kiwi/Tropical fruit intermingling with nice dank, resinous, simcoe and blueberry notes from the Mosaic. Tropical, fruity, oily and dank.

T: Tropical fruit, blueberries, citrus and some nice chewy, oily, sticky dankness.

M: Full bodied. Really nice.

O: Its a great IPA. One of the best

I'm new to the craft brew scene and have been an IPA junky in my short career. I'm an aroma guy first so the first thing I look for is a solid nose. Blazing World NAILED it! Taste is clean yet flavorful. Something I will make sure and keep stocked in my fridge for my daily consumption.

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).

Pours with a very thick, creamy white head that leaves a nice lace around the glass. The head on mine dwindled down just a bit, but It could be my glass. Smells like fall. Tart grapefruit maybe some pepper. Smells like hop heaven. Awesome! Tastes almost like a bitter. Some cinnamon flavors, a bit of citrus in the background. Doesn't taste like it smells, but this is a fabulous tasting beer. Yum. Would like to have this on cask. Thick and creamy in the mouth. A bit sticky. Surprisingly not too heavy. I could see myself drinking these after a hard day of work trying to quench my thirst. This is a delight. So glad I picked this up!

A - Poured a very light body, caramel, slight yellow, reddish hues, but clear, only time it was hazy was due to carbonation. 2 finger head off white head that will flirt with you throughout drinking.

S - Smells just like the can says, very dank, piney, light maltiness, epic citrus notes. This beer has 1 of my favorite hops, the legendary Simcoe. This thing is beautiful to the nose.

T - Depending how you drink this you will get a completely different experience. Quick sips reveal a very complex hop profile, perfectly balanced with the malt, a dry finish and an after taste of bitter with sweetness. Longer sips will reveal the malt character very quickly then smooth out with a wonderful backsplash of fruit, mango, pineapple, grapefruit, pine, dry bitterness.

M - Very light, highly drinkable, it's so crisp and light, it reminds me of a lager.

O - This beer is immediately one of my favorites. This is has something for everyone in this beer. It's light, crisp, drinkable, citrus, bitter, pine, dank, and more. I can't say enough good things about this beer. There's something for everyone. I wish Modern Times fused this with Fortunate Island. Wow, that would be amazing, The Simcoe and the Citra would be an instant hit! PLEASE TELL ME YOU'RE LISTING MODERN TIMES, SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!

Looks like no other beer I've ever had, it looks 'earthy.' Honestly, if I hadn't known the beer style prior to pouring this pint I would have guessed it to be a brown ale.

Very fruity, notes of guava, fig, and dank nug.

Tastes of dark tropical fruit, orange peel, guava, and possibly passion-fruit. I'm honestly getting a red starburst taste on the backend, fucking delicious.

Mouthfeel is thick and sweet with a dank hop bitterness that balances this brew perfectly.

Overall a spectacular red/amber ale. Every time I think I don't like reds/ambers, there is a brew like this to change my attitude.

A: This beer pours a mix of amber, brown and gold, almost resembles a barley wine, leaves a large fluffy white head that leaves good lacing around the glass, the beer just looks like it has kind of a weird funky color to it, but it still looks solid

S: Much more impressed with this category, this beer has a really dank hop character to it, and it is quite impressive, you can pick apart the nelson, simcoe, and mosaic hops used in this beer which gives this beer a unique smell to it, get nice bursts of citrus, some spice, and a hint of pine, and you can also slightly notice the malts as well, very good smell to this beer

T: Again I am very impressed with this category, it is not very complex, but it is very well balanced and the flavors present in the mix are outstanding, at first I get that burst of citrus, then some spice and piney notes followed with a hint of bready and sweet malts, and a nice lingering light bitterness at the end, leaves your mouth feeling a little dry which makes you want more, incredible flavor profile with this beer

M: I really like the mouthfeel to this beer, it's slightly oily, very light, and very crisp, incredibly drinkable!

O: Little unimpressed with the color but everything else is phenomenal in this beer, must try if you can get your hands on it!
