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!
