Been looking forward to finally trying some modern times after hearing good things about them. This one has really turned me off though. Pours way too light. Smell is old hops and to be honest, a litte bit like fart. Taste is pretty much like aroma with stale cardboard. Hopefully I just had a bad can cause this is horrid.

16oz can purchased from Whole Foods Hillcrest for $9.99 a four pack. Amber color, good appearance, good head. Aroma was malts, touch of fruity hops and then something I wasn't sure of until I tasted it. Flavor was buttery like diacetyl, malts, notch hoppiness because I was so distracted by the butter. I'dije to try this again but I'm super sensitive to diacetyl and I hate it.

Appearance: Great sticky lacing. He'd retention is ok. Head is rocky and chunky. A misty reddish copper.

Nose: Pine, metallic and slight carmel.

Taste: Crisp carbonation throughout. Corn, resin, metallic.

Notes: I was not overly impressed. My wife just said "It tastes like it's trying to be two different beers at once. I wish I were just drinking one of them."
