Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: mactrail on 06-30-2013

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.

This beer has a very unassuming can design. I wasn't familiar with the brand and didn't expect too much (yes, I judged the book by its cover.) Took a sip and thought... hey, that's a lot better than I expected - didn't think I should rate it so high because anything is great coming from very low expectation. After a few sips, I put the beer down and THEN it hits me. The citrusy hop flavor lingers... for a long time. It just begs for another sip then another and made me really sad when the can is gone.

LOOK: Pours a dark bronze with a hint of amber. Soapy head leaves sheets of lace behind on the pint. Gotta love a beer that comes in a 16.9 pounder can and the quality is this high.

SMELL: Very nice aroma, and dank is a perfect word. Pungent West Coast American hops in your face. Resin, hemp seed, guava, mandarin.

TASTE: The taste is nice and bitter upfront with the perfect combination of herb, pine and tropical fruit, Mango, papaya, passionfruit, and clementine orange all come to mind in the flavor. Sugary malt character lays a perfect foundation to carry the hop notes along. Great balance, fresh tasting, and just a touch darker than a typical IPA. This is very freaking tasty.

FEEL: Full bodied, yet smooth and soft on the palate. Good amount of carbonation, this beer drinks effortlessly. Very clean finish leaving the drinker yearning for another sip of this hoppy sweet amber ale.

OVERALL: A great example of West Coast hop flavors, Modern Times Beer has created a very successful recipe here. Gaining some momentum from hop heads and beer collectors, this is a perfect canned hoppy amber ale. Delightful.

16 oz can poured into nonic pint

A: Almost a creamy looking tight head Hazy Amber looks like good carbonation to it

S: Very hoppy stone fruits lots of Carmel toffee

T: This is sank it's lusciously hoppy with nice citrus undertones and then just a wave of smooth Carmel malts but none of the sweetness you would expect from an Amber ale very bready but so hoppy

M: medium nothing to much in the mouthfeel it's pretty smooth but with a little bite

O: This beer is flat out fantastic it combines juicy hop flavors with deep Carmel bready malts it just hits everything perfectly it may be a tad unbalanced towards the hoppy side but it is delightful.
