4.55/5  rDev +11.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A: Nice light amber, almost copper. Clear with a very nice thick head that lingers around.

S: Very appealing a lot of pine and some dankness to go with a faint fruity mango and grapefruit.

T: Slight pine and dankness upfront with some resemblance of the pale chocolate. Love that this is an amber ale that isn't so caramel sweet. You get the hops in there nicely and balance with the bready backbone.

M: Some bitterness but not even harsh. Really easy to drink and crisp.

O: I think this easily go to the top of my top Amber Ale beers. A lot of hop flavor and aroma and not all that tongue coating caramel.

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 dankness with dank head and dank retention. :0

S: Dank, resinous hops and citrus. Oily and dank.

T: Oily, citrusy, heavy. Some woukd say its dank

M: Full bodied. Really nice.

O: Its a great IPA.

Grabbed a can to see how "hoppy" and "dank" it really was...

Poured a nice golden color with a little sticky head. The head quickly receded back into the beer.

Blazing World has a good smell to it. Not too overpowering but definitely gives its presence.

Taste and mouthfeel are solid. You taste hops mixed with a slight malt finish. I'm not a big malty guy yet it's not overpowering. Herbal hop flavors finish it off, leaving a nice little lingering taste of caramel and citrus.

Simply put, I dig it. I'll definitely grab this out of the fridge mid week to not overpower my palate with heavier IPA and IIPA's I usually look to drink.

If you're looking for a solid beer to grill to, sit around the pool, or watch a ball game, this will satisfy without putting you on your caboose.

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).
