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.

Great initial hoppy taste. Then the alcoholic taste kicks in. It is alright.

Nice dank, resiny aroma! Taste follows with some piney hoppiness. Mouthfeel is light medium with prickly carbonation. Not much bitterness. Overall tasty brew.

Poured from a can into a tulip

A. Pours a nice dark amber brown with a 2 finger foamy head.

S. Sweet bready malts and a little banana do the nose.

T. Backing up the nose flavors of sweet malt come out with a tropical hop presence to acomapany the palate. Slight bitterness.

M. Medium bodied with a nice carbonation the liners after the swallow. Finishes clean.

O. A nice amber with some IPA charteristics. Enjoyable beer. Would definitely drink again

Pour is dark copper, clear, white head, large bubbles and lacing. Nose is riddled with sweet malts, toasted grains, candied hops, faint citrus. Flavor is thin, very malty, lots of toasted caramel, bitter grassy hops, faint citrus. Medium body, lighter carb,
