3.75/5  rDev -8.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A pleasant looking pour, moderately hazy, deep gold, really nice layer of foam that persists throughout the glass. Smell is similarly pleasant, balancing floral-sweet citrus, almost orange blossomy, alongside a lightly herbal undercurrent. It's not huge, but it's well put together. On the palate, things fall apart a bit, exacerbated by a somewhat watery body. Maybe I was extra sensitive to it, with the label's promise of something "pillowy", but the toned down flavor, in concert with the watery body, proved an underwhelming combo. The fruit flavors gave way to a more green/grassy flavor, light and one-dimensional. Overall, kind of a letdown.

Pours a warm orange gold with nice puffy head that slowly settled with high lacing

Smells of dank citrus, a little floral

Taste is bitter, a bit grassy, peppery spiciness, and citrus zest

This beer is the best I have had thus far from MT. San Diego seems to keep producing phenomenal beers, and this is another example. Pale, straw colored orange, with a creamy head with superb retention and sheet lacing. Dank, ripe fruit and citrus in the aroma, as well as butterscotch. The flavor is juicy and bright- tangerine, mango, passion fruit and caramel malt. Hints of grass and herbs, grapefruit and melon. A very well balanced beer, so drinkable and full of flavor. Excellent.

Pours a nice hazy golden, thick billowing white head that leaves massive lacing. Aroma is a HUGE blast of dank New Zealand hops...definitely pungent and enjoyable. Reminds me of O.G. Stone Enjoy By aroma. Taste is smooth, nice bitterness up front with a light amount on the back. Smooth throughout. Ah Modern Times, how you are awe inspiring. Wish there were 6 packs of this.
