BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Modern Times Beer
California, United States
moderntimesbeer.com

Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.80%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

16oz Tulip.
L: Pours light brown.. little lacing or head.
S: Toasted pine, malty and lightly danked.
T: Bready, earthy and dank flavored.
F: Thin, pretty dry.. without a bitter bite. Low carbonation.
O: This is my 2nd beer, and quite honestly, I did not like it cold. As it warmed, so did my enthusiasm. I think the best part of this beer was the MF. It was almost rye feeling, but very tasty.

Yellow amber with white head.

Smell is mostly piney hops with some citrus.

It initially seems like a well balanced amber ale with a smooth malt character, but as I continue to drink the hops continue to build up and seem more intense. The aftertaste is fairly citrusy.

This isn't bad, but I probably wouldn't get it again. A little too hoppy of an amber for me.

L: pours amber-brown with a minimal layer of very light tan head. Slightly clear.
S: strong and pungent resinous and dank hops. Perhaps hints of citrus find their way through the hoppiness
T: Dank and resinous hops balanced incredibly well with a strong malty backbone. I'm not generally a fan of really dank IPAs, but the malt backbone on this beer really balances things out. It has the dank hop flavor, but with much less of the bitterness.
F: Medium-full body. Slightly crisp. Very dry for a beer.

Appearance – One finger head on a clear amber body.

Aroma – Very strong citrus, mostly grapefruit and oranges.

Taste – Strongly bitter at first, then resinous and pine flavors came in with a slightly sweet finish.

Mouthfeel – A bit astringent but balanced the hop potency well.

Overall – Pretty good, more bitter than expected but well layered and complex.

I tried this beer at the Beer Hunter in La Quinta, CA. It poured a clear Amber with white head that did not leave any lace. The scent had touches of floral hop. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with good hop presence. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a solid easy drinking sessionable beer.

16oz can pour into American pint glass, half inch worth of white cream color head turns into about a centimeter, lighter lacing, Dark murky gold/brown body, not really reddish though like other ambers

Aroma is light weedy pine, maybe hint of grapefruit but not much going on there

Taste is slightly bitter at first but intensifies shortly after, followed by a dank bready malt, light citrus with what seems to be a little spice, I like it

Low but prickly carbonation, Mouthfeel is juicy at first but quickly dries out, very long finish

Overall this is the second brew I’ve had from this company and I’m impressed, especially being one of the cheaper selections they still come through with the flavor, would definitely seek out more offerings from them
