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.

This could possibly be the best amber I have ever had!

Look- nice Carmel amber hue, with a decent head and sticky lacing.

Smell- sweet breads, grapefruit, roasted malt.

Taste- a sweet roasted malt taste with grapefruit hoppiness. Very dank taste.

Feel- medium body with some sticky hoppiness

Overall this is an outstanding beer! Would buy it again. I can picture sitting around a fire sippin on this.

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.
