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.

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

Pours an effervescent amber with 3+ fingers of rocky eggshell colored head. Sheets of lacing & great head retention

S: Orange peel, pine

T: Follows the nose, a little dry breadyness, & lovely toastyness up front. Toastyness & pine as this warms more dryness too.

MF: Medium body, fairly firm carbonation, pretty nice balance

Easy to drink. My first Modern Times beer, a very nice amber ale

Pours slightly misty amber with a thick off-white head.

Aroma is very bright tropical and citrus fruits, similar to the juicy IPAs out there. Very inviting.

Taste is a very nice balance of piney and earthy hops, smooth malt, and sweet fruit juiciness. Just outstanding.

Feel is creamy and smooth. Bitterness is just solid enough. Clean dry finish.

Overall drinks like a smooth, full-flavored IPA. One of the tastiest ambers I've tried. Another Modern Times gem.

Beautiful light amber colored beer with a popcorn colored head of 2 fingers. I can smell citrus from here.

Bright tropical fruits abound - papaya, mango, mangosteen, palmyra, tangerine, orange, and grapefruit.

Flavor starts off with a touch of bright wood, and then follows into tons of bright fruits. Cantaloupe, grapefruit, tangerine, papaya, and nectarine.

Feel is resiny, with a very mild and quiet carbonation, and a resiny, slightly alcoholic finish.

Overall, a killer amber IPA. Glad I have a bunch more to enjoy!
