Brewed by:

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.

Got a 2 week old can and god damn, those hops. This is like a West Coast red ale. Damn dry with huge crisp pine, white grape, and grapefruit in the nose. It smells like I'm rubbing hops in my hands. The IBUs (85) are up there, but it's a smooth bitterness and I'll be going back for another can.

Poured a mostly clear amber color with two fingers worth of off white bubbly head. the smell is all hops with pine being at the forefront. You get a bit of the malt sweetness at the end. The flavor follows suit as you get a ton of hops upfront before the amber ale comes through with a bit of toasty malt. The feel is medium with good carbonation. This is an excellent beer. The hops don't overpower the amber ale but plays nice just adding some complexity.

16oz can from Noble Grains NYC on the UES
Pours a clear amber with white head, smells like spicy, pepper candied citrus and pine, with a hint of caramel sweetness, taste is sweet bready malts up front followed by citrus and pine spiciness, finishes with a lingering citrus zest, this beer is thick and creamy, and finishes dry. An excellent hop cant amber, reminiscent of another one of my favorites, Nugget Nectar.

Had on tap at Slater's 50/50. Dark copper in color with a very thin white head. Smell is heavy caramel malt with a mango finish. Very floral. Taste follows the smell. Malty, mango, with a hoppy touch. Crisp, clean mouth feel. Medium body. Leaves you feeling refreshed.

A very bright clear burnt orange, amber color. Aroma of sticky pine sap, grapefruit, passionfruit, citrus pith. Taste is nice blend of light caramel malt, pine, floral hop, light grapefruit and spice in the finish. Moderately bitter, medium body, with a semi-dry finish. Malty and hoppy in flavor, relatively non-sweet and crisp drinking.
