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.

Best Amber I've had, right up there with Nugget Nectar. Enjoyed it fresh from the can after a long hike at Zion. Picked the can up in Vegas the night before and wish I would've picked up a sixer instead of a single.

Can poured into a Modern Times Beer glass

A: Pours deep copper amber with a frothy khaki head that settles to a light layer that hangs around and leaves some nice lacing.

S: Monster wave of all different kinds of hops. Starts dank, some white wine grape, spicy pine, citrus, underlying tropical fruit, toasty bready malt, and toffee sweetness.

T: You can definitely taste all the different elements of the hop combo coming out to play. White wine grape, dank pine, citrus, grapefruit, lemon, tangerine zest, tropical fruit, papaya, passion fruit, and mango, all backed with toasty, even a bit roasty (faint chocolate on the back end), bready malt, and toffee sweetness.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: To be honest, it's a red IPA, not a "hoppy amber", but who cares. I had a taste of this one some time ago and wasn't impressed. Now, with a can to myself I can properly appreciate it. Really nice beer.

16 oz can, canned 5/18/17

Medium amber color, clear. White head, good head retention. Nice dank pine and earthy hop aroma, with caramel. Works well. Similar taste. Moderately bitter, good balance. Slightly sticky mouthfeel, medium bodied.

Can to tulip glass.

LOOK: dark gold, almost brown, but mostly clear with just a touch of laziness. Medium white head that fades slowly.

AROMA: fruit, metallic, the mosaic is prominent.

TASTE: while the aroma is very IPA like, the taste almost drinks like a lager. A lot of Wheat and bread mixed in with tropical fruit. Also the metallic taste of mosaic carries over. Very tasty.

FEEL: well carbonated with a dry finish. Light to medium Bodied. Above-average carbonation. Dryness is a touch off-putting, but does keep you coming back for more.

Maybe a tad below fortunate Islands, but still very tasty.

Pours a slightly amber gold with a white head. Smells of hops, citrus, caramel, and malts. Taste follow the nose almost exactly with some alcohol. Medium in body and carbonation. Overall it's a great beer, but it doesn't taste, smell, or look like any amber I've ever had.

Pours a color that is more copper and honey than red. The nose has a decent dose of dank hops. The hop bitterness is the feature note of this very drinkable offering. There is a nice dankness in the flavor profile but there is a piney essence, as well.

Poured a slightly cloudy amber body with good head and the aroma has a nice chunk of caramel malt and then a minor hoppiness with citric notes. Thicker, heavier than most amber ales, this is more of a slow malt heavy bready/caramel beer (not quite sweet) with balance from light, citric earthy hops and is pretty enjoyable.

Sixteen ounce can copped from Pub 365 in Las Vegas. Pours a copper ruddy hue with minimal frothing. Mellow aroma replete with hints of caramel and citrus. Similar overall flavor profile.
