Blazing World is an aggressively hoppy beer that shares characteristics with both double IPAs and amber ales. Itís hopped with an excessive quantity of Nelson Sauvin, Mosaic, and Simcoe hops, giving it an intensely fruity, dank hop aroma, followed by a huge & complex hop flavor and a healthy dose of bitterness. Its amber body is deceptively dry, offering just enough malt backbone to support its distinctive and incredibly robust hop character.

Pours a dark amber, almost like cola, with a fluffy head. Nose is floral hops, dank, fruity, musty. Taste is quite dank, caramel malt backbone is quite present, a bit biscuity, moderate hop flavor but they're not sharp like an ipa would be, citrus fruits, pine, a bit dry at the end. Body is sticky/chewy. Overall a good amber, very dank and malty, ok balance but a bit malty for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Pours amber and a bit cloudy. Aroma is grapefruit, peach, mango, and dank. Taste was nicely balanced with the fruits and came together perfectly. Nice amount of bitterness in it with a smooth yet dry finish. Iím very impressed with the couple Modern Times Iíve tried so far.

Modern times Blazing world American amber ale 6.8% ABV 85 IBU APPEARANCE: Poured a hazy, ugly, penny copper orange with a lazy sticky two finger off white head. Stuck around for a nice while before finally settling into a small halo. AROMA: If dank was a fruit, then this would be fresh squeezed dank! Great tropical fruit overload, pineapple, mango, and citrus. The simcoe hops really hit the nose before making way for the malty goodness that crashes over. TASTE: The aroma makes you think you are drinking an ipa, but the first sip is malt forward and reminds you that this is still an amber ale. Flavor is intense and in your face. Great fruitiness and floral notes that are interviewed with a small amount of pine. Finishes out with a nice sweet biscuity, honey backbone. MOUTHFEEL: Medium body and Medium carbonation. Slightly more sticky and chewy then I would expect from 6.8% ABV. Nice semi dry snappy finish that quenches me thirst but also leave me longing for a other sip at the same time. OVERALL: I'll go right out and say this is my favorite amber to date. So well balanced, but the hoppiness that isn't usually found in an amber is nice and present. Makes it drink like an American amber ipa combo and I love it! Great job Modern Times, I now put this above the fortunate islands on my top Modern Times beer list! RATING: 4.5/5 Zombie Heads! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Amber colored pour, with a white head. Very resinous hops, pine, citrus, grapefruit, caramel, moderate sweetness, and somewhat dank. Pretty good, not really an amber, more like an IPA.

Wittales (611) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Appearance was cloudy amber with lasting creamy off white 2 finger head, rings of lacing. Aromas are sweet Munich, pale malts with tropical, citrus fruits and hints of pine. Taste are sweet soft malt upfront then the pineapple, grapefruit, pine and lemon hops. Palate are smooth creamy CO2 with medium body, then lasting sweet balanced hoppy finish. A strange brew, me Likey.

Iím new to the craft brew game. Tried a few IPAs and a few DIPAs before I came across this one. Awesome aroma without the overly bitter finish you find with most IPAs. Highly recommend!
