COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blazing World is an aggressively hoppy beer that shares characteristics with both double IPAs and amber ales. It’s 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.

Dogbrick (8813) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Sample at the Aces & Ales Winter Beer Fest on 01/17/2015. The beer is a clear copper-golden color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Tropical fruit, herbal hops and malt in the nose. Medium-bodied with flavors of citrusy hops, passion fruit and biscuit malt. The finish is fruity with a citrus and hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

beerbill (3564) - Laurel, New York, USA - JAN 6, 2015
16 oz. can courtesy of a trade with paiste2002. Pours a lightly hazed golden amber with a moderate off-white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left light lace. Very pleasant aroma that is dominated by sweet fruity orange, pineapple, and grapefruit. The flavor begins with a solid malt base with some light sweetness, and follows with fruity orange, pineapple and grapefruit. Mild-moderate bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied. Very good!

beer-yum (655) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 1, 2015
Allurung aroma of citrus and pine leads to a surprisingly laid back (but perfectly balanced) taste. Probably better than my inital rating - will update after I have sampled it again.

From tap at Mikkeller Bangkok. Recommended by bar staff. Citrus and passion fruit on the nose. Very hoppy. Almost like a DIPA. Well balanced. A great beer altogether.
