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.

Draft at the brewery. Pours clear amber with a fizzy white head. Tastes like tropical fruit, hop resin, caramel, grapefruit hops, and nutty malt. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like hop resin, caramel, grapefruit, and dry citrus hops.

Tasted from draft. Pours a clear amber with off white head. Aroma is sweet with some fruity notes and caramel. Taste is moderately sweet with a mild bitterness. Lot of tropical fruit flavor with caramel and toffee. A little bit of citrus and floral notes. Overall a very good amber. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Top notch stuff. Being in a can means I can live half way around the world from where it was made and still get the full aroma and flavour. And what an aroma and flavour. Oh boy. Initial hit of aroma was extremely floral - I spose from the mosaic- then orange citrus, a touch of pine(but only a touch), then as it warmed slightly a sweet cured meat - maybe pork loin - but underwritten by a really boss platform of dank. Believe the hype. The only problem I have with this beer is that, if you present me with such good flavours, I want you to take your gloves off and jolly well hammer them mercilessly into my tongue and cheeks, but I feel that this beer takes it a bit to ’nice and politely’ in that regard. But really I’m just being picky.

Draft sample at Hunahpu day 2015. A hopped up Amber ale. Two of my favorite things. Dank, pine, caramel malts. Great stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour is a amber with a average white head. Aroma a nice dank hop with some caramel malt sweetness. Flavor is much of the same. Hops to start then a bit of caramel malt and finishes with a earthy grain. This is a well done amber ale. This is how you elevate a kinda boring style. Just hop the hell out of it.

Great amber with tons of citrus hop and light caramel malts and tasty fruity hops. This is highly drinkable and great.
