3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big can in a tulip. Pours hazy golden/amber with a white head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops, light malts, wheat, and some dough. Flavor the same with some cool hops. Average texture. A really cool beer.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This pours a hazy light orange with lemon yellow hues. Softly pastel with a thin head of loose foam that fell too fast to a very thin ring and left no lace. Nose bounds out of the glass with pine! Then mango and stone fruits. A crisp dry wheat scent with a touch of sweetness and hinting at bread. Lightly floral but to really intrigue this beer has a touch of hearty green herbal on it. Taste is light and bountiful with fruit. Mango, apricot, some tangerine. Brilliantly light on the palate. The malt is a crisp wheat cracker thatís not too sweet. The herbal is the stuff that could have made onion but it stayed just shy and is delightful because it did not reach an oniony flavor. Faint little bit of pepper in the finish and as this warms a honey like scent. There is a hop bitter but itís gentle and starts in the mid palate. The pine is earthy and prominent. There is a touch of sour undertaste to the malt. By the time it gets to the short finish itís practically gone and this drinks like a dream. Refreshing and so easily you could have a dozen of these in a day and not get bored.

This golden beer has an amazing fruity aroma. It reminds me a mango. It has a pleasing hop flavor.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
16 oz. can. It pours a gold color with a large foamy white head. The aroma is massively hoppy with lots of mango, papaya, pineapple and some minor onion, garlic and touches of caramel that give it some richness. The flavor is kind of the same with sweet tropical fruit and noticeable caramel. Strong onion hop bitterness in the finish. Pretty tasty, but I would prefer it a little drier.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. No date. Big tropical nose filled with pure hop fruit; peach pur√©e, guava, orange pur√©e and mango. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, with average carbonation. Flavors of mango, peach, guava and orange, again fill the palate. A great example of seriously dry-hopped beer; a ton of aroma and flavor, with mild bitterness, while also still retaining the wheat base in the background. This will be popular. Very easy to drink, with plenty of nuance and low ABV. Good stuff. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2014 The perfect Summer hop beer and the epitome of the session IPA. Super skunky tropical fruit and dank citrus and pine hops. Good body and dry finish. Well made and eminently poundable.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2014 Re rate: after the second time tasting; even more tropical sweet hop action going on. This beer is simply mesmerizing when it comes to aroma and taste in a 4.8 % beer! Amazing!
Intense, dank citrus aroma with a sweet, hoppy cracker taste. Drinks like super crafted IPA. Modern Times is straight killing it!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear orange color, moderate head, decent lace/retention. Aroma is grapefruit, mango, citrus, light clove and caramel. In a blind taste test I would identify this as an IPA. A really good IPA. Big friggin aroma for a 4.8% beer, loads of hops but very light wheat notes. Medium to light bodied, oozing with citrus and sweet mango. I could see some style purists hating on this.

Can. I really didnít want to homer this stuff up but, crap, here it goes! Can from Total Wine just to try this stuff. Wheat beer scared me away until now. Pours a clear yellow/orange with nice white head. Aroma is outstanding citrus and hop melding with a nice bit of zest. Taste is pure mango juice with some kiwi, orange and lemon added in for good measure. The dankness from the aroma comes in at the end when Iím drinking it to really do nice things with this beer. Wow. I donít even remember what the cans cost now but this is going to be a go to for sure if they can keep it fresh and in stock.
