This is what the “Beer Advocate” has to say about
Blazing World’s Modern Times Beer
“This beer is the stickiest of the sticky. 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.”
One of their readers describes it as “A tall and very frothy ivory head slowly fades atop an amber colored ale. Aroma is fruity, caramelly, bready, and earthy. Balanced flavors: juicy fruit, bready crust, citrus, earthy pine, mango. Full body, moderate carbonation & bitterness, very dry finish. Really good beer here. Glad to try it while on vacation in California!”
Straight from Modern Times Home Page: “Our core line-up focuses (non-monogamously) on aroma-driven, complex, flavorful, sessionish beers. We often brew hybrid styles, combining the features we like from established categories to create new, Island-Of-Doctor-Moreau-style mash-ups.
We have an outrageously tasty stable of year-round offerings, monthly special releases, and rotating seasonal beers, as well as tons of special release and one-off batches, from hazy IPAs, to barrel-aged sours, to decadent imperial stouts.
Recent additions to our growing portfolio of beverage-magic include an entire warehouse–appropriately dubbed the Fortress of Raditude–dedicated to barrel-aging & special project beers, as well as fully operational brewing battle-stations in DTLA and Portland.
Our tasting rooms are where we test different concepts, from variations on our core beers to experimental pilot batches. You should totally come hang out sometime.”
Modern Times has three locations in San Diego County: Point Loma, North Park and Encinitas. The tasting room is located in Point Loma at 3725 Greenwood St. in San Diego. Phone: 619.546.9694
