Modern Times Beer to Release Four Hoppy Seasonal Cans in 2015


Modern Times Releasing 4 Hoppy Seasonal Cans!

A few months back I was out in San Diego for a conference and managed to find a few hours to swing by and visit the Modern Times brewery. To say the taproom kicked ass would be an understatement. The place is awesome and the people there are awesome too. I can't say enough great things about Phil (who provided an awesome tour) and Nate (a.k.a. @toronadoislander) for all the great pours. If you EVER get a chance to visit Modern Times do not pass it up! My only complaint is that I could only take a few cans back with me! Well, the good news for anyone that lives in SoCal, or has friends/family/trading buddies there, Modern Times will be releasing four new cans - all of them hoppy - in the coming year. Hells yes. 

Here is the run down...

Oneida - March through May - Oneida is Hallertau Blanc-centric. The bright tropical fruit and lemongrass notes give it an uber-pungent aroma, with the grapefruity citrus of Cascade providing a touch of balance. We've also added experimental hop variety 05256 to the mix, adding a nice hop complexity while keeping it a drinkable pale ale. While more aggressively bitter than Fortunate Islands, Oneida still has a light body and moderate ABV. We're considering making Oneida our spring seasonal, but that's all kind of up in the air.

Booming Rollers - June through August - Booming Rollers is a 6.8% ABV, 75 IBU IPA brewed and dry-hopped with Citra, Motueka, and Centennial. Although it finished bone dry (1.5P), the juiciness of the hops is the main story here. Citra is definitely the dominant flavor and aroma contributor, but Motueka makes its presence felt with some darker fruit notes and that strong tropical juiciness. The malt offers enough backbone to balance the bitterness and provide a light, crackery underpinning. The finish is characterized by a briefly lingering bitterness and loads more tropical fruit.

Aurora - September through November - Aurora is a 6.8% ABV red rye IPA loaded with Equinox, Centennial, Motueka, and Experimental Hop 07270. This pungent, complex IPA marries the spicy malt character of rye with the fruity dankness of new wave American & New Zealand hops. Aurora pours a gorgeous ruby red, making it the perfect IPA for Fall (if it ever comes to San Diego).

City of the Sun - December through February - City of the Sun is a big, fruity, pungent, sticky, delicious IPA. Mosaic & Motueka give it a very fruity hop character, with Simcoe providing enough of a piney backbone to prevent it from going off the deep end. The complex but unobtrusive malt character gives it a medium body and a platform for the saturated hop flavor.

For more you can read all about this over at the Modern Times website...below is a summary:

Seasonal cans are coming! My goal has always been for a rotating cadre of seasonals to occupy a 5th can slot for us, and now that plan is coming to fruition. Along with an ambitious 22oz release program and a slew of barrel-aged releases (both of which I will write about soon), in 2015 we will put all of the pieces of my original beer plan for Modern Times into place. That's super exciting.

So, the seasonals. All of these are beers we've brewed before, and Oneida & Aurora both hit 22oz bottles this year. With these four beers, the seasonal program essentially becomes our rotating IPA slot, making our line-up hoppier & more aggressive than it currently stands. All of these beers go heavy on new wave hops from the fruit-forward end of the spectrum, and that's the point. We want to profile some of the fascinating new stars of the hop world, and these beers do it, big time. 

Oneida is loaded with Hallertau Blanc, Aurora brings the Equinox, Booming Rollers is all about Citra, and City of the Sun leans on Motueka/Mosaic. These hops are the result of hop breeders and growers taking bold steps into previously uncharted territory, and the results are spectacular. All of these beers will be super fragrant, completely saturated with hop flavor, and distinctively original. 

Like our year round cans, the seasonals will all be in four packs of 16oz cans. They'll be widely available throughout our current distribution area, and they'll be available on draft as well. Should be a rad year!
