Modern Times started brewing in May of 2013 and hasn’t looked back since. Boasting an impressive lineup of both seasonal and year-round brews, Modern Times strives to create “aroma-driven, complex, flavorful, sessionish beers”. No matter what type of beer you enjoy, Modern Times has something that will fit your style. Also if beer really isn’t your thing they also brew coffee! Head over to their Point Loma tasting room and try their seasonal brews before they are gone!!
The Accumulated Knowledge is a special brew that ‘encapsulates the sum of Modern Times IPA-brewing wisdom’!
Appearance: Pours a misty golden orange color that is opaque, almost looks like a glass of orange juice! Small head that leaves a little bit of lacing
Aroma: Great bold hoppy aroma, Citra hops very present. Pleasant smells of tropical fruit.
Taste: Hops are very up front and present at first taste. Great fruity and citrusy flavors that come on strong and slowly fade. Just a touch of bitterness, nothing crazy just enough to balance the flavors. Ends very smooth with almost no aftertaste, which is surprising due to a large amount of flavor on the front end.
Mouthfeel: Medium to moderate amount of carbonation. Suits brew well and adds to the flavor. Kick of flavor on the palate at first, and then fades leading to almost no residual bitterness. Smooth and refreshing.
Overall: The Accumulated Knowledge is an interesting brew. Great hoppy and tropical flavors that showcase some of the best aspects that IPA’s have to offer while still smooth and relatively tame in terms of bitterness and crazy hoppy flavor. Modern Times has defiantly used all of their brewing experience to create an IPA that stands out from the crowd. Great IPA that appeals to a lot of different types of beer drinkers. Amazingly colorful beer and really refreshing. Great beer for summertime and sharing with friends, cheers!!
