Summer has officially come to a close, but doesn’t mean IPA season is necessarily over. Modern Times Brewing has released their new Hazy Nelson IPA called “Space Ways”, a perfect, soothing beer for the Fall transition.
Modern Times has released quite a few different IPA’s this past summer: everything from the dank mosaic, to juicy, tropical flavors, and a new haze with Nelson hops. The Orderville, Critical Band, and Space Ways are definitely one of my favorite pale ales from this brewery that really emulates these characteristics.
According to Modern Times, Space Ways features a blend of Nelson, Motueka, and Simcoe hops, and was fermented in London III yeast. It has a superb profile full with mango, nectarine, and brilliant lime-zest character.
Space Ways features a variety of malts; the two row, white wheat, flaked oats, and dextrapils mix that gives this beer that signature, cloudy appearance. An awesome fusion of hops and malts, combined with great flavor, this new creation is a must-try.
This incredible taste trip will leave you feeling hazy, after having sip after sip with a 6.7% ABV.
I have discovered these are the kind of Indian pale ales that really are my favorite. Hazy IPA’s all day!
Whether you like that kind of smooth taste the Space Ways brings, or it’s combination of a hoppy palate, this is truly a great ale for this season.
