Appearance

Modern Times Orderville has a clean white label, in the same style as their other releases. The bottle is 22 oz. with the Modern Times logo on the bottle cap. The beer itself pours hazy orange with an average white head.

Aroma

Even before I’ve started to examine the aroma on the beer, I get significant amounts of bright citrus hops during the pour. Examining it once the beer has settled reveals a balanced sweet citrus aroma.

Flavor

The first few sips I’m greeted with a sweet, creamy, citrus. The creaminess imparts a satisfying mouthfeel. The hoppiness sits right in the mid-palate instead of blowing out the front of my tongue. As the beer warms, sweetness starts to build and take on a syrupy character.

Balance

The Orderville has a great balance. The hops don’t overwhelm the profile, and the sweetness and citrus both play well against each other as well.

Finish

The finish is that sweet citrus but also some grapefruit sour citrus to balance it out.

Overall

The Modern Times Orderville is a solid beer in the hazy IPA category. Although it’s not strictly sessionable at 7.2%, the flavor isn’t overwhelmingly hoppy, and delivers a balanced citrus experience.
