We brew our beer in New York, about halfway between the hop fields of the Pacific Northwest and the hop fields of Kent, England. So we use earthy English hops to build the foundation and bright citrusy American hops to bring the noise in the rambunctious IPA we call BLAST! British Maris Otter and German Pilsner malts lends solidity, balance and bready flavors to brace up a beer that’s beautifully hoppy, strangely quaffable and oddly compelling. Minerally hop bitterness is followed by a shock wave of flavor and aroma. You won’t even know what hit you.

Malts: Scottish Floor-malted Maris Otter, German Pilsner Malt

Hops: Willamette, Magnum, Cascade, Fuggle, Aurora, Zythos, Bravo, Simcoe, Sorachi Ace, Amarillo, Experiment 6300

dogbomb (1116) - ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2015
Bottle. Pours gold with a quite quickly thinning white head. Nose is strong! You can smell thing thing from a mile away! Mango, pineapple, malts, tangerine. Very full flavour in the mouth. Initial biscuits and toffee, mango and tropical fruits. A warmth across the tongue, a little whisky. Warmth AND flavour filling the mouth. Delicious!

Alengrin (3670) - BELGIUM - NOV 16, 2015
Brooklyn’s IIPA with stable, moussy, off-white, thinnish head and light peachy blonde colour, hazy. Aroma of orange peel, grapefruit, biscuit, green apple, lemon zest, flowers, dry white wine, kiwi, lemongrass. Crisp, restrainedly fruity onset, hints of mango, lychee and kiwi, supple body with soft carbo, smooth lightly caramelly malt base, bit bready, very pleasant and well in balance with the hoppiness in the finish, which provides a ton of citrusy and floral aromas retronasally; bittering power, however, remains fairly limited for the style. Not too abrasive even for a double IPA, more on the elegant, balanced side of the style.

mjs (5614) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 30, 2015
(Keg at OlutExpo 2015) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness and sweetness. Palate was meidum bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, malts, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, hoppy and bitter. A balanced and easily drinkable hoppy pale ale. And Sorachi Ace was well hidden, good.

Tap (OlutExpo2015, Helsinki)
Some shampoo soapiness - head and shoulders. Getting some US-05 fingerprint in there too. Bright gold, clear, small tight head. Smells a bit alcoholic, but there’s none in the taste. Super freshi hops in the taste, simple caramelly and bready malts too. Finish has dry bitter husky grains, bitter hops and alas some soapiness in the finish.

Lecker, hatte davor ein Mikeller Green, Zeichen den beiden liegen Welten! Toller Geruch, schön fruchtig, relativ alkoholisch. Tolle Krone und goldgelbe Farbe, ganz leicht trüb, keine Schwebstoffe! Geschmacklich ein klassisches IPA, tropisch, Zitrus. Toller Weizen, Pilsener tut jedem Bier gut. Schöne Auswahl der einzelnen Zutaten. Nichts was man nicht schon probiert hätte, aber extrem gut hergestellt und tolles Bier für die Abendstunden. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
