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

Tognetta (443) - Campinas, BRAZIL - AUG 25, 2015
Alaranjado escuro, espuma branca de média formação e persistência. Aroma caramelado, levemente amadeirado, açúcar queimado, fermento. Paladar segue em sua maioria o aroma, mas trás amargor leve do lúpulo, também um resinal queimado inesperado. Corpo médio e baixa carbonatação. Aftertaste resinal leve, amargor adocicado. Um pouco abaixo do esperado.

Too much alcohol! Hop profile was strongly pine and herbal, rather than fruity. Too many hop varieties might just muddy the flavor profile!
