COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Bottle from whole foods nyc. Orange and muted passionfruit is what I got. A little pepper and slightly sugary. The difference with this is the otter Maris malt which gives this mor of a Pilsner backbone. Not bad.

Pour is a orange juice lookalike with a small white head. Aroma is full of mango, peach and pineapple. So fruity and fresh. Flavor is again a super fresh tropical fruit but then you also get thee maris otter malt which gives the beer a bready and earthy richness. All those hop varieties really make this beer. So fruity, a bit minty and not bitter at all. This was a awesome beer and those fruity hops are outstanding.

dambor (371) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 18, 2016
Pours golden with medium head. Aroma: ripe white fruit, such as mango, grapes. Some citrus, orange in the background. Taste: a lot of lemon and orange at first, followed by peach, some grapes. Palate is nicely hoppy, medium lasting time of the bitterness. Overall very goid DIPA. No sign of the 8,4% ABV at all. I must admit I drank this pretty old - 1 month before the BBD.

ALIBALI (521) - Kiel, GERMANY - MAR 12, 2016
Diverse Male geschlürft. Zuerst 2014 in der Brooklyn Brewery vom Hahn. Die 11 Hopfen Variante. Trägt seiner Namen völlig zu Recht. Eine wahre Granate, für ein IIPA nicht sehr bitter, aber dafür sehr vielschichtig und abenteuerlich. Schmeckt aus der Flasche noch ein wenig runder. YEAH!!!!!

Schlumpfhunter (129) - Bavaria, GERMANY - MAR 7, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2016 Farbe: rötliches gold Schaum: gut immer was da Nase: ipa- fruchtig hopfig: Zitrone orange, Grapefruit, Pfirsich aber auch was erdig holzigesGeschmack: überraschend vollmundig, nix mit leichtes ipa. Feine mittlere Kohlensäure, hopfig bitter, aber auch süß. Das malzig süße kommt auch richtig im Abgang bevor sich wieder das Bittere des Hopfen für den Nachgeschmack durchsetzt. Dazwischen der volle frucht geschmacklich aus der nase mit mehr Betonung auf dem erdigen, orange und Gerste. Wow echt coole Mischung!

Bue en bouteille de 355ml. Blonde orangée, fine mousse blanche. Nez houblonné, pêche, légèrement boisé. Palais corpulent, alcool présent, effervescence moyenne, belle complexité. Amertume finale longue, pointe d’acidité boisée. Cool.
