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

Schlumpfhunter (119) - 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!

AssKicker (155) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - FEB 19, 2016
Bière blonde ayant une bonne carbonatation, mais à la mousse qui s’estompe rapidement. Nez porté sur le houblon avec des notes de fruit de la passion particulièrement agréable. Une très bonne IPA bien rafraîchissante.
