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

I really enjoyed this beer. It should be sold in a 6 pack instead of a 4. Moderate hopping for a double.

Seems like kind of an odd duck - like there was something more going on here, but the show’s over. Aroma is oxidized hop, woodsy, caramel. Flavor’s like nose, overly sweet. Overall ok.

chinchill (3344) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 5, 2015
On tap. Deep Amber body with an OK head but persistent visible carbonation. Bready and hoppy aroma. The flavor has a subdued citrus hop blast. Unusually sweet for style, although the bitterness is more pronounced.in the finish. Lightly syrupy, medium+ body. Medium-low carbonation. O: very flavorful but surprisingly sweet for style.

Tognetta (492) - 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.

P: medium bodied, medium carbonation, sweetness from the citrus upfront, bitterness in the back but it is balanced, sticky Overall - solid DIPA, Worth a try!!!
