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. Pours out a lightly cloudy orange color with a very small white head. Aroma is of cracker and biscuit malts, light herbal bitterness, not much on the nose. Taste improves, biscuity malts, light sweetness, mild grass, citrus, grainy notes. It’s solid but lacks complexity.

sloth (2793) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUN 6, 2014
Thin, off white head thats short lived, spotty lace. Murky, blond colored body. Nose is a hint resiny with juicy citrus notes. Body is med/full with a soft carbonation, lil oily, lil resiny and grainy. Citrus greets you with a dry maltiness backing it up. Tame grapefruit notes, light pine and floral notes, grainy malts, dry. Tame finish with a lil warmth and an equally tame bite. Better than exxpected though. Bottle from statelineliquors.

Tasted @ home (Norway). Bottle. Import. Nice amber to gold color. OK head retention at first, reduced to a thin lace after a while. Aroma of citrus, malt, caramel and a hint of metal. Flavor of malt, caramel, alcohol, grass, with decent bitterness. Feels a bit dry on the palate.

Very nice beer and complex beer. The high alcohol never shows itself and this is actually an easy drinker. Aromas of pine, sap, citrus and a little malty caramel sweetness. Flavors consisting of the same along with a good amount of bitterness. Medium bodied. I could drink this all day.
