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

Foffern (1685) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2014
Bottle at Piccadilly, Bodø. Has a clear amber colour with a small, off-white head. Fruity aroma of peaches, berries, tropical fruit and sweet malt. Fruity is also the flavour with tones of grapefruit, apricot, pine and leather. Has a slick mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. A fruity, well-balanced and nice DIPA.

Draught sample @ Akkurat, 22/5-14. Orange amber, slight haze. Grapefruit, oranges and litchi plus a toasty caramel maltiness with some pine on the nose. Flavour is medium sweet and finishes dry with toasty/bready caramel and resiny grapefruit hops. Nice, even though not fantastic.
