4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Brooklyn Blast has a thin-to-medium, off-white head, a rather hazy, somewhat bubbly, orange-gold appearance, and a few scattered lacing rings left on the glass. The aroma is of bursting, fruity, and bold sweet malt and hop oils, and the flavor is the same, with a pleasant and not harsh, but present and strong bitterness to balance the sweetness. No alcohol notes with this one. Brooklyn Blast! has a medium-to-heavy and slick mouthfeel, and it finishes on the puckering side and more drinkable than one would expect for the style. RJT

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aromas of fruit, florals, and biscuit emanate from a slightly hazy amber hued brew which supports a thin white lasting head and generous lacing. The flavor is a balanced juggle of malts and hops. Tropical fruit, biscuit, pine, resin and crisp hoppy bitter finish. Medium body and medium carbonation. Snappy mouthfeel. Overall, tasty, refreshing, and very drinkable.

bottle pour..pours at typical dipa medium orange pour..good amount of carbonation..left a 2 finger frothy head that dissipates to a nice single ring layer all around...nose is citrus fruit with pineapple..mango present..first sit hits with a distinct bitterness but after that wave not getting much in the bitterness here...mouthfeel is alright..clean..fresh tasting..however not getting dominant much of anything in the way of a juicy, hoppy dipa or a pine bomb..

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Golden color with a white head. Fruity pineapple aroma. Light malty start. Tropical fruit, pineapple, light scallions flavor in the back of my mouth. Finish is a little metallic. Not much bitterness. 9% alcohol is really masked. Seems a little light for a DIPA but a Nice brew.
