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

Mad_Ferret (1006) - SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2014
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.

borre_m (1339) - NORWAY - MAY 25, 2014
Sample at Haand. Pours clear golden. Aroma of grass and pine. In the taste I was expecting it to be a bit more hoppy, But it does have the grass and pine. Nicely balanced

cards04 (2686) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 24, 2014
An excellent double IPA. Pours a nice peachy color with fizzy white head. Great tropical fruit nose. Then bready malts. Flavors are deceptively smooth for the high abv. Citrus and mango flavors with a seamless hoppy finish. Awesome.

ttutony (851) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Copper color in the glass. Floral and fruity hop aroma. Fairly sweet malt goes up against the hops on the palate, with a slightly heavy mouthfeel. Some nuts and toast from the malt as well.

Nische (1920) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2014
Pours orange-gold with a thin off-white head. Aroma is fruity with pine and caramel. Taste is more of the same with nice hop/malt balance. Smooth finish, quite light on the bitterness.

ronaldtheriot (1799) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - MAY 15, 2014
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

Beerenberger (1602) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAY 13, 2014
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.

Gold pour, nice white head. Aroma is fresh and hoppy, flavor is of grass, citrus and floral hops. Nice.
