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

Beerenberger (1601) - 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.

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..

Bottle. Only a little bitter for a 9% IIPA. Fruity esters and aromas. Balanced out by the wheat, flowers, and bread. Really excellent texture. So smooth. And lots of flavor.

dlovell2 (1729) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 8, 2014
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.

Lots of herbal hops over a sweet malt background. I had this at the Brooklyn Brewery a few years ago, but I was drunk then and this is different from what I remember. Not bad.

Dr.Drei (27) - New York, USA - APR 30, 2014
Drank from a bottle poured into a tulip glass. There’s an earthy hop aroma, but nothing very strong. It has a nice palate. It’s very drinkable. Moderate bitterness. The taste, like the aroma, is toward the conservative side, with a good balance of hopiness and maltiness, but with both toned way down compared to other DIPAs. That said, it seems more like a richer pale ale, but to call it a DIPA seems like a stretch to me. Not Brooklyn’s best. But a good beer worth trying.
