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.

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

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.
