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

patxa (204) - MEXICO - NOV 18, 2013
One of the best tastes ever for an IPA. Complex and hoppy, with notes of several spices and flowers. Same for the aroma. Dry finish but short on the palate, kind of abrupt.

mkel07 (4343) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 1, 2013
On tap at Archive Beer Boutique. Aptly named this beer blasts your taste buds all over your mouth. Hop bomb goes off.

teorn88 (3630) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2013
Keg at Draft House Charlotte. It pours orange with long lasting, fluffy white head. Aroma is of citrusy hops, caramel malt and ripe fruit. Body is full and tangy. Taste is similar to aroma with noticeable alcohol. Finish is long and dry. Quite good

radio_nowhere (1211) - Maryland, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Draft at Good Ta Go in Chambersburg, PA. Typical golden-amber color with white head. Aroma of citrus/piney hops and malt sweetness. Taste is more fruity then aroma led on (orangy/grapefuity notes), some light caramel, with honey/candy malt sweetness for balance. Medium body, moderate carbonation, bitter, smooth with a dry bitter finish. Pretty solid IIPA, have yet to see it bottled around here.
