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

AssKicker (184) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - FEB 19, 2016
Bière blonde ayant une bonne carbonatation, mais à la mousse qui s’estompe rapidement. Nez porté sur le houblon avec des notes de fruit de la passion particulièrement agréable. Une très bonne IPA bien rafraîchissante.

Quick3Beers (847) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 16, 2016
Pours a slightly hazy orange-amber from a bottle, thin, white, quickly-dissipating head leaving some lacing. Grapefruity aroma. Lemon/grapefruit flavor with a bit of an odd pine punch a second after you sip. Biscuity flavor as well, sort of tastes like some refined jam cookie, just with that weird pine bit thrown in. Good beer.

Bottle from Market Street Wine Shop downtown. Pours a hazy golden-orange with a small off-white head. Lovely aroma of orange juice, ruby-red grapefruits, melon, grass. Taste is very similar. Not overpowering some some double IPAs.

freretoc (1553) - Besançon, FRANCE - JAN 31, 2016
Bue en bouteille de 355ml chez Anne. Couleur blonde un peu trouble, peu de mousse effervescence moyenne. Nez sur le houblon le malt et fruit de la passion. Attaque forte sur l’amertume. Puis sur les fruits de la passion fin de bouche maltée sèche en bouche et trop pataude.
