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

In short: dry bitter ale.
Pours hazy golden with frothy white head. Short head retention, poor lacing. Malty, fruity nose. Medium body, average carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is quite bitter, fruity, pine and caramel notes. Ends quite dry and bitter.

larsga (6680) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2015
Medium offwhite head. Slightly hazy amber body with light carbonation. Citric pineapple aroma. Not really a great fan of that. Sweet resiny fruity pineapple taste with mealy notes. Mid-to-full body. Mild, soft, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish resiny minty pineapple aftertaste with spicy fruity notes. Tastes much better than the aroma. (0.355l bottle, I forget where from.)

Nejhleader (1326) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2015
Light gold. Bit of a grapefruit aroma, taste is a bit of grapefruit, pine hops. Light body. Not bad.

venom666 (544) - Elche, SPAIN - APR 17, 2015
Hazy orange color with medium off-white head. Aroma is fruity and resiny, with a big malty background. Taste follows the aroma, with that fruitiness from the American hops, resin, floral characters and some malty background with a bit of alcohol. Bitterness is a bit annoying, very soft and quick-fading.

ALLOVATE (2595) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 13, 2015
At just on cool and into a snifter. Hazy orange, dull, with a soapy lather of froth atop. Sweetly floral, bouquet garni herbal and resinous is the nose with a pronounced rose petal note. On the palate it is amplified. So much Chelsea garden show on offer here it was daunting. Floral to ’nth with rose water, lavender, eucalyptus, dandelion, could go on. Not unpleasant, just a strange concoction. Body is light but it is creamy and smooth making it heavier than its weight. Alcohol is masked by the fact it tastes like perfume. Not exactly a glass of enjoyment. (12fl.Oz, BBE 09/15, The Liquor She’d, Jandakot)

Salwal (64) - - APR 10, 2015
Very nice unfiltered amber color. Nose of citrus and wild flowers with hints of barley. As you would stay at the edge of a summerly field. Taste is bitter and long citric finish. One of the better beers I had...
