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

ChtiBreizh (323) - Rennes, FRANCE - AUG 20, 2015
Orange with nearly no head. Alcoholic, sweet malts, bitter pine. Fruits nearly absent, weird hops. Medicinal. Just confirming I hate dipas...

TXBadger (2076) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy darker golden amber color with off-white head. Pine, herbal notes, floral notes, and light fruits on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with a nice stickiness for a DIPA.

milewide (1816) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 11, 2015
Too much alcohol! Hop profile was strongly pine and herbal, rather than fruity. Too many hop varieties might just muddy the flavor profile!

Lilja (2275) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2015
Flaska från Saveur Bieré. Smak och doft av humle, malt, citrus, honung, persika med toner av karamell, örter och granskott. Tjock, fruktig marmelad, rund och len, mycket smak, välbalanserad, annorlunda, fin maltsötma, goda smaker, fin beska. Mycket gott!

JorisPPattyn (8795) - Ursel, BELGIUM - AUG 4, 2015
Small yellowish head over hazy orange beer with very small bubbling. Fruity/veggie nose, with celery, very light citrus, faintly catty. Not very tremendous, in fact. Arachide, fatty acids, tannine-like hopoils. Retronasal some citrus, grapefruitpeel, finishing with a touch of walnutbread. Feels more spritzy than it looks; not very well-bodied; slight astringency. Garrett, don’t tell me you never heard about the virtues of simplicity.

jimhilt (2490) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 3, 2015
Pours a three-fingered white head that quickly fades leaving traces of lace. Light hazy amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Pine hop nose and flavor is pine hops and some caramel. Higher ABV is hidden. $3.69 for a 12oz bottle from Julio’s Liquors Westborough, MA.

MoritzF (8926) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JUL 30, 2015
(bottle, 35.5cl) Hazy, orange-golden colour with a short and slightly off-white foamy head. Piney and complex fruity hoppy aroma with notes of grapefruit, pineapples and grass, backed by a mildly biscuity malty touch. Sweet and mildly bitter flavour, medium to full bodied with a smooth carbonation. Biscuity malty base with loads of fruity, slightly floral and resiny hops; lingering, moderately sweet and discreetly bitter finish with mainly fruity hops in the aftertaste. The alcohol is very muted and thus deceptive. 20.III.15
