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.

Chapel (468) - Levittown, New York, USA - SEP 6, 2010
Tap at the brewery. Fairly mild for a DIPA actually (to me). Hops are present in both floral and pine flavors. Not bad and rather harder to find than their EIPA.

I generally look down on Brooklyn Brewing as a mediocre company, but this DIPA is beyond most of the products they produce. The appearance is golden/orange; very light for a DIPA. The aroma is floral and pine, as any good IPA should be. The taste is primarily citrus. This is a solid DIPA and I would have it again.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - AUG 1, 2010
Sampled at the 2010 VT Brewers Fest - Poured a nice orange-amber in color with a medium whitish head. Aroma was quite citrusy with some pine resin and a tiny hint of caramel malts. Flavor is all about the hops... citrus, primarily, but some pine resin too. None of the maltiness survived the hop flavors and bitterness. Not well balanced, but a tasty brew.

502Che (999) - @, CAMBODIA - JUL 31, 2010
On tap. It poured a hazy almost yellow color. It aroma and flavor were very solid and on the citric end of the hop spectrum. Where as some IIPAs have serious malt profiles, I feel that this one was all about the hops, which I enjoyed.

mixmasterob (883) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 18, 2010
On tap at the Distillery in Savannah, GA. Poured into a tulip a clear orange with a good white head, excellent retention. Aroma was of strong citrus and resin notes, some pine too. Nothing fancy. Good citrus hop flavors from front to back. Good bitterness in the finish, very clean. A damn good double but there are better ones out there.
