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

Glucose (4) - New Hampshire, USA - MAR 8, 2014 does not count
Draft from freshly tapped keg. I had the first non-foamy pint from the keg. Delicious! Not much of a nose, but mostly due to my having a sinus issue at the time. Gave this a mid-range value since I was unable to tell. Color a clear light amber. Head was as previously described by others - once the newly tapped keg stopped acting up, there was about a finger of slightly off-white head, which dropped off to a few mm after about 4-5 minutes. Pretty direct taste of citrus, pine, resinous, very very intense. No fooling around here. Mouth feel was sharp, shocking sharp, but in a good way. NOT something you can quaff - the flavor and mouthfeel was too intense for that. I had to sip it very slowly. Savor the intensity. Shazam! would also have been a good name for it!

Bierkrug (2130) - - MAR 8, 2014
On Tap at The Vega Lounge in Pompano Beach FL. Is an Orange-amber color with a big off-white head and decent lacing. Aroma of resin, pine oil, caramel, and citrus. Taste is pretty mildly bitter and quite malty. It’s pretty well balanced. Palate is very smooth for an IPA of which I am no fan of the style.But this is not bad at all.

En närmast perfekt balanserad Dipa. Saknar dock andra tyngre nyanser . En bra lätt sommar Dipa. Dock för 9% borde man fått mer karaktär..

Niksko (571) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 7, 2014
Pours a golden orange with off white head. Pineapple and orange nose, caramel too. Slightly dank, stone fruits, rounded orange hop finish. Pretty good, but slightly off kilter.

BLADT (695) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 5, 2014
Poured from 12oz bottle. Clean orange in glass. Thin white head. Reserved lemon pith and floral hops on the nose. Moderately carbonated and dry. Peach and pomelo fruit notes, with some brown sugar sweetness. Good effort and a great DIPA considering the normal bodega selections.

Poured from a bottle...pours a clear light copper. Pine, citrus & malt on the nose, much of the same down the hatch. Nice bitterness, not too overpowering, well balanced ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear golden orange with average head and lacing. Aromas of citrus, coriander, orange peel. Remarkably tame for a double IPA, well balanced with generous hops and notes of tangerines and grapefruit. Great beer.

agl108 (1005) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2014
On draft at Bocktown Robinson. Poured hazy orange with just a skim of head present. Flavor starts sweet with grass and light citrus then turns a fairly sharp bitter with a dry finish.

adnielsen (10374) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle @ home, via trade. Pours a slightly dark orange appearance with a lasting cream colored head. Slightly metallic and a bit of bubblegum in the nose. Pretty juicy, herbal hoppy nose. Slightly doughy, chewy malty flavor. A bit juicy. Pils grainy / herbal. This bottle seems a bit dated, but the beer seems not too shabby.

r464 (2250) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Very nicely balanced. Strong hops, hints of citrus zest, smooth with some malt underlying it all. Not too bitter or sharp, and surprisingly drinkable given the alcohol content.
