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

Vignale (2365) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2015
Flaska från Saveur-bier. En fullödig DIPA som är rejält humlad åt det fenoliska hållet. Mycket tall, resin, fotogen. Saknar lite renhet, balans och fruktighet för att riktigt uppskatta den här. Känns spretigt överhumlad, 12 humlesorter kanske är ett par för mycket. Men eftersmaken klingar ut fint.

paintedmaple (493) - Fenton, Michigan, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Tap...golden brown pour with a minimal head this has a floral aroma that leads to a sip of hop flowers, pine, and citrus. Well balanced with a slightly sweet malt backbone that finished crisp and fairly dry.

Sjohnh (347) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2015
That’s a nice DIPA - good balance of flavour and power without straying into wincing levels of alcohol. Colour is somewhere between amber and burnt orange, with just a hint of white head. Medium to full body, with a lively mouthfeel. Pine and citrus aroma. Plenty of fruit in the taste - pineapple, orange apricot - with a touch of caramel and a strong, but not overpowering, bitter finish.
