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

On tap at Store House in New York. Flavorful, but leaves an aftertaste that just doesn't do it for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Grumbo (1216) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2015
Bottle shared at the Ale House, Chelmsford. Pours a cloudy amber colour with a small white head. Aroma of hop, caramel, bread and sweet malt. Medium sweetness, bitterness comes through. Very drinkable but not got the wow factor this style can deliver.

dogbomb (1151) - ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2015
Bottle. Pours gold with a quite quickly thinning white head. Nose is strong! You can smell thing thing from a mile away! Mango, pineapple, malts, tangerine. Very full flavour in the mouth. Initial biscuits and toffee, mango and tropical fruits. A warmth across the tongue, a little whisky. Warmth AND flavour filling the mouth. Delicious!

Alengrin (4437) - BELGIUM - NOV 16, 2015
Brooklyn’s IIPA with stable, moussy, off-white, thinnish head and light peachy blonde colour, hazy. Aroma of orange peel, grapefruit, biscuit, green apple, lemon zest, flowers, dry white wine, kiwi, lemongrass. Crisp, restrainedly fruity onset, hints of mango, lychee and kiwi, supple body with soft carbo, smooth lightly caramelly malt base, bit bready, very pleasant and well in balance with the hoppiness in the finish, which provides a ton of citrusy and floral aromas retronasally; bittering power, however, remains fairly limited for the style. Not too abrasive even for a double IPA, more on the elegant, balanced side of the style.
