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

355ml bottle from Beerhawk. Thin white head, little lacing. Slightly hazy orange body. Nose is earthy, citrus. Flavour is balance of earthy and citrus hops, burnt orange finish. Hints of booze linger. Good mouthfeel, medium carbonation, fairly chewy. Interesting combination of English and US hops.

mjs (6395) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 30, 2015
(Keg at OlutExpo 2015) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness and sweetness. Palate was meidum bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, malts, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, hoppy and bitter. A balanced and easily drinkable hoppy pale ale. And Sorachi Ace was well hidden, good.

Tap (OlutExpo2015, Helsinki)
Some shampoo soapiness - head and shoulders. Getting some US-05 fingerprint in there too. Bright gold, clear, small tight head. Smells a bit alcoholic, but there’s none in the taste. Super freshi hops in the taste, simple caramelly and bready malts too. Finish has dry bitter husky grains, bitter hops and alas some soapiness in the finish.

Lecker, hatte davor ein Mikeller Green, Zeichen den beiden liegen Welten! Toller Geruch, schön fruchtig, relativ alkoholisch. Tolle Krone und goldgelbe Farbe, ganz leicht trüb, keine Schwebstoffe! Geschmacklich ein klassisches IPA, tropisch, Zitrus. Toller Weizen, Pilsener tut jedem Bier gut. Schöne Auswahl der einzelnen Zutaten. Nichts was man nicht schon probiert hätte, aber extrem gut hergestellt und tolles Bier für die Abendstunden. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Maris (1365) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - OCT 15, 2015
From a 355ml bottle on 15/10/2015. Pours a medium golden with a small white head. Has a quite strong, dense fruity, syrupy aroma. Flavour wise, it’s not at all typical of a DIPA - there’s heaps of sweet and sour citrus fruit, with the flavour quite dense and a touch boozy. There’s biscuit and caramel malt, a touch of spice, and a decent dash of hops, but it’s quite light on bitterness wise for the style. The palate is a touch syrupy and the carbonation soft. Interesting enough, but not a home run for mine.
