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

Very nice pine aroma. Taste is a little intense but balanced and a little juicy.

From the four pack of bottles, pours a hazy orange middle, yellow outside with a small white collar. The description is correct in that the English hops are dirty and gritty and the west coast hops have some fruit to them. Good solid taste overall and the 8.4% makes it all the more enjoyable. I like when artists throw stuff together and it works, whether that be chefs, painters, or beer makers.

maneliquor (3463) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 26, 2015
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Nothing crazy about this, its just a really well made double IPA. Solid as fuck balance between resinous undertones, stickiness and tropical fruit. Good bitterness to finish it off. Good stuff

De couleur ambrée pâle assez clair il n’y a pas beaucoup de mousse Honey on va sentir des notes d’oranges amères de pamplemousse En bouche on va sentir des saveurs de marmelade, d’ agrumes confits On va sentir aussi une bonne longueur en bouche et une amertume convenable

bigda83 (415) - Jamestown, New York, USA - JUN 15, 2015
Bottle. Poured a clear golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma had hints of floral and citrus fruit, but otherwise malty. Flavor had some grapefruit, bitter, and sweet maltiness. Body felt light for the style and the texture was pretty thin. Average carbonation and a bitter finish. Wasn’t impressed and not sure if the bottle was old, or it’s just a bad beer.
