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

UDBeernut (2638) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Golden hue with abundant off white head, decent amount of lacing. Nose and mouth of resin, pine, citrus held together by an ample malt and caramel body. Body is full but abrupt on finish.

Zarrach76 (9) - FRANCE - SEP 19, 2016 does not count
La brasserie Brooklyn nous habitue à de très bons produits, et celui-ci ne déroge pas à la règle. Belle couleur or/orange légèrement troublée, carbonatation moyenne avec une mousse fine. Au nez aucun doute, nous avons ici une double IPA. On sent très nettement les agrumes, en particulier le pamplemousse et le citron vert, et on décèle aussi des notes de pin et de fleurs. L’alcool est moyennement présent au nez. En bouche, on retrouve ces parfums d’agrumes mais aussi l’amertume des câpres, l’alcool est assez neutre malgré les 8.4%, et cette bière est relativement sucrée ce qui est presque dommageable pour une IPA. L’amertume est longue, elle colle bien au palet, le goût global est très droit, la finale très sèche, malgré une texture assez souple et huileuse. Une bière assez simple en fait, avec des goûts et des saveurs très distincts, sans vraiment de complexité. Une bonne double IPA qui ne va pas non plus nous renverser.

Blueshawk (349) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2016
- schöne gold-orangene Farbe mit leichter Schaumbildung - fruchtig-blumiges Aroma - perfekte Kohlensäuredosierung - ausgewogener Geschmack - die Bitternis drängt sich im Gegensatz zu anderen Double IPAs nicht so sehr in den Vordergrund - ebenso unbemerkt bleibt geschmacklich der höhere Alkoholgehalt - der Abgang hinterlässt eine spritzig fruchtig-bittere Note Fazit: Unfassbar gut und das auch noch zu einem annehmbaren Preis

elosop (309) - SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2016
Dimmigt halmgul med tunt vitt skum. Doftar lite citrus och kåda. Smaken angenämt besk, halm och malt. Eftersmaken lång med fin humlebeska. Mkt god för en DIPA.

TheJester (2533) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2016
Bottle. Aroma is way bigger than the flavour. The aroma is complex, with every non-New Zealand hop flavour being accounted for. The flavour is interesting, with stuff like tobacco and medicine, and pot, but it doesn't match up to the aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ninecats (487) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2016
Bottle at Harrys, Uddevall. Semi hazy golden, huge white head with yellow nuances, lots of lacings. Aroma is soft sweet malt with floral and tropical notes, citrus and flowers, as well as some dough and bread. Taste is medium sweet with lychee, flowery hoppy feel, slight peppery note and a dryness in the finish. Medium body with very rounded mouth feel, low carbo. Solid!

eduardovl (1354) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 6, 2016
330ml served in a pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden color forming a medium but resistant light yellow head that leaves some lingering lacings in the glass. Nose os very fruity, very citric. Strong notes of grapefruit and zest. Some notes of pine, passion fruit, herb and sweet pale malts. Hints of caramel. Taste is slightly sweet in upfront. Strong notes of sweet pale malts, grapefruit, orange zest. Touches of pine and passion fruit. Medium bitterness for the style. Not the type of very caramel IIPA. Full body. Medium carbonation. Grassy, piney, citrus aftertaste. Good persistence. Good drinkability. Actually, you quite "light" to a 8.4% ABV. I was expecting it to be slightly sweeter and bitterer but although another great Ale from Brooklyn.

Idiosynkrasie (6415) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 28, 2016
355ml bottle. Murky, orangey dark golden to amber colour with small to average, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Slightly perfumed, floral, hoppy aroma, notes of petals with flavours hard to elaborate further than "somehow purple", cautious citrusy fruity hints. Taste is slightly sweet malty with an almond touch, floral and slightly citrusy hoppy, moderate bitterness, notes of lemon, a touch of lime.
