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

mcmisko (352) - New York, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Clover honey yellow with a small off white head. Smells like mixed floral arrangement, little malty too. Taste is sweet malts, honey, and light colored fruits. Body is med full. Seems to be lacking the bite of a strong hop presence, and slightly too sweet for a double ipa. I expected more bitter hops. Still not bad.

Reconqvista (100) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 22, 2015
Orange color beer with a weak white head. Aroma is very hoppy, grass, orange and peach. Flavor is more bitter and sweety malty. Thick body and refined carbonation that sparkles the tongue at the end.

jookos (3080) - FINLAND - MAR 19, 2015
Bottle. Orange amber light haze. Quite english hops profile. Citrus, grassy leaves, herbs. And a crackery maltyness. Med bodied, quite easy, nice, with a bitter finish. Citrus and grassy herbs. Toasty caramels. Ok. But surprised with the englishness. Super clean though, hintkng that it’s really is made in the us.

McNeillR (1568) - SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2015
Pale golden, clear enough and greasy film with soft ringed head. Minty citrus with a garish sweetness. Initial taste of clean soapy citrus, lean bitterness and gummy sweetness. Grass. Little bit clammy. Softly sweet. Fairly solid where it needs to be.

Bottle, Cornelius, TAD Tasting
