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.

16/VI/14 - 12Fl. Oz. bottle from a trade @ home - BB: VI/2014 (2014-644) Thanks to Abu Nasim for the trade!

Clear deep orange beer, creamy irregular yellowish head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very fruity, pineapple, passion fruit, sweet mango, piny, sweet caramel, bit sugary, green tea. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: bit oxidized, bitter touch, honey, sweet, very chemical kind of bitterness, some alcohol. Aftertaste: bitter, some honey, dry, bit grassy, hay, very malty, grains. Too old, alas... :( Probably much better when fresh.

Simonsen (585) - NORWAY - JUL 13, 2014
Flaske fra vinmonopolet vika. Gylden, uklar farge. Hvit skumrand. Moderat karbonert. Smaker høy, appelsinskall, grapefrukt, gjær. Ganske fruktig humlet ettersmak. Double ipa indeed

metalspice (23) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - JUL 9, 2014
Drukket på Bakklandet skysstasjon i Trondheim. Overraskende lyst med lite skum. Komplekse smaker som henger i lenge.

Block (1319) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUL 7, 2014
A nice gold pour with a thin white head. Aroma is hoppy, bitter, slightly floral. Flavor is robust with a great hop flavor followed by a sweet and malty finish. The alcohol is masked extremely well and this beer is very sessionable.

Bluegoosed (25) - - JUL 5, 2014
Not overly deep/flavorful for a double IPA. Mild hops, some citrus/grapefruit, and pine. Very average in my opinion.
