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.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 16, 2011
Tap Maple Tree Inn, Blue Island, IL.: Golden orange pour with moderate white haed. Nose is strongly hop-forward...citrus and pine. Flavors are similarly hop oriented...orange, lemon, pine resin...but pretty well balnced by the sweet lighly roasted caramel and toffee malt. Alcohol pretty strong and drying in the finish as well. Enjoyable hop forward IPA.

Palme (3302) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 21, 2014
0.355l bottle. Smells really nice this. Lots of piney, birchy dark branchy bitter goodness with citrus, orange zest bitterness, blood oranges, some sulfur thingy and ripe yeasty fruits. It looks quite nice also with a cloudy almost glowing deep orange colored body under a big superbly lacing off-white. Lots of flavor also. I get that dry licorice thing that oh so many double ipas gives me in the first sip. Almost like white licorice, and often when I get that I really like the beer. It’s quite piney and orange-citrussy. Feels thick and oily in the mouth and the carbonation is just about spot on. Quite nice to drink this. Some ripe fruity thing towards the finish. Almost like yeast and it’s leaving a hoppy and fruity aftertaste. Yeah, a solid one indeed! 20.06.2014

Pours gold with white head and not much lacing. Aroma of tropical and citrus fruit. Smelled liked like the suntan lotion that I just bought. Taste is the same with a noticeable alcohol bite.
