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.

Ungstrup (29334) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 1, 2005
[At Fynske Øldage 2005] A hazy orange beer with a nice off-white head. The aroma is quite hoppy with flowery and grassy notes, while the flavor is sweet and quite hoppy combined with some notes of grass and fruit - I’m thinking grapefruit. Nice not too overwhelming double IPA - though it is not listed as such.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2005
(On tap) Slightly hazy, pale amber with a creamy, off-white head leaving some very neat lacework in my glass. Distinct, oily hop aroma. Fruity, slightly caramelish sweetness, but mainly dominated by the aroma hops which only are pleasant, not overly bitter. Dry, hoppy finish. Really hope that Brooklyn will bottle this at some stage. 291005

Hazy golden color; creamy head. The aroma is very fruity (hops), and resiny, with Fuggles aroma too. Good body strength, malty, a lot of sugars. Extreme hopping (bitter, fruity, resiny…). One more hop juice. Excellent.
