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

Red/orange pour with a white head. Aroma is earthy hops, malt. Taste is yum. Nice balance of spicy and earthy hops. Spicy on the tongue, earthy in the finish. Nice malty backbone bringing it all out. Nice to see Brooklyn beers in my rural area finally. So-so lacing. Alc. well hidden.

Hazy amber body with nice lasting offwhite head. Aroma is hoppy with some grapefruit. Smooth and hoppy with an unbitter balance of nice bready malts. This is a nice well balanced beer.

Draft at the Blue Dog. Awesome arome. Hints of champagne grapes with a blood orange feel. Orange look with thin head. Very smooth and good flavor that goes down quick. Almost a grapefruit taste but not quite. Good balance. Good brew. Cheers!

Somewhat hazy amber/gold in appearance with a very small pale yellow head. Aroma is very sweet with notes of oranges, bananas, grapes, and a nice hoppy floral background. Flavor is fairly close to the aroma but with a more some more earthy sweetness thrown in. Grapefruit in the finish, medium bodied.

On draft (in a plastic cup!) at the brewery. Pours an orange amber with average off white head. Nose is pineapple, grapefruit, citrus, and pine. Taste is grapefruit, mandarin orange, pineapple with a little pine. Moderate bitterness. I was not expecting much and was really pleasantly surprised by this. Very fresh.
