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

malrubius (2612) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - MAY 5, 2013
On tap at the Gate. Golden orange with white ring head. (They overfill their glasses there.) Beautiful floral citrus tangerine aroma that I could smell from two feet away. Nice mild tangerine fruity sweetness. Slightly bready with a nice clean medium bitter citrus fresh hop finish. Very well balanced and easy drinking for abv. Excellent.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 16, 2009
Hazed yellow, firm and tight off-white suds. Nose of fresh hops, grapefruit, crystalized hop buds, maybe even a touch of unripe mango. Firm hoppy flavor profile, definitely damn straight grapefruit and dry...maybe even some other fruits underneath...overall though, nicely dry and super hoppy. I dig.

Bottle from Total Wine in Jensen Beach - saving a bit yet, but had inspiration from reading article from the brewer, thanks bro! Pours Poured an orangey yellow with an off white head. Almost no lacing. Aroma has citrus and pine. And more citrus and pine. A bit of bubblegum later. Taste is of citrus and pine, heavy resin, and some sweeter caramelly malts in the solid backbone. Medium bodied and sticky. Light alcohol presence. Finishes more to the bitter side of bittersweet. This is not a top 10 DIPA, or even close to it, but it is solid and tasty, and likely this breweries’ best offering.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2014 Pretty good DIPA. tap at Draughthouse 42nd anniversary. Hoppy, but not over the top. solid. re-rate Pretty orange color, rich looking with nice head. Smell is pine and caramel and orange like hops. taste is hoppy and bitter with orange and pine and some noticeable alcohol while not bad, detracts from drinkability. Didn’t realize I’d had this already. Probably won’t get it again, but it is decent despite the alcohol presence being noticeable.
