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

Pours a three-fingered white head that quickly fades leaving traces of lace. Light hazy amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Pine hop nose and flavor is pine hops and some caramel. Higher ABV is hidden. $3.69 for a 12oz bottle from Julio’s Liquors Westborough, MA.

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.

rougeau13 (2543) - Richmond, Texas, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Tap at Flying Saucer Sugar Land. Orange-amber with a big off-white head and decent lacing. Aroma of resin, wet dog, caramel, and citrus. Taste is pretty mildly bitter and quite malty. It’s pretty well balanced, but the hops are a little muddied. Medium bodied. Not bad at all.
