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

Ferris (12890) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 4, 2013
Draft - Tons of tropical fruit, so pleasant and a nice contrast to the pine/grapefruit we normally see. Cloudy orange with a thick medium head. Citrus punch of the bat with more tropical fruit and a mild bitterness. Very deceptive flavour considering the high ABV. Dry finish with a hint of resin. Very different, but pretty good.
