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

Theydon_Bois (11079) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2014
Keg at the Bottle Shop, Bermondsey, on my 40th crawl 11/10/14. Lightly hazed golden orange with a decent beige covering that retains well. Nose is caramel malt, bread dough, spice, bitter orange, light tropicana. Taste comprises bitter tropicals, light pine, orange pith, grapefruit, caramel malt, mandarin, candied fruit peel. Medium + body, fine carbonation, lightly warming booze in the close. Ok DIPA, hides the ABV fairly well, not one I’d rush back to though - kind of a safe bet offering, this Bois prefers more hoppage!

madsberg (10593) - Søborg, DENMARK - NOV 1, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2008 Just had it again. Very fresh, crisp and hoppy. Loads of citrus, pine and flowers. Is a better beer than I remembered. Draught @ Fynske Øldage: Orange coloured. Unclear. Dense off white head. Sweet, flowery and hoppy aroma. Flavour is herbal and hoppy. Sweet and fruity and quite fresh. Is well bodied. Nice bitter in the end. Refreshing and dry. good one. Was told by the tender, that it was Brooklyns Douple IPA, which sounds right.

Drake (9932) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 5, 2008
Draft Pours a light orange with a huge head, though the girl who was serving had no clue how to pour a beer, so the head is probably overstated. Big citrusy wet-hop like aroma with some pine and resin notes. Taste is citrus and resin hops with an almost cheeselike character. Sticky and full bodied.

Bottle… First Annual Treasure Coast Beer Festival 2008… Hazy, light golden ale with a large, creamy, white head. Excellent retention. Citrusy, peppery, perfumy hop aroma with a rumor of dry leather. Medium-bodied and caustic with modest carbonation. Mostly bitter, perfumy and fruity flavor. Crisp, dry finish.
