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

madsberg (10804) - 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.
