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.

Dorwart (2370) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Thin offwhite head of fine bubbles. Nice citrusy aroma with mangos, pineapple, light grainy malts and some lime. Color is a nice dark orange. Flavor has lots of caramel malts, light piney hops, some white pepper and grapefruit pith. Zippy and fizzy mouthfeel with a light alcohol presence. Finishes dry and puckering with lingering grapefruit. A decent IIPA.

vandc01 (55) - North Branch, Minnesota, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Poured from a 12oz bottle with a date of Sept 2004. Aroma - not a lot of aroma, might be due to age of the bottle, even though it is still before the drink by date of Sept. Appearance - Pours to a hazy golden color with a half finger of white head. Taste - Really smooth and very tasty. Love the bite at the end of the tongue Palate - great taste...great bite. Overall - Really like this beer. Hides the 8.4% very well. .
