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

On tap. Pours orange with long lasting, fluffy white head. Aroma is of citrusy hops, caramel malt and ripe fruit. Body is full and tangy. Taste is similar to aroma with noticeable alcohol. Finish is long and dry. This brew will not be among my favorable DIPA’s.

ROGUE (2127) - Newark, Delaware, USA - AUG 5, 2013
On tap 2SP. Pours a clear deep golden color with a white head that fades slowly with light lacing. Smells of fresh hops, citrus and resin. Taste light malt that gives way to hoppy citrus, then dries out with some resiny hops at the finish. Maintains decent malt balance throughout. Medium bodied, and crisp, with a slight stickiness and moderate carbonation.

Pours a clear golden color with a fluffy white head. Aroma of tropical fruit and light pine. Taste is a great balance between Europe and American IPAs. There’s a citrusy, pineapple front with piney bitter finish. We’ll balanced and crisp. Not bad and good price.
