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 thatís beautifully hoppy, strangely quaffable and oddly compelling. Minerally hop bitterness is followed by a shock wave of flavor and aroma. You wonít even know what hit you.

Nice amber color with small white head and amazing clean lacing. Aroma and flavor had light citrus notes and light bitter hops. Good overall, balanced, but a little boring. Still a good drink

TET (1578) - FINLAND - JUL 31, 2014
An orange colour, a head is medium and blond. Aroma is good and based on the aromatic and tropical fruits. Mangos, grapefruits, some fructose. Taste has citrusfruits, grapefruits, some caramell and hint of dill. At least medium bitterness that is quite smooth and evolves slowly. Not too sweet but not even close to dry. Medium+ bodied, nice and quite strong carbonation to lightening the palate. Good balance and enjoyability are the best parts of this DIPA.

35,5 cl bottle @ home, BBE 10/2014
Aroma is fruity and sweetish with pineapples and citrus. Also some malty tones and hints of peaches. Flavour has gluey tones, grapefruit, some citrus, caramel and heavy malty tones. Aroma was promising but flavour is a bit off.

@ Nya Carnegie: stor doft av humle och frukt. Smaken är mycket humlig och full av citrusfrukter. Fin eftersmak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

Bottle. Cloudy light orange pour with a small head that fades to a ring. Aroma is very citrus-y. Also has some herbs, mango, and light pineapple. Taste has a nice juicy citrus and tropical fruit flavor but thereís also some herbal and medicinal notes that throw it off. Finish is juicy oranges mostly. Mouthfeel is solid as well. Iíd like this a lot more without the medicinal feel.

A - cloudy dark orange with little head A - citrus notes followed by the sweetness of malt T - a lot of lemon and citrus in the palette. Ends with a sweetness that hides the 8% ABV well M - well carbonated O - good east coast IPA. Not my preferred style due to the sweetness of the malt and use if English hops but overall good beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tricyclist (690) - Florida, USA - JUL 28, 2014
A really nice rendition of a double IPA. Itís got a great citrus aroma thatís super bright and vibrant. The flavors follow through just like I would want them to. Clean, bright finish with plenty of citrus.

DocJitsu (845) - Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Pours a mildly cloudy golden color with a sudsy, antique white head. Floral, citrusy hoppy nose with some malty underpinnings. Full, somewhat oily mouthfeel. Good balance of malt and mild pine and citrus.

Mittelgelbdunkel, leicht trüb, leicht alkoholisch süß in der Nase, nicht zu bitter, sehr süß irgendwie, aber auch hopfig, allerdings verliert sich das Aroma irgendwo zwischen den ganzen Sorten, trotzdem ziemlich lecker
