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

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 31, 2008
Draught goblet (12 oz?) at American Flatbread in Burlington, VT (May 2008). Bright, oily translucent gold with a lasting bit of bright white foam and nice lacing....fresh, sweet aroma: honey, resinous hops, very inviting with no alcoholic harshness...body is sweet, juicy, lightly syrupy, with floral and faintly bitter notes...dry, clean, slightly mineralic-salty finish, verging on crisp with the syrupy thickness almost entirely washed away....nicely done, one of the best beers I’ve had from Brooklyn.

DrNosha (184) - Baden Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - OCT 12, 2015
0,33l Flasche. Kräftige Hopfen Aromen. Kräuter, citrus. Antrunk wuchtig bitter. Dann kommt der Alkohol. Sehr langer bitterer Grapefruit Abgang.

basspro76 (426) - New York, USA - OCT 12, 2015
Very strong floral notes, almost burns the nostrils. Appearance is a gorgeous sun fire golden brown yellow red. Taste is very alcoholy, floral notes, some sting and burn and a nice crisp aftertaste. And with a high ABV, it’ll get you drunk!

nazbion (147) - Tübingen, GERMANY - OCT 9, 2015
Pours golden yellow with creamy white head. Strong hoppy aroma, a blend of citric, tropical fruits and herbal. Taste is sweet and bitter, some alcohol is noticeable. Medium body, light carbonation.

From bottle was surprised to learn it was as an IIPA as it lacks the punch. Nice for an IPA though would have more than one

fiveacestx (826) - Texas, USA - OCT 1, 2015
Bottle - medium dark gold with an average head. Has a peachy aroma. Like a lot of the other reviews this DIPA is a little out of the norm. Not that hoppy and rather fruity.

rumproasts (4241) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 28, 2015
Bottle. Golden with small head. Medium body, slightly boozy. Not as Hoppy as I expected, but nice citrus flavor. Moderate bitterness.

bhiner41 (188) - Darien, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2015
Not quite an Imperial IPA taste or palate. Finish is flat. Hopping could be increased as the flavor isnt too strong. Alcohol content really the driver behind imperial IPA.

I really enjoyed this beer. It should be sold in a 6 pack instead of a 4. Moderate hopping for a double.

drpimento (2536) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 12, 2015
Seems like kind of an odd duck - like there was something more going on here, but the show’s over. Aroma is oxidized hop, woodsy, caramel. Flavor’s like nose, overly sweet. Overall ok.

ramboraffe (1344) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2015
355 ml bottle. Dark bar, could not see colour. Malty caramel with hoppy fruit, mango and exotic fruit. Semi sweet with medium bitterness and medium carbonation.
