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 thats beautifully hoppy, strangely quaffable and oddly compelling. Minerally hop bitterness is followed by a shock wave of flavor and aroma. You wont 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

Blueshawk (465) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2016
- schne gold-orangene Farbe mit leichter Schaumbildung - fruchtig-blumiges Aroma - perfekte Kohlensuredosierung - ausgewogener Geschmack - die Bitternis drngt sich im Gegensatz zu anderen Double IPAs nicht so sehr in den Vordergrund - ebenso unbemerkt bleibt geschmacklich der hhere Alkoholgehalt - der Abgang hinterlsst eine spritzig fruchtig-bittere Note Fazit: Unfassbar gut und das auch noch zu einem annehmbaren Preis

TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2016
Bottle. Aroma is way bigger than the flavour. The aroma is complex, with every non-New Zealand hop flavour being accounted for. The flavour is interesting, with stuff like tobacco and medicine, and pot, but it doesn't match up to the aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ninecats (527) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2016
Bottle at Harrys, Uddevall. Semi hazy golden, huge white head with yellow nuances, lots of lacings. Aroma is soft sweet malt with floral and tropical notes, citrus and flowers, as well as some dough and bread. Taste is medium sweet with lychee, flowery hoppy feel, slight peppery note and a dryness in the finish. Medium body with very rounded mouth feel, low carbo. Solid!

eduardovl (1401) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 6, 2016
330ml served in a pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden color forming a medium but resistant light yellow head that leaves some lingering lacings in the glass. Nose os very fruity, very citric. Strong notes of grapefruit and zest. Some notes of pine, passion fruit, herb and sweet pale malts. Hints of caramel. Taste is slightly sweet in upfront. Strong notes of sweet pale malts, grapefruit, orange zest. Touches of pine and passion fruit. Medium bitterness for the style. Not the type of very caramel IIPA. Full body. Medium carbonation. Grassy, piney, citrus aftertaste. Good persistence. Good drinkability. Actually, you quite "light" to a 8.4% ABV. I was expecting it to be slightly sweeter and bitterer but although another great Ale from Brooklyn.

Idiosynkrasie (7218) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 28, 2016
355ml bottle. Murky, orangey dark golden to amber colour with small to average, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Slightly perfumed, floral, hoppy aroma, notes of petals with flavours hard to elaborate further than "somehow purple", cautious citrusy fruity hints. Taste is slightly sweet malty with an almond touch, floral and slightly citrusy hoppy, moderate bitterness, notes of lemon, a touch of lime.

kramer (6576) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2016
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow gold body with a small fizzy white head that faded to a very thin ring. The nose is citrusy and slightly resiny hops with a pale malt base. The flavor is rather bracingly bitter up front at first, but the hop flavor emerges a bit with some citrusy fruitiness. A nice bready and doughy malt base that provides a nice backdrop for all the hops without being sweet or heavy on the caramel like a lot of DIPAs. Medium to full bodied with a softness to it thats unusual for the style. Pretty nice beer, I could drop a few of these guys.
