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 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

RyanK (275) - Rhode Island, USA - JUN 14, 2014
12oz bottle from 4pack purchased at Charlestown Wine & Spirits RI. Pours a hazy golden with a foamy white head. Smells of biscuit flavored malts, I also pick up some alcohol from the aroma not much complex. Light bodied, moderate carbonation and easy drinkability when cold the alcohol is well hidden, packs a punch at 9% which I can feel. Hops are light and citrisy, the biscuit malt backbone is more dominant in what is a well balanced brew. Brooklyn really likes there English malts not a far cry from the original IPA or summer none of which or bad so Ill drop it.

jrodooo5 (1583) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Very good copper pour w/ a long retaining white head that leaves lacing. The aroma is fairly hoppy but not over the top. The taste is refreshing, clean, & just a tad bitter. Its wonderful on the palate for the style & goes down easy for 9%. Great ipa!

Aromas of oranges, white peach, maybe parsimmon, subtle tropical fruit, some slight caramel, some honey. Clear orange-amber with a lasting white head. Off-dry, bitter, spicy hops, some sweet malt. Light-medium bodied, finishes pretty abrupty, and pretty clean, some lingering hops, some heat.

Bottle. Pours out a lightly cloudy orange color with a very small white head. Aroma is of cracker and biscuit malts, light herbal bitterness, not much on the nose. Taste improves, biscuity malts, light sweetness, mild grass, citrus, grainy notes. Its solid but lacks complexity.
