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

ClubGonzo (5663) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2014 Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a slightly hazy orange body with a small white head. Nose is intense peachy tones, red berries, apricot, mango, hints of pine and mango. Quite lovely, really. Taste is red berries, apricot, grass and hints of mango and peaches. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Not bad, a very archetypical DIPA from Brooklyn, but the aroma outdoes the actual taste.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - JUN 17, 2014
Bottle: Cloudy, deep golden-yellow body with a moderate white head that foams up quickly & settles as a timid skin & ring around the glass. Aroma of dirty hops; big dankness, sticky & skunky just a bit with a strong earth & dirt undertone. Big resinous note. Pine, faint floral tones, & a back-end with some dripping citrus flesh. Bigger citrus presence on the palate... Quite large, actually, with strong notes of grapefruit, orange flesh, & mild lemon even. Hints here & there of resinous pine, hop oil, & a bit of sweetness thats hard to pinpoint - the malt is mostly pale with only a minor biscuit note, no caramel or toffee flavors in this one. Zesty lemon, orange & herbal tea leaves linger into the finish, dry & medium bodied overall. A pretty tasty DIPA when all is said & done.

Hazy amber/orange color. Hoppy aroma of orange and fruits with caramel. Sweet taste of fruits , pine and caramel malt , balanced by soft hoppy bitterness. Very soft and drinkable double IPA.

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.

bottle at Hall Toll - Stavanger. Thin white head with nice balanced hops flavors from the "9 different origins". Orangish yellow body. Excellent balance between delicate spices and warm length in mouth.

jrodooo5 (1627) - 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!
