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

Golden color with a white head. Fruity pineapple aroma. Light malty start. Tropical fruit, pineapple, light scallions flavor in the back of my mouth. Finish is a little metallic. Not much bitterness. 9% alcohol is really masked. Seems a little light for a DIPA but a Nice brew.

Lots of herbal hops over a sweet malt background. I had this at the Brooklyn Brewery a few years ago, but I was drunk then and this is different from what I remember. Not bad.

Dr.Drei (27) - New York, USA - APR 30, 2014
Drank from a bottle poured into a tulip glass. Theres an earthy hop aroma, but nothing very strong. It has a nice palate. Its very drinkable. Moderate bitterness. The taste, like the aroma, is toward the conservative side, with a good balance of hopiness and maltiness, but with both toned way down compared to other DIPAs. That said, it seems more like a richer pale ale, but to call it a DIPA seems like a stretch to me. Not Brooklyns best. But a good beer worth trying.

At a tasting, thanks zvikar, small stable creamy head, hazy lightish orange colour, fruity aroma with some citrus and vanila, dusty malty flavour, with a light fruity hoppiness, strong bitterness. Not too good.

deaconmike (470) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - APR 28, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear light amber with 1 finger of ivory head, large bubbles. Minimal lacing. Aroma is a battle between the floral, citrusy hops and the bready malts. Taste is similar, a hit of honey sweetness followed by resiny hops, along with notes of peach and orange. Plenty of malt, but the hop bitterness persists through the finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation, oily mouthfeel. Didnt meld well for me; a good, but not great DIPA.

AWISLguy (2863) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 28, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine in Jensen Beach - saving a bit yet, but had inspiration from reading article from the brewer, thanks bro! Pours Poured an orangey yellow with an off white head. Almost no lacing. Aroma has citrus and pine. And more citrus and pine. A bit of bubblegum later. Taste is of citrus and pine, heavy resin, and some sweeter caramelly malts in the solid backbone. Medium bodied and sticky. Light alcohol presence. Finishes more to the bitter side of bittersweet. This is not a top 10 DIPA, or even close to it, but it is solid and tasty, and likely this breweries best offering.
