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

[email protected]leary Nykping. Hazy golden color with lacing white head. Aroma has tropical fruits, apricot, citrus. Taste is malty with quite long bitter aftertaste. Flavors of apricot, grape, pine, spices and malt. Not the bitterest imperial IPA but tasty one still.

Pours hazy pale golden with a medium white head that quickly disapears. Nose is tropical fruits and citrus. Aromas are tropical fruits and citrus, caramel, with a alcoholic note. Average/low carbonation, with a medium body. Long bitter and fruity finish. A rather well-done imperial IPA.

cobaink2 (640) - seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 20, 2016
Bottle from whole foods nyc. Orange and muted passionfruit is what I got. A little pepper and slightly sugary. The difference with this is the otter Maris malt which gives this mor of a Pilsner backbone. Not bad.

thegreenrooster (4328) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Pour is a orange juice lookalike with a small white head. Aroma is full of mango, peach and pineapple. So fruity and fresh. Flavor is again a super fresh tropical fruit but then you also get thee maris otter malt which gives the beer a bready and earthy richness. All those hop varieties really make this beer. So fruity, a bit minty and not bitter at all. This was a awesome beer and those fruity hops are outstanding.
