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

Jado (798) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - DEC 12, 2015
355 ml bottle. Hazy golden body capped by a thin white head that subsides to a collar. Aromas of crusty bread, stewed apricots, flowers, lemon, spice and a bit of hot alcohol. Taste has a sharp lemon and pine bitterness up front before some fruity notes of stonefruit emerge along with citrus and pepper. Crisply bitter citrus finish.

ciocanelu (2051) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - DEC 6, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Hazy yellow color with almost no head. Aroma has just some dank hops but nothing much going on. Taste is also hoppy, kind of earthy, also some alcohol. Body is medium with crisp carbonation. Nothing much going on with this beer.

On tap at Store House in New York. Flavorful, but leaves an aftertaste that just doesn't do it for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared at the Ale House, Chelmsford. Pours a cloudy amber colour with a small white head. Aroma of hop, caramel, bread and sweet malt. Medium sweetness, bitterness comes through. Very drinkable but not got the wow factor this style can deliver.
