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

Very nice pine aroma. Taste is a little intense but balanced and a little juicy.

De color meloso, estamos ante una cerveza muy cremosa, espumosa y con 8,4 % ABV al que hay que respetar si no te quieres llevar ningn sobresalto. Todos y cada uno de los elementos empleados aporta su granito de arena, para dar como resultado una cerveza poderosa y rotunda, que no deja indiferente. En su aroma predominan los frutos ctricos como limn, pomelo, incluso naranja y tambin percibo mucho pino. En boca tambin estn muy presentes las frutas cidas como ctricos, pia o kiwi y las maltas suavizando todo el conjunto, todo como muy bien recogidito, sin dejar nada al azar. Adems, para tratarse de una Doble IPA, su amargor resulta mas bien contenido.

La brasserie Brooklyn nous habitue de trs bons produits, et celui-ci ne droge pas la rgle. Belle couleur or/orange lgrement trouble, carbonatation moyenne avec une mousse fine. Au nez aucun doute, nous avons ici une double IPA. On sent trs nettement les agrumes, en particulier le pamplemousse et le citron vert, et on dcle aussi des notes de pin et de fleurs. Lalcool est moyennement prsent au nez. En bouche, on retrouve ces parfums dagrumes mais aussi lamertume des cpres, lalcool est assez neutre malgr les 8.4%, et cette bire est relativement sucre ce qui est presque dommageable pour une IPA. Lamertume est longue, elle colle bien au palet, le got global est trs droit, la finale trs sche, malgr une texture assez souple et huileuse. Une bire assez simple en fait, avec des gots et des saveurs trs distincts, sans vraiment de complexit. Une bonne double IPA qui ne va pas non plus nous renverser.

Blueshawk (451) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2016
- schne gold-orangene Farbe mit leichter Schaumbildung - fruchtig-blumiges Aroma - perfekte Kohlensuredosierung - ausgewogener Geschmack - die Bitternis drngt sich im Gegensatz zu anderen Double IPAs nicht so sehr in den Vordergrund - ebenso unbemerkt bleibt geschmacklich der hhere Alkoholgehalt - der Abgang hinterlsst eine spritzig fruchtig-bittere Note Fazit: Unfassbar gut und das auch noch zu einem annehmbaren Preis

Dimmigt halmgul med tunt vitt skum. Doftar lite citrus och kda. Smaken angenmt besk, halm och malt. Eftersmaken lng med fin humlebeska. Mkt god fr en DIPA.

TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2016
Bottle. Aroma is way bigger than the flavour. The aroma is complex, with every non-New Zealand hop flavour being accounted for. The flavour is interesting, with stuff like tobacco and medicine, and pot, but it doesn't match up to the aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
