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

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 16, 2009
Hazed yellow, firm and tight off-white suds. Nose of fresh hops, grapefruit, crystalized hop buds, maybe even a touch of unripe mango. Firm hoppy flavor profile, definitely damn straight grapefruit and dry...maybe even some other fruits underneath...overall though, nicely dry and super hoppy. I dig.

Pours a three-fingered white head that quickly fades leaving traces of lace. Light hazy amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Pine hop nose and flavor is pine hops and some caramel. Higher ABV is hidden. $3.69 for a 12oz bottle from Julios Liquors Westborough, MA.

lb4lb (2587) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 25, 2010
UPDATED: APR 9, 2014 Pretty good DIPA. tap at Draughthouse 42nd anniversary. Hoppy, but not over the top. solid. re-rate Pretty orange color, rich looking with nice head. Smell is pine and caramel and orange like hops. taste is hoppy and bitter with orange and pine and some noticeable alcohol while not bad, detracts from drinkability. Didnt realize Id had this already. Probably wont get it again, but it is decent despite the alcohol presence being noticeable.

Dorwart (2573) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Thin offwhite head of fine bubbles. Nice citrusy aroma with mangos, pineapple, light grainy malts and some lime. Color is a nice dark orange. Flavor has lots of caramel malts, light piney hops, some white pepper and grapefruit pith. Zippy and fizzy mouthfeel with a light alcohol presence. Finishes dry and puckering with lingering grapefruit. A decent IIPA.
