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 that’s beautifully hoppy, strangely quaffable and oddly compelling. Minerally hop bitterness is followed by a shock wave of flavor and aroma. You won’t 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

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 Julio’s Liquors Westborough, MA.

Dorwart (2549) - 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.

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

Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm when Oliwer Garret was there. Lasting off white head and litle clowdy appearance. Big but balanced bitterness. Big lemon hop taste (could be Citra hops). Big body that balance the bitterness.Very enoyable.
