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

iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - JUN 1, 2011
Cask @ Blind Tiger. Hazy amber with a small off-white head, faded to a thick film and lasted the duration. Spicy orange herbal hop nose followed by some sweet malts and alcohol heat. Smells a little fresher than the flavor. Flavor has orange hops dominating with some spicy earth and dry hopped notes, light toast and caramel sweetness. Finishes earthy and semi-dry with bitterness peaking at a 4, some alcohol noted. Lots of earth. Low carbonation with a medium body. Not bad, but nothing stands out. And far too earthy.

wedgie9 (2702) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 29, 2012
Tasted in October 2011 from a corked and caged bottle that was brought to Nashville for a beer dinner. Pours cloudy yellow-orange with an average white head that leaves a thin collar of lace. The nose is intense citrus hops with some resin, grapefruit, bread and cereal malt. The flavor is lightly sweet with the same resin and grapefruit hops, along with the cereal and bread. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long resin, citrus, and light malt finish.

3.8
Block (2702) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUL 7, 2014
A nice gold pour with a thin white head. Aroma is hoppy, bitter, slightly floral. Flavor is robust with a great hop flavor followed by a sweet and malty finish. The alcohol is masked extremely well and this beer is very sessionable.
