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

sloth (2936) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUN 6, 2014
Thin, off white head thats short lived, spotty lace. Murky, blond colored body. Nose is a hint resiny with juicy citrus notes. Body is med/full with a soft carbonation, lil oily, lil resiny and grainy. Citrus greets you with a dry maltiness backing it up. Tame grapefruit notes, light pine and floral notes, grainy malts, dry. Tame finish with a lil warmth and an equally tame bite. Better than exxpected though. Bottle from statelineliquors.

Copper hazy, white head. Smell of herbal tea, spices, citrus zests. Heavy sweet, herbal, spicy, quite oily texture. Medium bitter finish, herbal and green sap presence. Quite nice dipa.

glennmastrange (2919) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUN 20, 2009
Tap. Moderate malt aroma of roasted, heavy hop smells of pine, citrus peel and herbs, light soap for the yeast, and hints of date and alcohol. Head is frothy/fizzy, white, with good sticky lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is slightly hazy amber/orange. Flavor starts moderately sweet and acidic, then the long finish is moderately acidic and heavily bitter. Palate is medium, oily with a lively carbonation and a moderately alcoholic finish. The flavor is just okay, but the hop profile is superb in the aroma of this DIPA.

cards04 (2917) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 24, 2014
An excellent double IPA. Pours a nice peachy color with fizzy white head. Great tropical fruit nose. Then bready malts. Flavors are deceptively smooth for the high abv. Citrus and mango flavors with a seamless hoppy finish. Awesome.

DCLawyer (2914) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - SEP 7, 2015
Backlog. Bottle sample. Hazy orange/gold with moderate white head. Pine and floral hops, bittersweet malt. Bit messy, doesn’t stand out.

bulldogops (2907) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 27, 2013
1 oz sample at Beer Revolution, courtesy of plunkie. Consensus winner at our table (session 1), namely due to the orange/tangerine/meyer lemon sweetness. Clear golden pour with a bubbly white foam, spotty lacing. Nose is tangerine, pineapple, essentially the tropics in a blender. Mouthfeel crisp, mild alcohol warmth, low-medium carbonation. Taste is sweet orangey/meyer lemony notes with the spicy tang and hoppy bite. Unreal that this is 9%, not devoid of Imperial character however. Shwanky.

UDBeernut (2883) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Golden hue with abundant off white head, decent amount of lacing. Nose and mouth of resin, pine, citrus held together by an ample malt and caramel body. Body is full but abrupt on finish.

3.6
troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - JUN 18, 2007
(Tap @ Brooklyn Brewery) Described by the tour guide as a triple IPA. Pours a shade of orange with a dense white head. Strong aroma of pine and citrus hops. Taste is similar, with a sweet malty character that is slightly cloying. This throws off the balance a bit. A good beer, but could have been a little less sweet. Still has a decent hoppiness that imparts a long, bitter finish.

3.3
drsordr (2861) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Draft sample. Nose clean floral and pine hop. Initial some fruit and resin. Nice mid palate bitterness. Some faint malty finish

3.8
gripweed57 (2856) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Hazy amber orange color. Foamy white head. Fresh citrus hop aroma. Toasted malt flavor lends a rich caramel backbone. Big resiny hops in mid taste and finish. Complex, spicy and earthy. Warming alcohol in finish. Very good.
