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
18.8°

Pours a clear amber with very little head. Nose is hopped, but I wouldn’t say overly powerful. Flavor is hopped,yes. You get the pine tones and that syrup like flavor quality to it. But is stays smooth and even and never goes over the line. Feel is thick on liquid and good on the bubble. Overall a verysmooth DIPA and well worth trying. If you want smooth and even and well crafted, this is more your style.

I love this beer. Bought a "growler" of this last night, and been drinking it tonight. Nearly gone. 9% ABV? Oh yeah!!!

- schöne gold-orangene Farbe mit leichter Schaumbildung - fruchtig-blumiges Aroma - perfekte Kohlensäuredosierung - ausgewogener Geschmack - die Bitternis drängt sich im Gegensatz zu anderen Double IPAs nicht so sehr in den Vordergrund - ebenso unbemerkt bleibt geschmacklich der höhere Alkoholgehalt - der Abgang hinterlässt eine spritzig fruchtig-bittere Note Fazit: Unfassbar gut und das auch noch zu einem annehmbaren Preis

On tap. Damn near perfect. Nice piney hop aroma with some tangerine sweetness. Although high abv, can't really notice the alcohol. Very well done ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Eyedrinkale (3214) - Astoria, New York, USA - SEP 19, 2006
On tap @ HDG. Another masterpiece by Mr Oliver. Orange/amber color with a lasting white head. Aroma is both apple and caramel with a piney nose. Taste is perfectly balanced between the apricots and peached and the sweet, chewy hops. Call this an IIPA or American Strong it doesn’t matter. This beer is World Class and has a GABF medal written all over it.
