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

muzzlehatch (4959) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 31, 2008
Draught goblet (12 oz?) at American Flatbread in Burlington, VT (May 2008). Bright, oily translucent gold with a lasting bit of bright white foam and nice lacing....fresh, sweet aroma: honey, resinous hops, very inviting with no alcoholic harshness...body is sweet, juicy, lightly syrupy, with floral and faintly bitter notes...dry, clean, slightly mineralic-salty finish, verging on crisp with the syrupy thickness almost entirely washed away....nicely done, one of the best beers I’ve had from Brooklyn.

Bouteille de 35,5cl. Couleur orange profond, trouble, mousse moyenne de belle tenue. Des arômes d’ agrumes et de fruits exotiques, alcool. Beaucoup de corps et de longueur, carbonnation moyenne. Trouvée à Cash Flandres artois - Ferrin.

imdownthepub (14554) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2017
Bottled, 355ml from Beermerchants of Kent. Clear amber with white head. I found quite an odd, farmy aroma in this, just a touch off-putting. The beer itself was clean and fresh, fruity malts, then fruity, tropical hop notes. There is an earthy character to this late on. Pretty reasonable.

CH-303 (2244) - Fribourg, SWITZERLAND - APR 3, 2017
Appearance: Slightly hazy, pale orange golden. Some fizzy white head.
Aroma: Light fruits followed by hops.
Taste: Clear hops, pine, light fruits. Slight perfume. Lingering bitterness. Pretty good balance.
Bought: Halle aux Boissons (Matran), 355 ml, CHF 2.75

Fruity aroma. Fruity and slightly bitter taste. Good as Bitterness fills the upper part of the mouth en long while. Really good beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

maledictum (782) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - FEB 27, 2017
Spicy hop aromas are a bit one-dimensional. This beer is candy sweet while also packing a bitter, abrupt finish. An initial hop bite is followed by a hoppy/caramelly center. With little finish, this is a short beer with a unique palate.

neur0 (1275) - Hannover, GERMANY - JAN 19, 2017
(Flasche) Es hat eine orange Farbe, ist filtriert mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist sehr süß, mit Honig, fruchtig und Melone. Der Geschmack ist süßlich, etwas Bitter und mit etwas grün.

m.mahu (191) - Iasi, ROMANIA - DEC 28, 2016
Bottle. Pours hazy golden, with little head. Tastea pine, citrus, caramel. Very hoppy and dank. I like it.

VueltaBirrista (104) - Murcia, SPAIN - NOV 4, 2016
De color meloso, estamos ante una cerveza muy cremosa, espumosa y con 8,4 % ABV al que hay que respetar si no te quieres llevar ningún sobresalto. Todos y cada uno de los elementos empleados aporta su granito de arena, para dar como resultado una cerveza poderosa y rotunda, que no deja indiferente. En su aroma predominan los frutos cítricos como limón, pomelo, incluso naranja y también percibo mucho pino. En boca también están muy presentes las frutas ácidas como cítricos, piña o kiwi y las maltas suavizando todo el conjunto, todo como muy bien recogidito, sin dejar nada al azar. Además, para tratarse de una Doble IPA, su amargor resulta mas bien contenido.

Pilsnertest (296) - SWEDEN - OCT 14, 2016
Bottle @ Ballbreaker. Pours cloudy and with almost no head. Citrus, metal, pine and grapefruit. Misses some sweetness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bozo_skeleton (1157) - Grenoble, FRANCE - SEP 30, 2016
Blonde légèrement cuivrée, belle carbo, petit collet persistant. Aromes bien marqués sur le résineux, agrumes et caramel. Amertumes sèches sur une finale resineuse
