Had this beer last Friday at the Brooklyn brewery. It was one of their beers that they have during their Friday night "tasting" night.
I wasn't sure what I was going to get when I saw the "Blast" written on the wooden sign hanging above the bar, but I figured that anything that was a blast, couldn't be half bad.
The beer came in a very fancy (kidding) clear plastic cup. Had a solid aroma of hops, but not what you would expect from a double IPA. Considering the views of Garrett Oliver, it's actually not surprising that this DIPA wasn't as fragrent as some of the offerings from West Coast breweries such as Stone or Rogue.
The taste of the beer was right along with with smell, but the delicate hop flavors definitly came through. There was just a slight hint of bitterness, but it was welcomed and quite pleasent.
The overall drinability of their beer is high as the alcohol is well hidden, and the flavors aren't overblown. I enjoyed this beer and would order it again if given the chance, especially at the Brewery where it's only $3 for a 16oz glass... whew... talk about tippsy.

Bottle from Gary's
Pours a slightly hazy deep straw color with a decent sized creamy bubbly white head that slowly dissipates. Aromas of orange, earth. pine, and resin with a solid light sweet sugary maltiness to back it up. The flavor is quite sweet like the aroma suggested with sweet sugar covered oranges and apricots. The earthy pine is less prevalent in the flavor as is the bitterness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Its got some nice flavors and I'm guessing most of the fruit flavors might be hop derived. Needs more attenuation and more bitterness.

This reveiw is based on a draft enjoyed on my birthday at Max's in Baltimore. It has an average appearance: light amber body crowned by a thin head. It offers a caramel nose and a mildy sweet molasses bite with a quick hoppy finish at the end.
Nice balance with moderate carbonation - and suprisingly smooth for a beer of this caliber. Sometime next year I gotta get up to Brooklyn and visit this place, one of America's finest craft breweries. Nuff said. Forgeddaboutit!
