No no no. This is not an American Double, Imperial IPA (hopefully that will be corrected). This is an American Double Pale Ale. Well done and genre defining, I may add.
What an interesting ale. It comes out, full and strong with a pale ale aroma. It definitely looks a bit IPA in the glass, and the aftertaste (burp) is a big hoppy IPA, but the taste is pure pale ale. That's what makes this beer worth drinking and man, I can drink as much of the growler as I like and finish the rest tomorrow, so I am really all set with this exceptional beer.
That was more like social networking than a review! Gotta go drink some Blast. Bye.

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!
