Brooklyn Blast is a fantastic and unique DIPA. It's got a huge tropical fruit and citrus blast with a slightly grainy caramel malt base that reminds me of an APA. It's actually rather unique for the style because of the different malt base, but the huge hop hit won't let anyone down. A fantastic beer.

2013, poured from a growler to a stemmed Hill Farmstead tulip glass within 20 minutes of filling the growler @ my local beverage shop.

A- Gorgeous, stunning amber color. Intense but remarkably clear, like a gemstone. Beautiful mild white foam head, perhaps a cm or 2 from a full pour. Some very luscious lacing. This is one of the best looking amber pale ales I have ever seen.

O- Citrus and fresh pine. Initially bring a big grapefruit character but settles quickly to a mild lemon aroma. Very pleasant, but all in all the weak point in this beer.

T- Fresh hops, pine, grapefruit, orange, lemon. A wonderful hope profile; reminds me of a VT style IPA with only a delicate malt backbone. Hides the 9% very well.

M- Nicely carbonated; resinous but light on the tongue. This beer drinks like a rich pale ale and not a 9% hop monster. Very enjoyable.

O- An outstanding fresh DIPA. It's a wonderful raw citrus experience. The minimalist malt profile allows the hops to really shine. This beer really reminds me of Hill Farmstead's Legitimacy IPA, which was one of my favorite HF beers.

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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Straight pour from a 32oz screw-top growler to a Belgian Independence Day tulip; filled the same day at the Party Source beer store in Syracuse, NY.

Appearance (4.25): Two solid fingers of bone-white, extremely tight head forms on top of a crystal-clear, orange-golden body. It shows only moderate retention, but leaves some really fantastic collars and webs of lace with broad swaths marking each point the beer sat, and streamers of lace trailing down to the next. Also, there’s a steady stream of very fine bubbles making their way to the surface the entire time. Very good-looking beer.

Smell (4.5): This has a wonderful array of scents: some juicy pineapple fruitiness, some resinous, dank tones, some very subtle noble-type hop spiciness underneath, some herbal qualities like lavender and lemon verbena, and some sweet, oily, candied orange peel kinda stuff happening here. Great hop character in the nose.

Taste (4.25): Definitely one of those (D)IPAs with very little bitterness and all kinds of hop flavor: some more of that spicy-type hop character blends with some resinous, weedy tones for a slightly skunky finish, while some light, citrusy, floral tones play out on top of everything. There’s some moderately sweet, sugary malt underneath, like sugar cookies topped with lemon zest icing. Very pale in flavor, almost nothing toasted, roasted, or caramel about it. Still, there’s a good citrus zest bitterness on the mid-palate that helps it to finish dry, with only a hint of alcohol. Where the hell is the ABV? More than anything, this acts as a vehicle for some sweet, floral hop character with a modestly resinous core.

Mouthfeel (4.0): Relatively subdued carbonation in the feel, with a soft foaming action and only a slight tingle. Doesn’t quite feel like a cask beer, but it’s still pretty good. The body is medium-weight, maybe a little thicker, and finishes somewhat dry, probably thanks to the ABV (it’s almost weird how well-hidden it is) and some hop oils.

Overall (4.25): Personally, I always enjoy this beer. It’s one of those (D)IPAs that prefers not to show its teeth, hiding any alcohol and hop load surprisingly well. I’d be very curious to see a calculation of the theoretical IBUs on this beer, because it’s very hoppy but hardly bitter at all. Always psyched to see Blast! on tap, because it’s always a winner.

64 oz growler filled at Food Cellar & Co. in Long Island City, NY.

Gold to amber in color and clear with a moderate white head that leaves a ring clinging to the edges of the glass and a thin film on the surface. Sparse lacing on the glass. Soft carbonation but the head is easily revitalized with a few swirls of the glass.

Tons of pine in the aroma with some alcohol present. Biscuit and hay from the malt. Citrus comes through in the flavor but the alcohol is still noticeable and make it a bit "hot" on the tongue. Medium bodied and surprisingly drinkable given its ABV.

Poured from a growler from Joe Canal's Iselin into my Brooklyn Nonic Pint Glass

Appearance: this pours a beautiful light orange/ burnt yellow with a very nice inch high head, that does dissipate and leaves some lacing. The head persists on top of the beer throughout the session. The lacing is just beautiful. The color has a hazy character to it.

Smell: I love DIPAs and the aroma from this just consumes me and makes me weak in the knees. A beautiful hoppy aroma that has a nice floral and citrusy front, but a deep resiny aroma exits underneath and is just so pleasant. I want to keep my nose in my glass, beautiful.

Taste: This is oh so tasty. The floral and citrusy aroma follow this into the taste, and create a wonderful beer. This is a very smooth beer, and I am want to find the alcohol in this. If I had not known the ABV level, I would have suspected 6.5%. This is so balanced in the hop resin and the lightness of the malt.

Mouthfeel: a really tight carbonation with a very nice resiny feel, and a really good hoppy back taste. So incredibly silky smooth

Overall: If you can find this, do so. It is an incredible DIPA. This has a great aroma, great mouthfeel and great taste. I find nothing wrong with this beer. I am only sad that the growler is empty. I am making a special trip to refill before this disappears. Brooklyn, please keep producing this!

3.65/5  rDev -9.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a light amber in color with two fingers of white head. The majority of the head does not linger for very long but a small cap of foam remains throughout.

S: Fruity, earthy, and spicy hops. Along with a hint of alcohol which contributes to the spiciness. They definitely put a lot of different hops in this beer.

T: Quite Sweet, almost too sweet. A healthy amount of hop flavor but not enough bitterness to balance out the sweetness. The hop flavors are similar to the nose, perhaps a bit more spicy than earthy though.

M: My favorite part of this beer is the mouthfeel. I would not guess that this was 8% abv. It is smooth and the flavor does not stick around in your mouth for very long.

O: I don't know what to think about this beer, its obviously hop bursted with a ton of hops because it has a lot of hop flavors and aromas but its just too far on the sweet side for my liking..

64oz growler. Fresh filled from Premier Gourmet in Buffalo NY

A- Crystal clear dark copper pour with a half finger white head and decent lacing.

S- Pungent floral hops, slight pine with some citrus. Sweet malt backing.

T- Musty floral hops with some pine and citrus finish. Juicy up front, dry and bitter in the middle finishes slightly sweet. As it warms further the hops really brighten and shine through. Mandarin oranges, slight grapefruit and a little lemon rind.

M- Light bodied, good carbonation.

O- It is good, I don't find the wow with this. It was a great price IMO ($16.99 for 64oz) and I will enjoy finishing this. But it just isn't as spectacular as the ratings show.

Edit...
Beginning of second glass the beer had warmed to the point where everything had opened up and I was enjoying it more and more.

The fresh growler pours a crystal clear dark amber beer with thin, yet resilient white head. The nose is a light and malty, but not a lot of hop character for a DIPA. Very floral nose thats only better when it warms. The taste is just as malty with a slight bitterness on the back end. Overall this beer should definitely be listed as a pale and not a double. I would probably not try this beer again, but it was decent.

4.43/5  rDev +9.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Poured from the growler into a Duvel tulip. Body is golden-honey in color with no real head.

S: Hoppy (citrusy) and vibrant. Not terribly strong in the nose, but it has a solid citrus smell (grapefruit, lemon and even orange peel) that's very nice.

T: Mild bready/cookie dough malt underneath the hops, which dominate: apricot and citrus, with a touch of tropical fruit. The hop profile makes it seem a bit lighter than your typical DIPA (the relatively low ABV of 8% probably helps as well). Finishes with a touch of spice that's more noticed as it warms.

M: Medium in heft, a tad bit flat.

O: Good stuff. A relatively easy-drinking DIPA that's nice and bright. Call it a "summer DIPA."

A - Pours clear golden color with a tall white head. Typical low carbonation from my Whole Foods, but head still lasted awhile and left some lacing.

S - Hop dominated with some citrus, pine, and flowers.

T - The hops are upfront and a bit strange. The floral hops really come through along with a good bit of malt sweetness. Gives it a strange flavor profile, not bad, but not great.

M - A little heavy and coating, the alcohol helps but I think a bit drier would be nice.

O - Glad I got it, but not my favorite IIPA.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A- Pours a sweet, clear orange blossom honey hue into my DFH glass. A three finger agressive head stands tall. Leaves a ton of sticky sweet lacing as it fades away.

S- Grapefruit, ripe nectarines, hints of caramel covered pineapple and pine sap. Orange blossom honey sweetness, nice malt balance shines thru. Nice fresh cut grass and floral notes.

T- Over ripe peaches, orange zest, grapefruit, pineapple and honey. Nice fresh grassiness, thyme, basil and wildflowers. Very nice caramel notes without being overly sweet. Really well done and extremely well balanced.

M- A touch on the thick side, but the bitter hop punch really evens things out. Nice fresh mint/basil/herb/lemon/honey finish. Decent carbonation and the alcohol comes thru just enough.

O- Without a doubt the best IIPA I've ever had from Brooklyn. It's too bad that they don't bottle this just yet, because this would definately be in my regular rotation. Try it if you have the chance!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a growler I got from the Ithaca Coffee Company into a Dogfish Head Signature glass.

A: Golden color with amber hues. Crystal clear. Aggressive growler pour leads to a 2 finger fluffy, rocky white head that is sticky and fades to thick consistent lacing.

S: Resiny hoppy front followed by lots of fruit and a strong malty back end. Picking up a nifty bready yeast smell in this one too that makes it a unique spin on the traditional IIPA.

T: Follows the nose but the malt profile takes over in the taste and really tosses a monkey wrench into what is a pretty nice tasting beer. It feels just a touch unbalanced, yet it's a very full flavored hoppy beer. I just wish the malt would back down a touch.

M: Nice creamy mouth coating with the hop oils drawing my cheeks in. Perfect carbonation.

O: A nice IIPA. I'm glad I tried and if this were readily available, I'd readily drink it.

Presentation: Poured into a pint glass from a growler purchased at Green's off Piney Grove!

A: Slightly hazy amber/gold. Nice white, fluffy head with moderate lacing.

S: Hops, heavy pine, and mild spiciness.

T&M: Some sweetness and spiciness up front. Then the hops pop in all the way through. Piney, piney, piney. Medium bodied and finishes dry.

This stuff is awesome. Very similar to Gubna or Lenny's R.I.P.A., but much more drinkable due to the lower abv and lighter body. Blast is not quite as thick as most DIPA's, probably fewer malts. This almost has a slight spicy and peppery flavor like a good pilsner. Excellent !!! Definitely will be looking for this again in the future.

So I had this at the Brewvival at the end of February and despite my drunkenness immediately realized this was the greatest beer at the festival (and I had several, from top breweries, which I never considered Brooklyn one of). I remembered it as a tropical fruit like citrus hop bomb!

Ok, ok, I've had this twice since (once on tap, freshness unknown, and now the bottle I drink from as we speak, freshness date is August 2014.

A - Pours a nice clear copper with a finger of off white head with nice retention and nice lacing. Looks fairly light but not watery by any means

S - Smells of citrusy fruits like grapefruit, lemon and orange but also sweet tropical fruits. Hoppy sweet fruit smells. Call me crazy, but i get strawberry like aromas here.

T - Minimally piney for the initial taste/split second then citrusy and sweet (i can only describe as tropical, passion fruit/pinapple/lemon and that damn strawberry again) hop flavor. Strawberry/blackberry seed type flavors at the finish, rather dry and tons of sweet fruit lingers.

M - Medium body, well carbonated, a breeze at 8%+

O - Not the holy grail i experienced at brewvival but still some fantastic sweet fruit/citrus bomb. Lots of lemon, and i still cant get over the strawberry characteristics - I know, i must be the only one.

Stopped by Superstar Huntington and there was a Brooklyn tasting happening. Sampled a few and was pretty blown away by Blast so I had no choice but to pick up a growler.

a - through the growler a nice deep transparent orange hue. Popped it open and filled my Captain Lawrence taster tulip. Color settled a bit darker and there was visible even carbonation and a nice thin IPA head. Left some slick lacing on the glass.

s - very nicely balanced hop smell. Good malt presence, hint of sweetness...not very sticky and pine cone like, but very nice.

t - good medley of hops and bitterness...some pepper as well. quite tasty and the standout from the tasting that I just had to bring a sample of it home to enjoy. nice sweetness to even things out.

m - a bit watery/light in the body, bitter aftertaste, but not too much so. ABV is extremely well hidden for a double. lively carbonation.

o - really great IIPA. extremely enjoyable, very easy to drink, not a hop bomb. this one should be bottled.

i had this on tap at the Blind Tiger a couple of weeks ago and really enjoyed it -
i'm working on a growler i just picked up at Yorktown beer of their newly installed fill station-
pours a nice amber/orange and almost clear with a 1 1/2 finger head that has devolved into a ring around the edges with spotty lacing -
smells of fresh resin-y hops up front with a bit of sweet stuff
tastes follows the nose with a citrus, pine hop bite balanced out by a sweet malt and caramel finish -
a little sticky on the palate, in a good way
drinkability is good, but watch out, i was a little brooklyn blasted when i left the blind tiger!

Brooklyn: BLAST Double India Pale Ale (Growler filled at Bierkraft 05/28/10) (Tasted 06/02/10)
64 oz. growler, poured into a cervoise goblet.

Appearance: Brilliantly clear golden color with a petite, flat head of off-white bubbles, decent retention, decent lacing.
Odor: Bouquet of citrus aromas, orange, tangerine and rich white grapefruit, floral background, hints of bread. Not as resinous or intense as expected, that is not to say there is something missing, it is still very full and pleasant.
Consistency: Medium end of light bodied, with a firm carbonation that massages the palate and promotes a cracker-y, dry malt-driven feel underneath the hops.
Flavor: Oh hey, balance, neat-o. Even waves of dry Saltine cracker malt flavor and citrus hop flavor running from bitter orange rind to sweet grapefruit, exist on a relatively even playing field, hops only a few steps higher than the malt. Bitterness is firm, but by no means obnoxious or coarse. Hops vanquish malt, leaving a very light coating of bitter hop resin on the tongue after the dry finish.

Some folks might say that the balanced nature of this beer is off-style. I am not one of those people. Brooklyn BLAST is the epitome of a drinkable DIPA, hop flavor forward, with a mild, slightly overbalancing bitterness. I would love to see this come out once a year in bottles!

Pours a clear toasted straw color with a pillowy off-white head that quickly disipates into a light cap. The aroma is citrusy with grapefruit forefront. There are some hints of malty sweetness but nothing cloying. The taste is big on grapefruit with some other citrus flavors. There is also some asprin like bitterness towards the backend but this is very light. The malt is there to balance out the hops but does add some honey like sweetness. Nice hop aromas but nothing crazy for a DIPA. The malt sweetness is in nice balance, nothing cloying at all. A sturdy feel with tingly carbonation, very well balanced, very drinkable. Not the most hop crazy DIPA out there, not even close really but what you have is a very drinkable beer. The ABV is well hidden.

A: Very nice golden color. perfectly clear, with a small white head when poured. Since there was not much head there wasnt really any lacing, but the color of this one was perfect

S: Tropical fruit up front with mango papaya and peach notes followed by a nice bitter piney and grapfruit note. Some sugary sweetness is also present in the nose.

T: A bit more sweetness comes through than i like in my DIPAs, but there is still a very pleasant citrus hoppiness going on that is very enjoyable.

M: Very smooth, with no real harshness to speak of. I liked how the body was on the lighter side but a bit more creaminess would have been nice

M: Nice easy drinking DIPA. Hop forward but not insanely so making this very easy to quaff

32 ounce growler filled @ DeCiccos in NY. $8.99.

A- Pale pale golden yellow, absolutely pristine white head, moderate lacing.

S- Intense pine hops.. really strong.

T- Insane bitterness. I haven't had a DIPA that has been this bitter in a while. Intense octane/resiny hop note as well. There's a fruity mango note that comes out afterwards. Very good. Really bitter... all those reviews that call this balanced make me scratch my head. This is a tongue-smasher.

M- A bit thin, light-bodied, and not much malt, which is kind of nice considering the hops. A real showcase. Not what I usually go for, but it works.

D- 32oz no problem. A real surprise from Brooklyn- if you can find it on tap it's a nice treat.

Pours from the growler a hazy golden color with a shiny white hat of head. Small bubbles and great retention.
Very floral and citrusy scents, a delicate hop aroma, very nice.
The hop taste is a bit understated for the strength of the malt, but very nice hop profile.
Crisp and refreshing with decent carbonation and a big body.
This beer goes down way too easy for 8 percent. I could get in trouble with this...a growler is such a big serving.
