BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brooklyn Brewery
New York, United States
brooklynbrewery.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.40%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / 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.

Brought back from my visit to NYC earlier this year. Pours a hazy amber colour with a small white head. Aromas of citrus, honey & hops. Tastes of citrus, pine, passion fruit, honey and a slightly sweet malt with an almond touch as well as some flora & bread with a nice sharp citrus bitterness at the end. Throughout the high alcohol is well hidden. A bottle I'd very happily have a second off, and my favourite so far from Brooklyn.

On tap at TGI Fridays. Pours a hazy, golden hue with minimal frothing. Moderate pine nuances on the nose and tongue. Easily drinkable and quite thirst quenching. Subtle hints of grapefruit and lemon zest. Not bad.

Very nice hop flavor profile. Higher ABV but not noticeable. Too bad it comes in 4 packs at $10 instead of 6 packs. Overall a nice beer.

This is a solid, hoppy IPA. It goes down smooth with plenty of flavor. Definitely a beer you want to take your time with as the consistency is thick but enjoyable.
