31 October 2014

BLAST! is Brooklyn's East Coast answer to "those palate-obliterating West Coast IPAs" offering a balancing act of piney and fruity notes with a sturdy malt foundation.

When you brew in New York - roughly halfway between the hop fields of the US Pacific Northwest and those of Kent here in England - it might seem logical to keep everything in harmonious balance and use the harvest from both regions. In BLAST!, Brooklyn use eleven* (yes, eleven!) varieties starting with earthy English hops to build a foundation and bright, citrusy American hops to bring the noise. All together, they combine in this big, bold yet remarkably well-balanced IPA.

Maris Otter and German Pilsner malts lends balance and bready flavours to brace up a beer that’s beautifully balanced, hoppy, strangely quaffable and oddly compelling.

It's big. It's bold, It's Brooklyn!
