Brooklyn Brewing’s Blast will become a year round offering soon. Blast is a hoppy imperial IPA released over a year ago in the brewery’s Brewmaster’s Reserve Series.
The first in a line of Brewmaster’s “Special Reserve” beers, BLAST! Is a riotous celebration of hops. Here in Brooklyn, we’re half-way between the hop country of Yakima Valley, Washington and the hop country of Kent in England. So we use the bright citrusy American hops to bring the noise and earthy English hops to build the foundation of a hop monster brandishing five pounds of hops per barrel with considerable finesse. The varieties are half American, half English and the malts bring solidity, balance and beautiful flavors to a golden beer that’s ludicrously hoppy, strangely quaffable and oddly compelling. You won’t even know what hit you.
