The Brü Revü – Brooklyn Blast!

Brooklyn Blast! mixes earthy English hops with bright citrusy American hops to create a different take on a Double IPA.  British Maris Otter and German Pilsner malts also give this brew a unique flavor profile from all the Double IPAs around.  The beer poured a clear golden amber with a significant white head.  The nose leans more on the American hops with a dank citrusy aroma with just a hint of the grassy undertones.   The taste starts with a grassy hops that immediately heads into the citrus tropical hops and ends with a piney resinous finish.  It’s quite a Blast of flavors that all seem to complement each other.  The bready malt body exerts itself more on the finish and the German Pilsner and British Maris Otter malts begin to shine.  The Blast is a well done Double IPA that superbly intermingles the traditional English hops and new American varieties to great success.  Cheers, and have a Blast!
