An excellent big hop IPA. Dark orange color with a modest head. Smells of citrus / pine. Taste is loaded with malt and hops. Two thumbs up!

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2013 12 oz. from Downtown Wine & Spirits. Pours orange with a thick white head and dense lacing. The aroma is sharply hoppy and resinous. It?s pine forward with citrus notes secondary. The palate is viscous, almost feels like a double IPA in the mouth. Bitterness is long and residual with notes of grass, herbs, and just a little melon. Good solid IPA.

Cloudy dark orange body that throws up a tall off-white head.
Hop aroma of grapefruit and pine resin.
Solidly bitter flavor profile. The malt sweetness is there in a support role, but the hop bitterness has this well checked.
Bravo for Blackstone. The best beer I’ve had from them.

West coast IPA with cascade, centennial, and simcoe hops. Citrus on the front and piney on the finish. Tastes crisp, sweet, and quite bitter.

This is a great IPA with nice citrus and resiny hop flavors with a nice sweet, crisp malt backbone.

This poured an orange color with a white head. The aroma contains some caramel, pine, and oranges. The flavor is bitter with a nice malty presence. Bitter orange and caramel showing up. Aftertaste is also bitter. Overall this is a good beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle courtesy of Suttree. Best Before May 2013 Week 3 notched on the label. The pour is very slightly hazed orange golden with a 1 ½ inch light tan head, which is quite lasting. The aroma is soft citrus fruit hops, lightly resin floral, along with a mineral cracker malt. The taste is resin cracker malt up front, moving quickly to the floral citrus fruit hop. Finish is mineral and dry. As the beer warms, both the aroma and taste reveal a decent amount of pine. The palate is medium bodied, unfiltered natural mouth feel and the dry finish. Nice IPA, would love to try fresh on draft. Thanks for sending this my way, Phil.
