Had this on tap at the brewery a served in a pint glass. Top notch IPA with tons of hop characteristics throughout and a nice malt sweetness on the finish. I highly recommend this beer!

Hop bomb explosion. Sweet smell complex mix of malt and citrus/pine combo. Amazing rip your head off IPA.

This beer is a floral, citrus punch in the nose! A froth that be bottled or draft is evenly white and thick, (it should be with the huge tea bags of hops it’s brewed with!) A chewy IPA that has no match, others will seek it’s balance and match with futility. Malt and Zythos hops are well balanced and the EtOH that comes forward simply makes you admire the tumbler it’s in and yearn for the next pint.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Recently brewed and tapped at the brewery downtown Nashville. Poured from growler. Pours a light mandarin orange with a light foamy head. Aroma is sweet cascade hops, very west coast style, that perfectly prepares your palate for the IPA. Taste is bright and bitter with quite a sweetness at the finish. Really enjoyable and drinkable! The ABV of the final brewed batch looks to be more around the 7% range so this batch is a bit high in ABV. This beer is absolutely worth a proper tasting from even the most critical IPA drinkers!!!

Great. Light haze orange gold with off white head. Aroma is pine and citrus. Taste leans toward citrus. Refreshing.

Complex aroma - hints of pine, cherry, citrus. Pours a rich orange, clear, and long lasting white head. First taste is somewhat subdued with only 83 IBU. Thick, rich, flavor with hops are mixed well with malt. Bitterness is not as pronounced as West Coast IPAs. A lingering aftertaste. For 7.2% ABV, little to no alcohol taste. Found to be a rather good IPA.

Light copper color. Medium head retention. Clear. Great hop aroma. Berry fruity aroma that goes with the taste. Slight bitterness. Smooth clean finish. I love this beer.

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!

First beer of the East Nashville Beer Festival, and it was a good way to start. Here’s the thing, though - while it is very good, there really isn’t anything terribly unique about it. Just a well made, insanely tasty IPA. Pine, caramel, the usual players. But it is tasty!

Immediate floral bitter taste. Sweet and hoppy. Strong persistent aftertaste in this case very good. Glad to see Blackstone bottle this. (Reviewing from bottle). Immediately appeals to me more than their other bottled options which are good brews. Well done!
