Bottle sample at RBWG. Pours a clear golden amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have resiny, light citrus, a hint of cleaning solution, mild floral notes, pale malts with a splash of caramel. Low end of average.

Look: pours a clear golden color. Nice thick head, hangs around a while Smell: slight bitterness aroma Taste: heavy malt flavor. Slight hops flavor to it, but not very strong. Feel: not heavy at all. Almost feels like a bud light or pbr. Overall: not a very hoppy APA. I was hoping to get more hops on either the nose or the taste. First drank: home 5/5/14

On Tap at Blackstone Restaurant and Brewery in Nashville TN. Blackstone’s APA is clear coppery colored pour with a smaill white head. The aroma is of crisp floral and just a bit of evergreen hops. Taste is a tasty blend of hops with a good amount of malt backbone. Body is medium full with a bit of a satiny texture. Finish is good bitters. A decent beer.

This one poured a bright orange color with an off white head. Aroma was of orangey and citrusy hops, and caramel. Flavor was prettty similar, malty, and I think maytbe a bit old.

Pretty basic pale that's been hopped up with spicy and citrus hop notes. Not bad for an APA.

Brilliantly clear golden color. Thin head laces down the glass. Strong citrus American hop aromas with biscuity malt backbone Flavor is very strong citrusy hops. Slightly stale, resinous flavor. Oxidized. Originally rated low but returned points as stale hops and oxidation are usually one off characters in a brewery of this scale.
