I was absolutely amazed when I tried this beer. Blackstone is a Brew Pub in Nashville, TN which I eat at regularly. This was the first time I had seen their American pale.... my wife, after her first sip, said, 'this is better than Sierra Pale'!! Which is her favorite beer. I must agree!! doboy (424) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - AUG 23, 2014
I like this APA! Pours a light ambeer color, nice head that stays the whole beer, white and lacy. Clear with good carbonation. Good hoppy nose. Great taste with just spot on hoppiness! Great mouth feel. Nice aftertaste. I could make this a sesion beer if I could get it in NC!!! dwyerpg (6187) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 14, 2012
This really smells nice; citrusy hops. Looks okay. A very effervescent flavor, tingly and dry. Pretty good. Certainly sessionable. Braudog (6716) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 19, 2006
Draft pint at the brewpub 5/14/06: Orange beer. Slippery mouthfeel. Resin is part of the hoppy essence. Hint of grapefruit bite but a very subtle well refined beer. SSSteve (4006) - - AUG 15, 2012

Pours a beautiful rust red color. Aroma is lacking a bit but the initial taste is just solid. Solid where the initial taste is hop friendly but finishes so clean and crisp. Almost no lingering effect on the pallate. Lacing all down the glass.. this beer is my favorite of the Blackstone line. rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Had on tap at Mellow Mushroom in Johnson City, TN.
Arrived with a big puffy head and a dark gold body. Great head retention and lacing.
Aroma of cereal grain and caramel along with a bit of citrus.
Lots of grain in the taste along with some toasted malt and caramel. Some lemony citrus underneath leading to a moderate bitterness. Really a great balance between malt and hops and a really easy drinking beer. Really worth seeking out.

Bought at Krogers on Broadway.
Clear golden with lots floating. Medium beige head. Aroma: Pine, citris. Flavor: Grapefruit/lemon, bread. Bitter finish.
Most people don’t realise that the south is well known for its PA’s and IPA’s. North Carolina is probably best known but do not overlook Tennessee. Shannonao (15) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 3, 2015
My hub picked up a 6 pack of this when we were in TN. Pours a warm golden color with a touch of haze. Ok aroma. A little orange-rind flavor, nice aftertaste. I like it!!

Draft at Restaurant. Amber color in the glass with a frothy off-white head that lasted and left thick lacing. The aroma was floral and citrus. The flavor was of citrus, pine, and hints of malts. Light body that was clean and crisp. Had a balanced bitterness that does not last. Very enjoyable.
