4.55/5 rDev +19.1%
A- poured from a bottle into a glass. Deep, dark orange with minimal head that dies quickly.
S- smells of hops. Still learning but it smells like chinook and centennial to me.
T- somewhat sweet up front with the hops quickly overtaking the taste. Good hop flavor with some bite. The bitterness is not harsh though. Very good balance which plays well with the smell.
M- I get a little tingle from the hops, not too thick, not too thin. As Goldilocks would say, "This beer is just right."
I really enjoyed this beer. I'm glad it is local for me.

Pours a relatively clear orange gold with 2 full fingers of paper white head. Laces decently and retains the head relatively well.
Nose is more orange than grapefruit with a strong malt underpinning. Smells stronger than the abv would warrant. Well done.
Mild hit on the tongue, orange citrus builds. Just a hint of tart grapefruit compliments that in the end. Finish is fairly dry, but still retains the orange sweets.
Decent malt backbone backs up the orange citrus. Body well matched to the flavor.
Overall a very tasty drinker. Next to their Maris Otter, my favorite from this brewery/pub.

A: Served on tap at The Flying Saucer in Memphis, TN. GO HERE!! Anyway, Pours a lightly haze golden amber, with a nice head
S: Definitely hoppy, a bit piney with a touch of sour
T: WOW! I really enjoyed this one. I had never had Blackstone before visiting Memphis, and I really hope they come to St. Louis. I'm definitely a hop-head, and this didn't dissapoint. A wonderfully complex beer, I would rate it as more of an amped up single than a double. It was missing the malty sweet of a double, which I'm good with. Grapefruit, citrus, maybe a hint of clove
M: Smooth for a DIPA. A crisp beer, but still easy drinking.
O: Man, it's almost worth the trip to Nashville to grab a few growlers. Definitely a great beer

Reviewing from notes taken on 2/23...
A- Has a nice hazy bright orange pour with a half finger head that dies instantly. Fairly still, but vibrant color.
S- Centennial bomb is what this smells like, and I'm not complaining. Nice citrus tones with banana, pineapple, and grass. Has a sweet caramel malt presence.
T/M- This is a big boy. The bite on the finish is intense and approaching harsh. Palate initially has an orange/grapefruit pop that moves towards grass clippings and flowers. 80IBU is very evident, I would even guess higher if it wasn't known. The body holds up the bitterness and hop flavors well, being moderately full.
O- Probably the second best Blackstone beer (behind their coffee stout) and the hoppiest beer ever brewed in the state of TN. I can't think of anything from any brewery that compares to this. We need more!

A newer offering from Blackstone sampled at the brewpub. Not a gigantic double IPA, but enough hops horsepower to qualify for the category. Some malt sweetness, quickly giving way to an initially brusk hops wave that sorts itself out a bit toward the end. A touch of alcohol at the finish lends some white pepper.
