look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Hazy amber with a one finger head.

Smell: Started out mostly citrusy with some pine notes

Taste: Crisp with mostly piney hop taste. Was expecting citrus taste from the smell but none detected

Mouthfeel: Good carbonation with a nice smooth finish

Drinkability: I really needed a good beer after sitting for 45 minutes in my car on I-40 between Memphis and Forrest City, Arkansas (stupid highway construction). This beer definitely hit the spot when we reached the Hampton Inn in Arkadelphia. Looking forward to sharing the rest of the six-pack with my son when I finally make it back to Texas.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

bottle poured into tulip shaped glass

Appearance: Golden amber with a thick white head.

Smell: Strong hop presence; piney and citrusy, with a nice tropical fruity presence.

Taste: This is a well balanced beer. I can taste the hop presence and the sweetness from the malt and fruits. This lands more on the sweeter maltier side, but don't get me wrong you can still taste the earthy hops. It has a very rich taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a sweet dry finish.

Overall: This is a highly underrated beer. My favorite brew from Blackstone; Perfect for those who are new to the IPA Style. It's not to bitter nor aggressive. Overall It's more on the sweeter side, but you can definitely taste a hop presence.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Picked this up at Craft Brewed Nashville while in town for business.

A-pour is a crystal clear orange amber with a frothy white head and great retention and lacing.

S-some piney hops with lots of strongest character.

T-quite tasty indeed. Nice malty sweetness up front, sond good piney hop bitterness in the back. Good balance overall.

M-medium bodied, a bit slick. I prefer a somewhat lighter body in this style but it's not bad.

O/a fine local brew.we enjoyed the six pack in the room. None made it home.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A- pours a dark and hazy amber-orange with a small creamy white head that reduces to a small layer on top

S- orange and grapefruit citrus hops with a sharp peppery spice, caramel and bready sweet malt

T- citrus hops are there but more floral hop nose come out in the flavor, good amout of caramel malt sweetness to balance out the hops, the finish is slightly sweet with more floral hops on the finish

M- medium-heavy body with low carbonation, foamy mouthfeel leads to a chewy-yet-smooth finish, definitely doesn't drink like the over 7% is consists of

O- big hop flavors but enough malt to balance it out evenly, very easy drinking for the ABV, floral notes are nice.
