Pours a typical golden amber with a slight white head and some lacing. Aroma is fresh floral hops. Mouthfeel is good, medium density with plenty of carbonation. Taste is pleasantly floral/herbal with just a hint of malt backbone. Overall quite good for an area of the country not known as a craft beer haven.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip glass. A great looking beer; thick sticky head, hazy orange in color. Pine, floral, and citrus. Excellent taste, strong resiny hop flavor with a lingering bitter aftertaste. Previous reviewers complained a bit about the level of hop bitterness...I think that was the point y'all. Anyways, one of the best IPA's brewed in Tennessee IMO. Blackstone is really bringing it strong these days.
