A--Translucent gold/amber, fluffy head, not much lacing.

S--Tropical citrus, star fruit, granny smith apples.

T--Follows nose, with terrific, balanced finish of sour apples and lemon.

F--Medium dry, refreshing.

O--Without question one of the best IPAs produced south of the mason dixon line. Fabulous.

Poured from a 22oz bomber. Citrus smell and taste with peach as the most prominent note. Just the right balance with a smooth, moderately bitter finish. This ranks right up there with freak of nature as nc's best IPAs.
