Took home a growler of Freckle Belly IPA from Back Forty Beer. Purchased from Hop City in Birmingham. After trying the bottled version, I was looking foward to trying the draft. All I can say is that it does not dissapoint. Freckle Belly IPA is one of the best IPA's you'll ever taste. It's malty, hoppy, and delicious. There's an oily mouthfeel with citrus notes. This beer is very drinkable. Keep up the good work Back Forty Beer! Alabama is becoming an IPA lovers paradise.

On tap at Fisher's in Orange Beach. Plenty of hops and very slight citrus taste. Good hot day sipping beer. Goes well with seafood.

A -Poured from a bomber into a pint glass dark amber with a thick, creamy, off-white, two-finger head that receded into a tight cap. Thin slick lacing.

S - Nice and hoppy with a touch of grapefruit and a bit of pepper.

T - Big ole biscuits! Pepper with a touch of tinny alcohol.

M - Medium-bodied, with a good bit of aftertaste following the aforementioned alcohol.

O - Great smelling, great looking beer that only fell slightly short of very good in the taste department due to the tinge of alcohol versus a grassy finish typical of my favorite genre.

Appearance: clear honey colored. White and frothy head. Thick messy lacing. A gorgeous brew.
Smell: 5 types of hops and it pays off. Pine, fruit, and citrus (plagiarizing from the b40 site but, that nails it. Redolent hops and nicely balanced with the malts.
Taste: much like the nose while just falling short of measuring up to it. Nevertheless, a standout.
Overall: my first b40. Tried it mostly because their "right up the road". Also I gotta admit I'm a little weary of the zillion ipa's poppin up everywhere. This was a very pleasant surprise.
