Iím a sucker for wood aged IPAís and this is no different. Deep orange color with notes of citrus and sweet caramel. Bright citrus taste with subtle wood flavors. Itís no White Oak Jai Alai, but pretty darn good.

12oz can. Orange amber color with one finger head. A little citrus, orange, wood in the aroma. Definitely can taste the wood from the bats, it works well with the beer. Some orange, and a little grapefruit. Pretty good beer.

12 oz can. Orange amber body with lots of sediment in the glass and a small white head of small bubbles. Caramel oak and grapefruit hops along with distinct caramel in the aroma. Sweet malts in the flavor mixed with wood chips, grapefruit rind a lingering bitterness. Delicious and refreshing.

From notes. Tasted some time near the summer of 2012 from a capped 750mL bottle. Pours light orange with an average white head that leaves average, sticky lace. The nose is resin bitterness with tons of grapefruit peel and a malty maple characteristic. The flavor seems a bit disjointed with not much on the front and aggressive hops and baking spice bitterness on the back. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long, very bitter finish.

I got this 12oz can as a trade extra. It says CCB on it and Homefront IPA but it says special edition so Iím not sure if this is the right place to rate it or not? Can was silver and plain looking, nothing like the pic on here. Pours a hazy orange with fluffy white head. Lots of white chunks in it and can was canned in May. Aroma was malty, wood, orange, and musty. Taste was a malt bomb, sweet but yet very sour as well. Did get some orange and wood notes as well. Wasnít impressed, but again, it was 90 days out from canning so who knows.

12oz can. Color is of the standard Cigar City IPA. Nice, bright and orange. Nice citrus hops with vanilla lingering in the aroma. Assume that came in from the baseball bats. CCB makes another good IPA.

12oz can pours a slightly hazy, dark orange with some lacing, fluffy white head. Loads of chunky sediment in the glass too. Sat in my fridge for a while too. Nose has malt, the slightest hint of birch, orange rind, some mild grapefruit, a little soap. Flavor is sweet, sticky, orange, soap, grapefruit, a little unripened stone fruit. Finishes a little sticky.

12oz can canned on 05/20/14 via trade with djd07. Poured a medium density deep orange marmalade body under a foamy brighter white head. Aroma of orange slices, wood, toast, chaff, tangerine, yellow grapefruit. Good body, refreshing, medium bodied, softer carbonation, delicate and quocker fading bitterness on the end. Flavor is spicy, cinnamon stick, cinnamon bread, dry toast, citrus rind, oranges, tangerine. Good stuff.

Bottle thanks to Homer! Pours hazy orange amber with a freaking huge beige head. Pain in the ass to pour, and the head actually has decent creaminess and dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is caramel, pine, oak, oranges. Flavor is medium sweet, light bitter, oaky caramel, pine and vanilla. Medium body, interesting beer, not really getting much maple.
