3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can purchased recently but -- now that I see thatís a summer IPA -- not particularly fresh.
Orange-brown pour, coarse foamy amber head. Surprisingly perfumy aroma. Orange peel, unusual-for-the-style nuttiness, aged hops. Unfortunately, the aged hops are well apparent in the flavor. A little bit of sweetness, that nuttiness again, orange zest in addition to the orange from the hops. Aged on Louisville Slugger bats...well I never! Pretty drinkable; nice beer. Iíd like to try one fresh and have bumped the score here slightly to estimate what that would be like.

Can. Eye catching can for sure. Pours dark gold with a really bitter aroma. A little off putting aroma but this beer tastes delicious so itís okay. Really nice orange flavor. Decently hoppy. I canít say I can tell this is aged on baseball bats, but I love baseball, and since I know itís there, itís cool. Overall, this is a great summer beer, especially when the baseball game is on. Good stuff.

Solid, well balanced IPA. Thereís nothing to dislike here. Nice malt flavor, nice hoppy flavor, and sufficient bitterness. This will not satisfy hop heads, and itís not overly unusual -- orange peel "hint" of flavor notwithstanding -- but it totally is good.

Can. Kick ass awesome patriotic can. 5 for appearance. ;) Orange peel is quite apparent in the aroma. Almost candy citrus aroma. Flavor doesnt depart far from Fremont classic tropical and citrus hops but there is a noticeable vanilla and woody taste. Is it just me or does the thought of drinking baseball bat beer off-putting? Overall another solid IPA from Fremont but with a slight twist to make it unique...and awesomely American. U!S!A! U!S!A!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear orange-brown out of the bottle, two fingers of foam with excellent staying power. Fragrant aroma, flowery, small amounts of pine. Flavor has more pine, orange zest bitterness, and prominent malt of the grain/bread variety. Solid effort.

Poured from draft at Pop in Seattle. Darker orange with white head. Not too much nose to it. Good citrus and pine balance. Slight bitter and hops and just an overAll easy drinker

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours amber, copperish, white head, decent retention and irregular lacing. Aroma: citrus, candied orange, some wood, some pine. Taste: on the sweet side for an ipa - I'm repeating the candied orange impression, with some cotton candy thrown in. Nice lasting bitter finish. Thin texture, soft-to-average carb. Overall: despite what my description may imply, I think this overall comes out pretty well overall. Definitely happy to drink this.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bomber pours clear copper with gold edges and sort of light tan head of foam. I smell a little tart to resin as well as vague hoppiness with mild malt sweetness around the edges. The taste begins with a firm sweet malt base but then slightly citrus notes and a resiny hoppiness seem to have no problem elbowing through the malt sweetness. I get a good dose of hop flavor and lesser amounts of resiny hop bitterness. Pretty nice brew.
