COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Homefront IPA is an India Pale Ale summer IPA brewed with sweet orange peel and aged on the zest of fresh oranges in addition to maple bats donated by Louisville Slugger.Yes, we think it is a wonderful summer IPA and yes, the orange really does come through. And, yes, we are a little biased so why not try one for yourself and lift a glass to those who fight for us. And thanks.

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.

kaser (2104) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 1, 2013
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

Theydon_Bois (7000) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2013
Bottle split at Endo’s, 26/05/13, cheers to Jim. Almost clear golden amber with a thin off white head. Nose is hops, light floral notes, bitter orange, citrus. Taste comprises orange pith, light pine, citrus, hops. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, light pine and hop bitterness at the curtain call. Solid IPA.

Prufrockstar (679) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 25, 2013
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

phaleslu (5875) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 30, 2012
22 oz. bottle shared by someone, I believe Paul, at our massive Hunahpu’s tasting- thanks again! Pours a semi-cloudy gold color with a small off-white head. Notes of pale malts, grass, citrus, herbs, and nectar. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. Solid IPA, but I liked the Homefronts from Cigar City and Perennial slightly more.

Borresteijn (4405) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2012
66cl Bottle brought from the US, thanks H&T. ABV 6.2%, brewed for the veterans. Clear golden orange colour, white head. Aroma of lovely fruity hops, quite floral, light dusty, citrus, orange, light malty. Flavour is light to medium sweet, malty, orange peel, floral, light fruity, spruce and pine bitter finish, almost herbal. Light bodied, really nice and refreshing stuff.

jrob21 (2351) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Pours a light clear golden color. Nice west coast vibe going on with a lot of grassiness and a touch of citrus in the aroma and flavor. Finish is a lot of grapefruit and some piney bitterness. Digging this one.

Aubrey (3417) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Delicious and refreshing. Great summer/session IPA. Zesty orange comes through really well -- bright, juicy and aromatic. Fluffy and effervescent carbonation. Doughy-sweet malts, with notes of scones and light caramel. Citrusy hops blend seamlessly with the orange. Moderate, balancing bitterness. Easy to drink. And tasty.
