COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Homefront IPA is brewed to honor our veterans as they return home from duty. It was conceived by MLB pitcher Chris Ray and brewed last year with Fremont Brewing. We at Perennial are very excited and honored to be a part of brewing this year’s batch. Homefront IPA is brewed with oranges and aged on Louisville Slugger bats. Operation Homefront provides financial assistance to the families of our service members and proceeds from the sale of this beer will be donated to Operation Homefront.

Frank (2929) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
This is a clear orange IPA w/ a long lasting head that leaves spots of lace all over the glass. Sampled at the brewery, this has a fresh peach and mandarin orange nose. It is medium bodied and just slightly sweet which further enhances the citrus notes. A lingering earthy bitterness finishes this out nicely.

On tap @ Perennial during RBSG. Pours a touch hazy golden orange appearance with a lasting off white head. Aroma has oranges, tangerine, wood, and some flowers. The wood isn’t that overly powerful in the flavor but is present. Citrus, moderate bitterness, and some floral notes. Ok.
