COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Homefront IPA is an IPA first brewed by Fremont Brewing Company and major league pitcher Chris Ray. It is brewed to benefit Operation Homefront an organization that provides emergency financial and other assistance to the families of our service members and wounded warriors. The beer is a drinkable West Coast IPA. It pours a golden amber with a big white head. It has a big citrusy nose with a slight note of fresh oranges. Malty and sweet up front. Lighter bodied than might be expected. The hop bitter, orange peel and hop flavor seem to all kick in at the finish. Remarkably easy to drink for an IPA with the orange notes more of a secret ingredient than a dominant flavor. Quite thirst quenching making it perfect for enjoying during Memorial Day weekend. Consume this beer fresh as the hop flavor is best enjoyed this way.
This beer was brewed with pale and caramel malts, Chinook and Cascade hops, orange peel and orange zest, and last but not least, 6 maple Louisville sluggers in the bright beer tank.

Bottle:   Fiery golden, clear, moderate to large off-white head, nice lacing.   Pithy and piny nose, slightly sweet.   Lightly sweetened citrus peel and pith on the tongue.   Fairly smooth.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Light candied citrus peel on the backside.   Not overly bitter, but loads of flavor.   Heavily citrus oriented.   Solid example of an IPA.   Thanks Bill!
