An IPA brewed with orange peel, Chinook and Cascade hops, then aged on maple baseball bats donated by Louisville Slugger, it tastes citrusy and multi-facetedly woody.

Fremont Brewing labeled can poured into a Fremont beer can glass on 06.25.14. Aroma: Strong citrus, orange. Appearance: 2 finger fluffy head. See through amber. Taste: Maple, woodiness, orange. Flower, malt are subtle. Palate: Crisp and light. Overall: Itís like a maple bar with orange. Itís definitely a hop forward IPA, though. Nice.

Can, also a few months old as the previous rater noted. Not bad, dark golden-ish pour. Has a little bit of citrus but you can tell itís faded a bit. A little bit of wooden flavor. Iím certain itís much better fresh but I donít want to knock it for being old.

I Think this is the sly fox version. Great woodsy and citrusy aroma. Taste is mainly ipa with some wood buried back in there. Mouthfeel is light to moderate. Pretty tasty. Reminds me of cedar aged jai lai.

Can...pours copper clear with lots of head and carbonation. Aromas and flavor are bubblegum, yeast, orange, light wood if any. Get a lot of cascade hops, rye bread and toast malt in this one. Light to medium body. Ehh itís alright, at least it was pretty fresh.

Growler fill from Oceanside location. Pours a clear golden orange color, with a white head. Soft citrus, orange, cereal malt, faint oak, light bitterness, and some caramel. Pretty "softened" out for an IPA, not very aggressive, but easy drinking and fairly tasty. Ok.

Tap at Stone OíSide. Slightly murky golden orange pour with a froth of white foam. Aroma is dry hop bitterness with citrus, orange, pine, and soft wood in the background. Taste is dominated by dry, bitter hops with complimentary orange and pine over a clean, biscuit malt profile. Clean, crisp mouthfeel. Characteristic Stone bitterness but thereís quite a bit of balance here and the wood, while quite subtle, does add a nice softening aspect to the aggressive hops in both the aroma and flavor. Excellent
