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.

vipinvelp (4541) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2012
Lighter yellow with off-white brownish foam head, quick dissapearing. Aroma is typical for an IPA, I like it. Taste is nice bitter with some fruity far, far away. Good long lasting bitter aftertaste. (Houston 201208)

Ibrew2or3 (8814) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 18, 2012
22oz bomber pours clear gold with tall off white head. The aroma offers up somewhat citrus hoppiness followed by malt sweetness and a touch of resiny bitter notes. Not too bad. The taste has a nice mix of what seems to be flavor and bitter hops from mostly citrusy grapefruit and tangelo and a sliver of lime. There is a persistent bitter near resiny-ness that rides through the flavor front to back. Tasty!

OmegaX (1383) - Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle thanks to Dixonian. Nose is grapfruit/pine/dank hops. Caramel and sweetness. Taste follows suit, with a good dose of grapefruit and citrus with a smooth follow up from the maple. Good stuff.

3.6
Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - AUG 16, 2012
This IPA was refreshing and pretty sweet for the style. Aromas are sweet and oaky, bright citrus notes and hints of maple. The light carbonation contributes to the sweet malt character, but the finish was of grapefruit and lemongrass. Saint Arnold has a way with IPA’s, and this brew is no exception.

Aroma is hoppy and sweet. Redish, golden tint. Taste great. Hits you with a roasty hops flavor with hints of citrus. Smooth in the palate, I recommend trying this beer. It’s limited supply lends to the overall experience
