Fremont Homefront IPA

CIMG4444

I’ve been looking forward to this beer for a long time. First of all, it’s a Fremont beer, and they’ve been killing it. But also, it’s brewed with baseball bats! How awesome is that? All of the proceeds from this beer goes to Operation Homefront, a charity for our veterans. If anything else, buy this beer for that. It’s a collaboration with the Chris Ray, who is a Seattle Mariner pitcher. They didn’t want to make just any IPA, so they brewed it with oranges and aged it on donated Louisville Slugger baseball bats.

Stats:
American India Pale Ale. 6.2% ABV. Washington. Limited Release.

It’s an orange color with a nice off-white head. Leaves some great lacing as well.

The nose has a bit of fresh pine and a little bit of orange citrus, with just a hair of an earthy quality.

Mouthfeel is well done. It’s a medium body with highish carbonation.

Pine and orange juice on the palate. The orange doesn’t come out too much. A little bit of earth and tobacco follow with a vanilla finish. It’s got some length, and doesn’t shy away from the bitterness. Luckily, it’s really not over the top.

It’s a pretty solid IPA. I can’t say the bats came through, and the orange did just a little bit. Solid, but doesn’t blow me away. 87 points.
