Fremont Homefront IPA


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.

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.
