look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Pours a medium amber-orange tint with an inch of creamy, white head that dissipates quickly to about a 1/4th inch head.

Smell: Citrus, piney resin, mild hop presence.

Mouthfeel: A modest amount of carbonation. I'm not getting the "very carbonated" mouthfeel that others are saying. It has a very wet finish that strangely has me wanting more, although I generally prefer a dry finish. I enjoy the lingering citrus finish.

Taste: Strong citrus (as it's brewed with zested oranges and citrus peel), grapefruit, pine, a slightly sweet malty presence towards the end, and just a dash of slightly bitter hops that make it an IPA.

Overall: It's a modest version of an IPA. Great for anyone looking to try an India Pale Ale without the usual strong presence of hop bitterness that assault the taste buds. The wet, citrus finish is nice and perfect for a hot Texas summer day. It's not a type of beer I'd normally drink since it's a little light on the bittering hops for an IPA, but it's a one time beer that will never be brewed again apparently. Very average overall, but hey it's for charity...

Homefront is a great Saint Arnold brew. A single batch brew that they usually do once a year. Pours a cloudy orange with a finger head. Smells of citrus. Hops still there with the citrus taste. Overall a solid IPA and also supports our troops because 100% of the proceeds go to the military.

Served chilled into a tulip.

Pours a hazy light orange color with an inch of airy beige colored head that slowly recedes.

Aromas of grapefruit and pine with a mineral background. As it warmed I also picked up guava.

Flavors of pine and candied citrus peel. Similiar to Endeavor, but more subdued.

Mouthfeel is medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall a good IPA for a good cause. Only downside is nothing in the profile really stuck out for me.
