Firewater is a very balanced and drinkable East Coast IPA. Six separate British hop varieties make your taste buds jump up and say “Wow!”, while wheat and five different barleys provide a malty balance. An American version of the historic English style, this beer can stand up to a journey – either halfway around the world or just from can to mouth!

Sample at Mondial de la Biere in Montreal. Cloudy golden body, small white head. Aroma of peaches, pineapple and orange flowers. Taste of grapefruit zest, orange candies, herbs, a touch of pine needles. Pretty aromatic and flowery.

sample at mondial de la bière 2015 - mtl. unclear mediumd ark golden orange with a small creamy white cap, some retention and lacing. spicy citrus, belgian angles - low phenols perhaps, toasted maltiness - touch of caramel, thyme and other fragrant herbs, hint of sweetness - candy barley sugars, touch of carbonic acid. average carbonation - slightly foamy, light body - oily; balanced citrusy-spicy finish. plain and rather dull but decently crafted anyhow.

lesifflebiere (1573) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 14, 2015
Liquide couleur maïs, peu de bulles en surface, avec un nez de pommes, de pêches et de sucre candi. La bouche est sèche, amère à souhait, surtout après la disparition totale du liquide. Les malts soutiennent fermement les houblons. Il en résulte une India Pale de facture assez classique, appuyant un peu sur tous les boutons, sans vraiment de défaut sinon qu’on peine à la différencier de la masse.

Foxbush (1711) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 30, 2015
Draft at the Carolina Beer Company bar in the Charlotte Airport The IPA poured a clear light amber color with an off white head. The nose detects grapefruit rind, yeast and some pine. The ale had a medium body with average carbonation. The taste was more complex with caramel malt balanced with floral hops. Hop bitterness swells in the back, guiding the brew towards a pleasantly dry finish.

ACHops (1242) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 22, 2015
12 oz can served in a pint glass. Listed on the can a 6% abv. Pours slightly hazy dark golden with medium off-white head. Aroma is light caramel malt and light spicy hops. Taste is chewy caramel malt, nice floral earthy hops on the back. Somewhat thin mouthfeel and the hops take over. Lingers bitter and dry on the finish.

ben4321 (5397) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 6, 2015
Location: Draft at the brewery, Asheville, 1/1/15

Aroma: It has a fairly mild aroma, light hops, orange/citrus, and a bit of bread
Appearance: It has a clear orange color with a small white head and some decent lace
Flavor: The flavor is along the same lines, with light malty sweetness and thin hops
Palate: The body of this one is light-medium, and it has a decent feel overall
Overall Impression: I actually preferred most of the other, less common, Catawba beers to their flagship IPA. It’s a decent beer, but it’s a little dull.
