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!

can. pale gold with a large, fluffy, white head. a spicy and floral hop aroma. this one leans towards bitterness, however, does provide just enough malt sweetness. finished dry and bitter. light body. smooth palate.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 18, 2013
On tap at Barley’s, Asheville. Fairly translucent golden orange pour, scant head and carbonation. Sweet hop extract and malts in the nose, barely any bite suggested. Thin mouthfeel, a bit slick. Understated hops to say the least, just perfunctory bite and overall sweetness.

Comes out of the tap a nice clear golden with a decent off-white head. Aroma is more fruity than hoppy, but still tempting, and has a hint of caramel. Hops come out in the flavor, though, bitter wood with notes of pomme fruit, citrus and malt and just a whisper of caramel, sweet nicely balancing bitter. Texture is firm and smooth but not too fizzy, and leaves a bitter hoppy finish. Get fired up!

Panzuriel (1698) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAR 26, 2013
On tap at urban bar in Knoxville tn. Firewater pours a hazy apple juice rich amber. Nose is crisp combo of floral hop scents. Taste is a fair amount of good bitters on the front that mellow through the mid taste. Finishes nicely. A good medium strength IPA.

jbruner (3720) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Pours a golden orange from the growler with fluffy off-white head and moderate lacing. Aroma and taste follow, earthy and piney hops with pale malt back. Easy to drink, but nothing special.

Garbageman (486) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - JAN 19, 2013
From tap. Pours deep golden in color with small head. Aroma was mild earthy/citrus hops. Taste followed with a extra kick of bitterness with not enough malt to balance.

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Draft. Pours a clear golden orange with icing-like lacing. smell is sweet toffee and earthy, grassy hops. Taste is muddled citrus and earthy hops. I did not enjoy this one at all.
