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!

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.

Pours hazy, straw. Muted hops and malts. Taste is muted. Nothing special. This doesn't do it for me ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HonkeyBra (4034) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2012
12 oz can from Suttree. Thanks man! Poours a golden orange color with a big thick white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, mild sweet caramel malt. I get notes of orange and tangerine, as well as sweet malt notes. Flavor is strong citrus hops. Medium bitterness. Lots of caramel, mild sweetness. Finishes on a medium bitter note. Pretty cool beer to try.

12oz can into a pint glass. 6% abv printed on the can. Pours a hazy dark orange with a one finger off-white head. Light lacing. Aroma is fairly malt with with dark bread and some caramel. There is orange and grapefruit hop aroma along with some earthiness. The flavor is quite earthy in the beginning; almost dirt-like but in a good way. Some dark, rye bread in there too. A strong bitterness takes hold right away and doesn’t let go through the duration. A little bit of orange hop flavor along with a slightly Belgian spicyness. Mouthfeel is quite full considering the strength and style. Overall this is a fairly unique and enjoyable IPA. Plenty of hoppyness but enough of a malt backbone to support it. Easy to have a few of these in a session.

Dogbrick (11327) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Sample at Acoustic Coffeehouse in Johnson City. The beer is a slightly hazy orange-amber color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes steadily. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of fruity hops and malt. Light body with flavors of citrusy hops and sweet malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

A hazed amber IPA with a thin creamy off white head. In aroma, a light grassy malt and faint hops. In mouth, a doughy malt with citrusy floral hops, menthol, a decent IPA. On tap at Knoxville Brewer’s Jam, Oct. 22 2011.

Braudog (6290) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - OCT 4, 2011
Draft at Barley’s Asheville. Light golden amber with a mere cloud of foam. Mashy and sweet, this drinks with a puckering acidity, full of orange-laden fruit. Good American style. (#4283, 10/4/2011)
