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!

biznizness (1128) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Draft at Angry Ales with Nick a few weeks ago, while the girls were out for Marsha’s bach party. Solid and clean IPA, definitely a good pick. Not a super standout or anything, but good.

bubbleflubber (2159) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 18, 2010
Draught at Barley’s in Asheville. Pours orange-amber with a nice frothy head that leaves thick rings of lace. Nose is of countryside hay and silage. Some hints of candied citrus underneath peppering bitter hops. Crisp mouthfeel and coats the palate. Goes down well, but wish it were a little more balanced and complex.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2010
On tap at Barleys, Asheville NC, 6 July 2006. Amber colour. Heavy flowery hop presence in the aroma. Perhaps a bit over the top. More subtle on the palate. Still plenty of grapefruit but less of the florists shop. Not a whole lot of malt to balance it out. Smooth mouthfeel. Quite easy drinking. Not too far from excellence in some respects but doesn’t quite hit the mark in others. Still a pretty tasty pint.

StinkBall (157) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2010
This was a good IPA except for the finish. The taste and finish was a little weak. A little watery needed a little more full body. It is a very easy IPA to drink and I think it is an IPA that people who don’t like the hopper IPAs would like.

Butters (4042) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 5, 2009
On draft at preservation pub in knoxville. Clear orange amber, minimal white head. Buttery, piney, citrusy, with a distint bitter finish. Overly bittrer, and overly average. Cool name though.

Growler from Libation Station. Good, not too hoppy IPA shared with friends at a cookout. One of the better IPA’s I’ve had in a while.
