COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Firefly is an English-style Pale Ale brewed with Marris Otter barley and English heritage hops (because the Sex Pistols invented punk rock). To add a fruity and citrusy aroma, there’s a late addition of American Calypso hops (because the Ramones invented punk rock).

Really nice English style IPA. I’m so used to their crazy American Styles that I was actually surprised. Solid all around! Hope this goes year-round! Great Job DFH!

Pours a light amber color. Aromas of fruit, hops, and light caramel malt sweetness. Flavor is hoppy but a well balanced mixture of hops and malts, with a nice citrus taste.

jb (2898) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 2, 2015
Plain and boring in every way. Anne enjoyed trying it. On tap at the Old Toad. Not great to look at, or smell, taste and palate were the best of a boring lot.

Draught @ Dogfish Head Brewing & Eats, Rehoboth Beach, DE
Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, floral, grass and hint of citrus. Taste is light to medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a long floral and grassy finish. Body is light to medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

yngwie (16482) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 21, 2015
On tap at the brewpub. It’s a clear, pale golden beer with a small white head. The aroma is quite fruity, but weak, with some citrus notes and a touch of pale malts. Some bitterness in the flavor, it’s subtle and fruity, with some citrus and pale malts. Dry, medium bodied and soft on the palate, medium length finish. Sure a decent one, but a tad boring in this line-up. 150621
