Firewheel Barrel Aged Midnight Ninja
On tap at Taps and Caps. Brownish pour with a white head. The aroma has some cherry notes plus some toasted malt and light cocoa. The flavor is more of the same. There is a strong cherry and toffee character, but no real oak notes that I can decipher. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Firewheel StrIPA with Grapefruit
Enjoyed this much more than the original with strawberries. Great aroma of hops and citrus. Nice color and palate. Flavors blended well with a strong grapefruit presence that enhanced the citrusy hop bitterness.

Tap. Golden orange with small head. This is a really interesting idea that doesnt quite work. Strong strawberry with a light sweetness. Medium hop bitterness. Instead of blending, the flavors fight a bit.

Firewheel Bourbon Barrel Sour Ninja
On tap at Jackís a few months back. Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma is full of cherry and toffee. The flavor is a bit different. I get some chocolate and toffee notes as well as some fruitiness - mainly grapes and cherries. There is a decent amount of vinegar in the flavor as well. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

On tap at The Rustic in Dallas. Pours a hazy golden color with white head. A little strawberry on the nose with some pine and sweetness; on the palate it really tastes more like a normal IPA than anything, not much sweetness from the strawberries, just a hint. Not bad.

On tap at the Firewheel brew tour. Faint pine aroma. Taste of subtle strawberry, resin, floral and grass. Medium high carb, watery body. The added strawberry taste mellowed out the hop bitterness. Intriguing combination indeed.

Decent brown ale but needs some work. Slightly roasted aroma. Dark brown and almost looked like a stout with a small head. Average weight with lower carbonation. Had creaminess like a milk stout. Roasted malt and nutty flavors. Not a strong hops presence. OK first impression.
