COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. Judging be the ambitious name, I was expecting more out of this but was underwhelmed. Moderate hop flavor with a bit of bitterness. Seemed a bit thin, lacking something. Good beer but would not buy again.

Not really an interesting IPA, but not a bad one. It pours orange in color with very little foam. The aroma is a little bit of grassy hops, vegetables, and mildly sweet notes. The flavor is dominated by the hops in a perfectly acceptable way. The malt is not undetectable. Decent.

Can from Bruisin Ales. Pours lightly copper tinged gold with a white head. Aroma of fruity hop, mild these, and some not at all dark malt support. Med body, or nearly. Flavor is light fruity hop, some light caramel, and a pretty decent dose of bitter. Not kidding about the 65 IBU. Sort of English bitter on a rocket. And I don’t mean arugula. Or maybe I should, since the hop is a bit herbal. The fruit hop likely isn’t bitterifying (new word there!) this ale. I’m pretty much liking it.

On draft at brewery. Aroma is floral hops, bready malts. Taste is spicy floral hops. Peppery. A bit of noble pils malt.

Meh. This one is pretty basic. Almost has some Belgium flavors to it. It is fairly easy drinking but not something I would seek out.

Backlog, now into our brief Carolina vacation. On tap at the Holiday Inn in Asheville. Poured a medium orange gold, slight head. Aroma was crackery malts and some floral, slightly green and earthy hop notes. Comes across English in nature. Flavor matches. Weird sense of American big bittering levels combined with English hop flavors. Honestly, couldn’t get into it.
