Ok IPA. More akin to a pale ale IMHO
Mild flavor, subtle aroma, and easy drinking.

From a can. Pours murky amber copper with a fizzy white head. Tastes like nutty malt, grapefruit, dry pine. Light body and low carbonation. Smells nutty, malty, like grapefruit, caramel, and light pine. sonnycheeba (6342) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Can. Pours hazy amber with creamy off-white head. Aroma is cereal and toasted malts, light caramel, light pear, faint floral notes, and faint tropical fruits. Flavor is dry malts, fresh hops, light fruit esters, some toast, and some caramel sweetness; very drinkable with a smooth finish. Medium body and carbonation. rosenbergh (11793) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Draught at the Barley's, Asheville, NC.
Slightly cloudy golden colour with a small off-white head.
Mild sweetness, mild hops and some malt. Very weak aroma.
Sweet and dark hop profile. Mild bitterness. Easy and sweet IPA. Mild.

Serving: Draft at Carolina Beer Company in the Charlotte airport. It pours a decent amber gold color with a lasting off white head. Nice bit of citrus in the nose with a little bit of pine and caramel malt. Lighter hop notes on the palate than in the nose. More biscuity malt with a little caramel and orange rind. Perhaps a little thin in the body. Fairly clean and refreshing.

Aroma: beer doesn't have a distinct or powerful smell. Beer leans more towards a hoppy and floral smell.
Appearance: very deep golden color. Borderline orange in color. Limited foam at the top of the beer and opaque in viscosity.
Taste: due to strong hop content, this beer has a medium-bitter taste. Deliciously smooth though!
Palate: medium body with a thin texture. Very smooth finish with a medium to light bitter after taste due to the hop content.
Overall: by far one of my favorite India Style IPA's. I am generally biased towards this style of beer but what I enjoy most about the Firewater is the smooth bitter finish that doesn't over power your taste buds like other IPAs. Beer has been added to my favorites.

Can. Not really the best IPA out there. Gold color. Usally grapefruit aroma and gruitfruit taste. Travlr (26069) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Draft at the source during RBWG. Hazy golden amber color, light white head. Aroma of earthy pine. Taste has earthy citrus, light pine. Tasty. bconch (454) - - AUG 9, 2014
Orange color with nose of sweet citrus. Malts add to that sweetness. Malty taste overpowers but some bitterness on the finish. kathouse (1940) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - JUL 26, 2014
On tap at Carolina Brewing in CLT airport. Light and hazy gold with a moderate foam. Pine and citrus aromas that are a little underwhelming but pleasant. Light body, good carbonation, moderate bitterness. Malt sweetness was a little off balance but this was still middle of the road example of the style. Hop flavor seemed low. Finish was slightly bitter.
