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!

bhensonb (14497) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 26, 2016
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 dont mean arugula. Or maybe I should, since the hop is a bit herbal. The fruit hop likely isnt bitterifying (new word there!) this ale. Im pretty much liking it.
