So the water you purchased was chlorinated hence the 'rubbing alcohol' (could it also be described as medicinal?) This can actually be dealt with via pre boiling, letting it sit, Camden tablets, or carbon filtration.
The water at home... I don't know. Orange says to me hops or stressed yeast.
the water from Quincy IL sounds like a winner for that style (Barley wine?)
Google Bru'n water and start to look into the effect water chemistry can have.
