COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fire Rock Pale Ale is a crisp, refreshing “Hawaiian-style” pale ale. Its signature copper color results from the unique blend of specialty roasted malts. The pronounced citrus-floral hop aroma comes from the liberal amounts of Galena, Cascade & Mt. Hood hops added to each brew.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with almost no head. My label is different than the example shown, so I may have an older bottle (mine is a green mountain, yellow sky, palm trees and the ocean with ocean liner). Nose is mainly malt with a touch of citrus hops. Palate has a malty bread-like taste with a slight bitter hop bitter aftertaste. I hope for this beer’s sake that I have an older bottle, as it’s not a good representative of the style if it’s a fresh one.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - APR 3, 2008
Tap at Flying Saucer with Zinister and Malt-O-Meal. Pours a rich amber with a nice head and lacing. Aroma is sweet grapefruit and mild orange. Flavor is mild malted grapefruit, strawberry, and peach. Easy-to-take mouthfeel. Nice, refreshing, and approachable; worth another try.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 3, 2008
On tap at Flying Saucer, drank with Kaggie97 and Maltomeal. Gold amber color with small head. Pretty straightforward nose of hops and malts. Flavor is the same, with a touch of caramel. Surprisingly better than I expected. Solid Pale Ale.

BeerZack (288) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAR 31, 2008
Very light amber, almost dark orange with moderate off white head that leaves some lace. Light scents of caramel malt and roasted barley with fruity and floral hops slightly dominating. Sweet lightly roasted malts and nice hop bittering throughout. Mostly roasted barley, caramel, light ripe fruit and bit of citrus before the woodsy bittering takes over. Moderate-heavy carbonation, but not too stingy. Medium bodied mouthfeel. Pretty drinkable.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAR 30, 2008
Dark gold, thin off white head. Spicy aroma. Thin bodied slightly malty with a little bit of hops (not enough in my opinion).

kidmartinek (3741) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 28, 2008
Pours the color of pale ale. You know that clear copper, with a 2 inch soap bubble thick foam head with a copper tint. The aroma is of a floral bouquet, and hops, and a little citrus (lemon), and a litle dirt. It’s a complex aroma. The flavor is nice, clean, smooth, mild, and just a little hoppy. This is an easy drinkable beer. It would be outstanding if it had a liitle more carbonation (bite). It’s got a good, creamy mouthfeel, but is a little run down on the tongue. The finish is clean mostly, but a little creamy, and leaves a light taste of hops.

BMan1113VR (7904) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 27, 2008
Pours with a large, rocky, off-white head. Reddish-copper body. Light floral hops in the aroma with some hop presence. Taste is more malt than hop bitterness. Pretty watery tasting. Dry mouthfeel.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 26, 2008
Dark gold, thin head. Caramel malt and citrus hop aroma. Candy like malt and mildly hoppy flavor. Has some toffee and the citrus hops mingle with some spicy hops. Halfway between an American and British pale ale.
