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.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 1, 2006
Had this on-tap at the brewery. The beer was a hazy light amber color with a tiny, creamy, off-white, mostly diminishing head that left behind a little lacing. The aroma wasn’t terribly engaging: light notes of hoppy flowers and a light yeasty note of cellar. The flavor started lightly bittersweet and ended in a long, lightly bitter finish. The body was light-to-medium with a watery texture and lively carbonation. A bit short on PA characteristics and overall not very memorable.

A very unremarkable Pale Ale. I was not expectimg fire works and I did not get them. Hops were reseanoble but mild.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - DEC 20, 2005
Thanks to Hezron for this one! Pours a slighlty hazy amber color, small white head. Aroma is grainy, a little sweetness to the nose. Flavor is dominately sweet, but still well balanced with piney hops.

mjg74 (2487) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 6, 2005
Bottled. Pours a golden brown color. Aroma is sweet and a little malty. Hops are also present. A little sweet pine too. Fairly sweet right up front. A little bit of a hoppy maltiness as well. Not bad at all.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 2, 2005
Pours coppery with an off white head. Smells of grapefuit and pine. Taste is on the watery side with some exaggerated orange extract elements. Bland and boring.

madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 15, 2005
Bottle, pours light amber orange color with thin white head with some bubbles. Aroma is slight citrus hoppiness with some malty sweetness. Mild hop flavor, citrus. Definitely more malt than what I’m used to in a Pale. Flavor is fairly mild and tame. Thin and light mouthfeel. Finishes dry and bitter. If you are looking for an easy drinking Pale Ale, this is definitely it.

FoolishMortal (989) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 7, 2005
12oz. bottle. Dark orange-yellow with a small white head. Grassy, citrusy hop aroma with some malt sweetness. Cascade hop family citrus and resin characters. Residual fruitiness and bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel is light medium and fairly crisp.

hezron (610) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 7, 2005
Bottle, on the Island of Kauai. Lightly fruity, citrus aroma with a hint of minerals. Amber-orange with a thin, but lasting off-white head. Soft hop flavor with fruity hints, I want to say pineapple, but is that because I’m in Hawaii? Well balanced, enough malt to make it interesting. Medium-light body that feels fairly substantial for what it is.

12oz bottle, packaged on Sep 14 05. Orange/amber hue, slight white head diminishes...light carbonation. Sweet aroma of malt, a touch carmel, and orangey citrusy hops...a touch tropical? Middle of the road for bitterness in a pale...nice ligering mix of fruit and malt...on tap & in the bottle, this has been a solid pale ale while in HI...almost candied orange finish...quite enjoyable.
