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.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2008 12 oz bottle in Maui and on tap at the brewery on Hawaii. Light copper pour with small white head. Hop and caramel malt aroma. Taste is malty with some citrus hop flavors. Finishes with a hoppy bitterness. Medium bodied mouthfeel.

pours a clear amber with a medium size off-white head. smell - grass, roasted nuts, hint of hops taste - light, watery, bit sweet, some nuts, not much in the flavor department.

wxman (1535) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2013 On tap at the St. Louis Art Festival. Pours an orange amber color with a full rocky white head. Aroma of sweet caramel and hop flowers. Delicious pale and toasted malt sweetness along with a dry hopped bitterness and slight citrus flavor. Hopped more like an IPA, but very good and well balanced.

I thought this one was pretty good. Copper color and a nice, floral, hoppy aroma. The hops in the flavor was just right for a pale ale. I would buy this one again.

Poured a hazy copper color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, pine, spices, and floral hops. Taste of pine and citrus, caramel malt, grapefruit, spices, and a dry finish.

A wonderful beer when you don’t want to be bulldozed by an arrogant bastard. I love this stuff and I love the AB as well. There is no "best" beer. In the right time and place, they all have their merits. ~S

Pours a nice copper color with minimal head. Slightly roasted malt aroma. Nice hint of roasted malt in the taste. I know it says a pronounced hop flavor, but I did not really get that. An easy drinking beer, but nothing special.

Tried this at the beach in Wildwood and it was a nice alternative to the other beer’s at Urie’s Restaurant...I would drink this again.

Bottle: Fiery amber, clear, large foamy off-white head, a few rings of lacing, no noticeable carbonation.   Soft hop nose, slight citrus, minor grainy malts.   Pale citrusy bite on the tongue, very minor hop presense.   Not grainy or astringent like I thought it would be based on its hint on the nose.   It is actually on the sweeter side, sweet citrus rind in fact.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Somewhat light for a pale ale, in terms of Hops.   Does have a slight bite to it, but its moreso sweet.   Decent, but when I think of Pale Ale I think of light IPA, which this one was very light.   Tiz okay, but perhaps a bit too sweet and not hopped up enough for me.
