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: Clear copper color with a fizzy, cream colored head. Lots of bubbles rising to the top that maintain the small, lasting head. The aromas were pretty mild for a pale ale - floral hops with a metallic hint. The taste is lacking sorely - mainly tasted like fermented cardboard. It did have a biiter taste, but not the good kind of bitter that is usually enjoyed in a pale ale. The feel was one its better qualities -- not too thin. My opinion: the Hawaiians should leave brewing to the main continent and stick to making Mai Tai’s.

Aurelius (4062) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 14, 2006
A stock APA. Very orange, big head, OK label. Like the lizard. The thing that was most remarkable about this beer was the palate and mouthfeel, which was extremely good. Solid, not overbittered, overbrewed or overhopped. Nice light pine and moderately sweet caramel in the aroma and flavor. Medium acidity. This is a good clue as to why APA became a prominent style -- it’s going back to the roots. Lots of APA’s are formulaic, grotesquely evolved versions of this basic brew. Sturdy, drinkable and solid.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 7, 2006
Draught. Clear copper-orange color with off white head that laced the glass. Flowery hop nose and flavor with a touch of malty sweetness and bitter hop finish.

Draft at Royal Pacific in Orlando. Pours a deep amber color with a medium frothy white head that lasted. Moderate hoppy citrus aroma. Medium body. Same good hoppy citrus flavor with a medium bitter finish. Good drinkable pale ale.

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 7, 2006
Bottle. Golden orange body with a moderate fluffy off white had. Mild citrusy aroma, and pleasant mild orange and caramel malt in the flavour. Average palate. Pleasant but unremarkable. Thanks for sharing Kyle.

kramer (4866) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2006
12 oz bottle, via FlacoAlto. Pours a light copper with a finger sized white head, low carbonation visible. Floral hop aroma over sweet smelling caramel malt background with hints of toffee. Lightly malty base under floral and citrus hop flavors. Sweet finish with an iced tea and moderately bitter hop flavor. Low carbonation, light to medium bodied, but rather average and boring mouthfeel. A decent APA but a little toned down in the hoppiness versus many of my favorites in this category.

Silphium (3161) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 3, 2006
Hazy amber-orange body, thin off-white head. Citrusy, bready, earthy and somewhat bitter aroma. Delicate malt sweetness, with notes of caramel and toast, balance the citrusy, earthy hops finish. Maltier and sweeter than most APAs. Thanks, Hezron.

Pours a deep goldish amber color. Aromas of hops and a touch of wheat. Flavor of big hops, medium body. Dry hop finish and aftertaste.

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.
