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.

Had this on tap at Walt Disney World’s Polynesian Luau - so I must admit the rating is a little biased by the good times. Strong caramel malt base, medium bodied. Really well hopped - almost IPA in essence. Grapefruit bite without the sting. Well built ale.

Poured amber with a small fluffy off white head. Aroma of hops. Good balance of hops and malt.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 13, 2007
On tap at San Diego Brewing Co. Pours with an orange-amber body topped by a thin, white head with a little bit of lacing. It’s slightly sweet and malty with a slight toffee note and very little hops. There is a slight grainey note that is not really appetizing. Medium bodied and smooth.

Skyview (5310) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 11, 2007
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at the Papago Brewing Company tavern in Phoenix, AZ. Pours a clear copper amber brew with a fast dissolving white head that leaves behind a fine film and white ring with some spotty lacing. Aroma of light citrus zest, some caramel malt, a touch of peach and light pine. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated with a citrus zest with caramel malt flavor. Finish is semi-bitter, with a sweet grapefruit zest aftertaste.

Had this in Orlando, surprised to see Hawaiian beer in the supermarket. Peach, bourbon, grainy aroma. Sweet initial palate then hoppy! Great! Copper color, min head, nice lacing.

Dogbrick (9446) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2007
Bottle from Albertson’s in Tehachapi, CA. The beer is a clear amber color with a medium off-white head that has decent retention. Stringy lacing. Lightly floral hops aroma with some grass and malt. Medium, smooth body with a moderately hoppy character. Grainy malt, flowers and some citrus flavors are present. The finish is dry and hoppy with a slight citrus aftertaste. Above average overall.

Fantomasus (283) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 5, 2007
Pleasant surprise, a nice solid pale ale. Very refreshing, light, well balanced. Give it a shot, you won’t regret it.

Dragonfly1 (498) - Colorado, USA - DEC 4, 2007
Bottle- Marriott Waikoloa bar. First night on the big island and needed a refreshing drink after 12 hours on a plane. The Fire Rock delivered. Nice deep copper / amber color with a floral aroma hitting right away. Taste was much less hoppy than what I expected. Was more floral & citrus. Well balanced.
