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.

Poured an orange color with a slight bit of brown. The head was decent initially, subsided, and laced ok. The aroma was caramel malts and pine plus citrus hops. Flavor was an assertive malt backbone (caramel and musty cedar) covered by a pine, resinous, and citrus-like hop presence. The hops didn’t dominate like the hopheads would prefer, but for this hop appreciative, but not hops-overboard boy, it was just fine (this isn’t an IPA afterall).

12 oz bottle: Deep amber w/a lasting light beige head. Herbal hoppy aroma @ first, then a a strong caramel malt character w/ toasty malt. Lighty fruitiness; Some iced tea leaf aroma as it warms. Well balanced flavor w/ herbal hop & caramel malt. Light fruitiness fom alcohol and hops: Medium toasty malt flavor w/a semi sweet finish & herbal hop aftertaste. Light med. body, med. carb., & a hint of alcohol warmth. A decent & flavorful, if not run of the mill pale ale!

Bottle: Could identify the "Hawaiian Style" from other Pale Ales, still quite decent. Refreshing nice taste, good body.

Doesn’t really smell like much. Flavor was thin with a mild amount of hops. Just okay, but not great.

(bottle) Little head, the colour is red but could be deeper. Nice aroma with hops, more Amarillo-like than the typical Cascade found in most APAs. Must be the Galena hop that makes the aroma such smooth. The flavor is well balanced with the hops giving it a nice depth. Too bad APAs are so hard to find in Finland.

jake65 (2629) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 1, 2006
Color is darker than expected, a solid amber with a thin off-white head. Smell is fairly faint, but hints at citrus and some floral hoppiness. Taste features a solid hop whallop up front, finishes smooth with a sweet malt and light citrus feel. Simple taste, but well done.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - APR 28, 2006
Color is deep copper. Yields a shallow slikened froth. Aroma is malty with a hint of fresh biscuits. Medium to full nectar weight. Just rolls of the tongue. Good caramel and fruit flavors with a slight hoppy character. No citrus at all. Very mellow. Well ballanced. Highly recommended.

iowaherkeye (2691) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - APR 25, 2006
Deleted my rating - again! Pours an orange copper with small white head. Aroma of floral and grapefruit hops, some caramel malts, and some metallic notes. Tastes of floral hops, followed by some caramel malts, then a little malt sweetness, and ends with a very slight bitterness. Slightly above mediocre. I remember hearing or reading something great about this beer at some point, and am a little disappointed. Being in Florida I thought this was a great find, but I guess not.

Tap at Gameworks LV, NV. Poured with a thin white head and really nice, bold copper color. Aroma was of citrusy hops and the flavor was very similar and straightforward. Mouthfeel made it very refreshing. This could easily be your everyday brew for hanging out on the deck.
