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.

(Draft) Orangish yellow with a small white head. Malt with a fresh hopped almost honey aroma. Hops on the tongue with a bit of graininess. Some citrus building at the end but with very little aftertaste. I would drink this if I were in Hawaii or just wishing I were.

(Great American Beer Festival 2004) Straight forward, but good APA. Very drinkable.

Those used to a bitter pale ale will call this one weak. The hoppy flavor is mild, and blends with the malt for a tame, subtle peppery flavor.

badgerben (4362) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 15, 2004
Burnt Beer Night: Gold color with a medium head. Quite a peppery aroma. Obvious hop taste, but not overwhelming. It seems to be well backed up with malt. Nicely done!

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 11, 2004
Deep gold color with hints of orange and a white head. Aroma of citrus hops and toasty malt. A big, intergrated citrus hop flavor in a sweet, orangey, carmelized malt. The bitterness is limited but a nice balancing acidity that extends throughout the palate. Rather full-bodied for style but very pleasant.

Floral hoppy aroma. The color is nut brown with a thin off-white head. Orang peel flavor of hops. Medium refreshing palate.

I had this at the Great Arizona Beer Festival in Phoenix. A light amber ale, average with a bit of hops.

PorterPounder (5195) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2006 Rerate Much better this time around - more grapefruity citrusiness and sprucey aroma - thicker mouthfeel Original 2.5 Fresh lake water aroma, dark golden appearance, little to no head. Flavor is slightly tinny and worn out; oxidized somewhat - may be suffering somewhat from the journey from Hawaii. Slight malty aftertaste, but overall lacking in any real substance. Had to go all the way to Alaska to get a beer from Hawaii!

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2005 Bottle poured a medium amber with a good head that lasted and great lacing. very slight hopps aroma, Taste was ok some hoppy flavor and a little bitter at the finish. not bad at all.
