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.

transparent bronze, thin head, minimal carbonation. The bitterness comes up front and overmatched the malt. finish is a little acidic. quick finish.

bottle at home ... copper ... fruity hop nose little spice ... toffee malts nicly balanced ... with fruity spicy hops ... disapointing bitter linger but none the less satisfying and a suprise.

boFNjackson (4185) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 1, 2007
Bottle... Poured an amber color with an easy forming head. This beer had too much of an emphasize on malt. More like an amber ale to me. It was ok, but I need more hops.

Nate (3806) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2007
Bottled. Light dusty grain aroma, with a bit of old paper and some pear skin. Mild butter. Amber-orange clear with quickly dissipating head. Watery body with medium-high carbonation. Starts rather dry with neutral fruit malt sweetness, a bit of light brown sugar, and sort of a malt liquor undertone. Light bitter nutty finish with dry after. Sweet and biscuity.

MrBunn (2528) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2007
Bottle. Fairly dark amber color... amost brown with a half finger of head on top. Aromas are of caramel malt, pineapple and some citrus hops. Flavor tends to the malty/caramel side of the specturm that is present in the nose... and while the hops are there, they don’t come through crisply. Very nicely balanced, especially given the malt heavy body.

We drove up the west coase of the Big Island looking for a place to eat and came across the Kona Pub and Brewery. The food was good, and the beer.... This was good on tap. I also tried a bottle at a Side Street Inn in Honolulu. Not bad.

murawski (160) - USA - JUL 13, 2007
Bottle, straight from Hawaii. Very minimal aroma; standard amber/copper appearance. Flavor starts with some spicy/piney hops, but the finish is flat. Palate was a bit rough for my liking (maybe a character of the dry hops). Overall, about average for a pale ale (although I’m picky when it comes to this variety).

12 oz. bottle - Pours a clear copper color with a one finger thick off white head. Nice lacing. Soft, tiny bubble carbonation. Aroma is caramel malt and light floral hops. Flavor is sweet malt and light hops. Medium body. A little more malt than I expected. I nice, easy drinking PA.
