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.

Orange color. Medium head. Aroma is malty and floral. A medium bodied pale ale. Malts are fruity and mild. Hops are grapefruity. Mild flavored pale ale. Refreshing and drinkable. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

ON TAP at various outlets in Hawaii--discovered this one on a recent trip to the 50th state and was mightily impressed. Pours a medium copper color with a nice, long-lasting head. Palate is almost creamy. This is a "full-bodied" beer with plenty of depth. Well-defined maltiness at first, followed up quickly by a full foray of hops. I also sampled bottled versions of this beer and they did not quite live up to the expectations set by the beer out of the tapper. The bottled version doesn't have quite the depth of flavor and also seems more artificially carbonated. However, it's still a very nice brew that I'd buy if it became available at our local beer outlets.

(24Mar2003--draft at brewery) Wins the "most timid without any major faults" award of the Kona brews IMO. 5.7% ABV, 35 IBU. Pours light copper. Hoppy aroma. Moderately sour (citric), moderately bitter.

Amber-red colour with good hop notes in the aroma and flavour. Crisp mouthfeel, very refreshing and thirst-quenching without being watery.

Definitely a nice fresh crisp pale ale. Probably would like to try it out of the tap. The more I drank it though the less I like it.

Nice hops aroma...sweet, bitter, malty, citrusy. The flavor was very full...malty sweet with a hops kick. Pretty orange color with a thick white head. The feel is thick (suprising) and creamy. From the feel, it's almost like a stout. Of course it tastes nothing like a stout, but this is a great APA.

This was deiniitely the best beer that I tasted while in Hawaii. It actually had some decent hop flavour and bite.

Reddish gold with crisp white head. Taste of floral hops and sweet malt. Overall, an ok local brew, drunk in Hawaii.
