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.

(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.

I first had this in Hawaii (was a bit surprised to see a microbrewed beer from Hawaii). VEry nice example of how an APA can be well balanced. Light amber in color, nice hoppy aroma. Starts sweet, middle has some nice hop flavors and the finish is dry with a crisp hoppy bitterness. Very nice!
