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.

Thanks Chuck. August 4th, 2006 vintage. The beer pours to a nice glowing dark amber body with a tall fluffy off-white head. The aroma is light. Some pine hops and light palate malts. The flavor is really light. One could say... a pine hopped pilsner. Light pale malts in this one. So light on the palate the pine hops are easy and refreshing. Pretty basic, but very nicely balanced.

poured a dark copper pour w/ a nice off white head and soem decent lacing. The aroma could be described best as pretty weak, some very light pine hop scents and a iny touch of malt and some hints of a weak grain. Palate is avg or maybe a little above, but not enough so to warrant more than a middle score w/ it’s easy body, and light coating. The flavor though was quite nice, a very easy to drink APA that would go great cold on a hot day. There is some nice pine and grapefruit w/ a decent amount of carmel. Not to shabby.

Draft at the brew pub 11/2/2006. Poured a dark copperywith a thint off-white head. Aroma is mild and balanced with some hops noticeable. Sweet mild hoppy flavor with an over riding malt body. Bitter finish was subdued. Smooth and rich with a medium body, well made.

A very drinkable, if unspectacular, APA here. 12 oz bottle pours a hazy copper body topped by a small offwhite head. Nice lacing. Aroma is subdued citrusy grapefruit with a note of pine. Caramel malt is in the background. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Taste is mostly grapefruit and pine cone hop bitterness with a barely adequate caramel malt backbone. A respectable effort that would be most quaffable in the Islands.

In a recent trip to Kauai I was at the Sheraton and they had Kona Fire Rocks on tap. What a wonderful brew. It was super to drink this fine pale ale while watching the sun sink into the Pacific Ocean. The head was cream in color and the deep amber was very inviting. The hops were just right for an APA. The finish was smoooth with some bitterness. The citrus flavors and malt overtones were all in cync.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2007 Another beer that I sampled in Kauai and again in Kailua on vacation and enjoyed. It has a hearty amber-red color with a bubbly white head and is somewhat cloudy. The aroma has earthy and citrus hops, some grainy hops, and some caramel malt; maybe a bit floral. It was a sweet taste with a barely bitter finish. The body was wet and had a full texture with only mild carbonation and fizzyness. The beer was crisp and had a bit of a spicy kick, great for the islands!

On tap in the sports bar portion of the Gameworks in Vegas. Deep orange amber with a creamsicle head. Floral and cedar aromas, rich malt palate with generous hops. Very flavourful.

Enjoyed a pint of this one on draught. Pours to a bright, amber color, with a bright, white head, and a moderate carbonation. The nose on this beer is very nice, with god citrus/grapefruit aromas, paired with some pale and sweet malt aroma. The palate is firm, with good sweet and pale malt flavor, with some fruity esters, and light grapefruit hop flavor. This beer finishes with some good biscuit and sweet malt up front, and ends with some good, tangy citrus/grapefruit hop bite that slightly lingers. Well done, balanced, very drinkable pale ale. A pint after pinter, this beer is a good session brew.

A quaffable beer, butterscotch is the prevalent aroma and carries throughout. Nice but not xtraordinary. A good session ale.

Draft - A deep amber colored beer with a slim white head. Sweet aroma with moderate hop presence. I enjoyed this beer, though it was a bit sweeter than most.
