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.

On tap at Kona’s main brewery. Not a bad pale ale. This along with Mehana’s Pale Ale ended up being my beer of choice for a week on the Big Island. Not a bad choice, strong offering in Pale Ale category.

Pours hazy deep coppery with 1-finger off-white head. Aroma of bready caramel malt, hops, tropical fruit, and citrus. Tastes hoppy, piney, with some tropical fruit, including pineapple, some black peppery notes, and some citrus.

savitska (163) - Smyrna, Georgia, USA - SEP 20, 2006
A polynesian beer that tastes like many of the beers from the West Coast, right down to the hops.

12oz. Bottle: Floral hop nose. Hint of grapefruit in the aroma. Also a little berry scent. Not malt aroma. Amber in color. Big, creamy & frothy off-white head. Head lasted. Good lacing. Clear. Sparkling. Flavor is a bit hoppy, but well balanced with malts that have an earthy flavor. Hop flavor is a bit generic and not too bitter; floral. I would not say it has a "pronounced hop flavor." Lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Finish is average length and a little bitter and earthy. Overall, a solid APA.

IndianaRed (2768) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 4, 2006
Bottle pours a medium amber witha small off white head. Spotty lacing. Aroma is of mild malts and a little spicy hops. Flavor is similar. Enough hop bitterness, but not much real flavor. Decent feel and moderately carbonated. Pleasant lingering bitterness.

Nothing to write home about here. Had this in bottle at Disney’s Polynesian resort. Deep reddish brown with a tan head, this brew served up a slightly spciy hop aroma with a solid backbone. While it seemed to do everything "right", it was simply lacking in any character that would make it stand out from the crowd. Think an Anchor Steam with less earthiness.
