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.

Pretty sweet for a pale ale. Hops are defined but not really balancing the sweetness out. Drinkable, enjoyable, and not too bad.

Good beer. I haven’t been that impressed with Kona to this point but enjoyed this one. Comparable to other solid pale ales. Light brown color with a thin head. Slight hop aroma - pleasant and fragrant. Sweet malty body very pleasing to the palate. Drinkable and appropriately complex for this style.

This one knocked out Deschutes’ Mirror Pond as my favorite American pale ale. Bitter, but more balanced without the syrup-y aftertaste.

not a bad pale ale per se. decent malt profile a bit like caramel. decent hop profile along the grapefruit line. nice copper color indicitive of decent. refreshing, a touch velvety with adequate carbonation. a little extra fruit punch in the finish with a hint of bitters.

Excellent hop aroma and bitterness throughout. Malt profile held up fine. I’m thinking that this would be an IPA if it were brewed in BC.

Had this on tap at Walt Disney World’s Polynesian Luau - so I must admit the rating is a little biased by the good times. Strong caramel malt base, medium bodied. Really well hopped - almost IPA in essence. Grapefruit bite without the sting. Well built ale.

Poured amber with a small fluffy off white head. Aroma of hops. Good balance of hops and malt.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 13, 2007
On tap at San Diego Brewing Co. Pours with an orange-amber body topped by a thin, white head with a little bit of lacing. It’s slightly sweet and malty with a slight toffee note and very little hops. There is a slight grainey note that is not really appetizing. Medium bodied and smooth.

Skyview (5464) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 11, 2007
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at the Papago Brewing Company tavern in Phoenix, AZ. Pours a clear copper amber brew with a fast dissolving white head that leaves behind a fine film and white ring with some spotty lacing. Aroma of light citrus zest, some caramel malt, a touch of peach and light pine. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated with a citrus zest with caramel malt flavor. Finish is semi-bitter, with a sweet grapefruit zest aftertaste.

Had this in Orlando, surprised to see Hawaiian beer in the supermarket. Peach, bourbon, grainy aroma. Sweet initial palate then hoppy! Great! Copper color, min head, nice lacing.
