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.

Bottle. Amber, quite nice offwhite head. Quite fresh hoppy aroma, mixed with malt. Malty flavor with some citrus and hops. A decent ale.

malrubius (2519) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - FEB 28, 2008
12 ounce bottle in pint glass. Clear copper/amber with lasting ring and some lace. Mild fresh hop aroma. Very mild initial sweet fruitiness and abrupt dry finish, seems to be missing most everything in between. Medium body and medium-high carb which adds to astringency/bite. Drinkable for a trendy beer, that tries to market itself as if it were from Hawaii, though on the mainland it’s brewed in Oregon.

Nice reddish-orange color. Solid off-white head. I like the way this beer doesn’t hit you over the head with hops, which too many pale ales do. Hops don’t dominate the malt, and hints of...cinamon? Reasonably complex taste, yet goes down smooth.

Beershine (5219) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 25, 2008
Sampled @ Hallandale beer fest (bottle). Hazy muddled gold color. Nose is too mild. The flavors are crisp and bold, some tropical fruits that finish with a clean, hoppy aftertaste. Good soft palate.

marcus (8906) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 24, 2008
This copper ale poured with a fluffy beige head. The flavor is mild and malty, with a slightly bitter hop finish, and it goes down easily.

asedzie (786) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 19, 2008
Bottle pours hazy copper with thin off-white head. Aroma is citrus fruity- pineapple, passionfruit, orange - with a touch of pineyness. Caramel, grains, lightly sweet, slightly prickly and resiny hop bitterness in the finish. Bitterness and some burn linger a bit in the aftertaste. Consisently good APA for sessions.

sickassmick (228) - Concord, California, USA - FEB 18, 2008
I have to admit I’m drinking this warm. Pour is cloudy brown orange with small sudsy head. No lacing to speak of. The nose is strong alcohol with some woody notes, caramel malt, hops at a distance. The taste is heavy malt and the mouth feel is medium. The beer is nearly absent of hops compared to a lot of pales. The finish is sweet and watery. Probably a good enough beer when its cold. Not something I would buy, not something I would turn down. And now I know how to say "waves" in hawaiian. cheers!

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - FEB 14, 2008
Some nice citrus on the nose. Darker burnt orange, some haze. Nice balance, good bitterness, maybe a little sweet for a pale, but in a good way. Aromatic long finish.

BOLTZ7555 (3014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 5, 2008
This is a really good, session pale. The faint hop aroma doesn’t do this beer justice...beautiful burnt orange that is perfectly clear with minimal cloud-white head. This beer is extremely clean and well-balanced. I think the description is deceiving in that I wouldn’t place the mouthfeel at "medium to full-bodied" but it’s a very good, easy drinkin’ beer.

Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 4, 2008
Pours a light amber/copper color with a small white head. Aroma is citrusy hops and sweet malt. Taste is the same but a tad bit light. Still pretty good.
