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.

Floaties of yeast in suspension on a pale amber canvus with some sticky lacing and foamy looking light head. The aroma is musky with some light hops, diacytel and a funky malt profile. The flavor has a cloying dry sweetness followed by a sandpaper layer of hops that scratch over trying to balance. Full bodied in a bad way with a finish like that Orange cleaner that Billy Mays sells. Could be a little better crafted to me.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 25, 2004
Slightly cloudy amber whit a thin creamy white head. Some lacing. Small hop profile, some malts. Nicely balanced. The flavor is pretty good. A nice hop character with a great malt backing. Citrus as well. Some lemon. A bit piney. Nice. A bitter finish to an all right pale.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 12, 2004
Lightly hazed amber color with a silk off white head. Only a small amount of lace. Ver light aromas. Maybe my nose is not working tonight. Hints of light rose petals and mild pale malt. Not bad, I just need more. Light floral and fruitt malt flavors. Peaches and cream come to mind. Smooth and rye slick feel. Finish has a mild dry pecan flavor and a nice dry caramel linger.

Reid (1905) - Salem, Oregon, USA - APR 11, 2004
My second beer from this brewer tonight..they seem to have appeared on the Salem market only this week. served in a 12 oz brown longneck. Nice enough amber/copper coloured ale..with a rather large frothy white head..that goes fast but there is some gorgeous lacing. the aroma is pleasant mainlly spicy ( Cascade?) hops..fresh., The taste is rather laid back,maybe what I should expect from Hawaii, its well balanced between the malts and some nice yet understated hopping.. Nice and very smooth on the tongue. Good drinking pale rather in the English style as opposed to the usual NW pale.

This one looks and tastes like a good quality lager. Golden color with a medium white head that quickly disipates. The aroma is lacking but the little I could pick up was malt and some herbalness. Light bodied with sweet malt flavors and a very mild hop finish. A nice beer.

DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAR 28, 2004
Quite a decent dark pale ale. I'd certainly prefer it to that silly Sierra Nevada swill. This was the best of the Kona series I tried. I didn't really like the Longboard Lager or the Big Wave Golden Ale, but this one was good, thank heavens. It still hosts a slight skunkiness to it in its taste and a mustiness in its smell, but easily retains its quaffability.

bb (6858) - Alamo, California, USA - MAR 18, 2004
Draft. This is a good balanced beer. Dark amber with a thin white head. Malts back up the citrus hops. There's a slight grassy flavor, and a little creaminess to it. Nice and drinkable.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2004 My friend Sandy smuggled this back from the island in her luggage - How cool is she!?!?!? Pours a bright sun-shiny gold/orange, some head, average lacing. Citrusy hops pop out of this, sweet malts surf along my tongue. This is nice and I'd really like to drink it while lounging on the beach
