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.

Amber beer with a white head. Aroma is grapefruit. Flavor has a nice hop bitterness and a good balance of malt. Finish is grapefruit, starting bitter and finishing slightly sweet. Very nice american pale ale.

12 oz. bottled May 23, 08. Clear copper with a small head that lasts. Grain, toasted nut and honey aromas. Flavors of bitter nut, cocoa and a sour citrus twang as well. Light medium body is mostly smooth and roasty-dry.

I’ve been wanting to try this beer since I started seeing it on the shelf. Cloudy coppery orange in appearance. Thick soapy head. Slight aroma of herbs, flowers and fresh cut grass. Crisp malty flavor that finishes with a slight roasted taste on the tounge. Overall it’s easy drinking but still retains some complexity. I’m hooked.

TChrome (1447) - Bedford, Texas, USA - SEP 12, 2008
Beer pours attractive copper color with a modestly retained off white head. Aroma is lightly citrus hops with just a bit of cereal maltiness. Flavor follows the aroma with an initial hoppy begining then just a bit of malty sweetness. Pretty tasty.

Bottle. Refreshing light golden brown ale. Not sure why people call it boring as we found it to have a malty character that neither distracts nor is overbearing. Much better cold than room-temp. Another very good summer time evening beer.

Aroma is a very pleasant citrus scent. Orangish-Amber color, almost no head...bottle is beautiful. Good flavor for a pale ale which is not my favorite type of beer...not too overpowering like Sierra Nevada. Starts bitter, gets a little sweet...leaves a weird sensation on the tounge. Like most pale ales...its not too easy on the palate...but this is better than most...however it did leave a weird aftertaste in my throat. Overall I liked it...it’s one of the better pale ales that I’ve had, probably a bit better than the Sam Adams but not as good as Sweetwater 420. As a bottle collector, I loved the bottle.

buzzoven (376) - JAPAN - SEP 18, 2008
Bready, yeasty smell from the tip of the glass. Not much of an exciting or tantalizing head or colour to speak of. Taste was slightly piney/grassy...very slight grapefruit hints in the mouthfeel. Finish was truly weird...it was practically invisible except for this slight tingle on the tongue. This one left me confused.

12oz bottle: pours amber brown with white head, aroma malty and not much else flavor is also pretty simple barley and a little bit of hops and pretty watered down.

On tap, pours a decent light copper with a finger thick, cream colored head. The nose is clean bitter hops and sweet malt, as is the flavor. Very easy drinking

nuplastikk (5032) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 22, 2008
12oz bottle. Tan-amber color, highly filtered. Mild malty aroma. Bland malt profile, with a slight hop balance. Mellow and easy drinking. Nothing special.
