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.

I bought this beer just to acquire another state (Hawaii) and really didn’t care if was good or not. However, it was a right choice. The head was frothy as opposed to foamy, tan, and two fingers deep. Falling away to just a thin layer, underneath was an orange/brown body giving off an aroma equally divided beltween hops and malt. Taste was mainly the malt with undernotes of hop. Mouthfeel was decent and the finish belied more malt sweetness on top of the hops.

Poured a deep amber color with a small head that stayed throughout. Light grassy aroma with good flavors of toffee and hops. Not anything special, but this is definitely a solid APA.

This amber pour was very crisp and refreshing for a warm summer day. Good balance in the flavor throughout. I am glad they distribute this on the east coast now!

On tap at The Yard House in SD. Pours a dark amber with an ecru-colored head. This has a really atractive citrus/evergreen/spruce like aroma. Nice grapefruit rind flavor that is mild, not palate crunching. I like.

Location:I remember getting this on tap at a bar in NYC one time, and I know I’ve had it others, this rating is from 9/08

Overall Impression: Half decent pale ale, drinkable but not spectacular.

6 pack bottled on May 29, 2009. I was expecting a little more from this given the surprising drinkability of their lager. The aroma is leafy and grassy with very low bitterness. This could use more hops and still be in the realm of light, tasteful APA’s. The flavor has more emphasis on the malt again, with generic sweetness. The finish is slightly sour and bitterness comes across as tame citrus and a spiced note that reminds me of watered down 420 ale.

I’m wondering if this was a mis-pour at the IPA festival at Lucky Baldwins. Sure did strike me as a Belgian beer - sweet caramel with very little hop presence at all. Floaty yeasty thingies hanging around in the bottom of the glass. I’m going to have to try this one again.

Bottle. Hazy amber. minimal head. Nice soft woody hop nose. Woody light hop flavour with a dry hoppy finish.

3fourths (8962) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 7, 2009
Bottle. Chill haze adds a haziness to a caramel orange colored body with a small off-white ring of carbonation on top. Disgusting oxidized crystal malt immediately puts me off. Some dried citrus fruit hop notes are present but this beer is pretty much consumed by crystal. Chewy texture, medium bodied, somewhat chunky and messy on the palate. Flavors of caramel malt and peanut butter don’t score any points. Mild to medium oxidation but it absolutely ruins the beer. Terrible.

cprochak (590) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2009
On tap at Taphouse. Pours clear gold/orange with tan head. Mild floral hops. Good hops flavor, but a little bitter,finiish. A bit fizzy.
