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.

Draft. Decent pale ale, but nothing special. The flavor is weak and the body lacks umph. there is just not much going on with this brew.

Bottle. Dark yellow to orange color, thin head. Tast was surprisingly good, with some sweet notes up front followed by a nice bitter hoppiness. The bitter backnotes were very nice. The overall beer was much better than I had been expecting!

Rusty (1545) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - DEC 5, 2008
On tap at Dukes Waikiki Hawaii. Pours a nice golden orange with a small white head. ARoma of hops, and malt. Flavor is much the same with just enough hoppiness to be put into the category of decent IPA in my book. Nice IPA.

Bottle. I stole this from my sister. I do not think she has realized it. Color of amber with a short lasting head. Aroma of grass, earth, caramel, fruit and apple. Flavor was solid. Caramel and toffee, with some biscuit, apple and a light hop finish. Solid taste for the style, but what is that really saying.

I’m quite surprised by the high ratings here. I had this on tap in Honolulu over Thanksgiving 2008. Pour is amber orange with nice nose of caramel and flowers. That’s where it ends. Mine tasted like it had soup bullion in it. Thick and fakey tasting. I didn’t for it at all.
