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.

Not being a huge fan of pale ale, I was immensely surprised by how much I liked this beer. Pours orangish-amber with just a touch of cloudiness. The thick beige head leaves nice lacing. The aroma is primarily citrus and hops, but there are notes of malt. Very smooth and a bit oily on the palate. Very nice flavor with a superb mix of hoppy bitterness and malty smoothness. Citrus and bread flavors lead to a smooth finish. Very nice brew.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2008
On tap at Lagerhaus (Tampa, FL). Pours a clear dark amber color with a thick and creamy two-finger head that settled slowly. Good head retention and glass lacing. Aroma is strongly of citrus, most notably grapefruit, hops, some bread and malt. Flavor is sour ripe fruit, hops, grapefruit, some spice. Light to medium body with a hoppy, quick finish.

Cybercat (3734) - Georgia, USA - JUL 19, 2008
Pours a dark, transparent orange-brown with a fine-bubbled off-white head. Aroma is not strong but appetizing, malty with touches of spice and fruit. Flavor is rich, mainly malty with spicy hints and a nice hoppy edge. Mouthfeel is edgy so it seems to dance on the tongue.

Deep amber brown pour with a good foamy white head that sticks around. Nice caramel malt and citrus hop aroma. Very refreshing, well balanced flavor. This is a seriously good six-pack pale ale!

sebletitje (7134) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 11, 2008
Pours orange with a good thick white head. Aroma of roasted malt, taste is sugary/caramel malt, with a note of spices (maybe light touch of ginger or cinnamon) and citrus. Slightly hoppy, well balanced.

Bottle from the grocery. Wow, I wasn’t expecting this much. This is a crisp, hop-forward APA that finishes cleanly and tastes delightful going down. An "A" session beer.

Very good!!! A perfect balance of malt and hops (aren’t APA’s great?). Also has a nice deep, dark amber/coppery color. Highly recommended!

daknole (10035) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 8, 2008
This is a pretty decent pale ale. Not usually my favorite style I enjoyed the nice amberish color wtih a small head. Malt and hops are present in this surprisingly tasty beer.

junon (426) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Wow. Lots of colour in this one. Sweet hop aroma. Surprisingly clingy palate. This is a true pale ale with just the right amount of alcohol taste for a Hawaiian original. Solid release from Kona.

reddish pour with no head. taste of hops, small aroma of grass and a meh palate. Poured much darker than expected from a so called pale ale.
