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.

Pint @ Harrisons. Ok aroma, sweet, biscuity cardboard, minor citrus. Clean brownish orange color, good head & lace. Bitter sweet flavor. citrusy grassy bitterness, a cardboard streak that dulls flavor, lite tofffe maltiness. medium body, creamy mouthfeel, bitter finish. Eh, ok, no pronounced citrus/floral for me though, kind of avarage at best.

Second taste of Hawaii beer I got to enjoy last week. I have to say that this wasn’t too bad, but then again wasn’t that good either. Aroma is pretty sweet, almost too much in my opinion, the hops come in at the last moment to save it. The pour is nothing special, yellow orange with a thin off-white head. Taste is again sweet of malts up front with a punch of hops just in the nick of time to save it from abomination. This was ok, not too bad after a long day in the sun.

Bottle from the Trump hotel is Las Vegas. Pours a light amber with a thick white head. The aroma is full of citrus hops and some caramel. The taste was basically a nice balance between a caramel malt and smooth hops, some bitterness in the finish. Very drinkable.

Pours dark amber, clear, with thin white lacey head. Aroma is mellow and roasted. Flavor begins with a nice kick of roasted malt then develops into a very nice hop and citrus finish. Overall a good pale ale, I’d have it again.

Bottle. Pretty amber with an inch of soft white head. Smells of orange... really, orange, not grapefruit or pine. Flavors of orange, hops, brown malts. Finishes with a bitter orange peel. If this is a "Hawaiian" style, I’d like to try more... because it’s good.

A hazy amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma is sweet grassy and malty combined with a light note of caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of caramel and lesser notes of hops.

BelgianBeerGal (3302) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUL 25, 2008
Draught in Destin, FL. Pours clear copper/bronze colour with a foamy off white head. Nice citrus hop aroma. Pleasant flavour than is not overpowering with bitterness. Really a nice change from all the macro beers available in the beach/bar settings.

Shared by turdferguson. Pours a clear copper with a two finger sustaining creamy light orange head. The smell is clean and citrusy, sweet, light hops, subdued. The flavor is lightly hoppy, a bit sweet, earthy herbal hops, a bit sweet. Clean bitter palate. Easy to drink.

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.

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.
