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.

Bottle from Total Wine. My first beer from Hawaii. Pours out a nice orange color without much of a head. Smell is sweet and somewhat hoppy with some nice hoppy smells too. Some citrus flavors too, little bit of orange. Taste is smooth and easy to drink. Something that you could consume in large amounts on a summer day. Not bad stuff really..

doubleo (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 14, 2008
On-tap at Jake’s Del Mar. Pours amber with a thin white head, some lace. Smells of mellow, sweet hoppiness, some malts as well. Tastes citrusy sweet, not so much hoppy citrus, just citrus. Some caramelly malt flavors and a bit metallic as well. Medium body, crisp carbonation. Tasty

elihapa (1525) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - MAY 13, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2009 Medium bodied, w/ ashy, malt flavor and a balanced hop bill. Above average overall with interesting complexity, but something about the flavor still tastes a bit chalky-smoky to me. At least its unique.

On draft at my local BW3’s. Nice smooth pale ale with a good hoppy balance. Crisp and slightly citrusy. Very good overall.

Beer pours an Amber color. Has a flowery/hoppy nose. A medium light mouth feel. Good hop flavor. A drinkable Pale.

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - MAY 5, 2008
Along with some citrus there is a definite caramel edge to the nose and palate. The palate shows some dryness but also a sweet midpalate with a touch of chocolate. Nice beer.

SudsMcDuff (5934) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - MAY 5, 2008
Light cappuccino foam coloured head : lacing is pretty good, average for a APA ... light golden colour .. light rust hop pine smell ... taste is nice, maybe a bit muddled .... "if you find a cheaper lion, you must be in africa" ... the 6 % is quite well hidden so its worth a try but there are better APA’s...

Rogueone (506) - I F&ckin’ hate those guys from, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2008
12 oz bottle: Pours a very light brown/amber, with very thin white head. Smelled a little citrus, a little carmel. Medium bitter aftertaste, lingering hops on the palate. Refreshing but not overall too much else to say about it.
