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.

A more than compretent Pale Ale. Subdued hops on the nose. Darkish orange hue. Solid malty profile with subtle but satisfying hops in the finish.

obguthr (5421) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAY 21, 2009
Rich caramel malt and pineapple aroma. Dark amber color, clear, no head. Walnut taste. Medium fullness. Clean generic finish with a faint kiss of marigold. Not terribly complex which works for this beer. Tasty, refreshing, and sessionable. Quite a good deal for its price and availability.

ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 21, 2009
2009 Bottle - Pours a dk orange with a medium, lasting white head...aroma is citrusy and clean, hop florals and light malt...flavour is not so great, bitterness on the front that has no malt balance, all I taste is bitterness, no real defining characteristics, maybe some toast and dough..but man, not good...

hopslovin (194) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 17, 2009
Bottle. Copper/amber pour with white head. Malty aroma with slight citrus and spice notes. Not much jumps out with this beer. Slightly heavy on the malt, not much hop presence. Easy drinking sessionable beer with not much going on.

BallyLoser (136) - Redmond, Washington, USA - MAY 17, 2009
Beautiful copper colour. White head. Strong, but not overpowering aroma. Hops were strong, but the right amount. a sweet/citrus finish.

kennydiaz (355) - Manahawkin, New Jersey, USA - MAY 17, 2009
Nice light copper color with a foamy head. Strong citrus taste with a floral aftertaste. This one is very different. I enjoyed it very much but I think would go better on a warm summer day.

Sammy (10783) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2009
Big carbonation was a bit much, but still getting the hops, they did not skimp, and a tad of fruitiness. This would be interesting on cask. Fruity colour with moderate off-white head. Drinkable stuff.

blipp (7898) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 16, 2009
Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. The aroma is floral hoppy with some sweet malt. The flavor has citrus hops as well as floral notes, with some lightly sweet malt. Not bad.

This is ok, I was a little let down as the Kona brewing company has some fine beers.

Draft at the local for lunch yesterday. having never visited Hawaii, I’m not sure what "Hawaiian-style" infers. I once saw a bumper sticker that read..."I’m not late...I’m on Hawaiian time" So with this casualness in mind I start off on this brew. Nose is lightly nutty as is first touch to tounge. A crisp and clear medium amber in the glass. Then I remember that I am a member of the mug club....D’oh! Some moderate hop esters in the nose, like sugared grapefruit with some pear juice. Hops are certainly present in this critter but not in your face, and are well balanced with the smooth, slightly toffee/buttery body. Finish is on the sweet side. some nice building quaff rings and cruncy lacing.
