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.

I’m wondering if this was a mis-pour at the IPA festival at Lucky Baldwins. Sure did strike me as a Belgian beer - sweet caramel with very little hop presence at all. Floaty yeasty thingies hanging around in the bottom of the glass. I’m going to have to try this one again.

Bottle. Hazy amber. minimal head. Nice soft woody hop nose. Woody light hop flavour with a dry hoppy finish.

3fourths (9137) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 7, 2009
Bottle. Chill haze adds a haziness to a caramel orange colored body with a small off-white ring of carbonation on top. Disgusting oxidized crystal malt immediately puts me off. Some dried citrus fruit hop notes are present but this beer is pretty much consumed by crystal. Chewy texture, medium bodied, somewhat chunky and messy on the palate. Flavors of caramel malt and peanut butter don’t score any points. Mild to medium oxidation but it absolutely ruins the beer. Terrible.

On tap at Taphouse. Pours clear gold/orange with tan head. Mild floral hops. Good hops flavor, but a little bitter,finiish. A bit fizzy.

gpekar (494) - Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2009
Poured a n amber/copper with a nice off-white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was predominately pine. There was a good crisp clean initial taste with a nice bit of a hop bite. Not too strong, but enough to let you know there was hops. The hops left a slight bitterness on the finish, but again not overpowering. There was a bit of pine in the flavor as well as the aroma along with a slightly metallic taste towards the finish and some malt sweetness. This is a nice session beer.

Sugary, toasted aroma. Taste conjures up its volcano heritage. Sweet coating palate. Served from bottle in pint glass.

Nice and bitter way to start off a Sunday morning. Had this beer brought back to Canada for me and was suprised mainly cause i didnt think anything good would come out of the Kona brewery, but this is the second Kona brew i’ve had and so far so good or so average but so what? Dark amber with a good lasting fresh fruity smell and a decent thick head that had some legs..but, like most average brew, i polish it off waaaay to quick. Next.

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.

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.
