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.

Pours with little head, but maintains an invitingly beautiful copper color. The initial aroma hints of its citrusy hoppiness. Although pretty it has a light texture, the taste is wonderfully tart. Excellent.

muffy (19) - Longwood, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Nice amber orange pour that is clear and still. There is a thick puffy head on a warm pour but that entirely disloved after 3 minutes. Aroma is bready with a sweet smokey caramel undertone. Smooth medium body with a nice full mouth feel but lacking the heavy sticky feeling. The aftertaste is just as smooth but becomes more astrengient as the is retained. This combines to a both modest sweet and bitter combination. Combined with the smokey aroma makes a deliciously unique combination. Overall a great go-to beer.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - APR 28, 2006
Color is deep copper. Yields a shallow slikened froth. Aroma is malty with a hint of fresh biscuits. Medium to full nectar weight. Just rolls of the tongue. Good caramel and fruit flavors with a slight hoppy character. No citrus at all. Very mellow. Well ballanced. Highly recommended.

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!

Bottle. Refreshing light golden brown ale. Not sure why people call it boring as we found it to have a malty character that neither distracts nor is overbearing. Much better cold than room-temp. Another very good summer time evening beer.

Kona is by far my favorite brewing company and fire rock is my most recommended beer so far.

jamaty (1248) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 5, 2015
Ambar oscura, no mucha espuma, pero permanente. Rico aroma, muy herbal, floral. En boca una delicia de textura, cremosa y suave. Y un excelente sabor muy equilibrado. Rica miel, dulce malta. Flores. Ligero amargor muy lupulado. Albaricoque. Naranja. Predominio de lúpulos, notables. Pero todo ello compensado y envuelto en un punto justo de efervescencia que realza el conjunto. Se queda en boca tiempo. Y pide otro trago.

NeonLX (261) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 3, 2003
ON TAP at various outlets in Hawaii--discovered this one on a recent trip to the 50th state and was mightily impressed. Pours a medium copper color with a nice, long-lasting head. Palate is almost creamy. This is a "full-bodied" beer with plenty of depth. Well-defined maltiness at first, followed up quickly by a full foray of hops. I also sampled bottled versions of this beer and they did not quite live up to the expectations set by the beer out of the tapper. The bottled version doesn't have quite the depth of flavor and also seems more artificially carbonated. However, it's still a very nice brew that I'd buy if it became available at our local beer outlets.

jsmerig (1351) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Pours a golden yellow with minimal head. Aroma o light grain malts with an orange mixed in. Taste is nicely malty in the front. The spiciness sneaks up after the finish and the palate is nicely dry and crisp. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours with a clean amber color, off-white head. The minor lack of aroma is made up in the palate and taste. A rich malt start is is finished by the sharp resiny finish. A well balanced pale ale, that leads to a craving to have more.
