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 had this in Hawaii and enjoyed it on tap a lot more than this bottle. Pretty bland actually. Drinkable but nothing special.

I’m at the Burger Barge in East Peoria. My other options are miller and bud products. This tastes like gourmet gasoline.

High_in_NM (21) - Los Alamos NM, New Mexico, USA - MAY 20, 2015
From a bottle at local Smith’s. Pours a smoky amber with quickly dissipating white head and minimal carbonation. Smoky caramel and bread taste malt, could easily pass for a Marzen. Minimal hops bitterness. Light body, 6.0% abv, yet full flavor makes this one a nice alternative to the regular fare. Very nice!

I will start by saying I am biased to pale ales. This specific pale ale is amber/auburn colored and it pours out completely smooth with minimal carbonation. It has that nice crisp hop based flavor that most good pale ales have but not that overly bitter flavor that double IPAs tend to have. Great local Hawaiian beer offering! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ambrata, lievemente velata, molto carbonata, corpo leggero., testa di schiuma bianca fine e compatta ma non molto alta. Aroma di uvetta e caramello. Al palato stessa cosa con nota amaricante erbacea sul finale. Di facile beva, rinfrescante.

larsga (6621) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2015
Big white head. Clear amber body with carbonation. Raisiny strawy caramelly aroma with resiny notes. Sweetish raisiny spicy taste with earthy cocos notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish spicy cocos aftertaste with earthy salty notes. Niceish, but a bit stale. Not much sign of the hops. (0.355l bottle, from Vinbudin Kringlan.)

Bacterial (2065) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 21, 2015
Meh. Amber pour. Malty with just a hint of hop character. This is better than PBR but its pretty mild.

Rolfarild (72) - NORWAY - APR 20, 2015
Clear copper with off-white head that quickly dissapears leaving a nice lacing that looks like an old language line by line. Aroma of caramell and pine. The taste is chrispy with bread, pepper and caramell sweetnes. A refreshing beer with an appealing taste.
