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.

So happy to see this, because it knocks off both of the non-continental states. This beer was brought back to me from my friend Rick, after his trip to DC. The aroma has a hint of resiny hops and a little floral esters. The beer is a hazy orangish-copper with a thin white head. The flavor is a decent balance of hop and malt, not too piney and not too much caramel. This is a good representative from the US Pale Ale category. It’s rather smooth, body is more on the light side, with a thinner texture, a decent fizzy carbonation, and semi-long finish. Cool beer to have arrive at my door, fun to drink outside by the fire pit with the dogs and a guitar.

355ml bottle into pint glass. Cloudy golden bronze beer with thin lasting head. Fine steady carbonation. Laces well. Distant malt nose. Good body, smooth mouthfeel. Taste is surprisingly malty for an APA, the hops kick in later but are still subdued. Nice beer, tastes like a fruity caramel.

PanMarek (267) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2016
Cloudy, golden pour with thin white foam that doesn’t leave much on the sides of the glass. Faint fruity hops in the nose and moderate caramel malt. The hops are stronger in the taste with citrus coming out. Medium / light body and slightly slick texture and thin foam. A good, mild IPA.

Clear Amber colour with only a light rim of lasting head. Malty, sweet and roasty with grass notes and faint citrus. Less bitter than sweet and quite a short finish. Goes well with the spice cake I just had but the cake is carrying this team.

JorgeLee (1800) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2016
Bottle, from the bottle at Trineesh’s wedding beach barbeque. This probably suffered from being over cold from the ice bucket it was swimming in but improved to be pleasant enough as it warmed, some sweetish malt and a muted floral hop finish. A bit dull though - and as with so many American Pales I don’t really get the point of this being 5.8%, the easy drinking flavour profile is out of whack with such a strong beer.
