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 golden to amber color with bright white head that retains well. Nose is on the light side, with lager-like breadiness, and faint fruitiness - peaches perhaps. Palate is a mixture of bland maltiness and hops with sharpness but not much in the way of positively contributing to flavor. Slight fruit. Mineral taste too. Easy drinking.

Bouteille de 12 oz. Armes de houblon herbeux, lgre touche citronne. Robe ambre assez ple, effervescence moyenne. Moyennement ronde en bouche, le malt caramel est intressant mais la prsence du houblon est plutt limite. Amertume assez faible. Une APA sous la moyenne.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2009 Tap @ Monster Bs. Sweet pale ale. Very similar to Harpoon IPA. Honey notes. Malt character is more potent than the hops. Very sweet, sugar added most likely.

Shag (2881) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 17, 2009
This poured an amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma contains some grapefruit, caramel, and pineapple. The flavor consists of grapefruit, pineapple, and caramel. The aftertaste is slightly bitter but also some sweetness can be detected. Overall nothing very complex but a very nice session pale ale.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - APR 15, 2009
good session beer. Poured a nice amber hue with a thin white head that had little retention. Aroma was of mild sweet malt notes and some hops. Flavor was well balanced and the beer was overall smooth.

scooterbub (1047) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - APR 15, 2009
Bottle. Pours a light copper color with a nice, small, foamy beige head that lasts. Taste is of malt, caramel, hops, grass and pine. The finish is slightly bitter. Slightly creamy body. Very easy to drink and rather enjoyable. A nice brew to kick back, relax and have.

This APA had a lot of promise as I poured it into a shaker glass. The color was a clear and beautiful copper with a generous off-white head. The head left lots of lacing around the glass. The nose was also pretty impressive, with a very citrusy, woody and hoppy aroma. It also had quite a bit of sweetness to it, which isnt all that common from what I find. But unfortunately, thats where the impressiveness ends. The body was a little sour with more sweetness mixed in. The finish was also a little sour, but had a nice hoppy and citrusy bite. There was a good amount of flowerly hops to the flavors, but not much dryness or woody notes. The sweetness and slight sourness really ruined this experience for me. Its certainly a very different tasting interpretation of the APA sytle.
