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 on tap at the Old Chicago in Silverthorn, Colorado. It had a nice straw-orange color with decent clarity and a good head. It seemed to have more body than the taste would have me believe. There wasn’t much malt flavor, it was almost all hops. The aroma fell short, it wasn’t as floral as I would have liked. The taste is almost all piney hops and bitterness.

Bottle. Creamy caramel malt and light pine hops aroma. Amber color with small head. Caramel malt and pine hops flavor. Very nice APA.

Bottle. Pours a amber color. Somewhat hoppy smell. Tastes bitter (hoppy) not much in malt flavor. Not bad.

tomciccateri (1034) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - SEP 26, 2008
12-ounce brown bottle in Albuqueruqe - pours a deep amber with a white head. Mild hoppy aroma. Medium body with solid carbonation. Pronounced hoppy bitterness and flavor at the expense of the malt character. ( OKAY, a bit caramely) Clean finish. A nice American pale ale without going over the top on hop presence. Very drinkable.

nuplastikk (5911) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 22, 2008
12oz bottle. Tan-amber color, highly filtered. Mild malty aroma. Bland malt profile, with a slight hop balance. Mellow and easy drinking. Nothing special.

buzzoven (376) - JAPAN - SEP 18, 2008
Bready, yeasty smell from the tip of the glass. Not much of an exciting or tantalizing head or colour to speak of. Taste was slightly piney/grassy...very slight grapefruit hints in the mouthfeel. Finish was truly weird...it was practically invisible except for this slight tingle on the tongue. This one left me confused.

12 oz. bottled May 23, 08. Clear copper with a small head that lasts. Grain, toasted nut and honey aromas. Flavors of bitter nut, cocoa and a sour citrus twang as well. Light medium body is mostly smooth and roasty-dry.

Aroma is a very pleasant citrus scent. Orangish-Amber color, almost no head...bottle is beautiful. Good flavor for a pale ale which is not my favorite type of beer...not too overpowering like Sierra Nevada. Starts bitter, gets a little sweet...leaves a weird sensation on the tounge. Like most pale ales...its not too easy on the palate...but this is better than most...however it did leave a weird aftertaste in my throat. Overall I liked it...it’s one of the better pale ales that I’ve had, probably a bit better than the Sam Adams but not as good as Sweetwater 420. As a bottle collector, I loved the bottle.

TChrome (1448) - Bedford, Texas, USA - SEP 12, 2008
Beer pours attractive copper color with a modestly retained off white head. Aroma is lightly citrus hops with just a bit of cereal maltiness. Flavor follows the aroma with an initial hoppy begining then just a bit of malty sweetness. Pretty tasty.

I’ve been wanting to try this beer since I started seeing it on the shelf. Cloudy coppery orange in appearance. Thick soapy head. Slight aroma of herbs, flowers and fresh cut grass. Crisp malty flavor that finishes with a slight roasted taste on the tounge. Overall it’s easy drinking but still retains some complexity. I’m hooked.
