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.

Poured into a nonic. Transparent, light amber color with a a beige 2 finger head. Great retention and lacing. Aroma is of faint tropical citrus hops and not much else. Flavor is mildly hoppy up front, with some grassy twang. The hops then meld into a shortbread cookie-like maltiness. Theres also a bit of a lemon curd note in the finish. Mouthfeel is good, drinkability is high. An interesting and clearly tropical take on the APA style.

Drake (13257) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 30, 2008
I enjoyed the sample at WBF Raleigh, so it was nice to find a bottle on the way out of town. Bottle picked up at Sams Quik Shop in Durham. Pours a dark amber with little head. Good hop/malt balance in the aroma, even if the aroma is a bit faint. Nice citrus hop profile with a sweet malt backbone. A little out of balance and thin.

glennmastrange (2776) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - APR 30, 2008
Bottle. Light malt note of light bread, moderate aromas of pine and resin for the hops, light broth for the yeast, and brown sugar and date in the background. Head is small, white, with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear light copper. Flavor is moderately acidic to start and lightly acidic and moderately bitter in the finish. Palate is light to medium, watery with a hint of oiliness, and has a fizzy carbonation. It finishes a little metallic and lightly astringent. A nice beer for dumping a few, yet tasty enough to take your time with.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - APR 30, 2008
12oz bottle. Spicy, sprucy, and fruity-jammy-orange-citrus sweet nose. An orange with cloves? The flavor has some sweet orange marmalade and spice. Some light citric hops leave a slight bitterness in the finish. The toasty, fruity malts leave a sweet body that the hops just cut through. If you are going for balance, this is close, but could be slightly dryer. Medium bodied with smooth bubbles and a slight stickiness. Pretty well done and balanced.

TURDFERGUSON (4055) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 28, 2008
Bottle from Sams. The best kona beer I have had to date. Nice nose of citrus hops and caramel malt. Flavor follows suit. Better than your average APA, but still not too exciting.

beerbill (3616) - Laurel, New York, USA - APR 26, 2008
12 oz bottle. Well, I needed a beer to replace the Barrel House Red Legg that I ended up dumping down the sink, so I reached into the fridge and grabbed this one. Pours a hazy amber with a moderate linen white head that lasted through a few sips and left some light spotty lace. Pleasant aroma of malt and some bitter citrus. The flavor is very similar with some sweet malt up front and finishes with some bitter citrus. Very easy to drink. A nice solid APA.

Bottle sampled. Pours copper with a small white head. Aroma of caramel malts, citrus, and floral hops. the flavor is sweet upfront, caramel, citrus, carbonated, and finishes bitter. Good body, ok brew.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - APR 23, 2008
Draught at Woodys in Downtown Raleigh during a promotional event--I now own a grass skirt!!! Pours copper colored with a small white head. Aroma is mildly hoppy, with a faint caramel smell. Flavor is hoppy, citrus and grass, with a decent malt backbone. Pretty good beer.

gabbama (203) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2008
Mild citrus hop aroma with a little malt presence. Flavor is lots of citrus hops with a clean bitter finish. A nice APA, espcially if you like hops. Nicely refreshing on a warm Kona night.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - APR 18, 2008
A very mild version of a pale ale. Goldish amber with a lightly hoppy nose. Flavor is soft hops over malt, mildly soapy. An okay version of the style.
