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.

On tap at the Mews in Wakefield RI. Slight hazy copper pour, creamy foam head with some lacing. Light flora of hops. Palate is light citrus, hops and malts. A crisp like texture with some bitterness towards the finish. Probably a good paring with ham/pineapples.

Six pack from Majestic Liquors on Eastchase. Not that great, but by this point, Kona is hit or miss for me. Could have been more hoppy.

CheersMate (1342) - Portland (Sellhood), Oregon, USA - SEP 12, 2009
6-pack purchased at a local convenience store. Nice looking pale ale. Peach/gold or copper color. Nice thin head sitting on top that slowly fades away. Very surprised to see how good this thing looks. Nice sweet caramel malt aroma. Nice subtle hop that almost perfectly balances the aroma. Not overly pungent, but still a nice aroma. The flavor is a bit boring and weak. A mild hop flavor with a little sweet malt backing. Nothing amazing going on here, but a very straight forward APA. Not exceptionally creamy, but average.

Bottle from Wholefoods. Pours a pretty dark amber, looks nice. Medium carbonation, sharp hop tang underneath sweet malts. Grainy and medium bodied. Tasty brew.

mansquito (5849) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 10, 2009
Poured a clear amber color with a small uninteresting head. Smell is of mild citrus and a little bit of malts. Taste is again not too interesting. A little bit of hops. Bunch of malts. Mouth feel was smooth, but not at all hearty. Not my favorite APA.

thedm (5976) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 5, 2009
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a transparent uncarbonated orange colored body. The deep mild aroma was hoppy and floral. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The nice sharp flavor contained notes of hops. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

williamherbert (1523) - Syracuse, New York, USA - AUG 31, 2009
A clear dark orange color. Almost no head retention whatsoever, though a thin layer does remain on top. The smell is bitter pale malts, with a bleachy hop smell. Seems to be of the German (Hallertauer/Saaz) variety. A tad off-putting. The taste is bitter hops at the front of the tongue, almost like chlorine. A bitter amber malt flavor, with hints of some crystally pale thrown in. More malty than hoppy. The feel is a thick and fizzy body. Dances on the tongue, then sticks around. Its drinkable enough, but too overly bitter for my tastes, without enough balance.

Pours a three finger cream head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Clear amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Hoppy nose. Flavor is citrus hops, little sweetness and a light bitter finish. Reasonable pale. Bottled on May 6, 2009. $1.75 for a 12oz bottle from Beverage Warehouse Winooski, VT.
