Kona Fire Rock Pale Ale is a sweeter pale ale that pours to a light orange color with a small level of foam that doesn't hold up for long. The nose on this beer is mild, with the scent of caramelized malt and a small amount of fruit.
Taste- wise, Kona Fire Rock Pale Ale is a softer, gentler pale ale but still quite enjoyable. Flavors like caramel malt, pale malt, citrus and other fruits- perhaps even a touch of passion fruit- greet the palate as you sip. The taste is sweet overall, finishing with only a touch of bitterness and the taste of honey.
I usually go for the fuller- bodied pale ale but Kona Fire Rock Pale Ale is a tasty little pale ale. The body of Kona Fire Rock Pale Ale tends toward the medium to light side and the hops offered here are not over the top, nor are they very bitter. The Galena hops contribute to a flavor that reminds me of a fine English Pale Ale and the beer is highly drinkable and very pleasant. Add to that the citrus fruit taste enhancement from the other hop varieties and you have a nice combination of flavors. It's a good pale ale choice when you want some hops but don't want an overwhelming taste of spice and bitterness.

Pours a clear medium amber with a hint of red. Normal head, lacing and retention. Light tropical nose (passion fruit) over caramel. Heavy medium bodied with a nice slick oily texture. Average carbonation level with a bit of effervescence on the finish. The taste profile is balanced between the flavors of the nose. It begins with tropical notes, flows to a bit of spice and ends with a light bitterness over caramel.
