Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Fire Rock Pale Ale is 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.

Decent PA...hoppier than most PAs, with a nice twang. I looked at the bottle and saw that the "expiration" date was 4/15/13 and I just bought it last week...not sure if it matters. Also, learned that it is brewed right here in Portsmouth, NH...nowhere near Hawaii (not that I care). I'm guessing that the Portsmouth Brewery is doing a little side work with recipes imported from lands afar. PB produces quality so I'm good with that detail.

In any case, I wasn't blown away. Worth another try since when I had it on tap in FL a few years ago it was fantastic.
