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.

This beer was poured into my crystal mug and produced a clear amber with a white, one finger high bubbly head. It dissipates slowly and leaves great lacing.
The smell is almost IPA like, but that is a plus in my book! Flowery hops and a malty background.
Tasting the beer those flavors are confirmed. Fruity hops up front, balanced by some more earthy flavors and malt. Great bittersweet finish!
Great brew! A fantastic pale ale!

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.
