Fire Rock Pale Ale is the first beer I've had from Kona (I think, certainly the first reviewed). It's a pretty average beer for the style. There is nothing offensive, but not what I'm really looking for in a APA. Maybe I got an older bottle, but this beer is very malt forward without the hop flavor or mouthfeel that I've grown accustomed to in the best APA's--which have bright citrusy hops and toasty biscuity malt. The malt in this beer even tastes a bit oxidized and a bit too sweet/caramelly. The sweetness at the end of the beer is a little too much without the hops.
