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.

35 IBU

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Standard pour yields a deep straw color with a 3/4 finger head that leaves only a little foam. Decent lace

S: Wow, a surprising amount of pineapple in this and it's very up front. No alcohol of note and the malt is subdued as well. Generous addition of hops late in the boil gives flowery and pine notes.

T: Here the pineapple is quite limited and hops dominate- more resiny than anything. Malt still limited but it works.

M: The hops bite well after the swallow. A bit sticky in the finish. Highly carbonated.

O: Glad to see Kona with this offering. Will try again
