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.

35 IBU

3.5/5  rDev -3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

This brew pours a dark copper/brown color; somewhat opaque, light just barely makes it through. There is a half-finger head which dissipates quickly, some of it sticks around until the end. Light lacing.

The smell is mostly caramel and roasted malts. Some sweetness, bready, lemongrass and pine.

The tastes is thick caramel malts, bread, pine, grapefruit and some other type of fruit I cannot identify.
The feel is thick, bready and chewy. There is some pine prickliness left on the tongue after swallowing.

This is a somewhat complex but not a "blow me away" type of Pale Ale. It is a solid Pale Ale even though it has a low hop content. However, without the 'in your face' hops this brew might make a good "session" brew.
