Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: xlperro on 08-30-2002

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.

Sample dated 12/07/2010. Word under the cap: Paki=Splash

A - Pours a light cloudy red to orange color. Three fingers of off-white head that dissipated quickly. The lacing lasted all the way down.

S - One of the best scents I have had from an APA. Malts, mixed with citrus fruit. Had to take it in a few times, just because I liked it!

T - Malts and a slight sweetness followed by a touch of dryness, which is TOTALLY in balance. Finishes slightly bitter and again noted the dry.

M - Smooth, dry, sweet & crisp. Carbonation is dead on.

D - This is a great APA. I highly recommended it.

I deeply enjoyed this beer, in fact, I wish I was drinking one right now. A surprising flavor and texture for an American pale ale - a style which doesn't usually appeal to me. The color is a deep orange, almost rusty shade, with almost no head. But what I really enjoyed about this beer was the smoothness. The hop and malt flavor is extremely well balanced. The carbonation lends the beer a great mouthfeel that makes this one very drinkable. Although the flavor is a tiny bit thin and mildly fruity, I thought it was worlds better than other pale ales in the American "canon" (Sierra Nevada springs to mind). This may become my new default beer.
