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.

A: Opaque burnt amber with a white half finger head that dissipates quickly. Nice lacing.

S: Guava, mangoes, pineapple.

T: Great malt/hop balance intermingled with Hawaiian fruits. Low bitterness. decent.

M: Light to medium with medium carbonation. A dry finish.

O: OK, just not a great pale ale. Sessionable.

Very close to bright clearness, but there is a little haze to it. Very soft brown color, hints of orange. Nice lace sits on the top where a nice white head used to sit. Somewhat tart in the nose, black currant and cherries, meshed with hops and wet grain feed. Alcohol right in the beginning of the taste, wasn't expecting that. Some cinnamon, and toasted grain in there as well. Really nice aftertaste, hops and crushed pepper. A little watery maybe, but really not a lot of complaints here. I'm enjoying this more than I thought I would...
