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 - Pours a caramely copper color with a small off white head. A bit of lacing along the sides.

S - Caramel malts, but a good mixture of citrus and piney hops. Not incredible pungent, but pleasant and balanced.

T - Great balanced taste here. It's got a solid caramel malt backbone, very full, but provides a kick of piney and citrus hops and finishes very clean.

M - Crisp and clean, but actually pretty robust taste.

Overall - I was impressed with this beer. A solid pale ale that seems to bring a good amount of malt balance. Very good.

Poured into a nonic.

Pours a clear dark copper, with an off white small head. Head settles to a lace layer. Some patchy lace. Good carbonation and bubbles rise as it sits. Pretty good looks.

Brew smells of a good balance of caramel malts and floral and citrus hops. Good balanced nose.

Brew is good and balanced; sweet caramel and nutty malts. Good floral and citrus flavors here. Brew is very easy drinking and mellow. Great flavors and balance. Honestly a great tasting and drinking APA here.

This is a case worthy brew here; great flavor and balance. Could drink it by the truck load. My first brew from Kona Brewing and I am very impressed. Great stuff - a stand out APA here.
