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.

Poured into a pint glass.

Pours a deep copper colored brew that has a one finger thick frothy, white head. Nice lacing...clumpy and clinging to the sides of the glass. Nice island floaters here...

Smells of oily, earthy hops with a faint biscuit malt.

Tastes of roasted caramel malt with a nice, mild, earthy - oily hop character some bright fruits and a hint of spice in there as well.

Light, crisp and refreshing.

A slightly different take on a traditional pale ale. Kona brewing has been in my rotation recently. I have not been disappointed in the least. A crowd pleaser for sure.
