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 - Slightly hazy amber with gold highlights. Thin tan head dissipates quickly.

S - Malty sweet background with floral hops in the foreground.

T - Well-balanced malt sweetness with a nice hop accent.

M - A little thin, but well carbonated

D - I think I may have found a new favorite beer. This is smooth and drinkable. Wow.

Born on date od 14 dec 05, made in oregon still???

Pours caramel to orange, with a 3 fingers+ rocky as hell offwhite head. Head retention and lacing are average

Smell:: Malty sweetness, piney hops, followed by some caramel

Taste: Rich fruitiness, piney/floral hops& caramel dance together. A nice hoppy/bitter & slight dry/finishing finish

MF: Slight thickness with good carbonation. Great balance in this beer

Very drinkable, great session ale. When fresh,I highly reccomend this, a very well put together PA! Or as they'd say on the big island: onolicious!!
