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.

Another Secret Santa offering from Mr. AlohaC.
Pours the requisite amber color. Head had a heavier, less long lived quality with limited lacing. Some faint funky hops and some grassy overtones on the aroma.
Had this one directly after a Deschutes. This one had a good initial bite of hops, it demured to a grassy/chalky backbone afterward. Not bad, worth drinking with a pizza and watching WSOP. Finished very clean. Drinkable in a hanging out and talking $hit kind of way.

A - Amber/caramel beer with some tiny bubbles and a one finger head that fades slowly.

S - Malt and citrusy hops on the nose.

T - At first it is slightly sweet from the malt and then you get the hops that are mostly citrus with some floral notes.

M - Light body with medium carbonation.

O - Eh, nothing special, quite a bit of better apa's to be found easily.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass

A: Pours a clear light golden amber with a fingers width of sea foam white head. The head dissipates to a solid thick film and leaves a surprising amount of lacing.

S: Lots of yeast, white bread, mild citrus hops and a hint of piney hops.

T: Mostly citrus hops. A little bit of the bready yeast that was present in the aroma and a subtle hint of roasted malt. Its pretty light up front, but has a nice significant hop bitterness on the back end.

M/D: Light bodies and pretty heavily carbonate. Certainly easy to drink. I could see it being a good beer to drink on a hot day.

O: Overall this is a pretty solid beer. Nothing spectacular, and a little light for my liking, but certainly worth drinking. I wouldn’t run out to buy more but I definitely won’t have a problem finishing this 6 pack.
