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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours an orange/amber color with about a half inch off-white head. Head retention is decent, lacing is good. Aroma is citrusy hops (orange), caramel malt and a bit of floral hops too. Taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of a bit of peppery spice. The hops are the strongest flavor in this brew, but they're not overpowering. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit coating and has moderate carbonation. Drinkability is good.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a hazy orangish copper color with a two finger head which gives way to some lacing. The aroma has a faint toffee and sweet malt backbone with a some citrus hop notes over the top. The taste has a toffee and bready backbone on the back end there is a citrus hop bite with a slight floral hop. The mouthfeel is moderately carbonated. Overall it is a solid apa not the hoppiness of some of the bigger apa's but the drinkability is well blended and very smooth.
