Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: xlperro on 08-30-2002

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.

Reviewed on 11-22-09
Reviewed cold from a bottle to a glass

A - Dark orange color, pretty good carbonation, 1 finger of foam, decent head retention

S - Faint citrus smell and hop smell. Heavy on the malt aroma

T - Medium bodied, heavy in the malt category. Full flavored feeling going down with a bitter aftertaste

M/D - A medium bodied brew with a pretty heavy malt taste. I didn't notice any real sweet taste sine I thought the citrus smell was on the light side. This was the last of a 4-pack of brew that a buddy brought back for me. I'm glad I had tried it but wouldn't look for it in the future. If you get the chance to try one I would recommend it but this brew wasn't there for me.

The beer as it evacuates the 12 ounce brown bottle pours a slightly hazy golden amber color, the head is portly in size, spumescent in texture and the color a bright white with the lace a satin like curtain to drape the glass. Nose is sweet malt, crisp and clean to the senses with the start sweet, nicely malted and the top middling in its feel. The acidity mild at the finish and the hops personable in their spiciness, quite dry and a nice drinking beer that just fits the 100 degree temperature today.

Bottled on date "Sep 19 2011" ow it's at least 3-4 months old.

A - Little head that turns quickly to a lace ring decent amount of sticky lacing. Clear orange yellow tint with a bit of sediment chunks throughout.

S - Fairly hoppy kind of faint and some strong pale malts. Subtle.

T - Well it's fairly balance maybe could use more hops in the flavor since the pale malt is out of balance (bit strong and kind of grainy) Finish is slightly bitter and earthy. Ok at best.

M - Light to medium.

Overall I am kind of disappointed in this it's kind of grainy and harsh with an earthy hop bite. If I ever try this again I might change my score.
