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: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Transparent dark amber. 1 finger creamy head. Quickly dissipating. Nice lacing.

Smell: On the light side. Sweet malts, caramel and orangey citrus.

Taste: Malt forward followed by a nice citrusy hop bitterness. Sweet citrus is present throughout. Finish reminds me of burnt bread and lingering citrus with slight bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with crisp carbonation. Slightly oil finish with lightly lingering citrus sweetness and hop bitterness.

Overall: This is pretty good. I wouldn't see anything wrong with picking up a six pack of these from time to time. Nicely balanced and flavorful. Its almost like a light IPA, especially as it warms; the orangey hop flavors become much more pronounced. I'm sure I'll have this again.
