From Kona Brewing out of Kailua Kona, Hawaii (The Big Island) comes their “Fire Rock Pale Ale”. The brew pours an amber colour with an off white head. The aroma of the beer is of is very faint but consists of an earthy hops. The flavour of the beer is malty, caramel with some fruity characteristics and a fairly mild hopyness. This is a nice tasting beer but not all that like an American Pale Ale (not hopy enough) and it is not distinctly Hawaiian. Dont get me wrong you will not go wrong picking this beer up! The beer has an alcohol content of 6% and an IBU of 35.
Fire Rock Pale Ale is a 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.
