Fire Rock Pale Ale, Kona Brewing Company, Honolulu, HI

Since I've been slacking a bit on the reviews I've decided to recycle a review I wrote to friends last fall after a trip to Coronado. Here goes: The Kona Fire Rock Pale Ale begins as a smooth caramel delight similar to a Sam Adams Octoberfest, however it accelerates and ends with a real hoppy finish. This kind of combination makes this beer so enjoyable and definitely targets my wheel house as far as beer preference goes. This beer tracks at 6% ABV so it also has some kick. The Fire Rock gets a 3.5.
