Day #211 – Kona Fire Rock Pale Ale

July 31, 2011

I’ve finally got a beer from the great state of Hawaii and I’m shocked I haven’t reviewed anything from this brewery before! They have several things available in our area, I just haven’t gotten around to it yet.

Kona is brewed in Kailua Kona, Hawaii. As I mentioned previously they have several products available in our area. This one is their pale ale. It rings in at 5.9% ABV.

This beer pours a very clear, dark orange color with a frothy white head.

Aroma is sweet grapefruit notes and hops. Sweet malts and other dry fruity notes.

Flavor is sweet malts, with a dry grainy flavor. The hops impart a bitterness that can be felt on the finish. Pretty standard.
