Purchased at: Parents brought it back from Florida for me.

What makes this beer different: A bit malty for a pale ale, but thats right up my alley.

Will I be drinking this again: Not available near me so based on that fact alone probably not.

Grade: B+

6/6/2010: Another below average quality photo, sorry about that! In my defense though, I was drinking heavily for most of my vacation. So the fuzziness of the picture is about on par with how things looked through my eyes at this point.

Fire Rock smells very hoppy for a pale ale, but the taste doesn’t make you think that. The taste is very sweet with a good bit of caramel malt. The hops are there but they definitely take a back seat to the malt. Mouthfeel is about average, and carbonation is a bit low, which was a big knock on this beer.

Picture of the day: How to piss of a hipster.
