Red Rocket Ale is a bastardized Scottish style red ale that traces it’s origins to our homebrew roots. This full bodied and hoppy brew finishes on the palate with sweet, caramel malt flavors. 2009 California State Fair - SILVER 1999 Great American Beer Festival® Other Strong Ales or Lagers - SILVER 1998 Great American Beer Festival® Other Strong Ales - SILVER

Poured a deep red-brown color, darker brown than I was expecting. The head was fantastic, almost Belgian pillowy, and full of lacing. The aroma was of caramel malts and pine-floral hops. Flavor was most like an amber ale, as the alcohol wasn’t strong at all. The malty base was deep and rich to support the floral-citrus hops in the flavor. If you’re a hop head, go for this one... hopped like an IPA, abv of an IPA, but with a strong amber malt base.

Pours a cloudy amber with a huge rocky head that settles into a great creamy layer. Hops dominate the aroma - flowers, citrus, grapefruit, orange, lemon and tangerine - WOW! Waifs of caramel malts manage to break through the hop onslaught to offer balance to the nose. The body notes more fruity goodness - banana, apple, peach and pineapple as well as honey and butterscotch. This drinks great too, medium body with soft carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. Long, hoppy finish. Damn nice beer.

Poured a clear dark amber color with a thin off-white head. Big hoppy aroma with floral and citrus notes. Sweet malt underneath. Pine and carmale flavor. Sweet maltiness most of the way. Medium bodied.

Shared with csbosox: Poured a bright ruby red, mahogany color. Wasn’t sure if the lighting was playing tricks on me, or if it was really that red. A fluffy brownish cappacino head sat atop the beer throughout. The aroma began as some sort of smoked wood, some dry earthy notes and finishing with some prunes. The flavor is very sweet, a brown sugary-malty with small under a small hoppy flavors masked behind the sweet malts. The palate was sweet and smooth almost creamy. Overall a very nice beer.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2007 This one really kind of messed with my mind at first. When I took my first whiff all I got was bacon grease. I thought csbosox may have not washed my glass very well. Then I read the lable and picked up Scottish red ale and things started to make more sence. The beer was poured into a New Belguim Worthy glass. Dark red with some firey hues near the bottom. Carbonation rose from the bottom to ample beige head that lasted most of the experience. The nose was smokey with a touch of roast. The hops didn’t really come out to play until the beer had warmed quite a bit. The flavor was very rich with chocolate and roast along with some peaty smokey flavor. A touch of toffee. Quite full bodied, and silky over smooth over the tongue. No unpleasant sensatiolns at all. Overall, this isn’t a beer I’d drink very often, but interesting nonetheless. Thanks for sharing csbosox.

I have to agree with Piscator. Not that impressed with this one. More malty than I expected. Wouldn’t buy this one again.

22oz Bomber, no date. Pours a ruby brown with a medium bubbly brown head. Aroma has some caramel and raisins, grapefruit and a little pine. Also has a little metal too. Flavor has some caramel and toasted nuttiness to it, as well as the raisins coming back. There is bitterness in there fighting the sweet malts, but neither really wins. Slightly bitter finish. A well made brew.

This brewery just don’t stop making great beer. If you wan’t a good red with over the top flavors, then you’ve found the beer for you. The commercial description pretty much nails it.

this beer is pretty tasty. Pours amber with a minimal white head. Aroma is big citrusy hops (a bit tart even) and some fruit malt. Taste is similar except the caramal malts come out much bigger than one would expect. A medium mouthfeel that is very refreshing. This is a perfect beer to switch to when I need a break from these huge beers or uber hopped IPAs.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - MAY 22, 2006
Bottled. Pours a deep, dark mahogany with an ivory head. Malty aroma with some dark fruits and hop notes. Malty, then hoppy. A little unbalanced. Prunes, caramel, oranges. Astringent finish.
