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

This has that nice, quality character too it. Nice frothy head, rich sumptuous aroma of hops and caramel malt. The hops are citric and spicy- blending wonderfully with the malt. The only drawback for me is the sweetness in the finish, although appropriate somehwhat for a Scottish ale, I find to sweet. Very good overall however.

Bottle courtesy of BuckNaked. Pours dark ruby/brown with decent beige head that fades to film. Initial aroma is all malty caramel, with some hops in the background, maybe even some rye? Flavor much the same. caramel, toffee, light chocolate, with pine and citrus hops in a huge bitter finish. Very well done.

cloudy light brown with lasting tan head. This 22 oz bottle was a gusher. Though no sign of infection other than perhaps a slight overcarbonation. Aroma was malty vanilla with hops, a bit sweet. The flavor is a creamy malty backbone with hop flavor and bitterness in the finish. Nice

Bottle shared with tupalev at Bar Volo. Pours brown with an average fizzy white head. Aroma is moderately hoppy with some citrus, scotch and sweet malts. Smells great! The flavour is a near perfect blend of hops and malt. Palate is nice and creamy. An awesome beer and one of my favourites. Bear Republic continue to impress.

Poured dark amber with a thick tan head. The head retention was very good. Very good aroma with courant, butterscotch, caramel, rye, citrus and graitfruit. The aroma drew me right in. Taste had a great malt and hop balance with the caramel really standing out. Mouthfeel was one of the best ever with a tickle on the palate and the caramel malts working so effectively. I have only positive things to say about this beer. The best I’ve had so far from Bear Republic. I’m just glad I can get this relatively near by.

Pours a deep amber / copper with caramel maltiness and citrus hops. Bought it a BevMo in Pasadena. THanks to that couple for suggesting Bear Republic.

Great beer from the Bear Republic. Very drinkable. Did not feel that strong of a beer. A little sticky with a little bit of smokiness. Hoppy balance.

bottle. mahogany-copper body, fluffy off-white head and a sticky lace. sweet hoppy aroma - thick resin... a light yeast background. starts out spritzy and quite malt accented but then the hops hit you! It’s not overwhelmingly hoppy which makes it a little easier to attain balance. thicky resin, creamy yeasty body. long sticky hoppy finish.

Crockett (1095) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2005
Pours clear dark red with probably the rockiest most ample tanned head that I have ever seen. The beer is actually pretty tricky to pour due to the amount and retention of the firm suds. Aroma is stong of citrus/grassy hop and equalled with sweet toffee like malts. Mouthfeel is excellent and creamy and the carry over from nose to palate is almost uncut. Lots of invert sugar to the point that it tastes almost English. Hops are always present, but not as forward as predicted. Wheaty, chocolate, toffee, and lovely bittersweet hops. Dry finish.
