Pours a beautiful deep ruby red, with a mostly lasting creamy tan head that laces lightly. Aroma is toasted malts, caramel and a slew of piney hops. Flavor mostly toasted malts, with a hint of sweet caramel, the middle and end brings in an onslaight of pine & citrus from the hops. Big, full body, goes down easy, flavors linger nicely on the tongue.

Caramelly amber. Deep and hoppy, with both nice bitterness and flavor. There is a slight touch of smokiness in the background. Nice.

22 oz. Bottle. Poured a dark ruby red color with a long lasting tan head. The lacing was amazing! Deep in flavor, rich in hops and overall it was delicious!

In bitterness, the Red Rocket falls just below the Racer 5, and has considerably more malt, though hops continue to dominate the flavor profile. A beautiful, rich light brown color, with a lasting beige fluffy head, the Red Rocket gives off a strong hoppy aroma, warning you of what's to come. Sort of a Double IPA with malt. Very good.

03 Bottle. One of the best looking beers I've seen. Reddish brown mahogany, bright but wavy. Tons of sediment due to bottle conditioning. Very hazy. Big rich yellow-beige head. Incredible amount of lacing. Smells of lots of bittersweet hops, maybe the slightest bit of scotch-like aroma. Flavor is mostly hoppy (pretty high alpha content) but has a well balanced medium dry caramel malt backbone. Creamy texture. Finish is clean and surprisingly not that bitter. Touch of light roasted barley. I almost think there is a touch of scotch-like alcohol flavor, but I might just be thinking that. Spicy, full, balanced and very very drinkable. The flavor could stand to be a bit more complex, however.

Reddish brown hue with a very nice creamy off-white head that just doesn't quit, very good lace. The aroma hints of pine, grapefruit, roasted malt, butterscotch, wood, and spice. The taste has a solid backbone of malt and sweetness to balance against the hoppy pine character and bitterness. The additional undertones of burnt wood, light citrus, and blended spices work well and enhance the flavor. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with the expected dry finish. What a wonderful brew, big yet sublime, surprising. Recommended.

This is some good stuff - certain elements remind me of Arrogant Bastard - lots of malts, but not overly sweet, still plenty of hops in the mix - caramel and chocolate - tasty and heavy.

irishsnake (355) - Oakland, California, USA - NOV 5, 2003
A really nice malty/hoppy beer, with a big American hop nose and bitterness, well balanced by a sweet, caramel-y/roasty malt body. An excellent strong amber ale.

Big beautiful frothy head that leaves very nice lacing. Deep clear ruby color. Malty hoppy aroma, citrus and sweetness. Man this beer smells good. Flavor is awesome, big malty chewiness balanced by a very nice hop bitterness. Body is medium full and very chewy. What a beer. This beer deserves better reviews then it gets!
