Very unique ale. Red Rocket pours a very dark reddish brown with big off white head that is retained. Flavor is extremely unique. There is a strong hop presence with an equally strong roasted/smokey malt flavor. Tasty.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 5, 2003
Deep ruby amber. Sticky light tan head. Malt, metallic, slightly piney, earthen nose. Starts sweet, caramel, lightly metallic, rich earthy hops, resinous, juicy, very drinkable, light bodied...Finishing, stone and chalky, grapefruit and piney goodness. Very quaffable, alcohol is definately hidden. I like it, I like it alot!

Copper red color, full head, hoppy nose. Malts dominate at first but then massive hops kick in. Lingering bitter finish. Unique.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2003
This deep red brew almost headed in the wrong direction when the typical Scottish ale malt flavors kicked in - I love the thickness of the malt, but there's always an odd taste to it. Well, I needn't worry about that this time - a HUGE hop kick comes in to save the day and pummel some of the malts into submission. What it ended up as was an exceptional strong ale with a wee bit of Scotch malt - tasty!

Libeerian (209) - Garner, North Carolina, USA - AUG 18, 2003
Big balanced hop/malt aroma and flavor with just a bit of smoke thrown in. This is the kind of beer I could just curl up with and watch the snow come down.

Reddish brown with a nice head. Peaty malts and massive hops hide every bit of alcohol. Caramel notes are strong at end. Hoppy in that West Coast tradition, even if it was supposed to be a Scottish Ale!

Lemon merangue appearance. Hoppy nose, very hoppy nose. Brown color, with a neat head. Interestingly fun. Bitter like.

hopscotch (9996) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 7, 2003
Sparkling clear copper ale with a lovely, reddish glow. Small, creamy, khaki-colored head with good lacing. The aroma is malty and very fruity. Notes of caramel, blackberries, burnt rubber and pineapple. Very malty and sweet flavor up front with blasts of berries and toffee. The hops really kick in to almost balance things out on the backside. The sweet malt wins out in the end, but the hops are really assertive. Left Coast beer! Left Coast beer! Medium to full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Long, very lightly bitter, acetic finish. Unusual, very good Scotch ale.

This is quite possibly the best beer I have ever tried. The deep red color is very inviting…but the taste. Yum. The balance is outstanding. I have never had a beer with such hops that had such a sweet malty kick. A must try for all hop heads. A real gem!
