Dommage que j’ai bu cette bière dans la même soirée que la el diablo du lièvre. La Red Rocket Ale est rafraichissante mais sans arrière gout, après que la gorgé est prise les saveurs se dissipent

snowdog140 (37) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2014
Quite a sweet and malted aroma which I found very intriguing, the ruby appearance with a little head is very attractive too. For its colouring I’d expect a very malted and earthy taste, and while you get bits of that there’s also a strong taste of hops. A really interesting brew, definitely recommended.

Jayturcot (7) - - MAY 18, 2014 does not count
Hopped up (American style?) amber ale. Not overpowering hops but very strong. Red in color, but bitter in taste. Very different the fat tire that preceeded this and is actually lending more points to Fat Tire. Disclaimer : not a fan of hops.

hazy dark amber with a dark beige head, lots of pine and dank hops. full bodied, moderate carbonation, sticky toffee apple malt balanced well by resinous pine hops and some citrus pith. just how i like my american ambers. good stuff.

cthomas2390 (221) - Colorado, USA - APR 29, 2014
Very nice reddish brown pour, head quickly disipates. Citrus, resiny hops meld into a great toasted caramel malt flavour. Body is rich, with loads of sweet bread that is backed by a prominent bitterness.

badpuppy69 (239) - orange, California, USA - APR 28, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2014 Pours a brownish red with a huge head. Aroma is Sweet roasted malt and citrucy hop notes. Taste follows the Aroma well with some spices upfront and hop notes lingering on the back end. Medium mouth feel very smooth. Awesome Brew!
