COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Red Rocket is lively and up front, with a malt-inspired body and a crisp finish. Its character comes from a blend of Perle, Willamette and Cascade hops. Dry hopped with Cascade for a refreshing aroma.

kathouse (1105) - Nevada, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Good looking beer. Medium red with a decent froth. Some citrus hop and light caramel. Unfortunately, no hop flavor. Body was medium with plenty of malt, but only some bitterness left behind. Not my favorite.

DocJitsu (1045) - Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Pours a clear dark golden color with a creamy white head. Sweet citrus nose. Mouthfeel is a bit powdery. Ample bitterness. The malt character is not adequate. And there is a stale flavor that underlies the other characteristics.

12 oz. bottle. Bottled 01/2014. Pours a medium, ivory, well retained hed, with extensive lacing, over a slightly hazy, dark amber (SRM 15) body....nose is light pine, resin, citrus peel from the hops, light toasted malts with toast, biscuit tones, very light hints of toffee/caramel, minimal esters from the yeast....taste is light toffee/caramel sweetness with cereal tones. leading to a lightly floral, pine, resin, citrus peel moderate bitterness, minimal esters.....mouth feel, body is light of medium, clean light acid finish, low carbonation, with a clean smooth finish. This is a nicely balanced example of the style. It is a bit light on malt and hop complexity and could use more in both backbones. Would suggest adding more Cascade for the dry hopping, and a bit of crystal/caramel malt to up malt complexity and body. BJCP 7/3/15/4/6.

ajnepple (2537) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - JAN 19, 2014
12 oz bottle from Conifer Village Liquor. Amber, hazy appearance with a white head and minimal lacing. Aroma of sweet malts, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, citrus fruit and light bitter hops. Similar flavor, mild sweetness and mild bitterness with light fruitiness. Pretty light body. Not too good, probably been on the shelf for a while.
