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.

Crafty07 (404) - Florence, Kentucky, USA - MAY 30, 2009
copper pour from a 12oz bottle, the last several reviewers describe it perfectly, miminal head, little lacing, hoppy aroma and malty body with a decent bitterness and medium cabronation. In other words, a good american pale ale.

mrbirmingham (37) - Kansas, USA - APR 19, 2009
Aroma: Citrus floral aroma with matly notes. Appearance: Deep copper (orange high lights), off white head, slight haze Flavor: Balanced towards the hop (bitterness), strong malt back bone with hop flavoring Mouth feel: Medium body, a tingling effervescence on the side of the tongue. Overall Impression: Refreshing and hoppy with strong malt support system.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 7, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2009 Pours sparkling amber with a moderate, white, pillowy head which leaves a very small layer and minimal lace. Nose is typical of poor APA’s with sweat, grass, faint cookie, and light citrus. Flavor is much of the same; sweat, wet grass, a little herbal, and faint pine with some sweet bread notes. Palate is lively, light to medium, and watery. Finishes quickly with wet grass and faint sweet breads. Bitterness is moderately light in this boring APA. Nothing too remarkable here.

DuffMan (6438) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 30, 2008
Bottle. Pours a very hazy orange-tinted amber with a moderate dense yellow-tinted head. Very pleasing aromas of fresh lychees and subtle spice. Lovely balance of sweet alt and fruity aromatic hops (lychee, melon) with a finish that s quite quenching and surprisingly low on bitterness. A real treat!

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - OCT 26, 2008
This along with the Laughing Lab was easily the best brew that I had on my visit to Colorado Springs several years back. A very light and smooth session beer with not a ton of flavor to it, but just enough to get the job done. Solid effort by these guys.

jcr (2155) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - AUG 28, 2008
Draft at brewery. Small, off-white head atop a medium amber body. The aroma has notes of cookie, grapefruit and resin. Some pine in the background. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. The finish turns moderately bitter. Medium body with a watery texture. Ample carbonation. OK. And just OK, yet easy to drink. Why not go for one of Bristol’s IPA’s instead of this?

lb4lb (2453) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 24, 2008
Pours a very light amber color. Smell is smooth and fruity and of mild hops. Taste is dusty, biscuity malt and hops are light and fruity. Some light yeast flavor is present too. Mild bitterness and a smooth, drinkable beer. Not bad.

beerheart (237) - Erie, Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Poured with no head and little carbonation. I’m wondering if I got a bad bottle. This tasted very metallic on the front end and had a lingering, roasted malt aftertaste, with little hop flavor at all. I had expected a big hop flavor, because many of the Colorado brewers are extreme-hopping even their pales. I’m fine that there wasn’t a lot of hop to this--it’s more in keeping with the pale ale style. But it’s the watery, metallic taste that is ultimately dissatisfying.

AmEricanbrew (5575) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - FEB 8, 2008
Clear copper color with a 1 finger head. Mild aroma of cascade hops and bready malts. Nice taste of caramel sweet malts with a nicely bitter pine hop taste to finish. 101606
