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.

Dark orange, thin head. Nutty, roasted malt aroma. Nice overall hop presence. Balanced.

3fourths (7977) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 29, 2005
Amber colored with a lot of floating particles. Malt aroma has some cherry and plum notes, mostly an old grain smell. Thick, malty, sweet red ale type texture and flavor... there are definitly some nut flavors hidden beneath the semi-sweet, oily cedar flavors. Buttered nuts, perhaps is more accurate. Light cedar and toffee hop finish, marginal bitterness. I prefer an APA to contain more citrus flavors and be a little more hopped, but this try is not that bad. Drinkable and tasty.

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 26, 2004
Typical American hop aroma, reasonable malty body. Well balanced, easy drinking session APA. Certainly nothing special.

BeerandBlues2 (9596) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 11, 2004
Light amber with a tall off-white head. Fair lacing. Fragrant floral hoppy aromas. Bitter hop flavor. Fizzy palate.

Terminus (3231) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - AUG 15, 2004
tap at brewery-pours a light copper hue with minimal white head. piney hop aroma but not the basic cascade note thing going. slighty green and earthy hop flavors and nice toasty malts make presence in the flavors. More an ESB than a pale ale. Nice refreshing body that has a very clean finish. nice pale ale!

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUL 28, 2004
In the bottle at the 2004 Crescent Moon Vintage Beer Tasting. Nice! A great example of the style. Red amber in color. Very hoppy. I love visiting this brewpub as the folks there are super nice. I hope to get back there soon and rate all their beers.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JUL 17, 2004
Clouded amber hue, decent head formation. Baked bread, yeasty malty aroma. Sweet malty, bready with dark fruit flavor. Mild bitterness in the finish but subdued by the heavy malt content. Fairly unique take on a much cloned style.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUL 15, 2004
This is a well hopped pale ale. Light red/copper color. Smells fresh and hoppy. Strong hop flavor - grapefruit and pine - even has hints of wood in the mostly dry finish. I enjoyed this one.

Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUN 20, 2004
I don’t know about a malt-inspired body, it tasted mostly of hops. But it is a decent and inoffensive brew in and of itself. Looks nice, with a proper head and nice foamy lace. I could see this beer being popular with a wide range of beer drinkers.

fuyajo (229) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 14, 2004
Medium head, pours to an orange-red color. This beer smelled really good. There are hints of apricots. It is not a hoppy pale ale, and is smooth and kind of creamy. However, overall, this beer didn’t have a lot of character or a lot of flavor.
