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.

I thought it had a nice smooth taste and a great redish apperance. However, I just can't get past how watery it was for an APA.

Nice pour - a lovely redhead with good head. Oh, wait, I am supposed to be describing the beer not the porn I am watching. Yea, the beer taste good too.

Fort Collins Brew Fest 2003: Fairly hazy. Citrus aroma, definitely of Cascade hops, the taste, too. This was nice and refreshing during a nice hot Colorado summer day.

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 12, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2007 Bottle (May 07 bottling). Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (wort, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (resin), moderately yeasty (dough, sweat). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Very bland and boring. Slightly worty aroma and lots of raw yeast stink, as with many of Bristol’s year-round brews.

Out of the bottle--looks nice in an ale glass; medium coppper with a decent head. Whee! That first sniff packs a nice wallop of tastes to come. Seems slightly watery at first but the Cascade hopping fills in nicely. It would be mighty easy to put a lot of these away on a hot day...

Good bottle pour with thick copper color and a off white head. Good solid hops to the nose on the aroma. Nice hop bitterness to start with a good balace in the middle. A little watery finish, but still a good solid pale ale.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 5, 2003
Ahh, I love the smell of Cascade's after a hard days work. Well carbonated amber pour produced a slowly dissipating tan head. Very light bodied for the style. Nice bitterness. Somewhat grassy finish. Decent brew, awesome aroma.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 26, 2002
I wish I liked Cascade a bit more than I do. Tons of white pine cascade hops aroma. Slightly hazy amber color with a moderate head. Light bodied with sharp hops bitterness coupled with a light malt sweetness. Thinkens a bit as it warms, but still quite thin. Finishes with a slight astringency and hay light dryness. Great aroma but lacks in body to be a really good APA.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2004 Smooth and soft mouthfeel. Malts had elements of caramel, cookie dough and toast. Nice hop aromas and some balancing bitterness. Well balanced beer. More like an English bitter than an American Pale Ale. Pretty easy to drink; nice session beer.
