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.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2007 Amber with a thin veil. Heavenly citric nose. Excellent balance on a solid malt base. Beautiful goodness of those NW hops. God, I love beer.

(12oz bottle thanks to BMan1113VR) Pours clear medium yellow with film of bubbles. Nose of faded hops, sweet grain, very subdued grapefruit. Taste of earth, rye, grain, with a creamy but undercarbonated and slightly thin finish. Had this been more fresh it may have been better.

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 20, 2011
Nose is floral and lightly sweet. Not much going on. Pours hazy golden, thin head. THe flavor is lightly sweet, a touch of bread, pale malt, and light spicy floral hops. A touch of citrus. Easy to drink, not that interesting, sessionalbe APA.

onceblind (5490) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Tap at brewery. Clear light amber with a thin spotty head. Smells almost of a meaty herbal spaghetti sauce...not sure what to make of that. Herbal hops, a touch of rosemary, earthy toffee malts, and just a tone of sausage or something on the nose. Flavor is grainy and herbal with a nice balancing bitterness, finishing off-dry with an aftertaste of floral hop resin. Not shabby, just a little confusing.

notalush (5360) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 7, 2010
Another inoffensive, drinkable, yet uninspiring bottled offering from this brewery - a fairly sturdy malt base sets up and earthy cascade flavor - high hop flavor, but low hop bitterness - some herbal, tea-like character - medium sweet - a little yeasty in the finish - peppery on the tail end - okay.

Sampled on 10/6/2012. This American Pale Ale pours a medium orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head, with decent lacing. The aroma is caramel, fruity and sweet, with some citrusy hops. A medium bodied American Pale Ale. The malts are caramel, fruiy, bready and sweet. The hops are citrusy and floral. Decent carbonation. Nice balance of hops and malts. Decent Pale Ale. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Draft @ brewpub. Amber. Bright hop overtone in aroma but not dominant, it smells pretty balanced. Balanced but uneventful, easy going with a good hop finish.

JPDIPSO (5107) - 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.

nuplastikk (5072) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 3, 2010
12oz bottle. Hazy orange-tan, with a foamy, patchy head. Toasty, bitter aroma. Medium bodied, quite easy to drink, approaching watery. Solid crisp bitter hoppiness, really evens out the creamy Vienna-malt tones. A touch of fruity ale yeast flavors in there too. OK, sort of a light West Coast Pale with some fruity Oktoberfest/Amber tones going on as well.

bottle thanks to bman1113vr. deep amber with a white head. caramel, light fruity hops and not much else. thin palate, light hop flavors, smooth esters and that about sums it up.
