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.

RSRIZZO (1900) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 23, 2007
Had this beer on 2/24/1999. Color is a nice nut brown with low carbonation and very little head. Aroma has light malt tones and good hop scents in it. Taste good but a bit flat. It starts with a medium body that seems a bit heavier than it is because of the carbonation being low. Goes down smooth with the hop flavor coming out right away. The finish is a light malt flavor with strong hop flavorings and a mild hop bitterness.

Atom (1817) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 5, 2010
12oz bottle pours copper/amber in color with a small off-white head. Aroma us pine, citrus, caramel and spice. Taste begins with a nice mellow bitterness into pine and citrus and the it just falls into nothing the taste stops there. I feel like the is half a decent beer but needs a bright finish.

Fatehunter (1687) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Pint glass, half finger of head. Cloudy, copper colored body. Smell is malty, wet grain in a barnyard. Not great. Taste is sour with mild bitterness. It’s a bit disjointed. Smooth texture, moderate carbonation and medium body. Not too impressed with this. Not horrible, but missing the mark.
