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: 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.

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.

Bottle pours Orange w/ medium particles & white head excellent lacing and mostly lasting. Hay aroma. Light sweet with a bitter punch, it really pushes the upper end of the IBU for most Pale Ales. A complex beer with both malty & hoppy flavors coming through.

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.

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.

Typical American hop aroma, reasonable malty body. Well balanced, easy drinking session APA. Certainly nothing special.

Falconseye8 (542) - Evans, Colorado, USA - DEC 15, 2011
This was my most dissappointing beer of this Sampler Pack. Maybe I drank a bad bottle but this doesn’t rate high for me. Rather bland and too bready for my palate. Disappointing.

jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 8, 2004
Nice piney, floral nose over a thin off white head with little retention and no lacing. Nice amber/brown colr with very slight haze. Flavor is pine resin with mild bitterness that lingers. American hops (Cascade and Liberty?) evident. Lacks individuality and hop character. May be a bit old.

Great pale ale. Coppery color, thin fizzy head. Light nose. Decent mounthfeel. A bit of malts and decent hopping.
