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.

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 didnít have a lot of character or a lot of flavor.

from brewery in taster. Looks like light apricots. Some head. Smells pretty good. Tastes not so good. Hardly any hops noticable. Pretty weak pale ale compared to what i have been drinking (a lot of Daleís!) Overall 4 of 10

This is a great pale ale that goes great with dinner. Nice copper pour with a malty aroma. The flavor is mildly hoppy and smooth. I would recommend this one to anyone who likes local pales or well balanced beer

This is a good APA but tasted much better at the brewery than it does in the bottle. The hop character is aggresive for a pale ale but itís to my liking.

12 oz. bottle from Morganís. Drank on 8/17/06. Very clear, solid copper. Not really much red about it. 1 cm. creamy off white head. Drops fairly quickly to a thin layer of foam. Aroma - dominant grainy, malty, cerealy aroma. Tiny bit of sweetness, not much hops. Flavor - moderate up front bitterness. Fairly balanced in the middle, but towards bitterness. After the swallow is a dominant grainy, cerealy malt flavor - no real hop flavor. Palate - pretty light, good carb. Overall - Itís OK, but not great. I enjoy it, but for an APA I donít get much hop character at all. Maybe more like an EPA or ESB. Good beer, just not hoppy enough for an APA. Could use a little more body too.

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.

Pretty mild tasting pale ale. I taste the requisite hops, but on this tasting not much else.

Pours deep amber with an enduring off-white head and plenty of lacing. Aroma of zesty hops. Quite sweet at the start, it finishes with a nutty, spicy flavor worthy of a good Belgian ale. The pine, citrus, and floral hop notes are in great harmony. I picked up this beer somewhat by accident and found a new favorite.

Aroma: Citrus floral aroma with matly notes. Appearance: Deep copper (orange high lights), off white head, slight haze Flavor: Balanced towards the hop (bitterness), strong malt back bone with hop flavoring Mouth feel: Medium body, a tingling effervescence on the side of the tongue. Overall Impression: Refreshing and hoppy with strong malt support system.

I had this one on tap at House of Brews in Manhattan. I really enjoyed this APA. It had a deep coppery color and an off white head with good legs. It had the appearance of a malty sweet ale but once your nose gets near it, you know itís well hopped. Strong floral scent and a not too bitter citricy flavor abounds. This is for hop lovers!. I donít understand some of the other ratings on this beer---must have had a flat/stale keg. I agree with another rater who said he could drink a case!
