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.

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.

copper pour from a 12oz bottle, the last several reviewers describe it perfectly, miminal head, little lacing, hoppy aroma and malty body with a decent bitterness and medium cabronation. In other words, a good american pale ale.

One of my early BA reviews. Appearance: A pale orange color with a slight haze. Bubbles rise quickly and constantly to the surface, but there is no significant head. Smell: The smell of the glass itself seems stronger than the beer, unless the beer smells like glass. Slightly dry with a subtle bitterness. Nothing notable in terms of fruity or piney smells. Malt seems to dominate. Taste: Dry and bitter. Malt dominates, with only (slightly lemony) bitterness giving any indication that hops were used at all. The finish is almost entirely pale malt flavor. Kind of like what youíd expect from a bottle if it were just labeled "Beer." Mouthfeel: Medium body, but possibly just very very carbonated. Prickly in a way. Drinkability: About average. It wonít kick your tastebuds much, but it could be good with a burger or something. If youíre only drinking beer, youíll probably get bored of the flavor unless itís being used primarily as a social lubricant.

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...

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

beerheart (237) - Erie, Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Poured with no head and little carbonation. Iím wondering if I got a bad bottle. This tasted very metallic on the front end and had a lingering, roasted malt aftertaste, with little hop flavor at all. I had expected a big hop flavor, because many of the Colorado brewers are extreme-hopping even their pales. Iím fine that there wasnít a lot of hop to this--itís more in keeping with the pale ale style. But itís the watery, metallic taste that is ultimately dissatisfying.

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.

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
