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.

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.

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 it’s well hopped. Strong floral scent and a not too bitter citricy flavor abounds. This is for hop lovers!. I don’t 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!

Beer pours pretty clear burnt orange color with a totally retained beige colored head. Aroma is mostly citric hops, a nod to grapefruit juice also caramel. Flavor is really delicous. Very citrically hoppy, but in a very fresh fruit juice kind of way. Could drink a case of these easy.

Bottle. Pours a very hazy orange-tinted amber with a moderate dense yellow-tinted head. Very pleasing aromas of fresh lychees and subtle spice. Lovely balance of sweet alt and fruity aromatic hops (lychee, melon) with a finish that s quite quenching and surprisingly low on bitterness. A real treat!

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.

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...

Hoppy aroma. First impression is that this is a very nutty pale ale, more so even than some nut browns, but the hops make it better than many nut browns too. An odd pale ale, but enjoyable.

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.
