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.

This is a well hopped pale ale. Light red/copper color. Smells fresh and hoppy. Strong hop flavor - grapefruit and pine - even has hints of wood in the mostly dry finish. I enjoyed this one.

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

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.

Pours a very light amber color. Smell is smooth and fruity and of mild hops. Taste is dusty, biscuity malt and hops are light and fruity. Some light yeast flavor is present too. Mild bitterness and a smooth, drinkable beer. Not bad.

jcr (2185) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - AUG 28, 2008
Draft at brewery. Small, off-white head atop a medium amber body. The aroma has notes of cookie, grapefruit and resin. Some pine in the background. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. The finish turns moderately bitter. Medium body with a watery texture. Ample carbonation. OK. And just OK, yet easy to drink. Why not go for one of Bristol’s IPA’s instead of this?
