thedm (5976) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 18, 2012
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a strongly carbonated very hazy dark red brown colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was vinous and malt hop. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish mild vinous hop aftertaste. The thick flavor contained notes of Irish red malt brown malt Cascade hops and malt. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

Towey1989 (2217) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2017
Bottle at The Bottle Lab, Leek. Pours a slightly hazy amber colour with a frothy beige head. Aroma of caramel, toast, pine, some red berries, slight orange and subtle spicy hops. Taste of caramel, toast, resin, red berries, some jammy fruits, slight orange, a little grapefruit and subtle spicy hops. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry, fruity, resinous hop bitterness in the finish. A really flavourful amber ale, perfectly balanced. Lots of caramel and fruit with great citrus, spice and resinous hoppiness. Very nice.

Hopmaestro (1490) - rebro, SWEDEN - JAN 3, 2017
Aroma is "red" malty and dusty with a sweet lingering sensation. Taste is dark toffee with a light brown sugar touch. Red berries and murky hay. There is something in here that does not appeal to me at all and totally destroys the experience. Is it licorice? Cant come to terms with this one.

MelvinKalksma (1297) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 13, 2016

Medium aroma of malts, caramel, orange, pine, hops, citrus and grapefruit.

Turbid/opaque dark orange/dark brown beer with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium off-white/beige head.

Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, orange and pine; ends slightly bitter and dry with hops, citrus and grapefruit.

This beer is intense, complex and balanced. What a great, thick and creamy head. The aroma could have been stronger thanks to this. Lovely soft caramel/hop flavour too. Great beer for its style.

More piney hops, bitter orange, dark malts, soft carnation, medium bodied, long-duration, quite bitter and dry finish. Super intense and powerful Amber Ale, great flavours and complexity.

leghorn99 (256) - roma, ITALY - SEP 27, 2016
La Red Rocket versa nel bicchiere di colore mogano, quasi marrone, con riflessi rosso rubino e risultando molto limpida; spessa schiuma, densa e cremosa, bianca, di buona persistenza e allacciatura. Aroma iniziale dominato dal luppolo, pino e note agrumate (pompelmo); percezione anche di malto, che per rimane in secondo piano rispetto alla supremazia luppolata. In bocca si viene frontalmente attaccati dal luppolo, subito percezione di amaro, di resina e di secchezza. Solo successivamente con lo scaldarsi della birra, fa la sua comparsa il malto caramellato, ed altri notevoli sapori: pompelmo, mandarino, ananas, pesca, mango, limone / buccia darancia, pino, caramello, zucchero di canna, biscotto. Fantastica complessit e buon equilibrio, decisa carbonazione, corpo pieno; una leggera astringenza ed una moderata amarezza, alcool ben nascosto percepito solo nel finale.
