2.3/5  rDev -40.7%

Grassy notes, a bit of citrus. Too light yet too hoppy, and very one note (even for a session ale). Not my thing.

A - Bottle Rocket is an only slightly hazy pale golden colore. It's somewhere between honey colored and ripe straw. Head is dense, white and lasting.

S - Bottle Rocket's aroma starts out with the up front pine resin aroma of hops. Beneath that is a spicy, honeyed aroma. Honey becomes more caramel oriented as we move into the aroma's center. Bottle Rocket's nose turns back towards hops in the finish, giving pine resin coupled with aromas of fresh cut grass.

T - At first blush Bottle Rocket's flavor seems fairly straightforward. Body is medium - light and starts across my tongue with the spicy honey notes I found in the nose. Center comes out with a subtle combination of caramel and bready malts. Bottle Rocket's finish is full of pine resin hops, practically smacking the back of my tongue.

O - Overall, not bad. Even though its profile seems straightforward at first this is a very solid pale ale. Its honeyed and malt qualities provide sweetness and flavor that stand up well to the hoppy finish.

Poured from a 355ml can. Pours a bright pale yellow. Surprisingly light in colour. The nose is very West Coast-style IPA, with lots of bright cannabis and citrus notes. It's a very light-bodied beer over all with not much sweetness, lots of grainy malt notes and plenty of tangy lemon/grapefruit hop notes. Refreshing!

12oz Can received in trade with Rejtable - thanks!

Appearance - Clear gold colour with an average size off white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some good lacing. The head lasted for around 3-4 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, hops, grains, citrus, a mustiness

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, caramel, and grassy hops. There is also a bit some light citrus and some breads/grains.

Overall - A very drinkable beer with just enough flavour to keep it light yet interesting. Definitely something I'd buy again if readily available to me. The one draw back is some sort off odd musty type smell going on.. but it's very light.
