Red Rocket Ale is a bastardized Scottish style red ale that traces it's origins to our homebrew roots. This full bodied and hoppy brew finishes on the palate with sweet, caramel malt flavors.

The malt flavor of this beer is awesome, lip smacking good and tasty. But it gets overwhelmed by the bitter. What would have been an extremely high beer fell down under 4 because the bitter was to much, took away from the tasty. If you are a hop head, this one should be right in your wheel house.
