Red Rocket is more of a hybrid American Red Ale / Wee Heavy... It's not an authentic American Red Ale anymore than Killians is an authentic Irish Red Lager.

Wee Heavy - Scotch Ales traditionally go through a long boil in the kettle for a caramelization of the wort. This produces a deep copper to brown in colored brew. Compared to Scottish Ales, they'll be sweeter and fuller-bodied, and of course higher in alcohol, with a much more pronounced malty caramel and roasted malt flavor.

An actual quote about Red Rocket...

"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."

Good thing that I didn't make a Red Rocket clone, then.
