Served in a perfect pint glass
A - It pours a ruddy orange color with visible yeast in it. It is topped with three inches of tan, almost mocha, head that leaves some nice lacing as it slowly recedes.
S - The aroma is a good blend of citrus hops and bread and toffee malt.
T - The taste is more hop forward. They are the focus of the taste, but I still get a sense of the bready malt.
M - Moderate leaning towards full. More than expected.
O - I expected this beer to be hoppy due to its higher rating. I didn't realize that it was going to be so well balanced and just a delicious beer. I could easily drink this beer for hours and not tire of the taste.

Red Rocket – Amber Ale (6.8%) - Bear Republic (California)
App: Pours a slightly hazy amber brown with a big three finger tan head that retains really well and leaves a lot of lacing up the sides as it settles. No bubble stream.
Smell: Nose is mostly fruity hops aroma with a slight buttery malt character that is sweet and assertive. Hints of pine and grapefruit. Tiniest bit of alcohol.
Taste: Very sweet, somewhat toasted malt profile on the foretaste, progressing to a balanced true taste that showcases pleasant hops bitterness balanced agains some light toffee flavors. After taste is considerably more bitter, with a slight astringency due to the resinous nature of the hops. Flavors really open up as beer warms, with sweetness coming more to the front and making for a very drinkable hoppy amber with notes of toffee, pine and citrus.
Mouth: (Notes Missing)
