12oz. bottle poured into a nonic.
(A)- Pours a nice dark crimson red color. Produced a nice cap of tan froth that stuck around awhile before dissipating. Some lacing left behind.
(S)- A nice lightly spicy profile with bits of subtle toasted malt and some slight fruitiness in a yeast sense.
(T)- Similar to the smell, only more bright piney hop citrus shows up amidst the lightly spicy toasted aspect from the aroma.
(M)- A good carbonation level and balance. The hop level is high, but supplemented well with the toasty amber malts and subtle fruitiness from the background. Bitter, but restrained.
(O)- This really is a quality red ale. Lightly spiced and with a good hop profile. Have had this numerous times throughout the years, but never sat down and reviewed this til now. Definitely a classic for this style and an easy drinker at that.

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)
Home tasting, 12oz bottle into Tulip. 2/21/14.
