Bear Republic- Red Rocket

A HUGE thanks to Pimpp for this 1.

A- Dark reby reddish brown with a thick chunky lacing head.
S- Oily pine hops and caramel malt.
T- Delicious strong oily pine hops evenly blended with a sweet creamy caramel malt.
M- Slighty bitter up front with a chewy, slighty buttery, finish. Big flavors throughout.

Overall- By far the best Amber I've ever had! To me its an Amber/ West Coast IPA blend! I honestly think this is a perfect beer!!

One of the best. It tastes Scottish. It tastes Red. Huge bristly hops. Starts strong and lingers, then lingers some more. I'm so glad this is so easy to find in California. East Coasters, Southerners, Midwesterners: it's worth hunting down.

The review cops tell me I've got to have at least 250 characters here, so I'm writing more.
