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!!
