Bear Republic Red Rocket Ale ....

Tonight I will have a Red Rocket Ale from Bear Republic Brewing Company.  The twelve ounce bottle shows 6.8% ABV.  The web site lists 67 IBUs.

This beer poured with a small, tan head.  Beer color is a very dark copper leaning towards brown.  The aroma has dark fruit, caramel, brown sugar - overall sweet.  The taste has more of the same, but with some nice hops thrown in - adds a little bitter, citrus and pine.  Bready.  On the strong side of medium bodied.  The aftertaste leaves you with a little of the bitterness and some sweetness.  Tasty!
