Red Rocket Ale

22 oz bomber, thanks to Solomon420 for the trade.
True balance is rare, this beer has it. The pour is exceptional; tawny brown body, AMAZING light tan colored head and great, lingering, complex lace. Put it all together and you have a great looking pint.
Nutty brown ale feel with a dose of centennial hops on top. Bitterness is there but it is beautifully inter-woven into the malts and the beer boasts 65 IBU’s of sheer balance. A mild, tea like after taste including a tannin dry finish.
Nose is sweet and clean, and the package comes together to make the beer nigh on impossible to put down. A classic American Amber that is possibly THE best example of the style out there.
In a way I am glad that this is not distributed in GA since I enjoy it all the more when I get a chance to tuck in.
