6.8 % ABV
Bear Republic Red Rocket Ale is an amber ale, but because it is made by a California brewer it is hoppier than the typical beer of the style. This beer is hoppy and bitter like an IPA but has more sweetness than IPAs, as a result of the amber malts. The hopiness and maltiness balance each other out resulting in a very tasty drink.
At 6.8%, Red Rocket is stronger than the average beer. The alcohol content combined with the bitter hoppiness may make this beer challenging for a novice drinker but anyone who likes IPAs should enjoy this beer.
