COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A classic example of an American Red, Rocco Red Ale has enough caramel malts to stand up to the pungent pine and citrus flavors and aromas from the Chinook, Cascade and Columbus hops. The malty goodness, balanced bitterness and plenty of classic hop character may just have you writing home to mom!

Bomber from Craft Beer Kings. Pours copper with an off-white head. Aroma is treacle/toffee with suggestions of hops. Med body, at least. Flavor is rather hoppy - citrus/pine, accompanied by some nifty thinly treacle malt flavors. It’s all a little thin, but the flavors are robust in combination - was that a contradiction there? Anyway, it’s maltily, hoppily spritely. Making me think of rum and coke. Non sequitur. Tasty drink, but a bit unusual.

joeneugs (3687) - Livermore, California, USA - SEP 20, 2014
22 oz. bomber from Perry’s. It pours a clear amber red color with an orangy head. The aroma is nicely balanced between toasted malt and piney hops. Some background notes of red fruit and syrup. Nice. The flavor is very piney with some caramel and red fruit. Hints of molasses like syrup before a piney bitter finish. Not a bad hoppy red, but kind of underwhelming and a little too sweet.

Nothing too special here except loooong finish. Solid mouthfeel but not hitting me over the head with complexity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2012
Draft at the brewery. Pours a hazy, golden apricot color with a half finger white head that immediately settles into a thin ring. Minimal spots of lace. Earthy hop aroma with lots of malt sweetness. Hints of caramel, toffee, hazelnut and subtle fruit countered by floral, piney hops. Medium bodied with a blast of dry, bitter hops that linger over the sweeter malt notes into a dry finish.  Much hoppier than the nose suggests with lots of dank pine needle flavor that’s countered by caramel, toffee, nut and light fruit. Finishes dry. A bit thin but easy to drink and flavorful.
