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!

I had this on tap at The Pint House in Fullerton. Itís an amber colored pour with an off white head. The flavor has a very good balance of hops and malt. Very tasty and drinkable.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - JUL 16, 2011
Tap at the brewery. Rating #6. Great looking beer, slight haze and it was a beautiful dark red color. Nice aroma, nice bit of hops with a nice light toasty sweetness. Flavor was similar, good bit if hops balanced by a nice maltiness that made it real drinkable, good stuff. (1799)

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. Itís all a little thin, but the flavors are robust in combination - was that a contradiction there? Anyway, itís maltily, hoppily spritely. Making me think of rum and coke. Non sequitur. Tasty drink, but a bit unusual.

This is the first batch of what will become a new production beer of theirs. They didnít have a catchy name for it yet, so at this point itís just "Red Ale". A: The pour lives up to the expectations of the style. Amber in color with a finger of khaki colored head. S: Starts off with a nice citrus hop note of grapefruit and tangerine. The hops quickly segue to the malt aromas of toast and bread. A mild toffee aroma and some red fruit flavors. T: A similar story on the palate. Grapefruit and tangerine hops and just a subtle pine bitterness. Toasted bread, toffee, and a slight caramel sweetness. There are some red berry type flavors in there as well. M: Medium in body and carbonation. O: Looking to see what kind of tweaks that will be made to this beer as they continue to brew it.

22 oz. bomber from Perryís. 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.

13th May 2015: on tap in JFAT (Jimmyís Famous American Tavern) Dana Point, Orange County. Chestnut red and clear, the fast fading head being beige in colour. Malty molasses rule the nose and taste with a chocolate like finish to the treacle/caramel flavours: my sweet tooth like it.
