750ml, spring 2013
The Bruery tulip

A: Hazy deep orange/amber color. Three fingers of fluffy really off white leading to tan head. Marshmallow like head. Lots of good bottle carbonation. Sticky lacing sheets.

S: Lots of piney earthy hops on the notes. Some sweet malty backbone is there. Some nuttiness. Caramel. Toffee. And a really clean wood note, much like label describes.

T: Nice hit of pine bitterness right up front on the tongue. Very earthy on the hop bill. The malts really are the star here, as they should be in a red ale. Sweet, nutty and delicious. Really think the roundness of this brew is from the percentage aged in oak and bottle conditioning. Just really solid. Finish is dry with lingering pine and sweetness from malts.

M: Medium bodied. Round mouthfeel from oak addition.

Serving type: bottle

4.13/5  rDev +4.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance - Deep clear orangeish ruby with a thick white two finger head with good retention.

Aroma - Caramel, citrus, vanilla, strong centennial hop profile,

Taste - Citrus, caramel , vanilla, dark fruit, strong fresh hops, light oak that comes through as the vanilla/woodyness . Not too full bodied but enough to carry the hops and oak well. Blends deliciously.

Overall - Complex yet balanced. Not over the top. I think they did a very good job with this one. Very approachable and also complex. The Bruery can do no evil.

Serving type: bottle
