3.66/5 rDev -9.6%
Appearance - A dark murky brown color. I guess I was expecting the hues to be a little more red based on the name.
Smell - The aroma is a little less than exciting. Dried grass or hay are present; I do not really detect the hops in the aroma.
Taste - In the initial taste, one detects sweet grass, something musty, and lemony hops. The citrus hits the drier side of the tongue. I am a little surprise by the absence of a malt backbone in this one. The modest hops linger in the aftertaste for a surprising time period based on the un-thickness of the beer.
Mouthfeel - I expect a little more malt in a red ale. Perhaps this is the reason Red Wheelbarrow seems relatively thin.
Overall - I generally like red ales, but I think this one is pretty average. The lack of a malt in the taste bothers me.

In a MBC pint glass this beer was a hazy rust color. There as a thick tan head, and a moderate amount of sticky lace.
Mostly a citrus aroma. Some grassy hops and caramel malt.
Grapefruit taste up front, followed by the grassy hops. Sweet caramel background.
A hop-forward beer, easy to drink.

4.2/5 rDev +3.7%
Dark honey colroed with a half inch head of oatmeal colored foam that lingers long, and leaves big webs and pinwheels of lace on the insides of the glass as it's drained.
Inviting aroma of toffee, cinnamon, brown sugar, and grapefruit.
Bright and pungent hoppy flavors upfront, full of pine and grapefruit, assertive bitterness. A subtle malt backbone rides beneath, but hops fully overpowers.
Full mouthfeel, puckers the cheeks, finishes with a carbonation tingle. Great beer.
