Like many of our beers, Red Wheelbarrow (which started out as a pilot batch brewed by Brewer Dan Roberts) doesn’t fit neatly into a style category — think of it as a stronger, more hop-forward interpretation of a traditional red ale. Red Wheelbarrow is not, however, a “red IPA” — there is robust malt character (think raisin and fig) on both the nose and palate that temper the abundant hop presence (think citrus fruit).

Big tan head atop a ruby hued beer with tons of lacing left behind. Floral, spicy, and earthy hop presence with a crusty toasted bread like backdrop. Taste follows with the floral hops and perfectly balanced by that toasted malty backdrop. Taste is good but somewhat linear and one dimensional. Medium mouthfeel and bigger carbonation than I was expecting. This is a good red ale but I don't prefer it to the likes of Nugget Nectar.
