Notes/Commercial Description:
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).

Five hundred milliliter bottle shared by Andrew - thanks. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a clear dark red almost amber under a quarter-inch thick off-white head which fades to the rim and leaves spotty lace.

N: Citrusy (orange, tangerine) hops, rosewater, malts.

T: Grainy malts well balanced with citrusy hops along with dates or raisins.

M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Finishes semi-dry and mildly sweet grains and citrusy.

O: Interesting style, another change-up, and enjoyed.
