COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tulsa Rugby Ale is an American Pale Ale brewed with Summit and Chinook hops. Itís a medium-bodied ale with notes of biscuit that nicely compliment the piney resin notes the hops add.

Bottle shared by Phil. Thanks! Orange pour with a white head. Nice fruity hop aromas of pineapple, grapefruit, and passion fruit. A bit of lemon zest, apricot, and bread. The flavor is surprisingly muted and muddled, particularly compared to the aroma. Bitter hops, some grapefruit and pineapple, lemon peel, and grass. Subtle tropical notes.

355mL thanks to deyholla! Clearer dark orange pour with medium creamy foam. Great lacing. Nose is gamey melon, soap, hints of metal. Taste is dry, soapy, drained, grassy, lemongrass bitters. Mild butterscotch body. A bit disappointing. Similar strange hop character as the Prairie Standard.

12 fl oz bottle. From a trade with deyholla. Cheers!
Cloudy deep golden colour with a small white head. Mild sweet aroma with some cookie, fruit and malty notes. The flavour is much drier. Strong hoppy bitterness and some malty sweetness. Thereís something in the hop profile that Iím not huge fan of. But certainly drinkable and even enjoyable APA.

deyholla (7636) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy light orangish peach with a white head that lasts throughout the beer and laces. Aroma has a good amount of bitter resin pine with a good amount of mustiness and some underlying earthy grains. Flavor has a combination of grapefruit and onion upfront with a resinous finish that is backed by musty grains.

AmEricanbrew (6181) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Bottles. Hazy amber color with lasting white sheen. Fruity, yeasty, pale malt, floral aromas. Smooth medium body. Nice floral, earthy bitter hop flavors with pale maltage, and a light fruit sweetness--lightly bitter finish----tasty pale.

Soonerchamps sent me this as part of a Local Beer Swap. Thanks Matt! Pours a murky amber with some thin, creamy, slightly off white head. Nose is solid, malt, orange, mild lemon peel, hints of herbs, cracker, some dried apple. Flavor follows along, well balanced between crackery/gristy malt, orange and mild pine, some dried apple, a little mild caramel. Balanced finish. Reminded me so much of DC Brau The Public. Just a solid, local, APA.

Sampled at an esbls. Very hazy dingy golden. A finky aroma with fruit. Citrus but mild. This is a pale ale. A nice beer. Fruot and some funk.

Bottle thanks to Graeme. Pours a cloudy gold orange with small off white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong wheat and bready malt. Medium mouth with strong wheat, bitter finish. Decent.

Crisp golden coloured body with a hint of a copper tint and a nice, two centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of bright citrus and piney hops with a PNW flavour and a noticeable malt flavour coupled with some tropical fruits. Medium-bodied; Crisp bright flavours of the fruits and hops that lace well with the malt and even shows a touch of sugar at the end. Aftertaste shows a very well-balanced beer with noticeable but not overwhelming hops and a smooth malt feel. Overall, a nice APA that shows well, but isnít amazing nor should go out of the way to sample! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Spirits N More in Norman, Oklahoma a few minutes before drinking it while at a tailgate party in Norman, Oklahoma on 13-September-2014 for US$1,99.

Bottle - thanks RobertDale! Pours cloudy amber orange with a small off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is citrus, yeast, grass, pine, dust. Flavor is the same, citrus, floral, fruity, yeast, grass. Medium body, high carbonation. Interesting APA with a touch of saison-ness going on in it.
