From tap, bought same day. Shared 32oz growler with a buddy last night. Poured into HF glass. Pale color, clear, little head, moderate lacing. Not much in the nose compared to most DIPAs. Huge alcohol presence in the first half of glass, the 9.0 abv is in your face. Oddly, the alcohol warmth subsided as the beer warmed. The second half of the glass was much better than the first and I enjoyed the last few sips quite a bit. I was looking forward to trying this one for a while since it's local, not on tap very often at Barrier, and so highly rated, but I have to say I was underwhelmed overall. Not bad by any stretch, but I've had better by Barrier.

A - Slightly hazed golden body, white head has decent retention and lacing.

S - Huge burst of tropical citrus, pineapple, mango, grapefruit.

T - Follows smell, but then turns and finishes slightly astringent and boozy. Big caramel sweetness comes in as it warms.

M - Medium to full body, good medium carbonation level. Not overly bitter considering style.

O - Wonderful nose on this one, but didn't completely translate to the taste.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Arrives with a small foamy head perched atop the hazy amber liquid; several streaks of lace are left behind

Smell: Sugary shortbread malt underpins pineapple and citrus tones

Taste: Shortbread malt, up front, but the bitterness builds through the middle, with pineapple and citrus; the malt lingers into the finish despite the aggressive bitterness; the 9% is very apparent in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation; some warmth lingers in the gullet

Overall: A nice double IPA but a bit too boozy and sweet on the finish for my palate

From 11/29/13 notes. On tap at One Mile House in NYC. 16 oz. pour in a pint glass.

a - Pours a golden amber color with two inches of fluffy off white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of citrus hops, grapefruit, tropical fruits, pineapples, fruity malts, pine hops, and floral hops. Very nice, with ltos of citrus hops.

t - Tastes of citrus hops, tropical fruits, mangos, pineapples, grapefruit juice, floral hops, fruity malts, dank pine hops, bread, and earthy notes. Taste is super fresh and hoppy, with a ton of nice citrus and tropical fruits. Awesome taste, even better than the nose.

m - Medium body and low to moderate carbonation, with no real bitterness to it. Pretty nice.

o - Overall I thought this was a great beer; up there with Money as one of their best, and reminds me of it quite a bit. Tons of fresh citrus hops and tropical fruits and no bitterness. HIghly recommend, would like to have it again.
