3.55/5  rDev -12.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

On draft at the brewery.

Poured a light brassy hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a grainy corn aroma and a smattering of grassy hops.

The taste was likewise adjunctesque with a lively grassiness and slight sweetness.

The mouthfeel was toward teh fuller side of the style with a nice fullness.

Overall a rather uneventful experience.

Serving type: on-tap

4.48/5  rDev +10.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance was bright amber with a thick head that stayed with it until the end. Citrusy/ orange like smell. Clean bitterness and the taste matches the nose ; this one is pure Amarillo hops with a complimentary malt presence. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied and smooth. This is a very drinkable beer.

It's a better "Chasin' Freshies". Barrier's best beer yet.

Serving type: on-tap
