From a bottle into a Barrier snifter.

This is the first bottle released by Barrier. Was released at brewery on 1/16/2013, hand bottled, labeled and waxed. Only 400 bottles produced.

A: Poured a nice light brown color with hints of orange in the light, 1.5 finger head with great lacing, foam that stuck around for duration of the drink.

S: Strong piney hops with some floral hints at the end.

T: Piney hops again. Good malt backbone that compliments it well. As the hops fade, the finish is delicious burnt sugar.

M: Medium mouth-feel with great carbonation.

O: This is an enjoyable beer, with a nice flavor profile and a great addition to the Barrier lineup. Looking forward to see what they do next and can't wait to see them bottle more stuff.

Thanks to bcolton for the opportunity to try this one. Pours a translucent golden-orange with a loose, off-white head that dissipates into clusters of bubbles around the edges. Nose expresses sweet citrus and a hint of rind. Taste consistent with nose wth the addition of a medicinal character at the finish and a suggestion of artificial sweetener. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with a carbonation that falls just short of lively. Overall, a solid DIPA, but nothing really stands out - not overly hoppy or malty.
