Growler fill at The Black Sheep Alehouse.

A: out of the tap it was a nice high white head of foam. Too much actually the bartender had to scoop out the foam which was non-existent when I poured it at home, I think because of the way it was filled. Oh well.... anyway.

S: really nice very citrusy, floral, with light pine smell.

T: stong orange taste up front with sweetness to it, honey maybe?

M: not too sticky, citrus, no bitterness.

O: another solid brew from Barrier. Haven't tried anything like this. Very strong orange taste which I enjoyed. I imagine this is what Gumballhead tastes like because its the same exact style of beer. But this has a higher ABV which is very subtle and make this dangerous because u don't even notice it.

On draft at Bobbique, Patchogue, NY.

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

The smell featured a juicy citrus hop and thin malt.

The taste consisted of a resinous citrus hop and subtle wheat malt.

The mouthfeel was thin considering the ABV.

Overall a tasty light drinking hop forward wheat ale.

Technically this was labeled as a double wheat IPA

Had this along with 10 other beers for the tasting.

This was not my favorite but in the top 3...

Poured a slightly hazy/clear copper golden color... nice carbonation.... niiiice thick soapy head that stuck around and left nice tight, sticky lacing. Smell of honey, sweet with a nice citrus hops mixed in there... initial sip is honey or some kind of sweet honey/creamy flavoring with a mild citrus/pine hop but mellow out midway thru to only come back in the aftertaste. Nice malt wheat taste in there... really went well with the citrus/pine/sweet taste of the base.

Medium to light bodied... not overly carbonated just the right amount...
A very tasty brew and definitely one of there better offerings. A nice honey sweet take on an ipa mixed with a wheat presence.

Served on-tap at The Blind TIger in New York, NY

A: Pours a lightly hazy medium golden apricot in color with minimal amounts of visible carbonation and hints of amber + orange highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall off-white head that reduces to a thin film covering the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of citrus/orange and citrus/grapefruit hops over a light aroma of wheat.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of wheat underneath a moderate flavor of citrus/orange hops. There are lighter flavors of citrus/grapefruit hops towards the finish. Light to moderate amounts of bitterness which fades pretty quickly.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: This is a very interesting beer as it seems to be a hybrid of a DIPA and an American Pale Wheat Ale which gives it the lighter easier drinking body of the wheat beer with all of the hop flavors and aromas of a DIPA. Definitely a success.

4.15/5  rDev -0.2%

On-tap at Blind Tiger Ale House, New York, NY

A: The beer is slightly hazy light amber orange in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that died down and left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose - oranges seem to stand out in particular along with some hints of grapefruit.
T: The taste follows the smell except that the citrusy flavors are a little stronger and are accompanied by a light to moderate amount of bitterness. Notes of wheat are also perceptible.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied and slightly smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has the hop aromas and flavors of an IPA but seems a little easier to drink with its lighter body.

4.06/5  rDev -2.4%

kicked the keg at a local bottle shop earlier today so only got a fraction of a growler (full glass though)...enjoyed from a blue point snifter.

a - brew poured a cloudy orange with a bubbly head that hung out a bit.

s - nice hopping over a pale wheat ale. a bit floral. not your typical wheat. reminiscent of alpha king, but maybe a bit less wheaty and more pale ale.

t - at first seemed rather wheaty with some soft hopping that finishes with a big bitter tail. as i drank it, it came across more like a pale ale with some wheaty notes...actually more of an ipa with some wheat notes.

m - soft to low carbonation, a bit watery. but it seems to fit the beer quite well. the feel seems to be more along the lines of a hopped up wheat.

o - overall, not bad...but i expected a bit more on this one. hoppy pale crossed with a wheat beer. the feel left a bit to be desired and i found myself wishing that this was just an IPA and not a hopped up pale wheat at first...but about halfway through my glass i fell in love a bit and started to really dig the beer. like a solid unfiltered single ipa with some wheaty elements.
