From 07/30/13 notes. Had this on tap at Mug's Alehouse in Brooklyn. Served in a pint glass, this is probably my favorite beer from Barrier so far.

a - Pours a hazy bright orange color with one inch of white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of citrus hops, fruity malts, tropical fruits, grapefruit, floral hops, and earthy notes. Lots of citrus and oranges, nice hoppy nose.

t - Tastes of citrus hops, fruity malts, pale malts, floral hops, grapefruit, oranges, and lemon. Again, lots of citrus and quite nice. No bitterness.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. No bitterness at all and easy to drink body. Doesn't feel 8% ABV.

o - Overall a really nice hoppy pale ale, and this is definitely the best beer I've had so far from Barrier. Lots of citrus hops to it all throughout drinking it, and no bitterness at all. Would like to have this one again and would recommend it.

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.

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.

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.

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.
