Original reviewer set ABV as 4.6. It is actually 6.4%.

Easily had this beer over a dozen times, and it gets better every time. Poured from growler obtained at the brewery this afternoon.

A: Deep orange, straw-like appearance. Limited head and virtually zero retention besides a nice lacing around the edge. Good amount of visible carbonation coming from the depths of the glass.

S: Tropical hops galore. Citrus, pineapple, papaya, mango and slight pine at the end. Explosion of delicious hop aromas. Sugar like malt on the very end. Most likely caramel malts.

T: The first thing that comes to mind when I drink this beer is fruit loops. It is absolutely delicious. All the tropical hops on the nose were no tease..full of tropical flavors. Very nice complimentary malt backbone.

M: Medium bodied, well carbonated.

O: A classic from barrier. Such a delicious beer, and it seems to get better with every batch. Must try for hop heads. If you have access to this beer, don't sleep on it! At this rate, this growler won't last more than 2 hours.

If you like fruity pebbles, this is your beer. Good base but the hops aren't doing it for me.

Yet another beer by barrier that is listed.

The brewery classifies this as an ipa, with a lsow abv %

The beer pours with Light smooth head and looks pale yellow as a adjunt lager would

The smell is amazing, like potpourri.

Taste is very floral,

Mouthfeel smooth and light

Overall a different feel on an ipa and damn good

Poured into a mug from a growler.
