Very hoppy, fruity taste, not overwhelming. Must be drunk ice cold for best satisfaction. Does not hit you too hard right away, but lingers.

L: Poured from a tallboy can to a tulip glass. Had a bright amber color and a cloudy texture. There was an inch of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Above average lacing.

S: A very enticing aroma of dank hops, malt, citrus, and some pine as well.

T: Tasted of a hint of sweet malt, a fair shot of pine resin (mostly in the finish), lots of dank hops, an earthy, lots of citrus notes (orange, a little lemon), and tropical fruit (mangoes). This is one of the more focused DIPA flavors I've tasted recently. There's a good balance between the dank, earthy hops and the fruity elements. Quite tasty.

F: A well-carbonated beer with a lively finish. Medium-bodied.

O: An exceedingly well-made DIPA with a lot of character. Definitely worth a look.

This was a weird one. But I like weird. I need another one to tell me what it is.

Canned 1/20/17 (COME TO DADDY). Enjoyed 2/22/17. Purchased from Pequa Beverage.

Look: Darkest orange i've seen in a while. Almost brown. Not mixed too well, lots of particles that linger. Head does not stick around. (6/10)
Smell: Coffee, Dirt, Orange, Tropical, Hops. (7/10)
Taste: Vaseline, Hops, Coffee, Earth, tastes like a stout. (7/10)
Feel: Vaseline is tough, Resin, oily, Taste lingers, and doesn't go away. (7/10)
Overall: This was a nice change of pace, but definitely nothing like the NE IPA's we like. Very interesting beer, not bad by any means, just different. You should try this. (7/10)

Can poured into a fluted snifter.

Burnt orange with soft haze. Thick foamy head settles fast into floating islands and thick collar.

First thing I get in the aroma is earthy grass and herbal followed by some tropical fruits and hint of residual sweet malts.

Flavor is herbal, full hop onslaught with tropical fruits (e.g. mango) and grassy, resinous flavors. Light alcohol and a hint of caramel sweetness.

Moderate carbonation and a tad higher than medium bodied.

Full flavored but approachable. Nice mix of hoppy flavors that work well in combination.

Can from 1/20/2017 poured into an oversized goblet. Pours a dark and cloudy orange color with a white lacing on the top of the beer. Malty flavor with some fruit in the background. Nectarine maybe. A little more boozy than I was expecting, but very drinkable at 9.8%abv. Would like to try on draft.

tall siver can...1/20/17...loving how Barrier seemingly continues to up there game...the last few beer I've tried have them have been quite tasty.

This is a super freshy and highly enjoable take on the NE IPA style, that seems to be all the rage in my circles.

Pours cloudy, dull tangerine, lasting off white cap, leaves a thicker collar and scattered blobs of lace.

Dank, tropical sniff...

Super tasty, super tropical, dank, complex and delicious, pineapple, grapefruit, mango...top quality...go get some..
