L: unexceptional bronzed yellow. Crystal clear. Large head that dissipates quickly.

S: yeast and tropical fruits and citrus.

T: generic citrus fruits. Maybe something approximating a refreshing herb. Not mint itself, but the spirit of mint.

F: syrupy.

O: large step down from the base beer. Undifferentiated IPA that skews towards the generic. And with its ABV present, and high malt sweetness, makes it a bit of a labor to drink.

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..

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

From tap, bought same day. Shared 32oz growler with a buddy last night. Poured into HF glass. Pale color, clear, little head, moderate lacing. Not much in the nose compared to most DIPAs. Huge alcohol presence in the first half of glass, the 9.0 abv is in your face. Oddly, the alcohol warmth subsided as the beer warmed. The second half of the glass was much better than the first and I enjoyed the last few sips quite a bit. I was looking forward to trying this one for a while since it's local, not on tap very often at Barrier, and so highly rated, but I have to say I was underwhelmed overall. Not bad by any stretch, but I've had better by Barrier.

Poured from a 16.9oz bottle into a speiglau IPA glass.

Look is a slightly hazy Amber with yellowish gold highlights and a 1inch head with small bubbles.

Lots of tropical notes tangerine orange grapefruit. A dry citrus hop so you can tell there was dry hopping. Really smells like money IPA.

Taste is a hopped up money IPA with lemon and pine. So delicious.
