A: Poured from the can into a Piraat tulip/snifter-type glass. Body is hazy golden-orange with a small whitish head on top.

S: Modest tropical fruit, floral, perfumey hops, and a touch of citrus.

T: Pretty much follows the nose, with a bigger malt foundation than expected. It's followed by tropical fruity hops - think mango - and a touch of oranges and then more citrus - of the bitter type (think lemon, grapefruit peel) at the finish.

M: A little on the thick and slick side for a "straight" IPA; feels more like DIPA in many ways.

O: Very good. Grows on me as I drink it, which I think is a good thing.

Pleased to be the sixth review of the 6 - 51631. A nice play on area codes (Zip codes having been conquered by Carton).
A) Beautiful beer. Orange amber, rich white head, lots of sea foamy lace - as fitting for Barrier.
S) Bright blaring citrus orchard and flower shop, with one odd component that’s a bit powdered tang or medicine cabinet.
T) Lots of successive citrus fruit flavors, with that chalky, dusty feeling of a Smartie. leans into pleasant clean bitter finish. Juicy and chalky at once.
F) Interesting. Clean bright finish, good food beer, almost too much except with salty oysters and clams. Juicy, tangy.
o) Despite being light and playful this is serious beer. Try 24.

Pours a nice orange color. Not crazy thick, but thick enough it's not opaque. Has a nice fruity smell and the taste matches. Mango is the prominent taste and in a nice way. There is a little thickness to the beer, but the aftertaste does not linger. Overall a very nice beer.

Tall can...1/29/18 stamped on the bottom

Hazed NEIPA pour, light and fine fields of lacing left behind.

Tropical fruits and herbal hops on the sniff.

Pineapple, mango, oranges on the palate up front, drying hops in the finish, bright and flavorful....delicious ... go get some
