Pours a dull, hazy orange with a tight, 1/8th inch white head embedded with ringlets and bubbles. Nose is all citrus pith. Taste follows nose; however, I get more guava than kiwi. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with an assertive carbonation. Overall, decent, but too much pith.

big thanks to my man robbie for the hookup. heard good things about these collabs.

definitely a juice bomb from 2 of the better NY breweries. the sum of the parts is as good if not better than what each does on their own but this definitely carries more of a barrier vibe than grimm. very nice beverage. little boozy but kiwi gives a nice fruity sharpness.

Tall can, 7-24-17..yeah its fresh

Pours heavily clouded/turbid...ample froth and lace left on the glass

Loaded with ripe tropicals, and ripe fruityness abounds

Milkshake like bodywise...suprisingly rich and filling...a bit over the top for my likings actually

More NE style IPA from Barrier and I like it

Poured from a 16oz can into a speiglau IPA glass.

Look is extremely hazy yellow/ orange with a frothy white head.

Aroma is orange hops with a slight kiwi note at the end.

Taste is more of tropical fruits with a lighter almost vanilla kiwi note at the end.
