Canned 7/10/17 into a teku.

This is going to be a polarizing beer, but I love the combination of Amarillo and kiwi. I've had plenty of fruited IPAs but this is definitely unique.

Nailed the base malt and mouth feel on this one.

Pours a turbid medium orange with a half inch white head that dissipated in a couple of minutes and left rings of lacing all the way down the glass. Smells of tropical fruits with muted malt notes. Tastes of kiwi, pineapple, orange and a sweet malt flavor. Chewy mouth feel, moderate carbonation, finishes with mild bitterness. Very well done collaboration.

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.

Featuring Amarillo hops and kiwi... 7/24 canning... Opaque orange juice-looking beer in the glass with a fat white foam cap... Lots of tart and tangy fruit impressions, with that clean, unripe green character - although I guess kiwis are green when they're ripe, but you get the idea... Mild sweetness, pithy bitterness, soft carbonation and lingering finish... Superior stuff...

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.

This beer is absolutely delicious. I would put this beer up against any Treehouse, Monkish, or Hill Farmstead beer. Blows Otherhalf out of the water. Great hop to malt balance, barely taste the alcohol. Super fresh ingredients. Job well done!

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.
