On the citrus crisp bitterside just slightly sweet but enough to downrate a bit served on tap a bit flat I'm afraid it may have been sitting in the keg too long worth a try.

Pours a thick and above average foamy head that dies reluctantly leaving a frothy lacing.

Fragrance features a combination of tropical and citrus fruit with a subtle hint of lemon, notes of mango and pineapple come through as well.

Citrusy hoppy flavor comprises of mango, zesty grapefruit pith with a tropical fruite gummy aftertaste and a moderate amount of bitterness that balances out the initial juciness. Has a bit of a malt backbone to it.

Sensation on the palate is one of a medium bodied, juice bomb with a zesty sting.

Has the fragrance and flavor of an east-coast juice bomb with finish of a bitter west-coast IPA. Quite unique

A delightful, citrus-forward juicebomb. New England style all the way. Some complexity and a long, deep fruity aftertaste. Very impressive brew, and the healthy 7.3% abv is well-disguised.

Sometimes you can tell that a beer’s flavor is sub-par because it has sacrificed taste in favor of alcohol content, but sometimes a high alcohol content beer is just bad. I believe this falls in the later category.
The texture is grainy and not a lot about this beer is enticing; a C for effort, though

4pak from Ma and Pa’s. Very nice IPA . Full flavor and feel but still a very easy drinkable brew. Happy intro to Barrier Brewing.

Pours a murky straw color, visible carbonation, and a dense and large foamy head. Excellent retention with sticky frothy lacing.
The nose features a combination of tropical and citrus fruit. Grapefruit, orange, a touch of lemon zest, mango, papaya and guava and pineapple.
Flavors are bursting with citrusy hops and tropical fruit; grapefruit pith, dry pineapple, mango, and orange peel. The middle palate has a developing moderate bitterness that is peppery and piny as it interplay’s with the full bready and caramel malt backbone. The finish has a zesty citrusy sting and a resiny linger.
Medium bodied, gently carbonated, frothy and juicy.
Interesting and tasty IPA. The appearance and juicy/frothy flavor and texture suggest NEIPA. However, the resiny bitterness hints at West Coast. A nice hybrid. Very well done.

This beer pours a super hazy golden color with a dense, two finger, foamy white head. Retention is above average and there are sticky rings and chunks of lacing left on the glass.

Smell is bright tropical fruits, most notably mango, pineapple, lemon and tangerine, along with a hint of pale malts and a dank, weedy aroma.

Taste is the same. It starts of fruity, there is a little malt presence mid sip, and a moderately bitter finish.

Feel is light side of medium, soft, smooth and slightly sticky. The carbonation is low.

Overall this is a very good beer. The smell could pop a little more and I wish the body was a bit more creamy, but this is a more than solid NEIPA that you don't need to wait in line for.
