This beer is very good. Has to be one of the most underrated, under the radar beers out there. Oustanding smell, sweet taste. If Other Half, Trillium, Hill Farmstead or other big boys made this beer, people would go nuts for this one.

On-tap at Alewife, Long Island City, NY

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has slight hues of amber with no visible carbonation. It poured with a thin off white head that died down leaving a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate to strong aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose along with hints of tropical fruits.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of citrusy hops along with some notes of tropical fruits. A moderate to high amount of bitterness is present.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: Selecting this IPA is "money"—it's easy to drink and packed with lots of aromas and flavors.

I've been drinking this beer since it's original rendition, about 2 years ago. Since then, the recipe has changed once or twice. It's about time I give this bad boy a review.

A: Beautiful dark yellow-strawish color with a nice lacing around the edges. Transparent as transparent can be.

S: Loads of delicious citrus, pine and grapefruit.

T: Here is where the beer excels and soars above its competition. Holy crap. Tons of citrus, pine, grapefruit. Good malt backbone. This is what holy water should taste like.

M: Medium bodied, long lasting but not overpowering bitterness that lingers on the tongue in a very pleasant way.

O: By far the best IPA being produced in New York to date. This baby can compete with it's west coast counterparts, and probably exceeds many of them. Barrier is a solid brewery, producing extraordinary IPA's like Money. This beer comes and goes so quick, but luckily I live within 10 mins of the brewery and always make sure to get a few growlers when it's back on the tap line. The brewery just expanded it's tap room as well, and made a new bar with ~10 beers on tap per day (rotating daily). Barrier is stepping it's game up and I don't doubt for a second will be one of the top breweries of 2014 if they get their distribution up and bottling in full effect.

In the end, ITS MONEY BABY.

look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Arrives with a clear goldenrod color capped by an inch of foam; a few strands of lacing are left behind

Smell: Really juicy aromatics with citrusy grapefruit, tropical fruit and floral tones

Taste: Opens with a juicy and bright grapefruit citrus flavor with developing tropical fruit and pine flavors; after the swallow, a hint of bready malt emerges but this is one juicy beer with considerable bitterness in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: This is a first rate juicy San Diego style IPA; really terrific
