Pours a cloudy light orange with a quarter inch white head that dissipated to a thin cap rather quickly and left decent, blotchy lacing. Smells of citrus, pine and a bit of tropical fruit. Tastes of grapefruit, pine, pineapple, pepper, grapefruit rind and some sweet malts. Medium to heavy bodied, well carbonated, dry finish that leaves an almost chalky feel, moderate bitterness.

Looks tan and murky, very enticing.
Smells subdued--faint barrier yeast and light overripe fruit.
Taste is primarily soft spruce, the yellow spring tips, not the pungent green fall ones. Really delicate and delicious. Very little fruitiness.
Feels great, with perfect carbonation, which rolls long around the mouth. Just wish the flavor lasted as long too. A little light on the finish.
Overall a great IPA, different from the tropical fruity modern beauties like Tanto that Barrier makes, but with that same awesome yeast and skill.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: pours a hazy golden yellow color with a 1" head that falls to a thick surface covering.

Smell: mild citrus and pine tones are picked up by the nose.

Taste: caramel, pine, grapefruit, lemon zest, mango, and an earthy bitterness.

Mouthfeel: medium in body. Crisp throughout. Mild dryness arrives late.

Overall: a refreshing and easy to drink IPA.

Tasting notes from 05/27/17
Had on-tap at Barrier Brewing in Oceanside, CA

Appearance - Served up in a tall 10oz glass, hazy and straw yellow in color, with a mostly barren surface except a razor thin ring of suds around the edge of the glass. Fair lacing, with small spotting found here and there.

Smell - Aroma is equal parts dank and fruity; earth and pine met by citrus and a hint of pineapple.

Taste - Follows the nose. Strong, aggressive notes of citrus, pine upfront, then turns yeasty and fruity in the finish with touches of mango and pineapple. Black pepper spice. Aftertaste lingers with pith bitterness and a touch of passionfruit.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with a fair amount of carbonation. Goes down well enough, but the Finish is dry and slightly chalky.

Overall - It packs a flavor punch, that's for sure. I cant believe Im saying this, but a bit of mellow, juicier character would do this beer some good. Or maybe not. Its rather unique as is, even if it doesn't quite line up with my preference.

Thick mouth feel tropical and juicy hitting all at once. moderate carbonation throughout and some sweet malt and grassy on the end. Only slightly bitter smooth finish, superb

On tap. Really murky yellow, white head. Aroma is milky and yeasty with lots of juicy hops. Taste follows, hop milkshake, quite bitter on the finish. Pink grapefruit aftertaste. Medium plus body, medium carbonation.

From a growler. Pours hazy, gold in color, with 1/3 inch head. Taste is pineapple, grapefruit, and lemon rind with slight cracker. Slightly bitter, medium bodied with moderate carbonation. First experience with Barrier and I gotta say I like it. An IPA that stands up to my New England favorites. I will get this one again.
