22oz. to little Barrier snifter, awww...

Appearance - Clear, golden, and bubbly. Perfect 1 finger white head. Fantastic lacing throughout the drinking experience.

Smell - I've never had a beer brewed with zythos hops before, or at least I didn't know it. Wonderful. It smelled like pine, mangos, and strawberries were mixed together with honey, really good.

Taste - Akin to the nose with a wonderful, sweet, malty backbone. Sugary hops up front, with some fruit like flavors in the middle, and a solid bitterness to bring the whole beer in check.

Mouthfeel - Well carbonated and easy drinking. If I wasn't told that it was 10%, there is no way I ever would have guessed that high.

Overall - Hands down my favorite beer from Barrier and I have had every beer they've brewed. These guys are really starting to do some amazing things, glad to see they are up and running, and knocking it out of the park with this brew.
