Technically this was labeled as a double wheat IPA

Had this along with 10 other beers for the tasting.

This was not my favorite but in the top 3...

Poured a slightly hazy/clear copper golden color... nice carbonation.... niiiice thick soapy head that stuck around and left nice tight, sticky lacing. Smell of honey, sweet with a nice citrus hops mixed in there... initial sip is honey or some kind of sweet honey/creamy flavoring with a mild citrus/pine hop but mellow out midway thru to only come back in the aftertaste. Nice malt wheat taste in there... really went well with the citrus/pine/sweet taste of the base.

Medium to light bodied... not overly carbonated just the right amount...
A very tasty brew and definitely one of there better offerings. A nice honey sweet take on an ipa mixed with a wheat presence.

On draft at Bobbique, Patchogue, NY.

Poured a light copper hue with a one finger foamy white. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a juicy citrus hop and thin malt.

The taste consisted of a resinous citrus hop and subtle wheat malt.

The mouthfeel was thin considering the ABV.

Overall a tasty light drinking hop forward wheat ale.

Growler fill at The Black Sheep Alehouse.

A: out of the tap it was a nice high white head of foam. Too much actually the bartender had to scoop out the foam which was non-existent when I poured it at home, I think because of the way it was filled. Oh well.... anyway.

S: really nice very citrusy, floral, with light pine smell.

T: stong orange taste up front with sweetness to it, honey maybe?

M: not too sticky, citrus, no bitterness.

O: another solid brew from Barrier. Haven't tried anything like this. Very strong orange taste which I enjoyed. I imagine this is what Gumballhead tastes like because its the same exact style of beer. But this has a higher ABV which is very subtle and make this dangerous because u don't even notice it.
