Growler from Bier Thirty... Super stoked they would fill it.. Poured into my little Teku.. Clear golden with a nice enough white head and lacing.

Clean light pale maltiness allows mango and melon to wash wave after wave.. Light tangerine essence shows with warmth.. Cannot believe this is +7%... Great hop presence but never gets even close to bitter and still shows a light residual maltiness..

Big interesting hoppiness with little malt sweetness.. incredibly drinkable.. Fantastic summer IPA, but will wreck you if you are not careful.

64oz growler filled earlier in the day @ The Growler Run

Pours a clear, golden yellow with a thin, foamy white head.

Big juicy, stone fruit notes in the nose and a blend of fruit and a light bready backbone in the taste.

Medium-light body, foamy carbonation.

A well done, easy drinking IPA.

On tap at ABV.

A clear light orange with a thin white head that leaves little lacing, this looks decent. The nose is excellent. Big, fruity citrus hops, melon, grape, this is pretty fucking refreshing. Some pine, no malt, this is excellent. Unlike some other Barley Brown's beers, this doesn't have that mild mineral character, making this almost San Diego like in execution. The palate opens with a perfect blend of citrus, fruit, and pine, a pungent bitterness, pine like and resiny, clean, mildly melon like with a touch of grape. Clean, crisp on the finish, bright, bitter, creamy and resiny, this is excellent. I think the time has come for me to round up all BB's IPAs and try em side by side.

On tap at Big Legrowlski’s, Portland.
Lager gold with white film. 3.75
Piss, herb, lemon. 4
Lager cracker, bunches of fresh herbs, hit of guava, and some citrus rind. 4
Crisp, light-medium, oily. 4

Some dank, some citrus - light and easy. Buuut… also lots of sharp edges, too - unapologetic IBUs and not so juicy. One for the hopheads. 4.25

Golden amber, mostly clear. Thin, bubbly, white head with streak lacing. Aroma is citrus, tropical fruit and some stone fruit. Very big hops flavor with similar characteristics of the aroma. Juicy and resinous, medium body, & overall an very good beer.
