3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
16 oz pour Press 195 - local, fresh beer that looks like an amber but has all the qualities of a IPA. Dry, earthy hops are rounded out by a semi- sweet malt backbone. But the predominant feature of this beer is the hop profile. Nice local brew from long island. The hops linger on your tongue to the point that you could almost chew them. Very nice.

Draught. Murky reddish brown with very small frothy white head, orange peel aroma, medium carbonation, lightly bitter orange peel taste with rye/caramel, medium thick body, longish bitter finish. Interesting brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: Draft at Croxley’s Ale House, /14
Aroma: The aroma is clean and malty, caramel and bread mostly, with some citrus notes
Appearance: This one pours a copper-amber color with a beige head and decent lace
Flavor: The flavor is clean and malty, not overly sweet, with a mild, dull hop presence
Palate: The body is medium, it has a smooth, clean feel, a soft carbonation, and a light dry finish
I thought this was an okay, but a little dull beer. It is plenty drinkable with a nice feel, it just didn’t do enough for me flavor-wise.

Tap. Dark copper color with beige head. Lovely, fresh perfume of green bud, pine train, caramel and light grapefruit. Goddamn, this beer smells nice. Taste is a mild let down, but still enjoyable. Medium body, average carbonation. Great hop undergirding. Tootsie Roll melted in for sweetness. Flavors struggle against each other, need to be reconciled.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Miles, Brooklyn tap ($6): Pours red with an off-white head. Aroma is caramel malts, some lightly fruity hops. Taste is just a tad sweet. Nice underlying hoppiness. Ultimately, I was expecting a tad more. But this was still a nice brew from Barrier.

Aroma is the best part of this beer. However, that's not to take away from the other redeeming qualities. It's a good overall IPA.
Pours a dark amber/red. Earthy, full bodied.

A reddish copper amber ale with a thin lacing off white head. In aroma, sweet caramel malt with nutty notes, and grassy resinous hops, nice. In mouth, a smooth nutty malt with light roasted notes and resinous hops, decent. On tap at Rattle N Hum.
