On gravity cask served in an English nonic. Clear dark amber with a thin eggshell head. Smells very citrusy, berry, and some twizzlers. The flavor is a generic fruit, caramel, spicy dough. Thick slippery with a nice resinous bitterness.

trapped (2308) - New York, TURKEY - MAY 23, 2016
Draught. Cloudy dark orange with very small frothy white head, floral hops aroma, high carbonation, lightly bitter orange peel taste, somewhat thick body, medium bitter orange peel finish. The rye taste is hidden under the orange peel dominance.

Mother Kelly’s. Keg. Lightly hazy amber beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry with good fine carbonation that nibbles. Fluffy pale malts bring a light creamy sweetness. Hops are spicy pine with a light citric peel. Mild orange and a trace of tropical fruits. More hop spice before a light finish. Orange, marmalade and hop spice linger on. Nice!

shoulderbroken (3831) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 11, 2016
Tap at Mother Kellys. Nice aroma, juicy, touch of rye weirdness, little bit sweet. Taste is good, rye is dominant, not so bitter, pine, light fruit, bit twiggy, but in a good way. Minerals. Nice.

ben4321 (5773) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Location: Draft at Horace & Sylvia’s, 10/20/14

Aroma: It has a nice, fresh, hoppy aroma of pine and citrus, with some pale malts
Appearance: It pours a reddish-orange color with a small sheet of off-white head and decent lace
Flavor: The flavor is much the same, clean and hoppy, solidly bitter, with a light sweetness
Palate: The body is medium, it has a clean mouthfeel, and a smooth, dry finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was a nice one for sure. Another good IPA from Barrier. Would definitely order this again, as it drinks pretty nicely.

nimbleprop (7551) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 11, 2014
32oz growler I picked up at the Barrier tap room. Pours a clear orange with some sudsy, lacing white head. Nose has a lot of citrus, grapefruit, meyer lemon, plenty of pine too, soapy, a bit of fresh grass and some dried grass, some honey, some mild grainy notes. Flavor follows right along, sweet, malty, just a little bit of caramel, some mild pepper, but this is really dominated by the hops, grapefruit rind, some sticky orange juice, pine, soap. Sticky finish.

Funky, hempy citrus aroma. The initial taste is thin (it followed a DIPA) but beguiling, with dank hops and that characteristic rye flavor. Citrus and Slavic bread/yeast harmonies flesh out that basic structure as the glass warms. Very enjoyable.

Golden amber body, medium sized off-white head, spotty lacing. Grapefruit, dankness, pine, and spicy rye. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, lively bitterness.

draft at The Jeffrey, NYC. Copper colored pour, great bitterness, touch of malty richness but all about the hops. Pine, grapferuit pith, rye. Solid
