A Note on This Beer
To coax out the most potent flavors possible in today’s Deadly Combination IPA, the brew wizards at Barrier feature Citra and Chinook Hops in three glorious renditions:
Pellets! - Citra hop pellets bring on full bursts of orange and grapefruit, while Chinook adds distinctive layers of drippy pine resin.
Cryo! - In the form of cryo powder harvested from whole hop flowers, Mosaic and Strata shine through with bright citrus flavors and coniferous aromas.
Incognito! - This 100% hop-derived liquid delivers all of the hops’ alpha acids and oil compounds (the stuff that makes Citra and Chinook so darn tasty in the first place) without any of the leafy vegetation getting in the way.
And, as if they don’t already go leaps beyond what most IPA recipes call for, Barrier merges the trifecta of hop forms with their own yeast strain for subtle notes of citrus rind and surprising floral-spice complexity!
In case it’s not clear, this is a high-powered hopbomb best enjoyed by those looking for a truly unmitigated expression of Citra and Chinook. This is one Deadly Combination that won’t be showing up on your local grocery store shelves!

I love the deadly combination series. This one does not disappoint. Juicy goodness
Very easy to drink, nice thick flavor.
Really smooth to drink. Delicious.
Citrusy with a piney finish. Nice and hazy
Too citrusy. I miss non-hazy IPAs.
What an amazing combination! Deadly is right...deadly good, that is! Aromatic citrus juice bomb perfectly balanced. Hoppy without overpowering piney resin notes. I love it!
Caught a bad one. Looking out for Barrier again
Interested in seeing Chinook in an IPA as not often used. Needs further exploration.
Citrus taste but smooth
Orange , piny, thick and smooth while the 7.4% being super crushable. It’s a good one
Damn fine IPA.
Probably my favorite from this brewery so far.
Beautifully mild dank aroma. Taste is full of tropical fruit and orange pith. Aftertaste has slight piney resins. Wonderfully crafted IPA!
Average in general
So good, very easy to drink. Terrific.
Smooth, crushable, and 7.4 ABV definitely a deadly combination- would gladly drink again
Soft on the pallet, super fruity. Very drinkable!
Great citrus aromatics with lots of classic orange/grapefruit citrus notes upfront. The chinook adds a really nice piney, almost peppery kick at the end. Excellent IPA.
The only BARRIER to this DEADLY COMBINATION of CITRA + CHINOOK, was the flip top can lid: pure liquid awesomeness! #MorePlease
