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!
