A Note on This Beer
Craft fans in New York City know Barrier is the place to go if you’ve got a hankerin’ for hops. They’re one of Forbes’ Best Craft Breweries in New York because they set a high bar with their IPAs.
Perhaps no Barrier beer sets that bar as high as their Deadly Combination IPA!
To coax out the most potent flavors possible in today’s brand-new version, the brewers feature Ekuanot and Citra Hops in three marvelous forms:
- Pellets! - Citra Hop pellets bring on full blasts of juicy mandarin and pink grapefruit, while Ekuanot adds huge layers of papaya and candied mango.
- Cryo! - In the form of Cryo powder harvested from whole hop flowers, Citra and Ekuanot shine their citrusy and tropical candy flavors with even more intensity.
- Incognito! - This 100% hop-derived liquid delivers all of the hops’ alpha acids and oil compounds (the stuff that makes Citra and Ekuanot so dang delicious) without any leafy vegetation getting in the way.
As if they don’t already go leaps beyond what most IPA recipes call for, Barrier merges the trifecta of hop renditions with their own yeast strain for subtle notes of citrus rind and floral-spice complexity!
In case it’s not clear, this high-powered hopbomb is best enjoyed by those looking for an above-standard taste of Citra and Ekuanot.
