Poured into a tulip glass via draft at Rattle N Hum East (NYC)

color is slightly hazy yellow, light white foam
smell is Grapefruit, grass
Taste follows the nose, but is slightly muted, not as much POP as I was hoping for
medium carbination

not on par with some of Barrier's Other Collab's with local brewers ..easy to drink thou

Was not blown away by this brew, it was indeed pretty good. hazy pale yellow, fruity taste with some bitterness. Not the best I’ve tried from barrier but it is solid

A solid collaboration with to great Long Island brewers. Solid effort. I’ll lucky enough to visit Barrier regularly.

L: Hazy, more head than usual
S: Fruit/citrus
T: Subtle upfront, some dank notes, soft melon notes, good bitterness with citrus plithyness. Some interesting peach notes
F: I think this is what I like most about this beer. Almost double IPA chewiness, with more carbonation which I surprisingly enjoyed.
O: these are two breweries that the moment you open a can, the passion of brewing comes through.

My curiosity will lead me to another visit to Sand City.

Solid if unexceptional brew from Barrier, in collaboration with Sand City. Features Citra, Vic Secret, and Rudi hops; double dry hopped... Medium-pale gold hazy body, coupla fingers of fat head... Mildly sweet, mildly bitter, soft and smooth... Presents subtle impressions of pale fruits and fresh grain, some herbal and floral elements... Again, good, but not the best from either brewer... 5/8/18 canning...
