First beer from Sand City!

This one pours a golden and very hazy orange, with a small foamy head and lots of lacing.

This smells earthy and almost funky, with some orange and papaya going on, and pine and grass on the nose as well.

This an interesting earthy sort of dirtiness to it- maybe that's the Chinook? There's heavy grassiness and pine, and a big juicy finish- kinda exotic, also with orange and grapefruit.

This is pretty crisp, with a lingering bitter finish, and a good level of carbonation.

This is a nice intro to these guys.

Pours a hazy yellow color with a one inch head that left spotty lacing all the way down the glass. Smells of tropical and citrus fruits, pine and a hint of sweet malt. Tastes of mango, pineapple, grapefruit, pine and a subtle malt presence. Minimal bitterness on the finish. Light to medium bodied, well carbonated, smooth and incredibly easy to drink. Another winner from Sand City.

Double dry-hopped with Citra, Simcoe, Chinook, and Mosaic... No canning date... Medium gold body, hazy, white head a couple of fingers high on a moderate pour into a pint; left some lace lines down the glass... Aromas of citrus and tropical fruits muddled with mild earthy dank tones... Muted citrus of grapefruit and mildly sweet fruit melded with herbal pine and a little muskiness... Bitterness is subtle, with just a faint sweetness alongside, soft and airy-feeling, medium-light weight... Super smooth drinking... Batch released 3/10/17...
