Pours a cloudy light orange with a one inch white head that left blotchy lacing. Smells of citrus, pine and floral notes. Tastes of orange, orange peel, lemon, peach, mango, pine, floral elements, sweet malts and a hint of yeast. Medium bodied and carbonated, light bitterness, smooth mouth feel.

Canned 01/24/20, this pours cloudy gold orange color with a foamy 2 finger thick off white head that was packed with bubbles of all sizes, fading very slowly and leaving decent spotty lacing.

Smells of grapefruit, orange peel, lemon zest, pine needles, floral hops, grains, biscuit and light peppery spices. The more it warmed up the more flowery the aroma got.

If you’re from Long Island you can taste some of the Sand City aspects as well as the Barrier components. Nice citrus flavors like orange peel, grapefruit, lemon zest, clementine, as well as dry floral notes, light peppery spices, tea leaf, pine cone, biscuit, toasted grains, a dash of chalky yeast and fruity flavors like Fruit Loops cereal. It’s pretty well balanced and hides the ABV perfectly. Good stuff.
