Prepare to Pucker
Named after a Bronx Summertime destination for sunshine and seafood, City Island Sour IPA joined our year-round lineup in August of 2019. Its combination of hops and Sourvisiae yeast create a unique peachy flavor with zippy hints of lemon and lime.
A puckery, tongue-tingly and tart brew, City Island is floral on the nose but makes us think of sour peach rings when we take a sip.
After a few years on our roster, we felt like City Island’s uniform needed a little update so we called in our friend and master graffiti artist, Enoe.
“I feel like sour beers are an acquired taste and I felt the art should be just as unique,” he said.
Using an older painting as a reference, Enoe converted his design to digital for this can piece, using the liquid as his inspiration to visualize the flavors as colors.
“The shapes and colors in the art represent a person relaxing with sunglasses and staring at a radiant star in the sky,” he said. “Let’s just say we want whoever is drinking this to believe they’re drinking liquid gold.”
