COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Boat Beer is designed to be complex enough to merit drinking a few without being crippled by alcohol. Kolsch yeast and German malts are combined to be crisp and refreshing, while a generous amount of American hops have been added to keep it remarkable. Expect it to dance out of the glass with a whack of grapefruit and open into a crisp, stony tangle of white and yellow fruit with pine and moss notes. An IPA for everyday drinking, drink boat beer when you are thirsty from softball, fishing, or explaining why your team is best.

Best Session IPA I’ve ever had. Solid hop flavor, but still light enough to make 12 a good idea

Can split in the hotel lobby, RBWG ’15, night 2 - 20/02/15 thanks to whomever shared this number. Hazed orange with a moderate off white covering. Nose is pissy citrics, light skunk hop, pine, orange pith, melon. Taste comprises tangerine, straw, skunky hops, bitter citric peel. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Solid SIPA.

umich03jm (2556) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Can thanks to phillycraft. Hazy pale yellow pour with a small foamy head that fades to a messy ring. Aroma is perfumy pine, grapefruit, flowers, and light lemon. Tastes mildly bitter. Mostly pine with light grapefruit, lemon peel, and flowers. Very light bodied and goes down really easy. Nice session ale.

skmikeg (1223) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Pour golden yellow with a one finger white head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, tropical fruits, freshly cut grass, and some biscuit malts. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium-light body with a slightly creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi bitter, medium finish. Overall, a tasty, very drinkable session IPA that I would love to drink on a hot summer day.

mathieuc (1972) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2015
Pours a lightly hazy golden with a small white head that leaves fair lacing. Nice and fruity nose, bursting with tropical fruits. Taste is bitter to a moderately high level and fruity as well. Body is light, a bit thin but I can forgive since it is meant to be sessionnable. Nice one for sure, I’d pick it up again and again if I could! Fun and clean, like all session IPAs should be.

callmemickey (3498) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2015
Lightly hazy golden-orange body, medium sized white head and soapy lacing. Bright citrus, florals, grass, and light crackery malts. Light bodied with moderate to lively carbonation, refreshing, but perhaps a bit too thin. Good beer for a boat.

czar (5377) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 10, 2015
sample @ EBF 2015. cloudy very pale yellow pour with a small disappearing white cap, minimal lacing. tropical citrus, honeydew melons, soft pine needles, grass, pale lean crackery and spicy maltiness, pepper. average carbonation - slightly prickly, light body - slightly watery; balanced and lightly astringent grassy-spicy-citrusy finish. sessionnable for sure. nothing spectacular though.

Prufrockstar (1388) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 31, 2015
Can thanks to Greg. Gold/pale pour. Small head. Citrus, grass, wheat, hay, all things grown in the ground that are harvested when it’s hot. Or something. Clean, moderately bitter. Reminiscent of fremont session pale. Real nice.

tom10101 (3682) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 30, 2015
Sample @ EBF.

Appearance: Slightly hazy pale yellow with a small white head and little lacing.

Aroma: Quite hoppy, resinous, nice fruity touch and dank hops / onions.

Taste: Decent malt backbone for such a low abv beer. Resinous presence, light citrus and dank/onions notes. Very light bitterness.

Palate: Light body. Almost watery, but it still doesn’t feel too thin. Good carbonation, a lot of small bubbles. Dry finish.

Overall: Super easy to drink. Enjoyable. Feels very light. I would like to have access to this in my neck of the wood. Good Session IPA.

asheft (2684) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 28, 2015
[on tap at Proof, EWR airport] Fresh citrus and pine hops along with some sulfurous, "young beer" aromatics. Hazy yellow under a lasting, pristine flannel blanket. Extremely well balanced flavour of citrus peel, lemon and grapefruit and lime, delicate pine, and dry, base malt with a moderate bitterness and clean fermentation. Light body, prickly carbonic bite. Very quaffable--the beer version of lemonade in the summer.
