4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tallboy from Ramy poured into a Hovels tall thin mug. Small bubbly head fades rather quickly. Body is very hazy pale straw. Aroma is very dry hoppiness with accents of lemon skin, bitter dry greens, and mostly dry grapefruit. Flavor is a strong bitter grapefruit with a long bitter and dry finish. Malts are cracker and white bread. Perfectly in the background. The beer is super light and so easy to drink. The bitter aftertaste gives heft to the beer. Its really nice, just so easy to put down.

Draft at railroad. Pours clear orange with a small white head. The aroma has plenty of piney, resiny hops with some floral notes, faint orange or grapefruit. The taste has a light bitterness, some resin, semi dry, a tad chalky.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2014 Pours a lovely cloudy golden straw with a white head. Aroma is a little citrus with a hint of pine. Taste is bitter and hope like I was expecting. Little hints of citrus. Leaves a clean after taste.

On tap during a flight tasting at Carton. I'm not a huge fan. It's a good sessionable ipa like it was brewed to be but, it's too light and crisp for me. Boat uses kolsch yeast and German malts. It's very crisp, light, lemon and grass notes, refreshing. It's good on a summer day but not their best offering.

Drank from a can ( in a glass of Corse) A: grapefruit! Pine tree, mango, lemon rind, slight honey. A: cloudy yellow with a white head, ok head retention. T: grapefruit! Pine tree, pear, mango, touch of cracker maltiness, with a bitter back. P: pretty light and watery, low carbonation and a lingering bitterness. O: good for the session IPA or APA style. Super hoppy but no yeast or malt character. Good but not great

1.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Aroma is a pleasant grapefruit aroma. Malt is absent on the nose. Appearance is a cloudy, pale straw color. Head dissipated quickly. Hop flavor is lower than expected based on the aroma and has a grassy taste. A harsh bitterness lingers on the palate. Malt flavor is absent. Has a super light body with a lingering astringency in the mouthfeel. Overall it tastes like a hopped water with a lingering harsh bitterness. Would not buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fresh growler : amazing. one of my favorite beers - hop fragrance is so pungent, so fruity, so sappy with mango, tangerine, wild flowers, and fruity, musty pine sap/marijuana - in my opinion, the ultimate hop beer - only around 4.2% abv and all of the nuances of heavier fresh hop beers and balanced with a twinge of grainy malt - one of the best session beers I could imagine. flavor backs up aroma with dominant peach, mango, grapefruit rind, musty pine sap, and honey followed by some smooth grainy malt.
I would load my vessel with casks of this...
