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.

Can: The aroma consists of citrus, lemon/lemon peel, light dank notes, and a touch of tropical fruits. It pours a hazy dull golden-orange with a small white head that quickly fades to a minimal film outlined by a thin ring. The flavor starts with moderate citrus, and light tropical fruits. The finish has light-moderate grapefruit and light lemon. It’s light bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, this one of the best Session IPAs I’ve had.

Had this on draft at a pub up in New Jersey, also saw a kicked draft line at the hotel the company conference was at. Poured a mostly clear pale yellow, slight head. Aroma was a very pleasant shot of grapefruit hop. Flavor was pale malt with a really nice grapefruit hop finish. Unlike some session IPA’s, this didn’t come across as too thin, and the balance was nice, albeit hop oriented. Drank more like an APA, and a good one. Good stuff.

16 zo can courtesy of Jimsal27, Thanks. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a small white head that recedes to a fine ring. The aroma is mild with grapefruit and pine. The taste features, grapefruit, limes, lemons and melons set nice in a pils malt base. The palate is light but effective and the carbonation is lively. Finishes short and dry. Overall: Very tasty brew--I’d drink the heck out of this if it was available locally to me.

Draft. Hazy straw pour with off-white head. Nose is grapefruit, pineapple, tangerine, some peppery notes. Tastes very citric, hoppy, with grapefruit and pineapple juicy flavor, a pop in your mouth, and ample hops with a spare malt balance. This one is like the Tasmanian Devil of Session IPAs.

Now this is really something! A session IPA that kills a lot of IIPA in terms of hop aroma, flavor and bitterness. This is the kind of beer I can really get behind. It is a very cloudy yellow orange w/ a small white head and the appearance is about the only unremarkable thing about it. It has this just huge orange and grapefruit character from the nose to the citrus rind bitterness in the finish. There is some pineapple and other tropical fruit floating around in there as well but this is all about a huge expression of hops. There is just a touch of malt but this is very dry. It has a medium to full body and moderate carbonation--very juicy, almost hefeweizen-like in terms of texture, which works wonderfully. It finishes with a very strong but not harsh lingering bitterness that just begs for another sip. This beer sets the standard for the emerging session IPA style.
