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.

This beer had a great aroma. To bad the goodness stopped there. After that is a horrible bitterness that is only accentuated by the total lack of any malt. This beer is basically bitter water. Horrible ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can thanks to Eugene. HAzed light gold pour, struggles to form a head. The smell is great, bright tropical fruits, hint of mineral. Flavor is light and refreshing, drinks like grapefruit juice blended with malt flavor.

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.

16oz can pours a clear, bright gold with some fluffy white head. Nose is very nice, bright lemon, wet grass, zested orange, some straw. Flavor is light and crisp, grassy, straw, lemon, a little herbal tea, chamomile. Crisp finish. Slightly tannic.

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
