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.

Can at Ranch-a-Thon. Aroma of grapefruit, hay, cat piss and some weed. Taste is one of the best session IPAs palate-wise I’ve had. Not thin at all. Bitterness is there in the beginning, some lemon zest, moderately dry which does work here. Wow, this is a really nice session IPA that I couldn’t really pick out at all from not being a 6%+ beer.

Draft at Mug’s Alehouse. Pours a cidery color with an inch of white foam. Aroma is grapefruit and citrus zest, light lychee, fruity yeast. Fresh and vibrant. Taste is grapefruit juice, lemon-lime soda, strong pine, soapy mouth-drying hop bitterness. Big flavor, low ABV. Medium to low carbonation. Nice.

Mep3222 (481) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - APR 26, 2014
Has a slight floral hoppy aroma and them some lagerish funk. Slight hops come though in flavor as well but not nearly as much as I would like. Light and slight watery. Flavors are not nearly as good as all day ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

canned rew thank you so much maxx for this USA #1 session IPA fuck you brits. this beer is pretty chill. clean. reminds me of hill farmstead walden, with a touch more pine and grapefruit bitterness. very drinkable. dry. would prefer every so slightly toned down bitterness. but the orangepeel, tangerine, grapefruit, hint of resin hop character chill. very soft lemony cream and grass taste. fun hopes. beer lifts.

hopscotch (9120) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2014
Can... Mostly-clear yellow pour with a small, wispy, white head. Stubborn retention. The fragrance highlights are juicy grapefruit and earthy pine. Light-bodied and sandpapery with lively carbonation. The flavor is acrid, acidic and packed with rindy bitterness. Short, crisp, bitter finish. Surprisingly good. Can courtesy of mikeq215!

jkwood04 (3880) - Connecticut, USA - APR 10, 2014
Big can. Looks light. Aroma of floral and lightly citrusy hops, some dough, and pale malts. Flavor the same with a nice hoppiness. Average to lighter texture. A solid session IPA.

Smell from can is mostly lemons and some underlying maltiness and is very pleasant. Pours a surprisingly cloudy straw color. Taste is awesome, citrus fruits from the hops and a nice crispiness from the kolsch yeast. Has a bite on the back end that is less than pleasant but overall a solid representation of the style. I would gladly chug these at a summer festival or while partying on a lake.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4909) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a cloudy pale yellow color with a medium sized foamy white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was dryish perfume and citrus. The flavor was dry and thin with perfume and citrus. Medium length finish. Light body - very thin. Uninspired.
