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.

16 oz. can which mysteriously showed in my fridge after my little beer gathering. I suspect jcwattsrugger. Poured into my oversized snifter. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a fingers worth of white bubbly head. Light, but sharp hop aroma. Grapefruit and pine resin. Hop bite is not as pronounced in the flavor, being tempered a bit with bready malt. Medium bodied with a light bitter aftertaste. I can see myself drinking several of these, if they were available to me. Now I gotta get a boat.

Given to me by Adrian Hume -- This pours a hazy straw color, with white head. Aroma is crisp, hoppy. Flavor is much the same. Very nice session beer.

Interesting session IPA. Loads of hops and citrus in taste and smell. Itís a very well crafted beer Iím just not a fan of the citrusy IPAs.

Hmmmm........ Simply put for what it is...... Unbelievable! Obviously not one of the better IPA's on the market but I challenge anyone to find a better "session" IPA. Lots of flavor packed into the slightly higher than 4% abv, great smell, light body, very easy drinking. The majority of "session" IPA's have that watered down taste to it. Not this one. I am currently trying this one after traveling to the north jersey/NYC area from the ATL area........ wish I had this available down South.....maybe one day. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tasted on 2/8/14 from a 16oz can at the Saturday night post-grand-tasting-tasting at RBWG Asheville, big thanks to MaxxDaddy. Pours bright pale yellow with an average white head that slowly recedes to an average collar of lace. The nose is bright citrus hops with a hint of resin and some light bread malt. The flavor is the same, with some added herbal grass, very nicely balanced. The body is light with fizzy, average carbonation, and a long resin and citrus hops finish.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2014 16oz can pours hazy pale straw gold with a finger of head. Nose is juicy tropical fruit, pineapple, grapefruit, lemon, mango. Taste is clean soft cracker malt base with nice piney orange, pineapple, lemon, pineapple, juicy notes. Finish is mild bitterness with soft malt and lasting citrus juice. One of the better session ales Iíve tried.

From the one pint can. Thanks jcwattsrugger! The pour is a cloudy, milky pale yellow with a moderate white fizzy head that fades. The earthy vaguely piney hops are found in the nose along with a modest little toasted biscuit character. Some grapefruit too. Light to medium body. The taste has a solid floral hop character but not explosively bitter. The grapefruit tends to over a lot of the taste.
