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.

Draft/growler. Pours a very light hazy straw color with a medium white head. Nose is citrus and grass. Taste is citrus up front but with a bready malt finish. Crisp and refreshing. Excellent session beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16 oz can. Misty straw with white froth. Nose is mango, pine, toffee and pink grapefruit. Crisp with biting carb and a resiny finish. Tastes like it smells; more grapefruit and pine with lemon oil. Great hop blast for the ABV; almost too much for sessioning.

16 oz. can, huge thanks to Augie for bringing this down from the brewery. Turbid straw pour, gorgeous fluffy white head. Nose is rich, divine, and loaded with sweet pink grapefruit, a touch of peach, lemongrass, clean hay, and white pine. Flavor is a bit more restrained on the hop flavor with a touch more crisp grain, but drinkable and stellar. I could absolutely put a hurting on a case of this on a nice day. Good shit.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2015 Out of can. Auite pale, fluffy white head that laces nicely. Grapefruit, grapefruit, grapefruit, somewhat medicinal aroma with some orange notes. Spicy saison character, which is probably why this is such a hit with the extremists, but donít take that the wrong way ó this is a very good, subtle, tasty session beer. Bitter and not sweet, with more body than youíre expecting. Have to say this drinks like a saison for me.

HighlanderOne (1037) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - JAN 17, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2015 On tap at Dog & Cask. Faint hop aroma. Golden with just a trace of head. Floral and piney hops with toasted malt. Dry feel. Good session choice.

5oz pour at Ginger Man NY. Pour clear gold, billowy, but fast two finger head, some lacing and retention. Aroma of lemon rind, grass and light grapefruit. Taste is medium bitter on a slight sweet malt bill. Light bodied, medium carbonation with a creamy mouth feel.
