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.

Leighton (9855) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2014
Can big thanks to dmac! Pours mostly clear, yellow-good with a frothy, white head. Loads of pithy citrus on the nose, bright grapefruit, tangerine. Light sweet flavor with sturdy citrus rind bitterness, moderate juicy grapefruit, slight spicy pine needles. Light bodied with average carbonation. Balanced finish, lots more citrus pith, lemon rind, grapefruit, faint grass. Great stuff. The more I drink of this the more I like it. Extremely crushable.
