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.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2012 Tap at Gingerman. Very clean, light, easy drinking, nice hop bitterness throughout, extremely dry. Excellent summer quaffer.

[on tap at Proof, EWR airport] Fresh citrus and pine hops along with some sulfurous, "young beer" aromatics. Hazy yellow under a lasting, pristine flannel blanket. Extremely well balanced flavour of citrus peel, lemon and grapefruit and lime, delicate pine, and dry, base malt with a moderate bitterness and clean fermentation. Light body, prickly carbonic bite. Very quaffable--the beer version of lemonade in the summer.

Minderbinder (2198) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 24, 2015
EBF Pours blond with low white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is of fruits, pine, citrus. Taste is pretty much the same, with bitterness indeed. Palate: Pop-lik ecarbonation (high). Light body. Overall: Very good. Sessionnable.

njdrinker (13) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 17, 2015
This beer is basically bitter water from a can. Hazy but not in a good way. The Kolsch yeast also seems to leave the malt bill from lacking any flavor at all. Not happy with this beer. It is basically to clean and watery with a inch of hops. Not the best example of a session beer at all. This is just hoppy water

RRistow12 (365) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - MAR 16, 2015
Tasted from draft. Pours a hazy gold with white head. Pretty strong aroma of citrus hops and pine. Some nice grapefruit and lemon notes. Taste is much more pine dominated. Floral notes as well. Moderate to heavily bitter. A little citrus flavor. Great for a session ipa. Reminds me a lot of Founders All Day IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very easy drinking session with watery hops plagued by grapefruit and pine. Foggy pour with citrusy dishwater aroma. Very good for its purpose and can be thrown down in quantity. Cheers!

Hazy gold pour. Small, small white head. No lacing. Big aromas of orange, lemon, grapefruit and pine. Taste is slight roasted corn. Not much else. Watery hops.

joeneugs (3740) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 1, 2015
16 oz. can from PhillyCraft. Thanks Vin! It pours a very hazy pale yellow color with a disappearing white head. The aroma is fantastic with florals, kumquat, tangerine, mango, hints of melon and hop spice. The flavor is intense with grapefruit that turns into a rather strong pithy bitterness in the finish. There’s also some florals and light pine notes to go along with heavy grapefruit and tangerine citrus. Very light, crisp and clean on the palate with very little malt presence except for some minor white cracker notes. Acidity is high for the style and borders on astringent due the what seems like a massive dry hop for such a small beer. Super tasty and absolutely crushable. Love this.

Draft at Bier and Cheese, Astoria, NYC. Pale creamy yellow, with thin white head. Musty sweet honey. Lovely. Sweet, tart, a little lemon. Quite nice.

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.
