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.

Underdogs88 (324) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Aroma is a pleasant grapefruit aroma. Malt is absent on the nose. Appearance is a cloudy, pale straw color. Head dissipated quickly. Hop flavor is lower than expected based on the aroma and has a grassy taste. A harsh bitterness lingers on the palate. Malt flavor is absent. Has a super light body with a lingering astringency in the mouthfeel. Overall it tastes like a hopped water with a lingering harsh bitterness. Would not buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drank awhile ago in a can, not a huge fan. Drank at Carton on tap, a million times better. Nice light sessionable, solid brew on tap!

2015 BJCP Category: 21B Specialty IPA: Session IPA

AROMA: Pineapple, grapefruit peel, faint garlic/onion in the background. 10/12

APPEARANCE: Pale banana yellow; murky body though no sediment. Large, off-white, soapy foam mostly dissipates. 2/3

FLAVOR: A melange of citrus, tropical fruits and earthy spices. Grapefruit is prominent, but more of a peel than a juicy taste. Some pineapple flavor throughout. Strong dry spicy sensation (rye/garlic bread) probably due to Kolsch yeast. Not much distinctive malt character, though enough to offer a modicum of balance. 17/20

MOUTHFEEL: Plenty of body for only 4.2%. Light/medium intensity; texture is smooth. CO2 low/medium - not quite crisp, but not paper thin either. Highly quaffable, refreshing, and sessionable. Lingering spicy aftertaste. 4/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Essentially a New England-style IPA as a session IPA. Works well as both. Lovely all around. 9/10

TOTAL SCORE: 42/50

Pours a hazy bright yellow with light white head. A strong citrus hop bomb aroma. A light and balanced taste of citrus, pine, hops, grains, and tropical fruit. A dey grain and bitter hop aftertaste, but also sweet with citrus.

On tap at the Paragon Tap in Clark NJ with Mike67. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a large white fluffy head, good lacing. Aroma is sweet citrusy mildly spice hops, some biscuit malt and light bready and yeast notes. Taste same as aroma mildly hopped sweet citrus and tropical fruit notes, malt and light bready. Palate is a medium body with good carb. Finish is sweet tropical citrus flavor and hops with some malt for balance. Overall a very good and tasty brew for summer drinking.

16 ounce can. Pours a clear orange color with a medium white head. A nice floral and perfume nose. A really flavorful brew, huge hop cones, oranges, pine. Very nice bitter finish. 4.2% wow! Tastes like 7%. Awesome. Id drink a growler of this.

Can. Cloudy canned-peach gold with a fuzzy head of white. Peppery hops also give off notes of grapefruit peel. Flavor adds a nice little floral sweetness sprinkled with pine needles and orange peel, finishing with gentle honey/cracker malt sweetness and mild bitterness. Lingering citrus pulp tang. Sessionable.

Growler from Joe Canal. Pours hazy golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of citrusy hops, tropical fruit and bready malt. Body is medium and crisp. Citrusy hops dominate the flavor while bready malt and ripe fruit provide support. Finish is long, dry, and grapefruity. Excellent brew.

Draught at Rattle & Hum West, NYC. Clear pale yellow/golden beer with a decent offwhite head. Hoppy pine and citrus aroma, grapes, some grass notes. Hoppy citrus flavor, pine, mango, oranges, some grapes. Nice hoppy beer but rather thin bodied.

Awesome session! Looks like lemonade. Graphefruit, dandalion, pine, citrus, bread, fresh herbs with a hoppy floral burst near the end. Super drinkable and super enjoyable. Top tier!
