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.

Cloudy, just darker than lemonade. Citrus nose, suggesting the great taste to come. Paradoxically,this beer is light and mouthfilling at the same time. This is a very refreshing brew, glad I stopped in at Bistro 55 for NJ Craft Beer Day!

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!

This is a unique brew and amazing. The smell is that of piney hops and the taste is crisp, hoppy, refreshing. Enjoy this beer anytime of day as its a simple 4.2%!

Pours a very hazy and bright golden banana yellow color with a half finger white head that immediately settles into a thin ring. Minimal spotty lacing left behind. Looks more like a Berliner than a pale ale and the lack of retention/lacing hurts the appearance. Subtle floral hop aroma with faint zesty spice and a pale malt backbone. A touch or citrus along with grass and pine needle followed by biscuit, bread and some light fruit. Medium body wih tight carbonation and a crisp, spicy hop bite that lingers over the pale malts into a dry finish. Bitter and spicy with grassy hops and pine needle along with pepper and corianders. This is countered by a pale malt backbone with hints of bread yeast, biscuit and light fruit. Kind of tame and flavors seem a bit off to me. Feels more like a Belgian golden/pale ale with zesty spice and bland hop character. A lot of people who’s palates I trust really like this beer so I’d like to give it another try at some point but my first impression isn’t a very good one.

16 oz can poured, shard by Maxxdaddy. Huge thanks for helping my state tick quest with this one. Rating from notes. Pours a cloudy pale yellow color with a thin sandy head. Hop forward, citrus grapefruit aroma. Cool flavor, with soft straw, lemon peel bitter, and a light mint finish. Nice hop profile throughout. Solid session. Shame I don’t have more.

on tap at Roger Wilco in Pennsauken NJ - nice dark amber color. Aroma and flavor very hoppy. Surprisingly low alcohol for the flavor/style.
