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!

drank from the can..cheers for sharing this one..really enjoy the 16 oz can..everything about this is solid..albeit from the can..next time will hopefully get a few more and enjoy from a proper glass, but so it goes..light bodied, sessionable..but far from plain jane..flavorful hops..decent bitterness..quite a lot of flavor profile for the low abv..very solid all around..cheers carton..would be nice if I could have easier access to this and enjoy in the warmer weather...

Poured hazy golden with a rich white head. Aroma of grapefruit, lemons, and pine needles. Pretty well balanced and certainly easy to put down a few. Nice session ale.

473ml can - thanks VastActiv!
Odd fishy aroma. Pale, hazy, some floaty bits. Simple thin malty body. Rough raw hops. Perfumey finish. Thin fizzy palate. An extremely poor ale.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2015 (Can, 0,473 l, at laiti’s, 20150613, thanks) The beer poured pale golden and hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had grapefruit and citricness. Palate was light bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were grapedruit, citricness, pine, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was bitter and fruity. Too one-dimensional but nice.

473ml can @Laiti’s, thanks. Cloudy pale light brown color. No head. Doesn’t look good. Sweet, fruity, orange in aroma. Very mellow aroma. Sweet, light hops, fruity, orange peel and citrus in taste. Fruity tones in aftertaste. Soft bitterness. Mellow and tender. Nice one.

Aroma has tropical fruits, pineapple juice and hints of biscuits. Feels a bit thin. Flavour has tropical fruits, pineappe juice and hints of cereal. Finishes with minerals, some grassy hops and menthol. Also grapefruit. A bit straightforward and the bitterness starts to feel a bit herbal and harsh at the end of the glass. Refreshing anyway.

Pours hazy yellowish with a small head. Aroma of juicy fruits, lemon, grapefruit, citrus and resin. Taste is crisp, grapefruity and hoppy with some fruits, citrus and lemon. Finish is crisp, hoppy and grapefruity with some lemon and citrus. Okay, pretty quaffable.

Can. Pours a hazy bright straw color with very tiny bubbly head that disappears in seconds (but the color looks fantastic). Aromas of pine, citrus, and grass. Flavor was grapefruit, pine, and pineapple. Light body, thin texture, average carbonation. Suoper smooth to finish and insanely easy to drink. At 4.2% you wouldn’t expect something to have such a nice aroma and flavor, but this hit it perfect. Impressive. Can was an extra in a trade and wish I had another now.

Best Session IPA I’ve ever had. Solid hop flavor, but still light enough to make 12 a good idea
