Style | ABV
American Pale Ale (APA) |  4.20% ABV

Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
Described by the brewer as more of an American Pale Ale. It's not an India Pale Ale.

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.

Session Ale
ABV: 4.2% | IBU: 35 | SRM: 3.5

1/2 growler filled at Whole Foods in Yonkers NY

Pours heavily clouded dull and yellow straw in color. Delicate off white head, leaves nice looking high, delicate scattered fields of lacing.

Fruity nose, with melon, grapefruit and some honey.

Brightly fruity and flavorful ale, more grapefruit, nice tropical fruit characteristics.

First brew I've tried from Carton and I'm impressed. Hope to see cans available in my area.
