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

Dank hops with a balance of citrus and bitter pine. Piney and grassy nose. Huge flavor. Thinness and ABV are welcome here. Great flavor at drinkable level.

Got six beers to review from this brewery. This one is the first. Here goes:

A: Pale, hazy, gold color. Can't really see through the beer owing to the haze - it's a rather murky brew. However, the beer pours a great head that leaves a lot of lacing. Overall, pretty good.

S: Rather good. Very floral and herby - almost like a bouquet of flowers. Also contains a lots of tropical flavors such as grapefruit, mango, pineapple, and lemon. Overall a very good brew smell-wise.

T: Follows the nose, which is a good thing. Hardly any malt. Taste is comprised of flowers, herbal spice, grapefruit, pineapple, and lemon. Overall, quite good.

F: Actually not very light-bodied despite the low alcohol level. Nice and full-bodied.

O: Very good beer. This one's a keep. Bought a four-pack at the brewery after tasting it.

Growler - pours cloudy pale golden yellow with a foamy white head. The odor is strong, IPA, grapefruit, lemon, citrus, pineapple, passion fruit, floral, grassy, bread like. The taste mild, bread like, herbal, grapefruit, passion fruit, honey, light bitterness throughout.

Just great, clean, crisp, juicy, and crushable. Get it, drink it, and then drink more. Another great offering from Carton!
