4.25/5 rDev +4.2%
A: Hazy cloudy orange in color with a slight transparency, leaves about a two finger head at the top that goes away rather quickly and just leaves a ring around the top that turns into a nice lacing around the glass.
S: Hints of grapefruit and lemon zest, some small notes of honey as well, the pine and resin come through as well.
T: Almost exactly like the nose lots of citrus and grapefruit up front, nice hop kick in the beginning, a slight spice as well, and a sweet backbone.
M: Moderate amount of carbonation, slick, medium bodied.
O: Overall this is a great brew from Carton, this is a local brewery for me and proud that it comes from NJ, very well balanced beer and enjoyed it thoroughly. Great Flavors.

4.75/5 rDev +16.4%
Appearance: very light yellow. Lightest APA I've seen
Smell: pleasant citrusy hops
Taste:,this is an amazing APA. I usually like a good malt base to balance out a strong hop flavor. In this case there less malt but the hops aren't over the top so they shine through in a perfect citrusy flavor.
Overall: this beer is total genius. Light, but hoppy, but not overpowering. Extremely refreshing and would pair well with a ton of foods. Fantastic anytime, but especially in the warm weather.

Carton BOAT Session Ale
16oz can, no date
Pours a hazy yellow with a greenish tinge. No head to speak of really. Spotty lacing. (2.5)
Aroma is hoppy and lemony, with a slight “dank” note. Possibly Amarillo? American hops all the way. Nice. (4)
First impression is of huge bitterness stuff for a 4.2% ABV brew. Earthy hop notes contrast the strong grapefruit note. Tastes like straight pilsner malt, maybe some wheat. Very dry. Could use more body. Finish is bitter and a touch grainy. (3, 3)
Aroma was great, but in the end, the beer drinks a bit unbalanced with the heavy bitterness and lack of malt backbone, though I don’t dislike it. A very firm session ale. (3.25)
