4.5/5 rDev +10.3%
A - Pours a glowing, very hazy straw color with a finger of dense bright white head. Great retention and fantastic lacing. 4.25
S - Light citrusy/seedy hops, a nice touch of grain, minimal underlying sweetness. A bit faint. 3.75
T - Surprisingly bitter up front, kind of like a leafy bitter, packs a distinguished punch at the finish. Light lemon and grapefruit rind, some serious burnt wheat characteristics. Sweetness doesnt shine past the wet bitterness at all. Finish is wet piney bitter. 4.5
M - Lighter bodied, less carbonation than expected but it works really well with the relatively intense flavor profile. 4.25
O -Fantastic, powerful flavor profile relative to the body. This is a great session if you want something with big flavor! 4.25

Huge thanks to egrace84 for a can of this beer!
16oz tallboy can.
poured into SP Wine Stem.
Appearance: pale straw yellow bodied beer with 2 fingers of tall white head that drops down to thin cap and spotty lacing.
Smell: Nice mix of citrus forward hops with a compliment of tropical fruits and stone fruits. Add in some bready malts in the back drop and you have a great smelling sessionable hoppy beer.
Taste: Mild bitterness. Starts with juicy grapefruit, bitter lemon zest, and sweet orange pulp, pineapples, slightly resinous pine needles, and a hint of chalk that actually adds some dryness to the beer. Really interesting dynamics here. Lots of flavor in this session ale. Hint of bready malts add just a touch of sweetness to balance the beer.
Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with low almost moderate carbonation. Really drinkable beer.
Overall: Glad that I got to try this! I like boating and I can now confirm that I like Carton's boat beer. Next, I gotta drink this beer out on the fishing boat on a hot day! Love that this beer is canned. Carlton makes a good beer. Its a little hoppier than I would have expected a session beer to be, but its not overly bitter. No complaints here with a beer that has 35 IBU's.
