4.05/5 rDev -0.7%
On draft at Tap and Barrel, Smithtown, NY.
Poured an almost neon pale straw hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.
The smell featured a clean grapefruit and grainy pale malt.
The taste consisted of a sharp grapefruit hop, with a bitter rindiness at the finish. Clean, grainy pils (seemingly) malt thinned out the hops slightly. Full lingering bitterness.
The mouthfeel was toward the lighter side of the style.
Overall a tasty, über hoppy session IPA.

Boat. Simple as it gets. Let's give it a whirl. Popping the tall boy, I get a grapefruit hop waft, almost West Coast-like. But wait this is East coast. Pours to a bright slightly cloudy yellow with a bright white head. On the taste this brew has a good semi bitter hoppiness right off the bat. Very similar in taste to an ESB. Taste continues with a balanced middle then a semi bitter aftertaste. Not a bad brew. Simple as the name states, potentially a session brew as well as it packs good flavor for a 4.2% AC. For what it is it is decent and not at all offensive.

Pounder can into a snifter. Thanks Steve for sharing this. It appears a pale hazed golden yellow color with a firm white cap.
The aroma is quite bold and hoppy: herbaceous with dank and grassy notes before getting fruity and pithy. Lots of hoppiness with a bit of wheat.
The tastr is bitter and mutually grassy and pithy. Some herbs and a very minor wheat-like grain touch to break things up and provide contrast.
This is a very light bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. At times it feels a little watery but its to be expected I suppose. Overall easy drinking and something I could effortlessly put down as it gets warmer out.
