From a bottle best by 9/4/18. Light amber color, a finger of white head. Grapefruit smell. Medium feel. Grapefruit flavors with some biscuit malt underneath. I'm puzzled by the relatively low rating, this one nails the APA style.

Light, but tasty. Sorry, but my palate isn't more educated. Doesn't taste bitter to me, slightly citrus

Overall, a solid, drinkable beer. Nothing more, nothing less. Name sort of pisses me off in that it reminds me of a fat old dude fishing on a boat and getting trashed. Really doesn't help the image. If they changed the packaging and name, would do much better.

A bready, crisp beer that is light on the hops. Rounds off in the middle, buscuit middle takes over the taste and hops sneaks in, in the middle.

Taste rating in words: A safe middle of the road drive.

Love a fish on the label... this one of the best SweetWater beers out there other than the Hatchery series. Not bitter at all. Guess the "Extra" mean "more" pale.... it's not as strong tasting as other pale ale's. Good at beach, on deck, and in the living room.
