This is a beer that I swore that I had reviewed before, but clearly hadn’t. Let’s crack it open.
Style: American Pale Ale
Trivia: According to wikipedia.com, “As with most American small craft, its origin is not well documented. It is generally accepted that Captain Hazelton Seaman invented the first sneakbox about 1836, in West Creek, New Jersey. It was usually built of Atlantic white cedar wood, known by many as Jersey cedar, which was once plentiful throughout the mid-Atlantic states. It was conceived as a low-profile, lightweight, seaworthy hunting craft that one man could easily handle in any of the weather conditions likely to be encountered in the Jersey marshes. The first printed description appeared in Forest and Stream on April 3, 1874 in a short letter from Robert B. White. White included a rough dimensional drawing that is recognizably a sneakbox.”
Random: I miss going on boats on vacation. They’re always so calming.
The beer poured with a one finger, white head that was rather thick. It dissipated at a moderate pace and left some lacing on the glass. The body was bright yellow and cloudy with only some visible carbonation. The nose was huge for the style. It was filled with some pine and herbal notes and quickly transitioned into lots of pineapple and mango. The taste was even better. It was a total tropical fruit bomb with pineapple, mango and papaya and then a pleasant grassy note came through with cilantro. The body was super light with a lot of carbonation. It had a medium length finish with fruit. This beer was flavorful and outstanding. I would definitely have this again.
