Weighting in a perfect 7.5% ABV
I can’t say enough good things about this beer. Citrus bursting suds, malt base and a fresh hoppy flavor a beer lovers palate would consider paradise. Chuck full of grapefruit and a touch of pineapple, a biting beer full of heaven. Reminds me of…..

The Brewery spin
Enjoy the clover honey hue and tropical nose. Simultaneously Punchy and soothing with a big body and a finish that boasts pineapple and grapefruit. Flower power is hopped and dry-hopped five different times throughout the brewing and fermentation process.
My Smoke and Toke Take
Has a great golden color and the lacy head remains on the glass. Nice bite, great hoppy flavor, leaves just enough bitterness on the tongue and has a clean finish. Can barely taste the alcohol. Great beer. Refreshing, strong and flat out awesome. Ithaca Brewing company has a winner with this beer. The best beer I have consumed in a long time.
Weighting in at a whopping 9.2% ABV.
This is a stout with a kick and half. A hint of chocolate, thin head from out of the growler and a minimal aftertaste of alcohol. Leaves lips sticky but then again I was smoking a bit when I tasted it. Could have been cottonmouth…

Summer’s final ferry has departed from Port Jefferson Harbor, and colder weather is imminent. A suitable remedy for winter’s inevitable arrival? Starboard Oatmeal Stout. A luscious, velvet-smooth pour of sweet chocolate, roast, and comforting warmth, Starboard Oatmeal Stout is brewed with flaked oats, brown sugar, and raisins. Breakfast in a glass, basically. Dessert, too. Every meal, actually, and the perfect companion for contemplation near any serene winter landscape. Especially a shoreline.
My Smoke And Toke Take
Overall I enjoyed this stout. Aptly named SOS because after a few you may need to be rescued from the couch. It packs a punch and will certainly get you whacked out of your skull if you have more than a few. For a beer with 9.2% alcohol you can barely taste the alcohol, has a dry finish, silky going down and a brown sugar stickiness on the lips. Good stout, kick ass buzz!
