Boundary Bay IPA

CIMG0684

The requisite IPA from Boundary Bay. Boundary Bay is the largest brew pub based on beer sales in the nation, impressive.

Stats:
India Pale Ale. 6.4% ABV. Bellingham, WA.

Hazy orange color, with a bit of lacing.

Very hoppy with some pine, grassyness, grapefruit, caramel, lemon on the nose.

Quite carbonated, but light mouthfeel.

Very bitter back, slightly off balance. Pine notes up front with a little grapefruit and lemon.

Too off balanced for me. This is why I havn’t been a big fan of IPAs in general. The bitterness just overrides a lot of the palate. 84 Points.

Simple question for today’s review: are you a hophead?
