Boundary Bay Amber

CIMG3878

I got a growler of this amber the last time I was in Bellingham. I’m just now posting the review, sorry about that. This beer features Crystal, Carastan, and Munich malts with Columbus and Cascade hops.

Stats:
American Amber Ale. Washington.

Dark copper color. The head was decent when it was fresh.

It has a really wonderful nose. It’s highly hopped, so you get some pine and a floral spice note, but it’s balanced by some caramelized malt that give it a slight sweetness and brown sugar thing with some dark fruits.

Excellent mouthfeel, medium bodied with a good amount of chewy-ness.

Like I said, they didn’t skimp on the hops on this one. Lots of floral hops with that pine flavor, which tend to take over the palate. You do get some of the malt in a brown sugar and plum and blueberry flavor. Medium-high bitterness on the finish.

Not a bad beer, but I think the hops overwhelm a bit, but that doesn’t bother me too much. 87 points.
