Brewer: Anderson Valley Brewing Company
This is a brew for hop heads. It’s big, bold and bitter. It’s not quite what I expected from Anderson Valley since the Boont Amber Ale is quite mellow. Boont Amber Ale also happens to be one of my favorite amber ales out there. This beer pours a beautiful copper color with a soft white head. It has solid lacing with dissipating foam as my glass becomes more empty. The initial taste is filled with super dry grapefruit and resin. It finishes with a lingering pine flavor. This is a prime example of a west coast ipa. It’s got in your face hops with a strong flavor profile from start to finish.
