Town Square Brewing Cornerstone IPA American IPA at 6.4% ABV (C$4.00 at Sobeys Liquor Okotoks, 473 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 18-Feb-2019, reviewed 21-Feb-2019)

Appearance: hazy straw with three fingers of rocky white head, excellent retention and moderate chunky lacing. (5/5) Aroma: zesty citrus, pale crackery malt, tropical fruit, light pine, green weeds. (8/10) Taste: moderate-low sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation tending slightly soft, off-dry lingering bitter slightly astringent oily finish. (4/5)

Only my second one from this brewery, but they continue to impress. Not quite an NEIPA, but very definitely a modern IPA, with bright hops immediately upon opening and a pleasantly lean and dry body. I particularly like the oily citrus zest in the finish. (16/20)

8/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
