Freehold Brewing Co. Air Mail IPA Belgian IPA at 6% ABV | 40 IBU (C$3.60 at Collective, 473 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 22-Feb-2019, reviewed 28-Mar-2019)

Appearance: hazy medium gold with two fingers (and growing) of fluffy pale ivory head, excellent retention and moderate soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: Belgian funk, grainy pale malt, citrus zest, faint pine. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, medium bitter funky finish. (4/5)

My first one from yet another new Calgary brewery, and a decent example of the style.  Moderately funky Belgian esters dominate over grainy pale malt and mild hop notes of citrus zest and pine. (15/20)

7.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
