In this beer blog, we are going to get into another brew from Rochester Mills Beer Co. I am talking about their Cornerstone IPA. It is their flagship beer. If you read my earlier beer blog post on their Milkshake Stout, you know the history of this brewery. If you have not, please, read that beer blog post to get to know this brewery. Let us get into the beer.
It has a clear copper color with a semi white head on this India Pale Ale. The smell is mango notes. The taste is mango notes with nice malty backbone to cut through the hops. It is pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.cplanet.com):
Cornerstone IPA – 6.6% abv. India Pale Ale
This unfiltered amber ale is packed full of hop bitterness, flavor and aroma. IPA is the most bitter beer style and it is enjoyed by people we refer to as “hopheads.” We dry hop this beer with a combination of English and American hop varieties for a wonderfully aromatic finish.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
In the end, I love this IPA from Rochester Mills Brewery. I love the hops from aroma and taste it gives off in the beer. It has a nice malty backbone that supports this India Pale Ale. This beer reminds me of something the beer drinker would get from Summit Saga, Maui Brewery IPA, and/or Epic IPA. It has a nice tropical notes. I love this IPA and I will be drinking this brew as much as Frankenmuth Batch 69 IPA. I highly recommend this brew. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
