What the brewers say

"Milkshake IPA brewed with hundreds of pounds of fresh strawberry puree and vanilla beans."

What our panel thought

"Bright, rich strawberry in aroma and flavor: moderately sweet, just enough bitterness to balance. Middle-of-the-road milkshake—soft, full-bodied, with little hop or malt character. Finishes dry enough. Nails the fruit ripeness balanced by vanilla and lactose."

What our editors thought

"Exuberant strawberry-smoothie nose captures nuances—sweet flesh, leafy hops—in an otherwise intense beer that throws nuance aside. Could be read as cloying—but it’s also engaging, with expert-tier strawberry expression."
