Milkshake IPA with Blood Orange

We know what you're thinking. What the on earth is a Milkshake IPA? The term ‘Milkshake’, which started as kind if a brewing putdown, was redeemed and eventually championed by Tired Hands Brewing when they introduced their Milkshake Series of IPAs, that over time attracted an almost cultish following. Our take on the Milkshake IPA is genuinely one of a kind. A collaboration brew with Lake Drum Brewing and The Beer Market. Using a unique malt blend of NYS Pale, White What, Flaked Oats and lactose to enrich the beer, we were able to recreate the thick heavy and slightly creamy mouthfeel similar to a milkshake. To add a citrus profile to the brew, we added 84 lbs of Blood Orange, as well as a potent blend of Citra, Loral, Falconers Flight and Azacca, Hops to promote just the right amount of IPA bitterness. The result is a low alcohol beer with combined fruit tones, tartness and acidity of the orange melded to a citrusy and sympathetic hop menu that’s delivered to the palate via a creamy milk sugar enriched vessel. This one you have to try to believe.
