From Vancouver BC’s R&B Brewing comes the “Shake Your Fruity Milkshake India Pale Ale” the newest beer in their Mount Pleasant Series of beers. The beer pours a cloudy orange colour with a white head. The aroma consists of tons of fruit including orange, pineapple and berries with lactose. The flavour is of lactose, orange, pineapple, tropical fruits, berries, citrus rind, mild resin, earth and some bitterness. This beer has a ton of body from all of the oats used. The alcohol content comes in at 7.3% with an IBU of 38. The Milkshake IPA isn’t for everyone but I am a total convert. Keep these fruit bombs coming with the nice sweet finish.
Commercial Description: What is a Milkshake IPA?

To the beer world, this brew style resembles a classic milkshake. Brewed with oats and apple puree for a soft and full body. Primary flavours are of juicy orange and pineapple.
