Year of New Beer: Shake (Passion Fruit & Guava Milkshake IPA), Abandoned Building Brewery (MA)

As expected, the two labeled fruits are very noticeable on the nose, along with hints of peach and mango. Warmth brings a subtle kiss of vanilla. The fruits are ever so slightly tart up front, but quickly calm down to produce a light, pithy bitterness. Along the middle, vanilla and lactose provide a gentle sweetness, while the oats lend a smooth, creamy body. I'm not a huge fan of this style, but this one is pretty tasty. Just one of several pickups at an awesome little bottle shop in Northampton.
