Year of New Beer: Mango Milkshake NEIPA, Rock House Brewing

Written By: Dion on 08/10/2020

Pretty subdued nose overall on this one. Mango for sure, with auxiliary notes that present like peach, apricot, and tangerine. The flavor department is where things elevate substantially. Mango is soft and juicy, with just a hint of pithiness that gets reigned in by the lactose, giving it a subtle sweetness along the middle. Nice tropical notes to finish, zero bitterness. A lot of attempts at "milkshake" New England IPAs fail to deliver on the lactose end, but this one nails it. Well done.
