Odd 13 Brewing / Stone "Berry Smooth Moves"
Style - Mixed Berry Milk Shake IPA
ABV - 7.3%
Appearance – Cloudy dark straw color, reminiscent of agua de tamarindo (tamarind water). Overall lack of head retention, no lacing, & off-white head (when present).
Aroma – Tropical & fruity hoppy aroma, lots of stone fruit (peach, nectarine, apricot), hints of vanilla bean & light dark fruit/ berries.
Taste – Nose carries over with a stronger presence of vanilla bean & berries upon tasting. Sweet & fruity character from the adjuncts are balanced nicely by the Tropical hop character. Hoppy Push-up popsicle comes to mind.
Palate – Nice fully body with a silky/creamy finish. Medium carbonation.
Overall – Our take on a Milkshake IPA, Nestle Push-pop popsicle with a solid hop character to balance it out & remind you that you’re still drinking a beer.
Reason behind the name – Lots of berries in this nearly smoothy milkshake beer.
