a - vigorous pour (only way to get a good head with these milkshakes) resulting in a great fluffy head that dissipated after a minute or two. hazy beer, golden hay, moderate lacing.

s - vanilla and melon on the nose, another fruit I can't quite pick out but it's not lychee. some subtle mint.

t - vanilla in the front... and the back. works really well with the light piney hops. faint lychee that I couldn't pick out otherwise, melon, strawberry, mint, orange, mango.

m - creamy, sweet, low bitterness, full-bodied, good carbonation for the style, a little slick.

o - didn't get much lychee here and overall it actually tastes more like a mangosteen. it's great and dependable but there isn't much of a detectable difference between this and the strawberry milkshake.

Looks great, with a unique milky-hazy appearance. But other than that... overtly sweet, cloying. I don't get much milkshake flavor. I shared it with friends and none of us wanted to finish it. The passionfruit version was a lot better.

White head. Hazy golden yellow.

Very similar to the passion fruit. Pretty much the same beer but hoppier and less fruity. The lychee and vanilla come through more.

Very nice IPA. Enjoyable.
