Notes: Brewed with oats, lactose sugar, and wheat flour. Conditioned atop Madagascar vanilla beans and a copious amount of luscious lychee purée. Hopped intensely with Mosaic and Citra. Dreamt up with the sweethearts at @omnipolloshatt.

Canned 03/01/2022, it pours very cloudy yellow gold color with 2 finger thick off white colored head that faded slowly and left good foamy lacing coating the glass. It smells like lemon, yuzu, grapes, fresh cut flowers, zest of grapefruit, vanilla, Razzles candy and malty notes like biscuit and/or dry yeast.

Tastes of lemon, grapefruit, tangerine, grapes, tropical fruits, fresh cut flowers, vanilla, lime, Razzles candy, biscuit, dry yeast, hints of caramel and lactose. It’s very fruity and I’ve never had lychee, but the hop flavors and addition of lychee makes this very complex, tropical tasting and zesty. The mouthfeel is very smooth, creamy even, with an average level of bitterness.

Poured from a 16 oz pounder an into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Hazed light golden pour with big fluffy white head. Great retention and lacing.

S: Grape and lychee mixed with citrus and vanilla.

T.F: Semi-sweet up front. Vanilla and fruit... white grape, lychee, and tangerine. Mild citrus and some vague tropical character. Creamy mouthfeel and medium bodied. More lychee and vanilla to finish.

O: An excellent milkshake IPA... right up Tired Hands alley. Fun that they found a way to toss some lychee in the mix.

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.

Super cloudy light yellow color. Beautiful lychee, vanilla, and citrus juicyness to the nose. The flavor follows the nose with a fruit nectar flavor and feel. A very unique and delicious beer.

16 oz. can. Very hazy pale yellow. Smells of diacetyl immediately. A little lychee and tropical fruit. Taste is again really strong on the diacetyl. Lychee and tropical fruit up front. Then a ton of milky lactose sweetness. Very creamy. Medium heavy. Well, I don't really like lactose, but the lactose actually works well. The diacetyl is the killer.

Poured from a can into a Tired Hands teku glass.

F: Thick mouthfeel and just a little bubbly.
O: Another awesome milkshake. These are so good, and this is no different.
