Double Milkshake IPA - MangoDouble Milkshake IPA - Mango
Notes: Mango Double Milkshake IPA is the surprisingly elusive variation on our boundary-pushing Culinary IPA theme, originally dreamt up with our best buds over at @omnipollo. Brewed with a hefty amount of luscious oats, wheat and lactose sugar. Refermented with quite a bit of sweet n sticky mango purée, and conditioned atop around twice the amount of Madagascar vanilla beans used in our standard Milkshakes. Hopped and dry-hopped with the very choicest Mosaic and Citra from our selections out West. We’ve been wanting to reprise this variant for a long time and couldn’t be happier to finally see it return! Notes of cotton candy bubble gum, valencia orange juice, mango/vanilla gelati combo from John's, and dank greens.

Poured at 50°F from a pint can (canned on 13Jul16) into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Consumed on 02Aug16.
SMELL: A preposterous amount of mango aromas are supported by strong aromas of peaches, papayas, and apricots. Mild scents of white bread, oranges, tangerines, grapefruits, vanilla, and cream along with subtle pine and black pepper aromas supply a perfect balance.
5 out of 5
TASTE: An extreme gush of mangos immediately envelopes the taste buds. Strong flavors of peaches, apricots, and papayas expand the gargantuan fruitiness while mild flavors of white bread offer a balancing malt presence. The fruity profile continues to expand as strong flavors of orange, tangerine, and grapefruit flood the palate and mild flavors of black pepper, vanilla, and cream add a very unique aspect to this style. Mild flavors of pine and hints of bitterness bring further balance to the beer as all prior flavors persist, except for cream and black pepper, which both grow slightly stronger.
4.75 out of 5
NOTE: I have never had a beer with such an outrageous perception of mango in it. Not only was this the most mango forward brew that I have enjoyed, but there was a perfect balance from the malt, bitterness, lactose, and vanilla that ensured this simply was not a mango nuke to the palate. The sole characteristic of this beer that hindered it from being perfect to me was the black pepper. The amounts found in the smell were wonderful, but they dominated a bit too much in the taste.

Pours a viscous mango color with a little head but decent lacing, super hazy. Aromas of hop soaked over ripe juicy mango. Notes of sweet mango pulp all over, prickly tropical hops, dank and some underripe stone fruits. Medium toward full body, creamy, prickly bite, little dry on the finish, great linger and no hint at the abv. This is stunning, simply stunning that's all I can say.

Served out of a can into a wine tasting glass.

A: A deep, dark, almost opaque orange. Thin white head that lingers. Thick and juicy looking.
S: So much mango fruitiness on the nose.
T: Mangoes abound with a sharp bitter bite on the finish.
F: Full bodied that sits in the mouth really well.
O: So delicious and juicy. Not even super reminiscent of a milkshake but just an awesome juicy IPA.

Poured from a can into a tulip glass. The look is an opaque slightly darker yellow or gold, almost like a mix of mango and apricot juice. Vanilla dances in with the fruit on the aroma. The taste is strong, with fruit, booze, and floral hops harmonizing in a delicious balance. The mango and vanilla are prevalent, and the high abv and hops keep the sweetness in check. The mouthfeel is full bodies and creamy (or that could just be confirmation bias because of the "milkshake" name). A fantastic beer and my favorite of Tired Hands milkshake IPAs to date.

Received in a trade. Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice super milkshake orange hue with a fat head that fades to leave nice lacing and wisps.

S - Aromas of light mango, faint citrus, the mosaic is starting to really shine through. Very little lactose sugars.

T - Taste is nicely creamy, good lactose and vanilla, excellent. Good nice light tropical notes. Really solid with a light mango flavour, too light honestly.

M - Mouthfeel is creamy, nicely lactose heavy.

O - Overall this is a very solid lactose forward beer. Very well done!

Thanks to rudzud
Pours a nice fluffy foamy 1 finger head that fades at a med pace, nice lacing, murky milkshake thick tangerine orange color.

Nose big citrus tropical fruits, mango mostly green mango skin, plenty of rind, citrus tangerine, maybe some mild pine sap and onion thing, musty resin.

Taste brings plenty of vanilla lactose cream, creamy mango fluff, juicy mango, plenty of rind, some Nice mango and citrus tropical fruits, vanilla mango rind and orange cream thing, but still doesn't pop a much as the last one I had, fair to higher bitterness. Finish is sticky sweet, candy, rind, spicy hop lingering.

Mouth is creamy rich, no booze, lighter carb.

Overall Mixed, mango was good but not popping as well, vanilla lactose was better flavor wise but less nose.

L: Robust hazy golden and honeycomb hues with a frothy white head and insane lacing
S: Loads of french vanilla bean ice cream and freshly cut ripe mangoes
T: An orchestrated symphony of flavors. The initial rush is tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, and tangerines that is swiftly met by wave after wave of creamy vanilla and cake frosting. The sweet finish lingers on the tongue, but then a subtle jab of bitter hops reminds you that you're drinking an IPA and not an actual milkshake
F: Signature creamy and thick mouthfeel that TH has perfected in its milkshake series
O: For me this surpassed the Calamansi and Peach milkshakes (my two favorites so far). The flavors here just flat out work and combine effortlessly to recreate a decadent dessert in beer form. I can appreciate that this style of IPA may not be for everyone, but in the IPA zeigeist of the moment that applauds juicy IPAs this milkshake offshoot is carving out an incredibly tasty niche. To that end, Mango Double reigns king in my perspective - seek this one out and you won't be disappointed.
