This was the first milkshake IPA I've had that I really loved. This beer got me into checking out more 4 Noses beers, and the more I try, the more I love. I was taken aback when I tried this at a bar in Denver and I needed to buy some for the home the next day. Perfect level of pineapple flavor with the lactose giving it a deep rich but not too sweet balance. Dang. I hadn't been impressed by any milkshake IPAs before trying this, but now I want to check more out in hopes they're as great as the Pineapple Velvet.

Excellent brew, smells like pineapple juice, which carries through into the taste, but not in an overwhelming way. The balance of pineapple, vanilla, and hops is really nice, nothing carrying through in a particularly overwhelming way. Sweet onset with a classic hoppy, bitter finish. Very hazy look. I was initially intimidated by the milkshake, pineapple, vanilla label, but honestly, it's just a great, smooth IPA. Considering all the flavors, this beer is restrained in the best sense.

milkshake ipa with vanilla and pineapple. why does everyone have to make one of these nowadays? where did this trend come from? who is buying these? it is so hard for me to rightly call this an ipa, its a desserty mess, but its not real hoppy to me, sure a new school juicy dry hopped thing, but its sweet like crazy from all the pineapple, natural enough, and a ton of vanilla and lactose, who is asking for these? i dont so much dislike this beer specifically as i am now just fed up with the style. the pineapple and vanilla actually go together pretty well, and despite it being sort of candied, the flavors are pretty good together, just dont call it an ipa. hops have some citrus which gives it a tropical vibe with the pineapple, the malt base feels heavy and the lactose is overdone a bit, its starchy and messy and sweet, and although the vanilla is real and flavorful here, it also seems too high in the mix. i get this as a novelty, even a well done one, but who can drink more than one maybe two of these? better than many, lots and lots of pineapple and vanilla. so trendy to me that its annoying. i roll my eyes as i take another sip...
