A: The beer is cloudy dark amber yellow in color. It poured with a short white head that faded away, leaving only a thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass and some lacing down the sides.
S: Light aromas of vanilla and orange peel are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, having stronger flavors of orange peel and notes of vanilla, the latter of which is most noticeable towards the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and slightly smooth and creamy on the palate with a low amount of carbonation.
O: This beer tastes a little like a milkshake with its smoothness and creaminess but seems like it could use stronger aromas and flavors of the orange peel and vanilla.

Tried the Lime version on tap. Beautiful color, golden and slightly hazy, creamy white head. Smells amazing! Lime juice and zest, sweet cream and vanilla. Tastes just like a lime creamsicle, sweet, sour, creamy, tart everything you love about the ice cream treat in a glass! Have had other versions as well, but the lime has been the most enjoyable yet. This is one of the best examples of a lactose ive had.

So this is a different style milkshake ipa. It contains lactose so it should be more smooth going down? Anyway pours nice thick yellowish with a tint of green. Nose is a little floral with some orange and lime peel. Taste up front is a little splash of orange with increasing sweet tangerine as the sip progresses. Sweet pineapple and mango with orange and apricot follow fading into dry non bitter finish. Flavors move Very quickly and nothing really seems to have a chance to shine. No lingering flavors leave me wanting another sip but i like my ipa's to have some afterbite. Super smooth and thick and overall an interesting beer. Pretty good but would have liked the flavors to have been more pronounced and lasting.
