a shakeable can? i had to buy this when i saw it! pretty cool way to activate the nitrogen, and i always like these random stillwater collaborations so why not?! i shake the snot out of this can before i open it, and it pops and spits a little bit when i crack it, but it doesnt go everywhere. i pour aggressively and get an inch of beer and 4 inches of slowly cascading nitro cream, finally settling to about an inch on the top, when all is said and done its as pretty and rich as any draft nitro pour out there, and i am convinced this method is the real deal. that said, im not immediately attracted to the beer they chose to do this with, its super thick, murky, and kind of sloppy looking, something simpler may have suited the nitro can better, but nevertheless i dig in. i get mango in the nose for sure, and its desserty and sweet although im not sure i know its vanilla right away, too much obvious hop bitterness for that, but its grainy too which i like. the flavor is good, i like how its intensely hoppy, even with new school varietals, there is enough there to cut through the fruit and the sweet. i get this trying to be milkshakey or whipped creamy or whatever, but i could do without the lactose and vanilla, mango and hops would be enough i reckon. the beer is almost leaden in texture, seriously weighty to the max, smooth and creamy as can be from the nitro for sure, that part really works, but its like drinking rubber cement, almost not even liquid, and the sugar seems to be largely responsible for that. not overly mango but tropical for sure with the hops, green and vegetal and on the edge of overdone at the end on the hop side, but pleasing to me. its a little raw, but its surely original. i hope they do like an english brown ale or something with this nitro shake can next time, not some gimmick dessert ipa, it would take a style like that to the next level...

The look alone gives off a tropical vibe. It's a mango flesh orange with peachy yellow highlights. A very dense, tightly knit white head holds like glue.

A hefty dose of marshmallow and vanilla gives it some goosh. Lots of deep, ripe mango and peach juice. Pineapple adds some tang. It's a very inviting and soothing tropical drank.

Toasted marshmallow with vanilla and graham cracker act as the base. A peach and pineapple twang on the back end pulls the sweetness towards the fruity hoppy light. The cream extends into the green, resiny bitterness that glides past the finish. Mango is the dominant fruit that's stacked on top.

Creamy? Definitely, but not luscious. The green, leafy bitterness and acidic tropical fruit twang pulls the feel in its favor. There's a good balance struck between the lacto driven sweetness and the fruit forward hop character.

The nitro adds to the look more so than anything else. The rich, creamy texture of a milkshake IPA is still very much there, but not a whole lot different. It does smooth out the bitterness and give its fruitiness some puff.

A pretty fun beer right here. Nice gentle shake, and a hard inverted pour into a pint glass. Starts off with the signature milky froth, and transforms into a great looking NE DIPA. A true milkshake style beer. Silky, creamy mouthfeel, and the hop aroma/flavor is on point. I'm picking up some heavy mosaic, some citra and maybe Hallertau blanc as well? Whatever hops were used I really enjoyed this, and it's dangerously smooth for 8% abv.

From a can with 1970's era retro styling, this brew is interesting and very tasty. The beer is cream-colored brew, a milky-egg colored liquid with a thick white head. The aroma has citrus and vanilla...orange peel and light sweetness. I didn't get the mango at first, but it does come out as the beer warms. Balanced, slight warming and a bit of spicy hops in the finish. Full in body and very creamy. Nice.

Pours a bright orange that is opaque. Head formation is just a few fingernails in thickness, but the can wasn't shaken much. Head is white and retains fairly well with no lacing left behind. Aroma is orange, lemon zest, and biscuit malts. The citrus notes are deep, but focus solely on orange. Flavor profile is orange, lemon zest, vanilla, a little yeasty flour, wildflower, and biscuit malts. Mouth feel is smooth, with a fine graininess. It has a medium thickness. Overall, a fair NEIPA. It has a floury, yeasty taste which is a little off, but the citrus notes are nice. Shaking the can seems like a strange idea, but it crucial for good head formation.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 16oz can.

Collaboration with Stillwater Artisanal.

Nitro Double India Pale Ale With Mango, Vanilla, and Lactose

Poured as directed from can:
1.) Gently shake the can to activate nitrogen.
2.) Open then invert can over your glass and pour hard.


A Guinness-like creamy white head over a Double IPA?!?!?
Extremely hazy body with some lacing.
Head is creamy and apparent to the bottom of the glass!

Nose of candied citrus (orange, lemon, and lime.)
Straight orange juice on the nose as well.

Taste of orange, tangerine, tangelo, and orange pith on the finish with its
requisite bitterness.

Good feel (at first and then just okay afterwards.)

Overall, way better than I was expecting and glad for the opportunity.

Thanks to Ryan T. for the hookup.

Oh, print on bottom of can:
