Notes: To concoct Fountain Drink, we utilized the latest technology of adding fruit puree, vanilla bean, and milk sugar to an already boss IPA. We’re sliding this hazy, frothy fruit bomb across the proverbial drugstore counter, like it’s your destiny.

Poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a bright orange milky cloudy color. Mild dissipation left some lace from a little white semi-final head. Not much lace.
The aroma had some lemon strawberry creamy lactose/vanilla milkiness.
The flavor leaned towards the sweet side and barely had any sort of IPA bitterness. Some aftertaste of strawberry vanilla creaminess.
The mouthfeel was about medium to full bodied with some sessionability about it. Low carbonation felt fine. ABV felt appropriate. Finish was extremely creamy smooth.
Overall, milkshake IPA all of the way! No sense of American IPA whatsoever. Milkshake IPA's are sub-categories of New England styled ones. For me, I wouldn't have again because I'm not a fan of this style however, I won't rate this too low as I believe true fans of this style should seek this out.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Canned 02/19/19.

Golden pour with subtle pink hues that combine for a bright orange color.

Getting a lot of lemon on the nose combining with subtle but present strawberry aromas. Soft, sweet, milk sugar undertones.

Flavors similar to the nose, with lots of lemon and subtle strawberry. The lactose is holding up, with that milk sugar sweetness influencing well. Pretty close to nailing that strawberries and cream essence, but not much vanilla present.

Medium bodied, with a low but sharp carbonation and a soft, sticky mouth coating in the finish.

A: creamy, soapy, 2.5 finger head, hazy copper golden body, good retention and nice lacing.
S: Immediate strawberry and slight tartness, there is a sweetness coming through as well, this beer smells as described.
T: Right away this beer is strawberries and cream, it is sweet, fruity and milky, there is a very slight astringency that gives this beer a much needed balance, as the beer sits the vanilla and a heavier lactic creaminess come on strong.
M: Creamy and smooth, light carbonation carried in the thickness.
O: This is not my kind of beer, that being said, it achieves exactly what it is going for and does so with great success. It's not what I want when I reach for a beer, but it is fantastic for what it is, if this sounds like your bag, you will not be disappointed.

16 oz can, canned on 02/19/19.

Pours a hazy bright yellow color with one finger of bright white head. Strawberries, vanilla, fruity malts, citrus hops, cream, and lactose. Nose is better than the taste. medium body and super smooth body, low carbonation.

A very good beer; not super hoppy but delicious. Worth checking out if you like milkshake IPA's.

I’ve been a little wary of these fruited IPAs... Additions of vanilla beans and lactose made me more skeptical of how this would go. Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised by this beer, as it still tasted like an IPA! The strawberry is noticeable, but it’s presence is subdued - as is the vanilla character. Overall, a nice beer, even though it’s a touch dessert-like... I’d love to have it again.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

L: Hazy yellow color that is not muddy but not opaque, poured out to 2 and half fingers of head

S: Smell is grapefruit, tangerine, and orange with hints of vanilla and strawberry

T: Taste is a flavorburst of Orange, Tangerine, slight strawberry with tropical notes and hints of vanilla.

F: Has a medium body in the mouth that leaves a slight residue on the tongue that extends the flavor of strawberry and orange but dissipates after a second or two for the next sip you take.

O: One of the better juicy IPA's I've tasted hands down. This is a beer I will definitely go back to in the future as this is a fantastic beer.
