What is a Milkshake IPA ?
Milkshake IPA are a combination of milk sugar and fruit. It’s a new beer category that could be compared to Hazy IPA with lactose (unfermentable milk sugar).
The association of fruit and lactose gives this beer style a smooth, delightful mouthfeel, similar to the sensation you’d expect in a smoothie or a milkshake.
The silky and creamy texture comes mainly from the fruit but is helped by using milk sugar and large amount of hop. The addition of fruit can also inject tartness, tropical flavor, or candied sweetness into a beer.
