In the Mount Pleasant series, R&B brewing has joined the Milkshake IPA craze with the Shake Your Fruity. This beer uses lactose for added body and pours from the bomber bottle as a lightly clouded, golden colour with two fingers of lacing head. The aroma is fruity with strong tropical tones of pineapple, mango and green apple. Tasting the beer it has a big body with creaminess to it. Tones of pineapple and apple come up front with a distinct sweetness and mellow bitterness that builds toward the finish. When you hear “milkshake” you may expect something very thick but this is more a fruit-forward, mellow IPA with a bit more body than is typical. Brewed using apple puree and lactose there is also an added sweetness and green apple flavour that is unique and quite tasty. This is a very enjoyable, new-age styled IPA.

Alcohol – 7.3%
IBU – 38
Size – 650ml

    I’m not sure how much body the lactose really adds but it does sure punch up the sweetness lost from the fruit during fermentation.
