Product Details

The Milkshake IPA is a tasty variant of a Hazy New England IPA style, with an added bonus: an extensive amount of non-traditional ingredients that create sensations reminiscent of your childhood diner's milkshake. This recipe kit has an amazing depth of flavor: coconut and vanilla, added during fermentation, and tropical notes of pineapple, peach, mango, and passionfruit, driven by Galaxy and Mosaic hops coupled with a unique yeast strain. To wrap it all together, lactose, added straight to the boil, produces creaminess and subtle dairy-like sweetness. Some of these ingredients are in tight supply, so try it out today.

DISCLAIMER: Northern Brewer is not liable for any intense daydreams of crystal-clear waves and sand in your toes that may result from pouring a pint of Hula Hop’d Coconut Milkshake IPA. This beer is truly a vacation in a glass.

Brad’s Notes:

These days, New England IPAs are all the rage and it is only natural that creative brewers have adapted this new style to include a variant of its very own - The Milkshake IPA. Attributed to a Swedish brewery, Milkshake IPAs have gained popularity in the US at a staggering rate and show no signs of slowing. This recipe is defined by the use of lactose in the boil, low bitterness, massive hop flavor, and fermentor additions meant to simulate flavors of the classic milkshake.

Hula Hop’d Coconut Milkshake IPA is our rendition on this emerging variant. Utilizing lactose and vanilla gives this recipe its signature mouthfeel and flavor, while large late and post-boil hop additions provide prominent tropical fruit flavors of mango and passion fruit. The unique yeast paired with this recipe serves to provide even more fruit flavors of pineapple and peach, while leaving a significant haze, another hallmark of this style.

Towards the end of fermentation, yet more Mosaic and Galaxy are added along with coconut to round out the intricately complex flavor profile. There is a lot going on in this beer and it may seem like an odd mix of ingredients, but the result is anything but odd - it’s truly delicious and some have said that it reminds them of a pina colada. Do you like getting caught in the rain?

Best beer so far!!

I have been brewing for a little over two years and this is probabably the best beer I have ever made. I was worried that it would be too sweet for my husband but he LOVES IT!! The coconut isn’t overpowering by any means, in fact I have people who have tried it that don’t even notice it at all. I just kegged it and already know it won’t last long!

The ONLY thing I would change is to add either more hops or add them in to the boil sooner. The beer is smooth enough to handle a little more bitterness, I will probably add another ounce or two next time I make this. That being said I would 100% buy this again, this is hands-down the best beer from a kit I have ever made!

I’ll say it’s unique. I love milkshake IPAs but this is a bit different. I can’t tell if I love or hate the coconut mixed with the IPA flavors

I just ordered another kit because the first was so good. The flavors are subtle and they all work together perfectly.
