Say "hello" to Dry Dock's Pineapple Milkshake IPA!
We live in a world where sparkling water is spiked, pickle splits are a thing, and beer – well, that's a world of endless eccentricity. So when Dry Drock Brewing in Aurora asked us to try the 6.3 percent ABV Pineapple Milkshake IPA, we were excited to give the tropical suds a swig.
Upon pouring the beer, one thing is clear: it's anything but that, and that's exactly what you want. If it didn't have a nice frothy head, I'd say the IPA could easily pass for juice, meaning you can pass on the mimosas (or 'man-mosas,' for that matter), and just go with the Pineapple Milkshake IPA.
Then you can establish your status as the classy, complex, fun-loving brunch-fiend that you truly are – or not.
At least tell your friends that unlike the mimosa, the Pineapple Milkshake IPA – thanks to pineapple puree, lactose (milk sugar) Moasic, and Citra hops – has a big pineapple nose, followed by citrus undertones and finishes smooth and creamy with a subtle vanilla note.
To that, we say "Mahalo." Oh, and be careful because these bottled helpings of paradise go down easy!
The brewery says that the beer will only be available seasonally (summer) and to celebrate, they're hosting a kick-off Luau on Saturday, May 11, featuring Hawaiian food from the 808 Fusion Grindz food truck at the South Dock location. Of course, if you're closer to the North Dock taproom, the beer will be available there, too – albeit, no Luau.
Lastly, if you're the type who likes to enjoy things from the comfort of your own back-yard-beach, it'll start trickling into liquor and grocery stores around May 13 where it can be had in both six-packs and kegs.
