Russell Brewing Company Papaya Milkshake IPA American IPA at 6.5% ABV | 30 IBU (C$4.23 at Collective, 473 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 17-Nov-2018, reviewed 2-Dec-2018)

Appearance: opaque medium gold with two fingers of rocky off-white head, excellent retention and moderate soapy lacing. (5/5) Aroma: overripe tropical fruit, lactose, citrus, caramel. (6/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate bitter. (6/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, medium duration moderate bitter finish. (3/5)

A bit of a train wreck of an adjunct beer, all bruised fruit and heavy-handed sweetness. Nowhere near as good as their Mango Milkshake (which, to be honest, wasn’t all that hot). (13/20)

6.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
