  • From a can with date of 05/01/2020. Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe.

    Pours with cloudy but there is some light penetrating the liquid. Beautiful white foam covers that froths as it recedes, leaving spotty, thick lacing in its wake.

    Aroma is big up front. Sweet mango and strawberries. Very Sweet. Extremely sweet. Don't get the vanilla. Slightly dank.

    Taste is more of the same. Lots of sweet strawberry and mango throughout. Hints of bitterness, mango, strawberry and sweetness linger.

    Medium body that is trying to be creamy. Medium carbonation. Dry after a burst of sweet energy.

    I would have the beer again but limited as the sweetness just wrecks the palate. Too much sweetness. Did I say this has sweetness. I need to stay away from milkshake IPAs. Enjoy!

Beer Notes
  • Named for the current state of affairs and all the great Americans and the world coming together during this hard time! .
    Our new Maltshake (think milkshake, but without lactose) was brewed with Citra, Nelson Sauvin and Mosaic hops which give this brew a fruity and punchy aroma. Then we fermented on strawberry purée and Madagascar bourbon vanilla beans. So we are delivering on the fruity aroma and delicious vanilla flavors here. This, all in good balance with sweetness from monk fruit sugar.
