Milkshake Mud Island Ale|
Inspired by “Love Vibration” Ann Peebles
A Milkshake IPA is a sub category of the New England IPA made with lactose to create a creamy beverage, reminiscent of our favorite childhood indulgent treat! Love Vibration, a variation of our Mud Island Ale, is a dark version of a Milkshake IPA, using darker malts to create a sensual chocolate aroma, vanilla beans and the added lactose gives this ale flavors of cookies & cream ice cream. Our hop blend creates the flavors of chocolate covered strawberries and dark stone fruits which lingers on the palate. Stop playing cool, and don’t let this love vibration pass you by.
Food Pairings: Black & Blue Salad • Merlot BellaVitano • Maple Bacon Donut
