Double Neipa

Berries & Cream

Go back to the old school milk bar with a milky, hazy strawberry and cream hit. BYO straw.

Brewer’s notes:

Milkshake NEIPA with a huge hit of Strawberries n Cream. Sweet on palate. Big on haze. Lusciously full mouthfeel. Lactose brings extra creaminess to back pallet.

Review

Now, this is probably amongst the weirdest brews we’ve had. Still epic though. This is the “Berries & Cream” Double NEIPA from Sydney legends @stockadebrewco which was brewed as a super limited release @gabsfestival froth. On the nose, unsurprisingly this brew has big raspberry, creamy lactose and some stonefruit notes (apricot and peach). Smells like a strawberry tart. The palette is quite similar with rich berries (raspberry, strawberries and slight blueberries) and some vanilla and lactose. Not as much lactose on the palette compared to the nose. probably expected this be creamier. The brew then finishes big, dry and tart and not sweet as you might expect. Beware this little number is 8.6% (2.3 standards), ooft. 7.4/10.

Brewery: Stockade Brew Co Style: Double NEIPA ABV: 8.6% . Old school milk bar at its best. Creamy tropical goodness with a nice side of strawberries. Way too easy to drink, I was a bit like a teenager drinking a milkshake.

Berries & Cream Double NEIPA - 8.6% ABV - Worth the price? Yes - would be silly not to fork out a tenner for this - Would I drink it again? Yes - again, if you missed out on @gabsfestival you will have been fortunate enough to have some of the stronger brews canned and distributed to the masses. Released with The Mountie, @stockadebrewco have delivered two high quality limited release beers in close time to a total redesign of their can graphics on the core range. With limited “hazy” qualities, it would be better described as a Milkshake IPA, and a brilliant one at that. The palate follows the strong aromas of strawberries and gives you a huge hit of pithy deliciousness, before working into the smooth and creamy lactose contribution which only puts the sweetness over the top. On tap, I remember this having a bit more bitterness to combat the left, right goodnight Mike Tyson sweetness, but either way, I think this is a really enjoyable IPA - Would you take it to a friend's for a session beer? No - what is this, amateur hour? 8.6% could get you well toasted though to be fair - Would your dad drink it over his regular brew? No - “not as outrageous as some of the others you’ve showed me... still sickly though”
