About Malt Shop IPA

from McMenamins on the Columbia Brewery
Grab a pint of this dessert in a glass. Lactose and Maltodextrin come together to create the mouthfeel of a malted milkshake and they both add a sweet, full flavor. The cocoa and cherries are blended to perfection with the addition of hops, creating a fruity, hoppy shake. While you're sitting at the bar listening to oldies, you'll feel like you've been transported to the local Malt Shop. Enjoy the time hop!

About Tropical Storm IPA

from McMenamins on the Columbia Brewery
This Milkshake IPA is super hazy and cloudy with a golden yellow glow. The winds of the storm swirl the pineapple and guava together to create a fruity flavor. Fruity hop aromas from the Zythos gust up out of the glass while keeping the bitterness mild. Rolled Oats and Lactose blend together to make a full mouthfeel while keeping you grounded. Hunker down and ride out the storm. Cheers!

About Good Guava IPA

from Thompson Brewery
Here's a new trend in the IPA world! Now don't stop reading and turn your nose up at the idea. Let's get a few questions out of the way first. Do you like citrus fruit? Do you enjoy less bitter beers? Good Guava IPA might just be your new favorite! It's packed full of Zythos Hops, which bring forth great citrus flavors and with a low IBU, this IPA has stepped away from the traditionally high bittered days. Guava and lactose give this hazy brew a smooth body and an added boost of fruit flavor. The end result is a juicy, fruity, hop packed beer. Take a taste!

Special Ingredients: Lactose
Fruit: Guava
Malts: Superior Pilsen, Unmalted Wheat, Rolled Oats
Hops: Chinook, Mosaic, Zythos
OG: 1.058 TG: 1.014 ABV: 5.68 IBU: 9 SRM: 5

About Pineapple Smoothie IPA

from Cornelius Pass Roadhouse Brewery
This super hazy IPA is opaque and blonde in the glass with hints of pineapple and flower blossoms on the nose. A more mellow bitterness makes this New England-style IPA approachable, while big, fruity flavor and a refreshing finish make it easy to come back to.
Special Ingredients: Imperial Juice Yeast, Lactose
Fruit: Pineapple Puree
Malts: Unmalted Wheat, Rolled Oats, Pilsen

OG: 1.056 TG: 1.014 ABV: 5.42 IBU: 32 SRM: 2

About Izard of POG IPA

from Oak Hills Brewery
As a constantly emergent style, New England IPAs only utilize hops that impart a tropical, juicy sweetness rather than the classic bitter, dank or citrusy flavors that can come from bittering hops. These hazy brews maintain a creaminess all their own. Our New England IPA is infused with POG: passion fruit, blood orange and guava. Pog was originally invented by Mary Soon in Maui in 1971 and its original mascot was the "Izard of Pog," a medieval looking gnome with a magic wand and stars around its head. Enjoy this juicy, tropical POG IPA and give a salute to the Izard.
