A milkshake IPA, and the similar smoothie IPA, are sub-styles of the New England-style IPA. Milkshake and smoothie beers pump up the volume on fruit additions, unfermentable sugars, and adjuncts such as vanilla. This creates a creamy, full-bodied texture and bold opacity that’s akin to what you slurp at a malt shop. The main ingredient that sets milkshake IPAs apart from other juicy and hazy IPAs is lactose.
