Heavy Seas Beer (Baltimore, Maryland) has officially announced that it will begin the Taproom Exclusive Release of Scoops, a Chocolate Vanilla Twist Milkshake IPA, on August 16.
Crafted to be an “indulgent twist” on the India Pale Ale, Scoops is a Milkshake-style IPA brewed with “loads of chocolate and vanilla for decadence and sweetness, and lactose for a rich & creamy finish.” Weighing in at just 5.5% ABV and 40 IBUs, the “surprisingly drinkable” Scoops is “an IPA lover’s dessert dream come true.”
“A rich, decadent Chocolate Vanilla Twist Milkshake IPA, this beer was brewed with imported English Maris Otter, Chocolate, Black, and Crystal malts along with a hefty portion of flaked oats,” says Heavy Seas Brewmaster, Christopher Leonard. “Almost 10 lbs per barrel of milk sugar (lactose), more than a pound per barrel of imported cocoa nibs, and just the right amount (which is A LOT) of vanilla blend to make this brew silky smooth deliciousness. Oh, and don’t forget the IPA part. We used only English hops to provide a unique earthy dry finish to balance the luscious flavors and make this beer surprisingly drinkable.”
Scoops Chocolate Vanilla Twist Milkshake IPA will debut in the Heavy Seas Taproom on Friday, August 16. This Taproom Exclusive offering will be available for purchase in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans and on draft. Scoops will not see distribution. Prost!
