Secret Handshake - Mango Lassi
Drekker Brewing Company
A Note on This Beer
If you’re a Milkshake mogul like me, then you crave an IPA with a little more oomph!
Simple hop juice just won’t cut it — we need a brew with a little more meat on its bones! I’m talkin’ thicker, creamier, and packed with more fruity-hoppy flavor than plain old hopbombs and hazies!
Luckily for people like us, the US Open Beer Champs at North Dakota’s Drekker Brewing know what we need. And you are seriously gonna flip your lid once you get a taste of the ultra-thick, tropical flavors in today’s Secret Handshake - Mango Lassi Milkshake IPA.
Drekker crafted this brew to be thicker-than-the-dickens and jam-packed with so much tropical citrus juice, it’s unreal. Secret Handshake - Mango Lassi has to be one of the best Milkshake IPAs I’ve tasted, and I’ve tasted A LOT.
To craft this densely sweet treat, the brewers took inspiration from the traditional yogurt-thick Indian Lassis. First, they amped up the fruitiness by dry hopping with orangey Citra and tropical Mosaic Hops. Then, they took these hop-powered fruit flavors to a new, juicy level by mixing puckering apricots, tangy passionfruit, and heaps of drippy mango with creamy lactose.
And it doesn’t stop there! They finished everything off by taking Mango Lassi on a ride through the market streets of New Delhi with sprinkles of pistachios and a trio of spices: cinnamon, cardamom, and sweet vanilla beans.
If you’re as serious as I am about the creamy goodness of Milkshake IPAs, you gotta get down with Mango Lassi. With all that spicy-sweet flavor swimming on a thick-as-hell mouthfeel and smooth-sippin’ 7.5% ABV, it’s one for the books.
But outside of North Dakota, you can’t find this thick brew anywhere!
Fill the Milkshake IPA-sized hole in your chest with the creamy sweetness of Mango Lassi, and you’ll get the oomph! you need. And if you “forget” to tell your other Milkshake-lovin’ friends about it, I promise I won’t tell. Your secret is safe with me!
