A Note on This Beer
There was nothing better than strawberry milk day at school. No one would warn you, but when you saw the pink lettering peeking through the sea of boring blue 2%, it was time to start throwing some elbows to lay claim to your carton.
A rush of that same adrenaline-fueled giddiness came roaring back when I saw that 4 Noses was re-releasing their Strawberry Velvet Milkshake IPA — I can’t help it, that creamy, strawberry milk lust runs deep!
The brewers loaded this Milkshake IPA with tart and rich strawberry purée, real vanilla beans, creamy lactose, AND a heavy dose of dry-hopping for a balanced, hop-forward dank pine finish. It’s like the strawberry milk of my childhood dreams, but with all the grown-up hoppiness and 6.5% ABV I love in an IPA.
Other craft fans who’ve tried it can’t help but start conjuring up other strawberry dessert delights:
- @Lacey A. says it’s classic ice cream and fruit: “Tastes just like a strawberry milkshake! Strawberry and vanilla ice cream!”
- @Alvin L. thinks it’s even richer: “Smells like a fruity sweet strawberry cheesecake!
- @Mark H. calls it straight-up “Strawberry pie.”
Whatever your strawberry dessert tastes, all the creamy, hoppy, strawberry goodness in this Milkshake might just make you start acting like a kid again. Just make sure to keep your ID with you out on the playground — you might need it when it’s time to get a few more cans!
*4 Noses is a GABF medalist, and PorchDrinking.com calls it “one of Colorado’s best rising breweries!”

Tasted like strawberries
I think the one star review on here is unjust. I don’t think this is a 5 star beer personally, but it’s rated much lower than it actually is. This is not a 1 star beer, at all. This is a great milkshake IPA. Crushable, just the right amount of thick, slight strawberry flavor. Really pleasant, really drinkable.
Typically, an IPA would receive 1 star from me; I personally don’t like IPAs. But this one isn’t too hoppy, it does have a little hop but it isn’t overpowering. I would have definitely liked to taste more strawberry, though. Overall, it’s drinkable, and as I said, I can’t drink IPAs at all.
Like strawberry ice cream scooped into a smooth ipa. Awesome!
A strawberry came up and punched me in the tastebuds.
This was a surprisingly amazing strawberry infused IPA, the great lasting taste of strawberry on the back end is amazing!
Lots of strawberry notes on the nose, but would’ve liked a stronger flavor overall.
Like drinking a strawberry shortcake with the right amount of sweetness
Very solid, good strawberry flavor and just thick enough.
tart strawberry start with cream finish
Tastes like strawberry milk
Sweet and smooth, with an excellent authentic strawberry taste and a truly velvety mouthfeel
Phenomenal milkshake IPA. Not like a sour which is good, you can taste the lactose. Get this for your girlfriend who says she doesn’t like beer
Had this on tap when on vacation in Colorado and WOW
Nice mouthfeel. Strong strawberry flavor. One of the better milkshake IPAs.
I love this beer !!!
Soda pop candy strawberry
Hate Milkshake Ipas so much
Amazing strawberry taste - super refreshing
Great milkshake IPA just a little more body would have put it at a 5. Sweet delicious strawberrry and fresh hops, hard to go wrong!
This is very interesting it's legit like eating a hop with a very juicy tasty strawberry
Smooth, tasty, refreshing
Unreal strawberry taste. Was hoping for a little more body. Worth a try for those non-beer drinkers.
Smooth and sweet
Not exactly what I expected but still pretty tasty. I expected a thicker, creamier sort of beer, but it still came dressed to impress.
Very sweet, tastes like a fresh strawberry smoothie!
Love a good Milkshake IPA. This one is delicious. Smooth sweet and creamy while also packing a nice punch!
The perfect amount of velvety flavor so it’s not too sweet, perfect for slow sipping!
You can smell the strawberries! Sweet start with a smooth vanilla like finish.
Wasn’t sure what to expect - strawberries on the nose, sweet strawberry and vanilla initially with a mild hoppy finish and slight dankness. Not sure if it is good or not my taste.
Can get the IPA Smell but none of the aftertaste I usually get with an IPA. not too sweet but can taste the strawberry. Really like this one.
Just the right amount of strawberry/vanilla aftertaste. Very drinkable.
Loved this beer thought i wasn’t gonna like it!
More juice than beer
I was expecting more of a creamy milkshake profile, but instead it’s more of a watery milkshake :/
It was ok. Strawberry is hard to pull off, but when it works, it really works. This one didnt work for me
tastes more like a typical sour that a milkshake.
Smooth and good flavor
Got big strawberry aroma the moment I opened the can. There's some nesquik nostalgia vibes here, but all grown up
Liquid strawberry shake
Best of the beers I’ve gotten from Tavour. My only regret is that I didn’t get max cans a loud.
Super tasty and the strawberry hits. Sips nice, and smooth
Wasn't sure if strawberry would work well in an IPA, but damn does it ever. Impressed that the hop notes still come through with the sweetness.
Easy drinking, balanced sweetness
Tasted more hop then strawberry.
So smooth and love the fruitiness. Not normally a fan of milkshake IPAs but this was delightful.
Too sweet but it’s got some nice flavor
Strong strawberry flavor for an IPA.
Balanced, strawberry forward, light mouthfeel.
Liked this one. Tastes like a strawberry milkshake without being too sweet.
Strikes a great balance between sweet gimmicky taste, while still tasting like a nice, standard hoppy IPA. It can fit whichever role you want from it - sweet treat beer or standard IPA with a sweet twist. You can’t just have one at a time!
Delicious simple delicious
Bought it to try it out with a bunch of different others it’s a great beer I just went in the Fruited Sour direction.
Just recently been getting into IPA Milkshake style and this one is the best I have ever had
Really delicious milkshake IPA!!! I love it when the fruited sour style beers get hops or vice versa. Easy drinking not too heavy... crushable.
So good! Just right amount of flavor and a bit of hops to add at the end. Loved it
Name hit the nail on the head! Great strawberry flavour. With the velvety milkshake experience.
Smooth. Very drinkable and not too sweet but nothing to call home about.
Wish the flavor was a bit more prominent but is it very drinkable.
