My rating: 3
My rating: 3.87
My rating: 3.7

Intro: A 1 pint can, canned on 5th July 2022. Poured into a winebar glass.
Appearance: A hazy murky orange pinkish colour with a one finger dark orange head that dissipated fairly quickly, while leaving sparse to no lacing.
Aroma: Guava, coconut, papaya, orange, with some cream soda notes.
Taste: Sweet, tropical fruit forward, coconut, guava, pineapple, orange, vanilla, and some booze.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium bodied, with soft carbonation.
Overall: The aroma was nice and I would love to see guava in beer more. But perhaps the combination of the sweet, richness and some booze, did not make it entirely easy drinking.

Brewery: Omnipollo x Monkish Brewing Co.
Country: Sweden

Brewer Description: (from can) This collaboration between Omnipollo and Monkish (CA) was first brewed back in 2018. The idea was to make a dank and pungent Double IPA with graham crackers. A 4:20 snack. Enthusiastically crafted at our church brewery on Sturegatan 41 in Sundbyberg, Sweden.

Aroma: Fruity, pineapple, orange, citrus zest, pine, grass, with light mango notes.
Taste: Slightly sweet, strong citrus beginning, mandarin, orange zest, citrus rind, light tropical pineapple, mango, grass, pine, and a lasting moderately bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium bodied with moderate to soft carbonation.
Overall: It drinks easy with nice citrus and tropical fruit aroma and flavours, while there is also a nice sweet and bitter balance.

My rating: 4.1

Intro: A 330ml can, with a best before date of 8th April 2020. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A cloudy slightly murky dark orange colour with an almost two finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly and left only sparse lacing.
Aroma: Vanilla, lactose, pavlova, strawberry, with hints of tart tropical fruits.
Taste: Light tartness, mixed tropical fruits, strawberry, pineapple, passion fruit, moderately sweet, vanilla and lactose.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Nice fruity and juicy flavours balanced with the sweetness of vanilla and lactose. I actually think I prefer version 1 (which had kiwi added) a bit more as it was more pavlova like, but this was still an enjoyable Milkshake Double IPA.
