Vape Shop IPA (ABC brewing)

Hope you’ve all been enjoying the incredible run of weather we’ve been having as much as we have. On this particular hot day, I grabbed a can of Vape Shop Strawberry Cheesecake IPA by ABC Brewing and from what I understand, this IPA was part of a limited run so I should have maybe saved it for a rainy day – D’oh!

Anyway, let’s get right to the heart of this thing, shall we? The can gets lashed open without a single shred of mercy and I tear into it for a sip. It’s gorgeous, simply put, it’s so creamy and there’s a real milkshake vibe off this and in a really pleasant way, the texture really screams ‘dessert beer’ at you. I guess with it being a Strawberry Cheesecake flavoured IPA, that’s to be expected but I didn’t expect it to be as close to a boozy milkshake as you’ll get. Is this what the five dolla shake from Pulp Fiction was? And if this is what they were drinking, I can see why they loved it so much.

As you can see from the photo, it’s a wee 330ml boi and it rounds out at a 5.6% ABV which seems pretty high for a beer as sweet tasting as this. Quite frankly, I’d really struggle to say anything bad about this brew, other than I find it hard to not just knock the whole thing back as I’m an absolute fiend when it comes to the sweeties. I’d definitely recommend picking up one or 2 of these along with your next round of tasty tins. This tin in particular came from the Vineyard off license on the Ormeau road, home to loads of cans, just crying out to become your next favourite beer.

I’d give this a solid 4 out of 5 sweet teeth.
