A milkshake IPA containing lactose, Puppy Love is a limited edition Valentine's Day beer from BrewDog.
It's a hazy deep yellow colour with a small, loose, rapidly vanishing off-white head. Once the head has gone, it looks like a glass of orange squash. It has the most amazing aroma of fresh, juicy raspberries with a hint of zesty citrus.
The flavour is quite light and it's very refreshing. It's citrussy but there's no bitter pithiness at all, there's a definite hit of sweet not tarty raspberries and there's also a slight hint of tropical fruit that's almost perfumy like lychee. Lactose gives an overall creaminess to the taste. The body is thin and ever so slightly watery with low, firm carbonation.
With a lower than usual ABV for an IPA of 4.7%, it's very easy to drink and I really enjoyed it. It's limited edition for 2022 but I hope it's brewed again next year. Ale Be Seeing You again!
