Intense aromas and flavors of coconut, mango, fresh fruit, and vanilla are balanced by a creamy, thick body and pleasant sweetness. There are some underlying tropical notes from hops to round everything out. A very complex beer that unfolds with layer upon layer with every sip as all the components work together."

Rusty Barrel x Stone Mango Maya Milkshake IPA
Stone Brewing: "In 2019, we partnered with the American Homebrewers Association (AHA) to host a people’s choice homebrew competition at our Richmond, Virginia brewing facility. The clear favorite and winner of the competition was a creamy, hoppy, tropical creation from Richmond native Rusty Burrell of Rusty Barrel Home Brewing. Over the years, these competitions (which we’ve hosted as far back as 2009) have resulted in some of the most unique and sought-after beers we’ve brewed – only thanks to the ingenuity of folks like Rusty. No matter which beer takes the prize, everyone wins when creative brewers get to share their passion with the people. And it all starts with one batch.
