Shapeshifter Brewing Creatures From Above

Oat Cream Double IPA

Join Shapeshifter as they don tinfoil hats and join the conspiracy theorists with Creatures From Above, an 8.5 percent ABV oat cream double IPA. Now, we all know conspiracies are dumb. Personally, I am a sceptic – yes, you know me; it doesn’t keep me up all night long. I’m not like you guys, Twelve Majestic Lies.

If that reads like gobbledigook, or a message in code, I can explain. Creatures From Above is a reference to 90s track Aliens Exist by Blink 182. As for the ingredients, the Shapeshifter team has gone all incognito on us. This isn't necessarily a reference to the hop product: they're keeping the recipe close to their chests. What we do know is that this is classic Shapeshifter.

Clean, extra juicy hop characters transcend, serving up a tropical fruit bowl, joined in its excess with a milky sweetness. There's a whack of pulpy papaya, some passionfruit, a touch of pine and resin and even a little citrus. You'll find a hint of bitterness lurking in the background but it's muted by everything else coming at you from above.
