Milkshake IPA gone big. Pontoon Brewing Triple The Floor is Lava is a boozy follow-up to last year’s popular release.
The Floor is Lava, a milkshake IPA brewed with guava, strawberries, kiwi, and lactose, debuted last summer. The creamy IPA was big on fruit as well as fruity hops.
For the brewery’s anniversary party this week, Pontoon took the original recipe and “imperialized” the base IPA and doubled
tripled the amount of fruit, creating Triple The Floor is Lava.
Pontoon Triple The Floor is Lava is available at the brewery in Sandy Springs, Georgia in 16-ounce cans.
11.8% ABV, 55 IBUs
If you expected styles like the “milkshake IPA” to die off in 2019, you might think again. Full Sail Malted Milkshake Style IPA is hitting the market.
The India pale ale went from clear to hazy (New England Style IPA). Then from hazy to lactose and fruit heavy (milkshake IPA). Oregon’s Full Sail has been experimenting with milkshake style and has settled on a recipe to ship nationally. The brewery has dubbed it the Malted Milkshake Style IPA, brewed with oats, wheat and lactose milk sugar.
“With Malted Milkshake, we really nailed it. It’s unfiltered, not bitter, and there’s tons of aroma packed into a full-bodied, creamy IPA.” – Full Sail Brewmaster Greg Doss
Full Sail Malted Milkshake Style IPA is now available in 12-ounce bottles and draft for a limited time.
6.8% ABV, 40 IBUs
Another milkshake IPA is inbound in Atlanta. Monday Night Piranha Dealer debuts on September 14th.
A-Town’s Monday loving brewery has established a “milkshake” India pale ale base with rolled oats, torrified wheat, acidulated malt, honey, and of course – lactose milk sugar. A milkshake IPA is no milkshake IPA without a blast of fruit and vanilla. For this release, strawberries are the star.
Pre-sales of Monday Night Piranha Dealer have closed. 16-ounce cans will be available at the brewery’s “Hop Hut” on Trabert Avenue on September 14th.
Availability: 16oz Cans. Draft. Limited Release.
Monday Night Slow Churn Milkshake IPA debuts on June 22nd.
Earlier this spring, Monday Night Brewing debuted a hop-focused series (and taproom bar) at the brewery’s Trabert Street location. Coming near the end of the month is Slow Churn, a milkshake IPA.
Milkshake IPAs are as hot as the hazy ones right now, brewed with lactose milk sugar, and sometimes vanilla beans or fruit. In the case of Slow Churn, simply expect this release to be “juicy, tropical, & chewy”.
Milkshakes may bring all the boys to the yard, but Slow Churn does that for everyone. A milkshake IPA, this creamy, sweet brew is a perfect complement to summer.
Monday Night Slow Churn Milkshake IPA will be available at the brewery in 12-ounce cans and draft starting June 22nd.
Odell Cloud Catcher Milkshake IPA is set to debut later this summer.
The currently unofficial style of beer known as the “milkshake India pale ale” is basically a hazy IPA plus lactose, a milk sugar. Most milkshakes have vanilla beans and fruit also added.
Fort Collins, Colorado based Odell Brewing is slated to release Cloud Catcher Milkshake IPA this August. The hop forward, smooth IPA is purported to feature flavors of “creamsicle and peach”, although the label artwork doesn’t mention the addition of any fruit.
Our fabled Odell Cloud Catcher roams the sunset, sweeping up every stray Cumulonimbus. She has one mission: to capture the key ingredient to our hazy, smooth Milkshake IPA. Hop-forward with notes of creamsicle and peach, it delivers a citrus-like burst alongside its velvety texture. Her risk is your delicious reward.
Odell Cloud Catcher will be available in 12-ounce cans and draft in August, according to the brewery’s website.
