I live in the Denver area so I got a chance to sample the central regions Odell’s Draft Party Milkshake IPA at my local Buffalo Wild Wings. If you’re not familiar with the milkshake IPA style it’s a hazy IPA with lactose added to provide a sweeter more velvety full body. This type of IPA is a sub style of the popular New England IPA. Here’s my thoughts on this yummy craft draft:
Beer Name: Draft Party Milkshake IPA
Brewery: Odell’s Brewing Company
Brewery Location: Fort Collins, Colorado
Style: Milkshake IPA
Tasting Notes: This is a beer that really walks you through all its different tasting flavors. A fruit forward craft IPA that is bright Bronco Orange. It initially starts right out with this rich creamy aroma and taste of peach on the head. Then quickly moves on to more subtle pineapple and pear notes. The sweetness “milk sugar” kicks in on the palette before you get the final finish of bitterness from the hops.
Odell’s Draft Party Milkshake IPA is available on tap at BW’s restaurant in 8 states including Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Texas, and Wyoming. Buffalo Wild Wings is an official sponsor of Great American Beer Festival my all time favorite beer event to attend every year!
