Banana Milkshake IPA Recipe

Img 2250

Highlighting Bananza™ Ale (OYL-400), we wanted to create a rich and velvety IPA with big aromatics and an approachable flavor palate.

We created a malt bill with high protein malts to build foundation for heavy hop additions and rich mouthfeel. The hop bill is focused on modern fruity hops that we selected to complement the heavy banana ester profile of Bananza Ale.

Once finished, it tastes exactly like it sounds: ripe banana, some tropical fruit and tangerine from the sabro, and complemented by a huge aromatic burst that tops it off.
