Willmington Brewing Company Seasonal Bartender Tropical Milkshake India Pale Ale, 7.8% ABV purchased locally from Pop the Top Bottle Shop is brewed with Pale malts, flaked wheat, oats Carapils, Lactose sugar, Azacca, and Chinook hops, dry hopped first with Ekuanot then dry hopped with Mosaic and Amarillo. Seasonal Bartender is brewed with guavas, pineapples and mangos in Willmington, North Carolina and pours an hazy yellow orange juice color with a two finger off white heads that slowly fades into wonderful lacing giving off sweet juicy tropical fruit notes with a slight cream scent that take you to a sweet juicy flavor with touches of bitterness and some creamy notes with a nice cream bitter juicy fruit finish and a similar aftertaste that linger a bit with a creamy medium mouthfeel. This Milkshake IPA is a relatively (2-3 years) new fad within craft beer and one that is slowly growing within. The whole IPA style and Willmington Brewing Company Seasonal Bartender Tropical Milkshake India Pale is a good beer, getting an A here. I find that the lactose does cut back some the hop bitterness so that isn’t a bitter punch in the face but at the same time, it not keeping and bitterness away from your taste buds. The lactose also brings out a sweetness within the fruity flavors adding a new layer of cream bittersweetness. Willmington Brewing Company Seasonal Bartender Tropical Milkshake India Pale is a beer that I recommend but not something that you can have more than two pints of seeing how the flavor is a bit stronger than some beers, but otherwise a great beer! Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
