This Double IPA combines the flavors of lime, cherry and raspberry with a big juicy IPA to bring you back to the days when you chased the ice cream truck, not the beer truck.

Truck Chaser Bomb Pop Double IPA by Wild Leap Brew Co. is a Double IPA but falls under BJCP category 21B as a specialty IPA. It lands here instead as it is more of a milkshake IPA than a traditional DIPA. The milkshake IPA is a newer subset of the New England IPA style, using lactose to give it an even fuller/creamier mouthfeel.

This beer pours a deep orange color, approaching light amber due to being super hazy to the point of opaqueness. It also has a creamy off-white head that lasts and clings to the glass. The aroma is hop forward, with a unique blend of fruit – raspberry, white grape – and citrus – lemon/lime, orange – that gives a bit of a sweet/tart juiciness. The flavor is similar, and shockingly a lot like its namesake bomb pop with layers of lemon/lime, cherry, & raspberry. The lemon/lime and citrus (orange/pineapple) last thru the mouthfeel adding some tingly tartness on the palette, but still finishes semi-sweet from the cherry/raspberry fruit, lactose and low bitterness. The malt flavor is almost negligible with a mild crackery, doughy note.  This is an incredibly unique beer and its amazing how close it comes to the bomb pop character.
