This Double IPA combines the flavors of ripe orange, vanilla bean and milk sugar 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 Creamsicle Double IPA by Wild Leap Brew Co. is a double IPA brewed with lactose, oranges and vanilla (judged as a Specialty IPA - BJCP sub-style 21B).

In the glass it formed a sparse, shortly-retained white head atop a cloudy pale orange brew. The aroma began with a pleasantly intense blast of fresh orange, which was followed by fainter notes of lactose, vanilla and floral hops, all of which were pleasant and complemented the dominant orange nose.  Similarly, the flavor profile was orange-forward with malt, hops and the other added ingredients playing a supporting but harmonious role, leading to a sweet, tangy and yes, creamsicle-like taste.

The mouthfeel was characterized by a full and multi-layered body, with some creaminess from the lactose and a slight but noticeable alcohol warmth.  There is pleasant hop bitterness in the aftertaste. This is a clean, surprisingly complex yet refreshing and drinkable beer. It outpunches its weight as a specialty IPA and as such rises above many other excellent IPA’s in its class.
