Wild Leap Brew Co. (LaGrange, Georgia) has officially announced that it will continue its Truck Chaser Series of ice cream/frozen treat-inspired Double IPAs with the late June release of Truck Chaser – Lemon Ice.
Developed to capture all the summertime refreshment found in “a frozen lemon Italian ice,” Truck Chaser – Lemon Ice (8.1% ABV) is a Double India Pale Ale “brewed using puréed lemon and real vanilla bean with added milk sugar to give the beer a creamy sweetness.” Citrus hops reinforce, support and complement the beer’s lemony notes “while the milk sugar provides the sweetness familiar to a lemonade push pop.”
“Because the Truck Chaser Series is such a special series, I’m very particular with the design process,” explains Chief Brewing Officer, Chris Elliott. “After the crew has gathered around and taken a vote on the inspiration for the next release, the ingredient selection process is extremely strategic.”
“Like all the Truck Chaser’s we’ve released, Truck Chaser Lemon Ice has been such a fun process,” says Wild Leap’s CMO, Rob Goldstein. “From the first team meeting where we discuss novelty ice cream treats we all remember buying, to the can packaging, there’s never a dull moment with a Truck Chaser release.”
Truck Chaser – Lemon Ice debuted in Wild Leap’s taproom on June 22 and is rolling out into distribution this week. You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and draft at select craft beer-focused establishments located within Wild Leap’s distribution footprint in Georgia. Prost!
