Hop Treat: Stuffed with Citra and Mosaic Hops! Ice Cream Indulgence: Hefty additions of juicy Mandarin orange, velvety vanilla, and creamy lactose! Melty Mouthfeel: Velvety smooth with just a small, lip-smacking bite of citrus rind on the finish.
My parents went through various health crazes when I was growing up, including one year when they banned all “frozen sugar treats.” So, when I discovered a crisp five-dollar bill on the sidewalk one afternoon, I went straight to the supermarket ice cream aisle!
It took me less than 20 minutes to wolf down an entire box of creamsicles, and man oh man, brain freeze never felt so worth it.
I still have a thing for creamsicles. Only today’s hoard-worthy orange-cream delight comes not from a chilly store freezer, but from the Midwest brewers that PorchDrinking.com calls out for “truly making pieces of liquid art.”
And, today’s treat comes in the even more delicious, silky ‘n citrusy Milkshake IPA form!
The Brewing Projekt loaded their hop-sicle rendition with real fruit and cream. Every succulent sip goes down like a melty creamsicle, wrapped in a pleasantly buzzing 6.6% ABV.
I’ve still never told my parents about my sneaky, frozen sugar treat feast all those years ago, and I probably won’t tell them about today’s Resist: Creamsicle. I’m hoarding at least a few cans of this limited delicacy all to myself. Though this time, I think I’ll savor it more slowly to avoid brain freeze.
