Hop Butcher For The World | Blazed Orange Milkshake IPA
Even in uncertain times, craft breweries and American ingenuity continue to create unique new ways to drink and enjoy craft beer. In Chicago, finding an establishment to sit outside and enjoy a cold one can still be hard to come by. Outdoor dining is limited, and people are lining up at the door to get a small dose of what feels like normalcy. However, with ample green space in and around the city, there is no shortage of places that provide some shade and plenty of space to spread out if relaxation and quiet are what you crave.
Just in time for the dog days of summer, Hop Butcher For The World released their highly sought after Blazed Orange Milkshake IPA, giving Chicagoland craft beer drinkers an IPA reminiscent of childhood summers and simpler times. Inspired by the classic frozen treat, Hop Butcher used their American ingenuity to bring you a Creamsicle in a glass.
Blazed Orange features Citra and Strata hops to enhance the citrus flavor that dominates the beer’s profile. Expect this IPA to pour a very thick, hazy straw color with a noticeably sweet orange aroma on the nose. Hop Butcher has always expertly balanced the flavor profiles of their milkshake IPAs, and Blazed Orange is no different. A well-balanced flavor profile of freshly squeezed orange juice melds with just the right amount of creamy vanilla, adding a touch of sweetness at the end. While this style might not be for everyone, it pairs perfectly with a fruit salad or a warm, summer afternoon on the porch… PorchDrinking. 🙂
