Batch 155, lots of lime and stale hops. This was an old bottle and almost undrinkable at this point. Not sure how much better this is fresh, but not good at this point.

mcberko (5942) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 7, 2013
22 oz. bottle, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out loads of citrus hops, limey zest, and herbal notes. Flavour is extremely limey, with loads of citrusy lime hops - not a whole lot else. The like is very front and centre, without much else that’s discernible. Okay at first, but it gets too limey after a while. Drinkable, but not very enjoyable.

burg326 (3530) - Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2013
22 ounce bottle, poured a yellow cloudy color with aromas of lime, zest, light tropical fruit and a touch of grass. Flavors were the same, light spice in the taste, but a nice lime zest in the flavor, solid beer overall.

Thanks St.Fun! Cloudy bright lemon rind yellow with one finger of white head. Absolutely wonderful nose, tons of tropical fruit and citrus with a touch of lime zest. Overripe citrus and lemon juice with a bunch of lime rind. Very dry palate and moderate bitterness. Too much citrus rind shows on the palate.

Strykzone (4783) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 23, 2013
Sampled at esbls. Hazed golden. A really nice aroma of lime, citris, and rich malts. Some funk with fruit and soft malts. Lime is tasted but is not big. Nice.

22oz bottle poured into pint glass. Pours hazy yellow with a good amount of foamy head. Lots of lime zest, grassy notes. Mostly lime zest on the taste, maybe even a hint of lemon in there with very mild hop notes and bitterness. Sweet balanced finish with mild carbonation. Very good and refreshing.

Lukaduke (2004) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Bottle shared at Oxbow bottle release. Pours a hazy yellow with a finger of gaseous foam. Lots of lime and grass... pungent with a trace of sweetness and a good clean malt backbone. Slightly herbal but overall a very tasty DIPA with lots of pleasant hop notes that ride the round mouthfeel to a bitter finish.

22 oz. bottle served in a Pipeworks snifter. Batch #136. A: Pours a golden orange color with a chilled haze. A white head forms on the pour and recedes to a thick collar of foam. Sticky sheets of lace are left down the glass. S: Big notes lime zest and juice. Slightly sweet sugar covered lemon with a grassy hop undertone. T: Big citrus notes. Mostly lime flesh and zest with a little bit of lemon. There is a slight sour pucker courtesy of the lime, like from a strong margarita. Nice cracker malt balances it out. M: Medium to light bodied with a zesty and sweet finish. Mediumish carbonation. O: Super zesty. There is no shortage of lime flavor in this one so if you enjoy that flavor then you’ll really enjoy this beer. Exactly what you expect. Serving type: bottle 05-19-2013
