2L growler in a pint glass. Pours hazy amber with an off-white head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops, some light lime notes, pale and light caramel malts, plus some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. A pretty good beer.

Draft at the source courtesy of Judy, thank you ma’am! Hazy golden yellow color, white edge head. Aroma of lime and lemongrass. Taste is bitter citrus. I would like to have tasted the winner!

All the enjoyable characteristics of an IPA with the interesting twist of lime. The lime comes through nicely without being overpowering or distracting from the solid beer that underlies.

This one poured an orange color with a white head. Was of lime leaves, citrusy hops, and light bread. Flavor was similar but with slightly more lime, possibly a bit of a diacytl. Still flavorful is a decent amount of citrus hops. Good.

Growler. Pours golden orange with a thin white head. Fresh citrus, lightly sweet malts, and a medium fruity hoppy finish. Relatively low bitterness, but still maintains good hop flavor. Pretty good, but not as good as grapefruit.

argo0 (13318) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Draft. Small white head atop clear dark amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, key lime pie, some grapefruit. Taste is medium sweet, lime, grapefruit. Light-medium body, some acidity. For me, lime is usually an off-taste, but it works well here.

Aroma is caramel and citrus. Mouthfeel is a bit sticky though its not the highest is alc. finish is a bit pasty. Good overall.

JulienHuxley (5642) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 9, 2013
From growler. Dark gold pour, thin white head. Aroma of fruity, tropical and citrusy hops. Taste is really citrusy, very good hop flavor, light maltiness. Palate is a tad flat, but all things considered, very good.

Served on-tap at Ffej of July and later at Al’s of Hampden.

A - Pours clear amber orange with a small one finger tall white head, dissipating down to next to nothing, leaving spotty trails of lace down parts of the glass.

S - Smells of caramel malt, lime leaves, mild citric and piney hops and some fresh cut grass. Considering they used no lime juice or zest in this beer, just lime leaves, the aroma still packs quite a bit of lime to it.

T - Starts off with some caramel malt sweetness that quickly gives way to hints of lime leaves, grass and the piney/citric hops. Hops are stronger here than in the nose, helping to offset some of the lime flavor. Finish is pretty bitter with a touch of sweetness, leaving the palate dried and lingering long after the finish.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, hoppy feel with some light sweetness at the end of each sip. Pretty easy to consume, just not as easy as the Grapefruit is.

O - I like this one. The flavors are solid but it lacks the punch and drinkability of the grapefruit beer. Definitely worth a shot if you get the chance.

On tap at Al’s of Hampden. Pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma of sweet fruits, lime, citrus, grassy hops, stinky hops, caramel malt. Flavor of lime and sweet citrus up front with grassy hops and caramel malt in the finish. Interesting, tasty IPA. 7/4/8/4/14 (3.7/5)
