COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an awesome collaboration with Mikkeller and Hill Farmstead. It will mess with your mind as an IPA designed to mimic Limoncello. A slightly sour mash, combined with Lactose for sweetness, tonnes of lemon Zest and hopped to death with Sorachi Ace and Citra. Bottle, cask and keg.

Courtesy toss via Pepe. Pours like an IPA with a heavy malt bill. Huge head, dark orange body. Aromas of lemon pledge and flowery perfume. Taste is heavily lemon, lactic tang, bittering hops. Interesting. Alcohol hidden. Finishes pretty drying. Good.

On tap at parker pie: pours clear golden orange with lots of white foamy head. Aroma is malty sweet, citrus, and a little basementy. Taste is very malty with lotsnof sour lemon juice and bitterness from zest. Medium body, a little boozy, it’s ok.

Whatup14 (968) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 25, 2015
Bouteille 500ml. Couleur orangée pâle translucide, mousse blanche nuageuse. Arôme de zeste de citron, malt, citronnelle, alcool, houblon herbal. Goût de citron, acidité moyenne-faible, malt, alcool, houblon herbal, amertume un peu "harsh". Carbonatation moyenne-élevée, corps moyen.

Ed5388 (2496) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 24, 2015
500ml bottle from Craftshack. Pours a cloudy orange/yellow color with 2 fingers of frothy white head. Aroma of sour lemons, fresh citrus, grass, and melon. Taste of sour lemon, lemon zest, grass, sourdough bread, and grapefruit. Interesting, but sour in a weird way. Tastes like an average IPA with lots of lemon juice added.

Picked up at hill farmstead. Pours a cloudy orange with decent white foam. That dissipates quickly. Nose is sweet and sour at the same time. Lots of lemon zest on the nose. Flavour is kinda tart with lotsa lemon and an odd mouthfeel. Interesting beer but not a fav. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cpetrone84 (1665) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2015
Pour is darker golden amber, light haze, with a small amount of fizzy white head that dissipates immediately. Nose is heavy lemon icy, a lactose cream, hint of peppery spice, and some herbal hop. Flavor is overly sweet and really messy. Gets a touch sour, lemon, heavy booze, dirty lactose, hard to drink. Under carbonated and syrupy feel.

bigda83 (381) - Jamestown, New York, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Poured a clear dark yellow/orange with a small white head. Aromas of lemon, citrus, vanilla. Flavor followed the nose. Medium body and a fairly slick texture. Honestly, this was a decent beer. I’ve had friends say it was awful. It wasn’t bad and quite unique and complex. I wouldn’t go out of my way to find it, but I’d drink it again.

Bottle from Whole Foods PM. Pours hazy, bright gold with 3-finger white head that laces copiously. Nose is intense pineapple, mango, tangerine, white pepper. Tastes tart, fruity, with pineapple, tangerine, mango, and resiny hops. Delicious.

krumbum (651) - truckee, California, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Smells like a foot. Beautiful clear copper with lively frothy head. Tastes like a sourdough rye bread with lemon zest on it. Leaves lasting lemony sour and bitterness.

wlajwl (4452) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 10, 2015
Aroma is lemon/lemon peel, citrus and a hint of hop resin. The flavor is lemons, citrus, slight pine needles, malts and a very tart/dry finish.
