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.

500ml bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of lemon and citrus, some weird malts and sweetness, pale and caramel malts, floral and lightly citrusy hops, and light spices. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not the best beer.

Bottle, from the HF bottle shop. Smells like hops that are kinda past prime. Taste ia sour lemon juice. But not like wild sour, lemon juice sour. Sour becomes stronger on the back end. Ok, but not great.

On tap at the Redchurch Brewery. Amber pour with a white head. Aromas of peach, pineapple lots of fruit in there. Citrus and apricot jam flavour. Quite dry. Quite a tasty number.

foxo82 (794) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. I’m a big fan of limoncello so I was looking forward to this. The first time I bought this, I thought there was something wrong with it: sour vinegar almost masking the lemon. Now I’ve bought it again and it’s exactly the same so it must be just the way it is. Clear, headless apple juice colour. Aroma is bitter grapefruit and ginger, like many IPAs. But then there’s the vinegar. Limoncello is sweet; this has no sweetness at all and is difficult to drink. Disappointing.

Draft - Sweet caramel and lemon and grapefruit. Clear gold with a decent white head. Tart lemon and a nice sweet balance. Nicely done.

martjoobolut (1463) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 7, 2014
Shared by suurjuust, thanks! Pours dark golden-amber with off-white head. The head doesn’t stay. Aroma is citrus, lemon, honey, tropical fruits. Flavor is sour, lemon with hint of grapefruit. Finish is tart lemon. Alcohol is well covered. Overall: tastes reminds lemon juice. Not really complex or exciting, but drinkable.

hohops (499) - Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2014
Bottle. Pours light amber, a bit cloudy, a small white bubbly head which slowly goes. Mostly lemon meringue in the aroma, also hoppy and fruity. Taste is juicy lemon, candied fruit, sugary, slightly sour, almost hinting at a gueuze. Medium to full in the mouth, hop resins and lemon juice in the finish. Nice, and interesting.

När livet ger dig citroner, gör lemonad. Så lyder ett känt ordspråk som månglas ut av olika positivt tänkande-profeter. Siren har uppenbarligen tagit sig friheter med det uttrycket och gjort öl av sina citroner. Om de inte får ett kännbart straff i livet för den här styggelsen hoppas jag att någon hinsides tar tag i den saken.

WillRunForBeer (1327) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy white gold with a clingy white head. Aroma is very lemony, some pine, crackers. Taste is very lemony, like lemonade in my beer kind of lemony, with some light grains, maybe a hint of caramel, and a touch of grassy bitterness.

Tap at the Bottle Shop. Aroma is dangerous, but taste is lovely. Lemon, bit of sweetness, alcohol is totally hidden. Touch of sourness. Great
