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.

Hermod (3905) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUL 17, 2014
33cl bottle from Systembolaget, Sundsvall. BBE 15 April 2015. Amber color, thin white head. Wow, very strong lemon at first, some biscuity notes, citrus hops in aroma. Flavor is tart with lemon juice, hops, cloudberries and pine notes. Mouthdrying, tart finish. Extreme, but refreshing. Haven’t had Limoncello, but this is a little like drinking some lemon mix you pour in drinks, only hoppier.

Orange, large but brief off-white head. Wrong aroma. A bit of a gag to be honest. Sickly sweet mashy malts, a bit lactic, hinting towards sour milk or even babyvomit. Tastes even worse, if that’s possible. Fizzy carbonation, acidic bite, even some aceticity to that. Not getting lemon, I’m getting bile. Dunno if that’s me, I may have thrown up a little bit in my mouth when I finally got my nose close enough to the beer to be able to take a sip. Finish lasts forever. Probably several days or even weeks if the staff don’t come out to clean up the glasses. And by that I mean I left it, absolutely no interest in such a mess. Maybe that’s a littled unfair, as the late finish did have a pleasant milky graininess to it. As well as the battery acid.

Flaska delad med @thaalcoholic, tack. Grumlig bärnstensfärgad vätska med vitt skum. Doftar mjukt av humle och citrus. Wohoo vilken citronjuice. Jag gillart!

Alusmamuts (789) - LATVIA - JUL 14, 2014
Nice aroma. Light amber with rich white cap. Very sour with lemon sourness, it is not easy to feel bitterness which nevertheless is presented. Maybe IPA by the technology, but not in taste. If lemons are fruits - some kind of strong IPA fruit beer.

Flavour of strong citrusy bitterness, herbs, biscuit, tropical fruits and orange marmalade. Some sourness as well. Lingering bitter, juicy and sharp citrusy finish. Citrus overload.

Zekada (380) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle from systembolaget. Smell of hops, flowers and citrus. It also has a sour aroma. Pours hazy almost cloudy golden with a medium white head. The taste strongly reminds of a sour beer and although the high ABV it’s surpringsingly mild in tatse. The palate is thin, but it last quite a while.
