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.

Pours a dark yellowish orange. The aroma is strange, filled with lemon and alcohol. The flavor is tart and the beer is overall unpleasant. This should have been dumped and never distributed

Bottle from Table and Vine. Clear gold with ring. Lemon pastry aroma with hints of sour candy. Sweet melony gross cloying milky texture with gross cloying lemon zest sweet and sour candy sugary finish. Medium full sticky yucky body. Gross. Luckily is wasn’t too expensive. On the other hand, if it was more expensive I wouldn’t have wasted my money. Nobody is perfect -- Mikkeller and Hill Farmstead are still great, but this sucks.

5oz on tap at Liberty’s. Tom S. tells me that this is brewed at Hill Farmstead, Hazy orange amber color. Thin ring of white head. Grapefruit, lemon, lots of pleasant citrus. Mild caramel malt. Moderate tart taste, moderate sweet, some bitterness. Balanced, pleasant taste. Bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, crisp, lighter carbonation, kind of syrupy. Hides the alcohol well, aside from the bigger slick body. Really fun, tasty, different IPA. Definitely a lot of pleasant citrus, both from hops and the yeast.

Almost sour with quite different bitter taste. No foam. You can taste the lemon after a while... Surpricing and nice...

Bottle share thanks to beechner224. Big citrus - lemon aroma, acid, tart. Fairly hazy, golden yellow color. Big lemon flavor, dessert like sweetness, tart and acidity. Mild smooth bitterness.

Bottle from Rick. Pours orange with white head. Aroma is sweet lemons. Taste is the same, sweet, get the lemon tartness. Certainly an interesting brew.

pours unclear bright golden with a nice white cap, reviving and leaving nice lacing. sulfuric and dusty lemons, citric acidity, minty, hint of sweetness - fruit salad juice/syrup, fat and doughy sweet bready maltiness, powdery candies - tart lemony ones, grass and bitter herbs, grapefruit, chalk. light carbonation, medium body - oily, tart and bitter tropical-lemony finish. enjoyed this very unique concoction.

Tester, Erzbierschof Tab. Viel Zitrone in der Nase und auch im Mund. Ziemlich Sauer, wenig Bitter, gleichwohl leicht süss. Gar nicht übel.

Keg at CASK in Pimlico. Enjoyable and nicely hopped IPA but the lemon kicks in way too strongly in the finish, making it sharp, sour and hard to enjoy. Interesting concept, but not one that works for me.

Una sorpresa molto interessante, complessa, con note alcoliche elegantemente bilanciate da una marcata impronta citrica, sfumature maltate e appena appena caramellate. Davvero memorabile!
