3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer pours a slightly hazy straw golden color with a small white head that fades quickly to a ring. The aroma blends resin hops, lemon juice, lemon zest, and a hint of pale malts; the taste is mildly bitter, mildly sour, and a touch sweet with an aftertaste that is pure lemon juice and zest. The palate fuses an oily texture, medium-light body, and a soft carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl bottle. BBE 04/2015.
Pours hazy pale golden color with a small head. Quite a fair amount of lemon and orange peel on the aroma of this one, subtle grassy notes, some spruce, mild juniper tones there too, herbs and floral hops. Tart lemon and grapefruits on the flavor, lingering and mouth-watering bitterness, some gooseberries on the finish. This is not a very fresh bottle so the hops are not at their best, lemon is clearly the dominant flavor, slightly off-balanced at that. Somewhat sourish palate, lingering lemony tart finish. A bit weird to be honest, doesn’t quite meet my expectations.

I’m not sure where to start, if I didn’t know this was an ipa it would take me some time to figure it out. Has a crisp sour flavor, mild hops. I think they nailed what they were going for. Definitely similar to a sipping lemon cello.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In bottiglia. COlore giallo dorato, schiuma fine, non eccessiva e non molto persistente. Aromi lattici, di cantina seguiti da un ondata di zest e limonata fresca, pungente. Al palato l’alcoolicitŕ č assolutamente ben nascosta e anzi la bevuta č abbastanza scorrevole accompagnata da una fresca spremuta di limone. Ottima anche se non esattamente una session beer, nč per il grado alcoolico nč per i sapori che alla lunga stancano

Bottle @ home, thanks to Lukaduke for sending. Clear golden Orange appearance with a cream colored head. Twangy lemon, gooey, tart, herbal, white grape aroma. Slight note of pinesol. Moderately high bitterness. Pretty strong on the booze. Some sweetness. Heavy chemical lemon flavor. Weird weird beer.

Shared by Nick at the Pig. Small snifters. Pours a light golden yellow with a big head. Aroma is tart lemons, some mild hoppy funk, and cereal grains. The taste is HUGE lemon and lemon zest, cereal grains, and some mild hop bitterness. The lemon was too much or I wasn’t in the mood. I think it left a little burning sensation on the finish that I didn’t care for. Not my cup of tea...or snifter of beer. Light body, refreshing.

Bottle. Mild hoppy aroma. Very lemony. A bit sour. Smoothly bitter finish. Not your typical IPA. Interesting one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle from Ales by Mail
BBE 31st April 2015 - Pours clear yellowish orange with a tiny white head. Aroma of zesty lemon peel, bubblegum, citrus, tart fruits and yogurt notes. Taste is lactic sourish, hoppy and zesty with loads of citrus, lemon, hints of bubblegum and tart fruits. Finish is zesty, sour and tart with loads of fruitness and some hoppiness. Quite interesting combination, but not quite there. Lactic sourness doesn’t quite fit in, but this would be awesome with some Bretta thrown in.

Flaska köpt på Systembolaget, Boländerna. Doften är full av humle blandat med lite citron. I smaken tar citronen över betydligt och balanserar inte särskilt snyggt. Ingen höjdare.
