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.

This is fantastic stuff and does a great interpretation of a beer in the style of classic limoncello. The pour is a hazy yellow, just like limoncello and the aroma is a warming lemons and sugar. The taste is great. It really marries the IPA withe the mouthfeel and sweetness from limoncello. Really Really Good!

Bottle from HFS. Pours an opaque orange, nice white head. Aroma is wheat, lemongrass, barnyard, hay, floral hop, wet grass hop, dandelion, some booze - complex nose. Flavor is medium acidic lemon, fresh floral hops and tart lemon again on the back end. This is fairly well balanced for the ABV and flavor mashup, wasn't sure how a soured IPA would go but well done. Med body, moderately boozy and sour, lively carbonation, a bit sugary from lactose.

Bottle. Lemon zest and spice highlights. Some hoppy bitterness, but it’s overshadowed by the lemon notes. Cloudy yellow pour with a white head. Good body and mouthfeel.

AirForceHops (3198) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle purchased at HFS. Clear yellow color with light white head in the snifter. Aroma is lemon, sugar, lemongrass and light lactic notes. The flavor is pretty interesting, it really is close to the liquor drink. Tart sweet lemons, weak hops and sugar mixture. Nice balance of tart and bitter.

**beware**. This has lactose sugar. If I wasn’t intolerant I could drink a lot of this. I am grateful that they informed the consumer of the lactose!

Spännande öl. Extremt tydlig smak av citron och citronskal. Tydlig beska. Mer intressant än nödvändigtvis så god. Men jag är glad att jag provat den. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

caesar (5131) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2014
Tap @ Queens Head near St Pancras, medium sample, served in a tulip glass. Slight hazy yellow to golden color, short head. Aroma of tart citrus, lemon, some citrussy hop. Quite sour taste, citric acid, together with modest bitterness. Was not aware of 9% and it certainly didnt feel that way, until the next morning :-). A bit too harsh on the sour lemon juice, but for the rest very good stuff.

danlo (1168) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2014
330ml bottle from BeerRitz. Clear orange amber colour, foamy white head and aroma of malt caramel, lemon citrus, hoppy, slight barnyard. Taste is initially malt caramel with tropical fruits, orangey hop which morphes into tart lemon, citrus rind and then becomes more lambic-like with a barnyard note. Oily mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry sour & warming finish. Interesting, refreshing, very drinkable.

Clear dark orange color, small white head. Smell and taste lightly malts, sourness, lemon, lime. Not my thing, too much sourness and lime and things in there. Don’t like it.

Bottle thanks to Will. Pours a clear copper orange with small off white head. The aroma is strong lemon zest, lacto, oak. Medium mouthfeel with nice tart lemon, light hop, and tart finish. Good.
