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.

Draft at iron abbey. Pours clear golden with a medium sized white head. The aroma is quite happy with plenty of lemon and orange shining through. The taste is over the top lemon, light bitterness, citrusy finish.

Pours a slightly hazy gold with a short, foamy white head. It has a rich lemon aroma with some tart notes. The flavor is lemon and sourness with some lactose sweetness and a smooth body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Johnstledger8 (263) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 21, 2015
Bottle. Cloudy orange with a mostly lasting white head. Aroma of lemon peel, ginger, honey. Similar taste, loads of lemon, really similar to limoncello. Oily mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Great stuff.

DarkElf (3050) - La Jolla, California, USA - AUG 20, 2015
19-Sep-14 (500-ml bottle: Purchased 19-Sep-14 for $10.59 at The Bine & Vine Bottle Shop in San Diego, CA)
This beer pours a very hazy, dark-golden body with almost an inch of off-white head that settles to a creamy sheet and ring. The nose is a combination of Lemon Pledge and lychee, with pink grapefruit and a hint of stinky feet. On the palate, it tastes like sour pink grapefruit and lychee juices with just a hint of sweetness. The beer is light-medium in weight, medium in carbonation, and light-medium in acidity with a somewhat dry finish. Overall, this really doesn’t taste like limoncello at all, which is a good thing because I think limoncello is pretty bad. But this beer is simple and straight forward and doesn’t really even have a lemony character. Good, not a great beer.

SetauketBrewer (68) - New York, USA - AUG 19, 2015
Aroma is wonderful! Probably my favorite part of the beer honestly. Lemon and pine mingle almost perfectly. Tart lemon aroma but not puckeringly so. Flavor takes up more of the lemon tartness. Funky which is great but honestly a little too much. Could use some residual sweetness to balance just a bit. Very close approximation of the beloved Italian liquor

Chalumeaux (433) - Methuen, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 15, 2015
Poured from bottle hazy deep orange with a thin white head. Aromas of sweet lemon candied citrus floral and pine. Taste is sweet with a light bitter notes like the aroma. A nice drinker for a hot summer day.

HogTownHarry (6293) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2015
September 8,2 014 - at Craft Clapham - on draught.Looks great - hazy deep orange-gold with a smallish but lasting tightly foamy off-white head. Aroma is super - floral, pine, alcohol, fruity and lemony - taste - big hit of green oak tannin (frankly my palate may have been shocked) with waves of lemon/citrus - has a sharp bite, and now I read the description, that "oak" is just Sorachi messing with my palate the way it usually does - good stuff! Average body, solid carbonation, quite astringent, with a long big finish. Lovely.

From cask. Hazy yellow golden color with white head. Hoppy malty and yeasty aroma, citrusy fruity, lemon and orange, grassy. Sweet and light bitter taste like aroma. Medium oily body with soft carbonation

On draft at Hunahpu day 2015. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is some sweet lemon, candied citrus, sweetness, and some mild citrus bitterness. Flavor is sweet lemon, candied citrus, big sweetness, and citrus bitterness. Light to medium in body and very nice IPA overall. I like the concept and thought it was well executed.

tmoreau (2988) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 25, 2015
Shared 16.9 oz. bottle poured to snifters, showing a hazed, orangey gold color, with a frothy layer of soft white head foam, and clingy ribbons & dots of lacing. The nose was initially dank, then followed with a mixture of esters as pit fruit, orange, and especially lemon. The taste highlighted expressive & zesty lemon, just a touch of sweetness, dryness, and tartness that worked well with the moderate carbonation. A bit less than medium bodied, hop bitterness was citrusy & rind-like, and the alcohol seemed well masked. A unique IPA recipe to say the least.
