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.

deyholla (9257) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 26, 2015
Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with a bit of a gold hue and a near white head that dissipates to the edges slowly. Aroma has a good amount of fresh lemony citrus with sweet grains and grass backing. Flavor is full of sweet lemon that has a growing bitterness and a light sweet grain backbone.

superspak (3960) - Michigan, USA - OCT 10, 2015
500 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 1/14/2016. Pours very hazy deep orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big lemon, lime, grapefruit, tangerine, orange peel, citrus rind, pineapple, berry, pepper, pine, wheat, honey, cream, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great complexity and balance of citrus/tropical hops, lemon juice, and pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big lemon, lime, grapefruit, tangerine, orange peel, citrus rind, pineapple, berry, pepper, pine, wheat, honey, cream, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of piney/spicy/citrus rind bitterness and citrusy tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, lime, grapefruit, tangerine, orange peel, pineapple, berry, wheat, honey, cream, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical hops, lemon juice, and pale malt malt flavors; with a great malt/bitter/tartness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Good amount of dryness from bitterness and tartness. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/sticky/resinous, and lightly acidic mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is an awesome fruited double IPA style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical hops, lemon juice, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

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.

Johnstledger8 (461) - 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.
