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.

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.

Rating #1932 - 2015.09.25 - #CraftTakesSeattle Day 2, Beer 31 - Draught at Brouwers Cafe . Pours a darker amber, with a bubbly tan head. Aroma is doughy, pastry malt, and a bold punch of fresh squeezed lemon juice in the mix. Taste is boldly hopped, pastry dough malt meets the fruit bomb, lots of lemony notes throughout. Wow.

glennmastrange (2666) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUL 5, 2016
Bottle. Moderate grain for the malt, herbs for the hops, light dough for the yeast, with big notes of lemon with fresh cut rind, dried apricot, and candy sugar. Head is small to average, frothy, white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky medium amber. Flavor starts slightly sweet and moderately to heavily acidic and sour, then finishes moderately to heavily acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, oily with a soft to lively carbonation and a tart and dry finish. Wow, I wasn’t expecting this. What a combination of a crisp DIPA with the perfect amount of lemon thrown in.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Aroma of malt and fresh citrus. Cloudy dark amber color, smooth 1" ivory head, dots and splashes of lace. Taste is slightly sour malt that adds a hint of bittering before turning the whole thing over to sweet citrus. Not like a shandy, something different going on her, but, it still isn’t a satisfying brew. Much too sweet at the end, in fact, it loses track of the whole IPA business about halfway through. I will not buy this again.

jjgmd (1985) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - FEB 27, 2016
Pours a dark golden rusty pour with an ephemeral white head. Nose is strong citrus with heavy sweeter lemon....with lighter citrusy hops . Taste is through and through bitter lemon, and ends on tart and spurn notes. Finishes on the same tasting notes , with a very long tart lemony ending. A very pleasant palate pleaser ! Quaff Score 8 /10

deyholla (9997) - 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 (4669) - 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.
