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.

drsandman (542) - New York, USA - AUG 26, 2014
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.

magsinva (941) - Virginia, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Bottle - this one definitely plays with the lemon side of hops, more than the bitter. Very acidic. Nice, if you like that kind of thing (which I do).

DiarmaidBHK (3669) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Bottle from wine and cheese station. Pours golden and cloudy with a white head. Leaves a fair amount of lacing in the glass. Definite citrus on the nose. Lots of lemon on the tongue with a hint of sweetness. Thereís a bit of sourness as well. Itís an interesting twist on the IPA.

Delicious beer. Smells sour/lemon, tastes extremely fresh, lemon - deceiving: it hides its 9% abv very well! Irresistible

Beer4000 (4942) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 13, 2015
330 ml bottle sampled April 2014. Slightly unclear orange/golden body with a small off-white head. Quite unusually aroma, some malt, chewing gum, lemon and flowers. Flavor has citric fruit, chewing gum, orange zest and moderate bitterness. Medium body and more than less just citric fruit in aftertaste. Strange, sweet, more like a novelty beer. Still fun.

bottle, from Bottle Revolution RDU. good aroma, sweet, citrus. Lemon. brownish orange color, good head and lace, bitter sweet flavor. medium body, smooth creamy mouthfeel, real bitter finish, love the aroma, flavor and finish are soapy, and to me, a bit of a turn off, not as good as the lime cello I had, but darn good

Strange ipa. Very tart, salty in a Strange way. Maybe this isnít so fresh as he would be... But itís ok. Lemon zest,resins, a lit bit to much caramalt for the genre but remains a good beer. I want to retry this fresh
