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.

Picked up at hill farmstead. Pours a cloudy orange with decent white foam. That dissipates quickly. Nose is sweet and sour at the same time. Lots of lemon zest on the nose. Flavour is kinda tart with lotsa lemon and an odd mouthfeel. Interesting beer but not a fav. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cpetrone84 (1658) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2015
Pour is darker golden amber, light haze, with a small amount of fizzy white head that dissipates immediately. Nose is heavy lemon icy, a lactose cream, hint of peppery spice, and some herbal hop. Flavor is overly sweet and really messy. Gets a touch sour, lemon, heavy booze, dirty lactose, hard to drink. Under carbonated and syrupy feel.

bigda83 (368) - Jamestown, New York, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Poured a clear dark yellow/orange with a small white head. Aromas of lemon, citrus, vanilla. Flavor followed the nose. Medium body and a fairly slick texture. Honestly, this was a decent beer. I’ve had friends say it was awful. It wasn’t bad and quite unique and complex. I wouldn’t go out of my way to find it, but I’d drink it again.

DocLock (8376) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle from Whole Foods PM. Pours hazy, bright gold with 3-finger white head that laces copiously. Nose is intense pineapple, mango, tangerine, white pepper. Tastes tart, fruity, with pineapple, tangerine, mango, and resiny hops. Delicious.

krumbum (636) - truckee, California, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Smells like a foot. Beautiful clear copper with lively frothy head. Tastes like a sourdough rye bread with lemon zest on it. Leaves lasting lemony sour and bitterness.

wlajwl (4417) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 10, 2015
Aroma is lemon/lemon peel, citrus and a hint of hop resin. The flavor is lemons, citrus, slight pine needles, malts and a very tart/dry finish.

sebletitje (7411) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2015
Draft @ Toer de Gueuze 2015, Tilquin. Dorée trouble, col fin blanc. Arôme aux effluves fruitées versant des la citronnelle, citron vert. Palais présente un agréable profil fruité plein de citron et qui rappellent bien le côté citrique-liquoreux du limoncello. Le tout est ponctué par un palais restant légèrement aigrelet alliant les qualités fruitées des houblons et un style à la Berliner dans le malté. Sympa, léger à condition de bien aimer tout ce qui s’apparente au citron.

pepsican (1496) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Lazy yellow pour, small white head. The lactose on this does some crazy shit, would have almost guessed this was a barrel aged beer of some sort based on that. Bright, spritzy lemon character all over this. A big burst of chew on the mouth from the lactose, some sweetness, then a nice rush of sourness to wash that all off your palate. Interesting enough as a small pour.
