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.

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.

bottle. hazy golden orange with one finger head. tart with an abundance of lemon. the hop flavors mesh well, other than the bitterness which is a little out of place. booziness is well hidden.

A hard hitter to be sure. Tastes like one of those lemon sherbet sweets which were quite nice but crossed with a lime fruit pastille which you wouldn’t do. Fine for one, obviously not doable for a session. Avoid if there are better options. A distinctive experience.

Draft at Hen of the Wood. Mostly clear gold orange with a sheeting off white head and medium lace. Strong lemon aroma. Spice forward. Good mix of sweet, tart, and hoppy.

imdownthepub (11377) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2015
Cask conditioned at The Nags Head, Reading, Berks. Hazy gold with white head. There is a sharp lemon character to this, clean and quite bitter. The lemon is pretty dominant but quite pleasant. I wouldn’t want too much of this but enjoyed it non the less.

Bottle. Cloudy straw/gold with some white head. Tons of lemon throughout. Light malt backbone. Soft mouthfeel. A little unbalanced to me.

John25 (1067) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - JUN 22, 2015
Bottle. Hazy bright dark yellow/orange. Sweet tarts, lemon sour, exactly like lemon cello. Great job on the concept but, not my favorite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Side Project, this was one I couldn’t pass up, just seemed to strange not to try, pours a clear amber orange with an off white head, the aroma is pretty heavy on the citrus and fruit, with a little bit of funk and sourness in there, the flavor starts out with some lemon and fruit with a funky finish, some hops still in there as well, this is really strange, don’t think I would chase down again anytime soon.

On tap at The Farmhouse. Boozy, sourish, tastes pretty awful. A hint of lemon. I guess they hit the limoncello flavor they were going for. But how could anyone drink more than a sip of this stuff? Why bother making this?
