From bottle. This was recommended by my local beer/liquor store WLV. Looks like a standard heavy pale ale with slightly darker golden color with nice frothy white head. The smell is amazing with that Lime Zest and juice really amplifying the citrus notes from the hops. It's funny because I hate lagers with line but I occasionally put a lime in an IPA during the summer for this very reason. This goes perfect with Mexican, Thai, or any other spicy foods that use lime. Not a purists beer but a pure joy to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Svartvit (76) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 1, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours a slightly cloudy pale yellow with a small white head. Straight up lime in the aroma. Lime zest, lime juice, lemon, white grape. Taste is under medium bitter, light sour note. Under medium body, medium carbonation. A bit one-dimensional but a nice summer brew I guess.

Faathoven (29) - Barcellona P.G., ITALY - OCT 25, 2016
Aroma: Fresh lime and lemon juice with some bread and cereals, also a subtle grassy hop note. Taste: Really refreshing with a nice lemon/lime/lemon peel flavour never overwhelming. Palate: Medium to low body, it goes down so easily to be an 8% ABV....Wow!

Bottle from Deconinck, Vichte - BE. Color: clear blond beer with small carbonation and medium white foam. Smell: lime and citrus domination. Lemon. Fruity and with small acidity. Hoppy and caramel notes. Taste: medium body with good malt backbone balanced with fruity notes, citrus and lime. Lemon. Intensive taste. Really tasty, good attenuation, quiet drinkable. Aftertaste: lime with sweet and fruity acidity, wet bitterness. Amazing.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; hazy golden yellow pour with a creamy off white head, aroma has big citrus action along with hints of green tea, taste is embarrassingly drinkable for is ABV is tasting like a session, pineapple, grapefruit, mostly on the citrus end of hoppy, pleasant drinking.

ogniskowicz (725) - POLAND - OCT 12, 2016
Mam mieszane odczucia z tym piwem. Aromat mocno limonkowy, z wtrętami grejpfruta, żywicy i minimalną słodkością. W smaku bardzo wytrawne, mocno limonkowe, z słodka pomarańczaą w tle i mocną, ale fajną cytrusową goryczką. W sumie nic wielkiego. Tylko ta pijalność na poziomie lekkiego pale ale :)

davidezdonz (358) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - OCT 7, 2016
A 22 oz bomber with no visible bottled on date on the bottle. Poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass. It poured a golden straw yellow colour with a three finger white head that had pretty good retention and left nice lacing. Aromas are strong lime with a touch of grapefruit pith and lemons. Tastes like the aroma with tangy lime at the forefront followed by some lemon, zest and grains. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall this was not bad but perhaps a bit too much lime such that it overpowers everything else.

rumore (111) - Rimini, ITALY - SEP 30, 2016
American beer tasting at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours pale gold, with white foam. Body links thin. Aroma is very enjoyable with citrus and some exotic fruits hints. At taste, it is evident how the level of alcohol perfectly balances the bitterness. The citrus is noticeable, but not intrusive. Nice imperial IPA.

neongolden (1289) - Linkping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 24, 2016
(650ml bottle from boxbeers.dk) Pours pale gold with a small lasting whitish head and spotty lace. Aroma is light and zesty, very lime juice forward, some orange, white grape, grass, and a touch of bready malt. Flavour is lime juice and zest, grass, touch soapy, light crackery sort of malt, very little bitterness or backbone. Light bodied with low carbonation. Just never really amounts to much, lime juice and little else. Pretty meh from two very capable breweries.

22 oz bottle from Vintner Wine Market. Unclear yellow with a light head and some drippy lacing. Lime, citrus aroma. Some rind notes, a bit of fruity sweetness, finishes somewhat dry. Rather fruity. Drinks nicely. Good beer.

Dogbrick (11879) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 12, 2016
Sample at Paddy Longs in Chicago. This beer is a hazy yellow-gold color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily to a film. Stringy lacing. Lime, hops and malt aroma. Medium body with flavors of zesty lime, herbal hops and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
