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.

omhper (24774) - Tyres, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2014
Bottled, from Systembolaget. Hazy golden, rich head. Lemony nose with some kumquat. Sweet and sour with full body and bold, rounded mouthfeel. Distinct lemon flavour, some kumquat and tangerine. Resiny bitterness and evident alcohol heat in the finish. One big flavour, not a lot of nuances.

Craft islington. Keg. Hazy gold beer, little white head. Palate is smooth and light and semi dry. Flavour is a tart lemon with lesser lemon and orange sherbet. Very tangy almost sour. Finishes dry and crisp. This beer is flirting with sour. Very nice it is but I preferred Ryans original version which was less tangy.

Draft at Churchkey, staff recommendation. Cloudy yellow color, fluffy white head. Aroma of freshly cut wet grass and lemony hops. Taste is like a dry hopped bitter limoncello. Interesting.

Leighton (20792) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2013
Tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013 - Day 2, Session 2. Pours cloudy yellow-gold with a fine, white cream head. Dank lemon and orange citrus aroma, some rind. Medium sweet flavor with light bitter lemon peel, moderate tang, soft alcohol. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Light sticky-sweet finish with juicy lemon and tangerine. Decent stuff. (3.6)

Update: Ive since tried this beer on keg around London and have found it a lot more enjoyable. Bumping the score up to 3.8.
