This beer was made at Capt. Lawrence with the help of a great and overly shy homebrewer BA who shall remain nameless.
Pours a beautiful, clear, straw/gold, with ample white head that lasts, plentiful lace.
A bit of grain, neutral sweet, and yeasty tart back up a bright citrus hop aroma, fronted by alluringly lavish lemon.
Bright in the mouth with a starkly tasty blast of grainy sweet and lemon. It has other hop flavors going on, some orange, grapefruit, a bit of grass, light floral, but the lemon from the rind additions and Sorachi Ace are the star performers and make an exceptionally delicious beer.
Very viscous, coats the mouth with hop and citrus oils, low carb., super finish, this baby rocks the mouthfeel.
Bettah get you some of this heeaahh now! Once word of this gets out, Limone Lupulo ain't lastin' long on shelf, if you catch my drift.
Serving type: growler

Pretty clear for a wheat ale...nice bright gold.
Smell is faint lemony citrus hop.
Really great balance in the taste; the wheat is not overpowering, but lays out a nice subtle floury backdrop for the lemon and hops. It is also not too lemony; rather, the subtle lemon melds well with the lemony hops. What a great tasting and easy drinking summer beer. Very reasonable pricing for growlers of this at DeCicco's. I bought a growler and a bottle....probably should have bought another growler at least. My guess is that this will sell quickly.
Had a 750ml bottle last night. Also excellent.
Serving type: on-tap
