Thanks to rudzud for sharing this interesting concoction.

Decent fizzy small head fades pretty quickly very hazy murky banana orange juice colored, little lacing.

Nose is like a dipa with nice key lime pie additions, bright earthy slight spicy hops, mild citrus and tropical fruit, into creamy notes, lime, citrus, mild cracker crust, little herbal tea, big bitter hops and sweet base little oily.

Taste wow creamy vanilla pie, creamy pie like, bready cracker crust, sweet key lime, candy, then hops, nice dipa earthy herbal tea hops, mild to fair bitterness, little citrus, juicy and tasty. Finish is semi bitter, little earthy hops and more creamy key lime pie filling.

Mouth is little sticky flemmy, lighter but decent carb.

Overall really interesting. Great key lime pie characters with a nice DIPA blended in, one of the first of these style beers I actually enjoyed.

Shared with JLindros and bpk59.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a very cloudy orange juice hue with a thin white had
that fades almost leaving light lacing and thin blanket.

S - Aromas of a very nice citrus dipa with loads of graham crackers, vanilla, lime. Like someone blended a great dipa with a pie!

T - Taste is again, a wonderful citrus dipa and then WHAM lime and graham cracker, nice vanilla. Like drinking a key lime pie, ample citrus notes, mingled wonderful with pie notes. Just delicious and screams to be drank. Wonderful graham cracker crust and pie notes.

M - Mouthfeel is nice and crisp and clean.

O - Overall I really enjoyed this beer, loads of key lime and ipas goodness.
