Been enjoying some bottles of this over the past week or so. Marinated a porkchop with some 2 nights ago.

Appearance - Hazy orange with a white head. Retention is great, lacing is substantial.

Smell - Nice sour lemon kick, weird earthy/floral/vegetal/funky hop, a bit of a brett-like presence. Some lacto-yogurt type notes and toasted bread. Kinda reminds me of a lemonized version of some other Mikkeller IPA experiences (Crooked Moon Tattoo, American Style).

Taste - Lemon zest blast. Lemon meringue pie doused in lemonade then sprinkled with some lemon hard candies for good measure. Still a big lactic cream presence as well. Lime/various tart citrus, some earthy resin hop, spice, bread. Lemon and lactose mesh very well here.

Mouthfeel - Smooth and well-carbonated overall, lemon flavor wears out the palate, hop bitterness is there but not as punchy as one might expect in a DIPA. Flashes of alcohol here and there but not bad for 9.1%. 500ml would probably be best to split.

Overall - I've never had a limoncello before, but I assume this can be labeled 'mission accomplished' - this more or less drinks like an alcoholic lemon soda of sorts. The flavors presented are definitely an accomplishment, but it comes off as a novelty beer, something that would be good once in a great while. I would've liked to see a little less lemon and a little more hop profile.

On draught at Prohibition Pig. From notes.

A white head at the rim and golden orange in color. Aroma is a medley of fruits (lemon and grapefruit) and candy. A bit of pine if you look for it. Taste is sweet (but not overly so) and fruity with a slim, zesty body all worked over by notes of piney hops. More fruitiness than expected in a DIPA, but unique and tasty nonetheless.

330ml bottle, best before 31/12/2015, poured in to a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.

A - bright yellow. Murky with lots of sediment. No head at all.

S - not a whole lot on the nose, but it's pretty much what you'd expect - typical IPA hop smell with lemon mixed in.

T - sharp lemon...that's it. This tastes just like lemon juice.

F - dry and refreshing.

O - not bad,but not great. I love lemons, I love IPA's so I was expecting more from this. Sirens Neither IPA is much better. I'm glad I tried this,but I wouldn't go out of my way to getting again. To much lemon in my opinion. Although,stick this alongside some traditional fish and chips,you may have a winner...maybe something I try.

Poured from growler from Perfect Pour same day into New Belgium globe

A-Hazy yellow color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass.

S-lemon grass, hops and a hint of malt in the nose.

T-a citrusy lemon character and flavors of floral hops and toasted malt.

M-Mouthfeel is medium body the finish is moderately bitter with a lingering lemony hops aftertaste. Great carbonation!

O-Pretty damn good overall IPA, I love the lemon. It would perfect in the summer.

330ml bottle bought from Lighthouse Wines, Jordanstown

Poured an bright amber colour. Slightly off white head poured thick and meringue like then faded slowly to good thick coating... very faint carbonation drifts slowly to surface... some decent patchy lacing...

Aroma - Big blast of lemon up front followed by spicy and peppery hops, light sugary sweetness, some grapefruit, quite earthy

Taste - Intense lemon and citrus hop bitterness to the fore followed by light spicy fruits (grapefruit and lime), the citrus fades to light sugary sweetness, some light metallic traces, faint saltiness, yeasty notes...

Feel - Very sharp and dry... medium bodied... dangerously drinkable as the 9% is nowhere to be seen

Overall - An excellent and very original IPA. Excellent on a warm spring day !! Highly recommended

12oz bottle poured into a Hill Farmstead pint glass.

A~ dark copper orange with a slight head and no lacing.

S~ straight lemon grass! slight pils malt characteristics and a little bit of caramel.

T~ whoa! lemon bomb! i'm surprised there wasn't actual lemon grass used in this cause thats exactly what it tastes like. must just be the lemon zest/juice playing with the hops. other than that really nice tart presence and super well balanced for the high gravity.

M~ extremely smooth, puckering and refreshing! seriously like no other!

O~ super solid! i could drink this all summer, all day long and get completely wrecked! isn't that always the plan? haha i love brews that incorporate a lot of lemon, kind of reminds me of the Widmer Brothers Lemongrass Wheat. definitely worth a shot, but not for everybody for sure. i hope this makes it to the states in bottles!
