Default Shorts Key Lime Clone

Im sure Ill catch some crap for wanting to clone this, but I think its a pretty damn good tasting beer. One of those crazy flavors yeah but still. Its probably a while before I will try it out just kinda sniffin around about what to try out in a one gallon batch. Thinkin definately a light grain bill, possibly lactose for the creamy flavor and key lime zest in secondary. Anyone got any ideas?

I love shorts (going there tomorrow) but I have not been able to bring myself to try key lime pie. I've had the bloody beer and that was very good

You would be surprised on the key lime, not cloying like you might think. I did Bloody Beer and had great success with it. Its a great brewery have fun!
