lime will raise your ph, you need to use some sort of acid, like lemon juice, or top dress with pete moss, its acidic. several companies make ph down, you should probably ph your nutes a little lower than what you need and test runoff to see what it is.

could also be heat stress, they'll do that when too hot.

i would have said that if the ends were slightly burnt or curling, but this look likes a ph twist.
