3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice golden but little bit hazy color. Head is medium and it didn’t last long. Aroma full of citrus, mango and lychee. Tastes good grapefruit and resin bitterness with hinch of sweetness from malts. Body between flat and medium, soft carbonated and dry/ semi-dry. Alcohol aftertaste stays for a white but it is really gramy beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Bacchanalia, consumed at home. Orange/copper, a bin thin-looking, translucent. Not too much head. Gentle wood and resin aroma. Taste starts quite mild, but the bittersweet-umami flavour comes to the fire near the finish. Long balanced bitter aftertaste. A well made and nicely subtle IPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle, no bb, courtesy of idiosynkrasie, danke. Pours like hay-yellow dandelion honey. Smells deliciously damp, like a lemon balm-soaked lemon biscuit powdered with citrus zest also some nettle soup and dandelion milk. Taste delicately hop-engineers all of that, West-Coast style, into subtle thin layers of lemon and lime cake, separated by refreshing sheets of resinous rind and pith, as well as pollen and blossom to quench any nascent exotic sweetness. Not a dispersive hop explosion like many IPAs with mass appeal, instead more of a well-directed masterclass in microhopped precision. Delicious.

Bottle from Beer Gonzo webshop, consumed at home, Sunday 28th June 2015 Hazy yolky yellowy gold with a wispy white head. Sweet, malty but with much more going on than the Operation Vacation. Fruity with a good depth of flavour, some tropical touches here, likeable beer. A7 A3 T7 P4 Ov14 3.5
