Draught at the brewpub. Good caramelly hop aroma. The flavour is malty and caramelly, hint of hop sourness.

<i>Draught at the brewpub. </i> Cloudy amber, creamy head. Rich sweaty grapefruit aroma. Sweet with rounded mouthfeel and above medium body. Lots of piney apricoty hops and some syrup. Finishes with significant resiny bitterness. American all the way.

Excellent American IPA. Very hoppy with traces of grapefruit. Easily the best bear on tap. Best of the brew pubs in Vienna, of which there are many good ones.

downender (6523) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. Appealing reddish-amber in colour with a decent white head. Aroma of pine resin, citrus hops, oranges and a touch of red fruit sweetness. Full mouth feel, with pine hop flavours coating the mouth, accompanied by caramel, red currants, grapefruit, a slight yeastiness and a powerful dry finish. The alcohol was extremely well hidden - I didn’t notice it until I woke up the following morning with a headache. Great stuff.

Tap @ 1516 Brewing Company, Vienna. Pours reddish/hazy amber with a nice offwhite frothy/creamy head. Aroma is fruity - grapefruit, pine and hops. Mouthfeel is soft and creamy with a flavour of hops and some caramel with a nice long aftertaste. Very nice!

Tap @ 1516 Brewing Company, Vienna.
Pours nice hazy, deep amber with a big, staying, frothy/creamy off-white head. Suplime aroma, lots of hops, pine, grapefruit, citrus and flowers. Good caramel maltiness behind it. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has soft caramel, wonderful dryness in the finish. Truly well-balanced beer.

Denne version er brygget af Bill Covaleski på brewpubben 1516 i Wien, med hele humleblomster. På fad, lidt uklar ravfarvet med råhvidt tæt skum. Dufter meget af gran og lakrids og af masser af humle. smager af lakrids og karamel og masser af humle og er bare pisse god og lækker.Lang eftersmag og god fylde. Guf, guf!

500 mL pour on tap at the brewpub on 6/4. Deep copper red/red color with a 2-finger white head. Nice citrus hop aroma. It was somewhat difficult for me to really hone in on the aroma since they were in the process of brewing a batch of beer no more than 15 feet away from my table, but the Cascade hops really came through in the nose. Lots of citrus and somewhat piney hops. Plenty of malt to back up the hop schedule made this a really top notch IPA. Went great with a cheeseburger! I can understand why this is the top rated beer in Austria.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2010 Notes from 7/10/05. Pours a copper-brown color, medium-bodied, with a nice head and lacing left on the glass. Aroma is fruity with a nice hoppiness. Sweet, somewhat spicy flavors with a nice bitter hoppy bite. Finishes a bit bitter and dry. It’s by no means the strongest IPA I’ve had but it’s quite solid. Glad I stumbled upon this one.
