Nickls (1809) - SE DC, Washington DC, USA - MAY 10, 2010
(Old BA rate - tap) Poured with a two-finger thick slightly egg shell colored head...pretty frothy and left chunky lacing throughout the sample. Some bready/sweet maltiness followed by very prominant citric and cedary hop aromas. Powerfully bitter, but balance well. Great hop bitterness comes over the palate first and it is a bit earthy, citruisy, and piney at different points. Very nice complexity for the style. Good malt balance, but doesn’t come close to rivaling the hops. Medium MF, muted carbonation and more than coats the palate. Pretty high drinkability, nice flavors along with the high hop factor. A little less aggressive than it’s US namesake. Overall, pretty fantastic brew and slightly more complex that Victory’s Hopdevil, though less assertive.

armando629 (2404) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 16, 2010
Draught at the brewpub.
Hazy amber appearance with a superb, stable off-white head. Looks like a statue for the beerfoam...Citrussy, grapefruit hop aroma leads the character in the nose with a fine caramel background. Smooth mouthfeel with malt and caramel, honey, cinnamon and vanilla. And of course the powerful but well balanced hoppy flavor with a resiny-citrussy character. Dry, hoppy.fruity aftertaste with grapes and citrusses. Nice!

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 13, 2010
Draught at the brewpub. Dark amber colour with longlasting hop-induced foam. Fruity, very flowery aroma with vanilla notes and cookie dough along with traces of oranges. Doughy flavlour and restrained hop profile, with notes of oranges. Chewy mouthfeel, and after a lasting bitterness alongside a somewhat sweetish body.

Balazs (785) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2010
Amber color with an off-white head that collapses in a really strange way, creating a mountain like landscape shape. I ahve never seen that before, it’s similar to melting ice-cream. Spicy, fruity, hoppy aroma. Heavy bitterness, vinous, grapefruit in the taste. Not surprisingly, a bitter finish. Unique, characteristic. Well done.

FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - APR 2, 2010
On-tap. A - Deep hazy amber-orange color with a good sized white, foamy, and creamy head. Good retention with a nice lacing left over. S - Good amount of citrus and other golden fruit along with a touch of pine. This is matched almost equally with some caramel and bready malt smells. Very well balanced aroma. T - Similar to the smell and very well balanced. Upfront there is a lot of citrus (both orange and grapefruit) along with some other golden fruit (some apple, apricot, melon, and slight peach). Then some caramel and bready malt flavors start to come out more. The flavors come together and give a sweet candied fruit taste. Toward the end, there is some pine taste that comes out. No real bitterness, and a good amount of sweetness, even though there is a good amount of the hop flavors. M - Medium body with average carbonation. Smooth and coats the mouth and slightly drying. D - Very good drinkability. A lot of hop flavors, and pretty well balanced (slightly more sweet/malt taste). Very tasty beer that I enjoyed drinking. Notes: Very good IPA that is very tasty. Had it at the Känguruh Pub, and it was a very nice surprise in Wien.

d_a_goody (12) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2010
Cloudy amber pale ale with a big foamy head and a sharp cirtrus hit in the taste that floats over the hops. Smooth and full mouthfeel. Quite refreshing and akin to an English pale ale but with a citrus hop.

mross (169) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - FEB 17, 2010
On tap at 1516 Brewpub. Cloudy reddish amber colour with a lasting creamy white head. Wonderful floral hop aroma with notes of pine, apricot, orange and grapefruit. A strong hop flavour with caramel malt. Finish is dry and bitter but nicely refreshing. An excellent IPA!

Love this beer. Great character, sooth, crisp and refreshing with a strong citrus hop presence.

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2009
Draught at the brewpub
Hazy light amber color. Sweaty and fruity Cascade aroma. The mouthfeel is very smooth, creamy, with some malt, very light acidity and good final, where the hop brings some resins and fruits (bitter oranges). The final is weaker than expected/desired. A surprise in Austria.

judasbeer (431) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 24, 2009
Draught at the pub. Deep ambery-orange color with hazy appearance. Leaf hoppy, resinous grapfruit aroma along with rough yeasty (in a good way), bready character. The flavor is full of cascade hoppy fruitiness. It’s very grapefruity indeed. Despite the 65 IBU, it’s not bitter at all. The main mouthfeel is sweet malty, and full of resinous hops. Full bodied with creamy texture and thick, lacing head. I could drink it as an every day-drink. Nice and authentic introduction to the style of this beer for eastern european beer lovers like me.
