Draught @ 1516. Hazy golden orange with lovely thick head. Flowery hop aroma. Unusual creamy texture with modest carbonation. Sweet malt foretaste with hint of citrus / orange and long strong bitter finish. An excellent beer.

On tap; an amazing IPA in the heart of Europe. This was an awesome change from all the German beers. Color was orange with a foamy head, just like the picture. Aroma of citrus and flowers. Flavor was great. I write "whole leaf" for some reason as well as hoppy and citrus. Just a yummy beer.

Itís worth a special trip to try this and to reflect on the differences between the version brewed here and the one back in the States. Iím not a big fan of Hop Devil to begin, but this was an enjoyable beer that paired well with the food. One would be hard pressed to tell a difference in the appearance between the two, although I thought on the palate that this came out maltier than the U.S. version, i.e. more caramel with bitter orange than the more hops dominated American version. A nice beer, and a nice respite from all the lagers and pilsners I had been drinking until then.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2009 Draught at the brewpub: A hazy reddish amber colour with a foamy, off-white head. Grapefruity, pungent citrus and yeasty aromas - the yeast is a bit dominant but settles after while. The taste is of fruity/resinous/piney/citrus hops, with a stable malt backbone. It has a medium body and a dry, pronounced bitter finish. Simply lovely and one of my favourites already.

spicy hop flavour, but boring after a while, to much and to mainstream, lively carbonation, good foam, dry mouthfeeling, sorry
