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

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 My Bottom Line:
Growing floral hop aromatics segue into sustained oranges, resinous acrobatics all around the lean caramel malts of this perky American-style India Pale Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-Sturdy foam protects the turbid dark orange, lacing quite well.
-Carbonation is pretty frothy.
-If malt flavors were better expressed, I would deem this a world-class IPA.
-The end result is perhaps not too complex, but it is highly enjoyable.
-In this part of the world, this is a marvelously executed novelty, but on a global scale, it is "just" a very satisfying IPA.

On tap at the brewpub.

Draught at 1516 Brewing Co. Vienna. Notes from July 08. Pours a beautiful reddish copper with lasting off white head. Aroma is amazing, like flowers in a pine forest and complimented with fresh citrus. After what seems like forever I finally taste the brew. The hop flavour is fantastic, the caramel malt is balanced with floral, piney and resinous hops. Mouthfeel is smooth with a dry, bitter finish. A superb brew and worthy of the number one beer in Austria.

ogivlado (5723) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 25, 2008
Draught at the brewpub.
Dark orange coloured, small white head, flowery hoppy nose. The taste is also flowery, very aromatic and fruity with notes of grapefruit and caramel. Pleasant dry finish.

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

omhper (19381) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 20, 2008
<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.
