downender (6151) - 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.

Comments: As I write this, this is the highest rated beer in Austria. I can imagine why. They serve it in a classy Köstritzer-like cup and it looks great in it. Dark bronze with an eternal mountainous head – find a place where hop devil looks like that in the USA. Pleasant bitterness, evolving, full of citrus, mostly aroma hops really. Very malty and much darker than the original American hop devil and I must say feeling much better. Perhaps I’m just being influenced by the low hop dose I’ve had recently, but that would also explain why it’s so highly considered. It all makes sense I tell you, were I living in Vienna, I’d want that in my glass on a regular basis.

This is close to my ultimate beer. An extreme IPA in the American style. The whole range of hops, giving a splendid fruitiness and a crisp dry finish. The best beer in Vienna?

gunnar (5128) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2010
On tap @ the brewpub. Pours hazy golden with a big white head. Strong fruity hoppy aroma, citrus, pine and pineapple.Taste is supported by a nice medium sweet malty body, but those nice hops are the stars of this show. Smooth mouthfeel, resins and citrus, just lovely and refreshing. Dry hoppy aftertaste lasts to the end. Beer heaven!
