Cuso (4384) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 20, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2012 Tap at brewpub. Dark brown orange color with medium long lasting white head. Aroma of grapefruit, floral hops, tropical fruits, spices. Taste, starts sweet malty with tropical fruits, later on floral hops are coming. Nice long floral hops bitter finish. Excellent beer.

Marko (3904) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 3, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2014 Draught at 1516. Lovely, misty full amber body. Small thick white head. Hoppy, piney, slightly yeasty aroma. Quality I2PA. Very strong taste dominated entirely by the bitterness, dry, ashy, slightly piney. Agrumes show up as well a little. The malty background is slightly too subdued and not as full as it should be (though I kinda prefer that to a sticky bittersweet mess). Not the best one I’ve had but the ’hype’ is well deserved - or was initially when there were fewer "alternatives". 3.7 first time, 3.4-3.5 now I guess.

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.

jfb (3758) - Freising, GERMANY - MAR 20, 2011
(draught) pours a murky ruby-orange colour with a frothy off-white head. faint aroma of peaches and pineapples, sweatsocks, resin and oats. flavour is mostly the same, with lots of citrus fruits, especially limes, some light notes of caramel, bread dough and a medium bitter finish. medium-bodied with lively carbonation.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2007
Dark coppery colored, little thick yellow head. Cloudy appearance. Strongly hopped aroma, still very soft one with fruits and some caramel. Medium bodied. Flavor also has strong hops, this sweet caramel there still too. Aftertaste turns to bitter, but still sweetness dominates. Good, still rather sweet for IPA. Expected more out of this, regarding to points given.

erickok (3484) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUL 23, 2012
Woody brown, frothy head. Big hops, American style, pine, spruce, although it fades a bit, leaving a straightforward backbone. Full bitterness, and flavour.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 17, 2011
Draft at the brewpub in Vienna. Pours a dark and hazy burnt orange amber color with a thick, frothy head of off-white foam. Steadfast, the head never fully settles, and it leaves dense swaths of patchy lacing on the glass. The nose is very hoppy, showing notes of orange, grapefruit rind, and pine over a less prominen base of caramel, toffee, and baked bread crust. Flavors largely follow suit, Falling on the hoppy, bitter side of balanced, loaded with bitter, leafy citrus and pine hops, resin clinging to the tongue. Still, it is suitably countered with bready, caramelized malts. Yeast is dry and slightly crackery. The palate is substantive yet drinkable, with balanced carbonation and a relatively crisp, drying finish. Good brew. Very similar to the original. A prototypical east coast IPA.

Geiserich (3340) - Linz, AUSTRIA - APR 9, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2007 Typical ice-tee color, compact, creamy head, stable. Aroma is strong hoppy (Tettnanger+Cascade), fruity+light sour. Creamy flavor, velvety, very fruity hop note with decent acid. Aftertaste is medium to strong bitter, with a long dry finish. Superb beer, brewed from Bill Covaleski in Vienna!

kiwianer (3333) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 2, 2012
From Tap @ the Brewpub. The head is robust. It smells strong hoppy. There are a lot of different hop flavors, just a bit malty. Good IPA from Vienna! 12/11/11/12/-/12

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.
