UPDATED: NOV 21, 2015 Tap at the brewery. Aroma fruity hops, but also damp, basement, washing cloth. Hazy orange colour. The same off-flavours taint the taste as aroma. Something went wrong here. Marked for future rerate. 5 3 5 2 10 Rerate at the brewpub. Strong strong grassy, even vegetal hoppiness overwhelms the experience. Not so brutally bitter, though the bitterness is high. Rather heavy hops flavour which seems rough and unbalanced. Okay but it stays there for me.

Mild and deceptively alcoholic. Has a nice grass and pine aroma and moderate bitterness.

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.

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.

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

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.
