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.

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.

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

Gurthnar (2726) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - NOV 29, 2014
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.

armando629 (2442) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 16, 2010
Draught at the brewpub.
Hazy amber appearance with a superb, stable off-white head. Looks like a statue for the beerfoam...Citrussy, grapefruit hop aroma leads the character in the nose with a fine caramel background. Smooth mouthfeel with malt and caramel, honey, cinnamon and vanilla. And of course the powerful but well balanced hoppy flavor with a resiny-citrussy character. Dry, hoppy.fruity aftertaste with grapes and citrusses. Nice!

heavy (2270) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 28, 2012
19/07 On tap at the brewpub. It had hazy orange body with medium sized ocher head. Nice hoppy aroma, strong herbal and grass scents. Touch of biscuit malt becomes fully evident in the flavor. Very nicely balanced between sweet and bitter, this beer was not particularly complex but still very pleasant. Notes of wood, oranges and some toffee yeasts besides everything already mentioned. Medium to full bodied with pleasant, rich finish that ended up exactly where it started - between bitter and sweet. Nice one, almost double IPA!

Capa (2237) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - OCT 1, 2013
Copper orange with a white head. Aroma is citrus, orange, sweet fruit, light malts. Flavor is a lot of citrus and oranges, sweet fruity. High on hop flavor but the bitterness is soft. It does finish with a decent bite, though. Nice beer, but could use a better bitter bite overall.

tomer (2081) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - MAR 11, 2012
Draught at the brewpub, smallish head, hazy deepish orange colour, citrusy fruity aroma with some herbs and pine and some maltiness in the back, very strong herbal and grapefruit bitterness with a malty backbone, light sortish bitter aftertaste. Good solid IPA.
