tcane7 (1660) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2013
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a murky orange-copper with thick beige head and laces. Nose of citrus, pine and lots of caramel malt. Solid bitterness. Very welcome after a week of nothing but pils and lagers

tomer (1647) - 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.

worldbeertaste (1610) - AUSTRIA - MAR 15, 2014
Draft at the brewpub. Hazy cloudy orange with a thin, sticky, lacy, white, super sticky head. Smells of nice freshly picked fruit - mango, peach and lemon zest with caramel and sweet malt, medium oily dry prickly body. Initial taste of hops and fruit and finishes caramel, dry with a lingering zest. Keep me coming back and top notch IPA.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown! / Waikato, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 4, 2009
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.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - DEC 28, 2011
UPDATED: APR 16, 2012 Murky orange, thick frothy head. Nose is pure cascade, slightly wet socks, orange peel, mandarin, hint of pineapple. Palate is full-on orange zest, pineapple maybe, slight grapefruit bitterness, well balanced enough. Not bad at all. Sampled again 16/04. Enjoyed it more. Or did I? Few minutes later, I still don?t quite get it. Amazing bitterness but just not fruity/juicy enough for me. Slightly "dirty" nose - cat piss etc. Not entirely unpleasant, just not for me. And now, few minutes later, I love it again!! Mandarin, grapefruit juiciness and massive pine resin. But cat pee! But hops! But cat pee! I’m SO CONFUSED.

ogreface (1344) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 5, 2013
Kinézetre teljesen rendben van. Illata igen komlós, kissé karamellás, igen élesztős, kicsit sajtos. Ízében is igen kiemelkedik ez a kicsit kék sajtos, élesztős jelleg, igen jelentős mennyiségű komlóval. Közepesen testes és bubis. Utóíze keserédes, kissé élesztős, száraz. Nem rossz, de egy kicsit összevissza az egész.

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 1, 2009
Draught at 1516 in Vienna. Cloudy dark red amber. Thick whip cream head like a Guinness. malty flavor overall with hop bite to finish. Great brewpub, great beer.

Tap @ brewpub, 02/04/14. Pours a hazy light amber with a good, yellowish-brown head. Aroma is mostly grapefruit, some resin. Taste is lightly sweet, resinous, mandarin and guava. Fairly light with decent carbonation. Smooth. Very nice.

I had to stare at this one for a while and ask what the hell was going on. A very nice try but didn’t quite have the bite of the origanal. Still a very good try and went well with my schitzel.
