4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2010 Notes from 7/10/05. Pours a copper-brown color, medium-bodied, with a nice head and lacing left on the glass. Aroma is fruity with a nice hoppiness. Sweet, somewhat spicy flavors with a nice bitter hoppy bite. Finishes a bit bitter and dry. It’s by no means the strongest IPA I’ve had but it’s quite solid. Glad I stumbled upon this one.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draught at the brewpub. Pours a dense dark gold color with a frothy white head. Hoppy aroma. Medium body, early hoppy flavor matched with supporting malt. Sligjtly dry,hoppy finish.
Not quite as "crisp" as the "Victory" version, but great application of hops and a nice resulting Pale Ale.
