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.

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

On tap at the brewpub. Pours cloudy dark orange. Hoppy and citrusy aroma. Fruity flavor with pleasant hoppy bitterness. Great IPA.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - 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.

ogreface (1390) - 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.

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.

fajry (1181) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 4, 2015
Výčap 1516. Mútna tmavo oranžová farba, pena skoro žiadna (spôsobené čapovaním). Vôňa ovocná, jemne korenistá. Chuť na začiatku ostrá, sladká, jemne karamelová, ovocná. Horká dochuť. Pivo dosť nevyvážené s prázdnejším telom.

Draught at brewpub, Vienna, Austria. Poured a cloudy orangey amber with a very thin white bubble head. Laced OK. No carbonation. Aroma of orange and grapefruit. Taste with the grapefruit bitterness. Light body. Long finish with grapefruit bitterness. Very different, very nice.
