3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden brew with a pure cascades aroma. Unfortunately, in my view, the beer is too heavily hopped and this makes it a bit of a difficult one to drink - beer shouldn't be hard work! Overly bitter too, and although the cascades are very prominent, they are just too heavily used for me. Very bitter and citrussy finish. (Draught at 1516, Vienna)

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tapped at brewery in Vienna. Hop devil no doubt! Aroma is hoppy, color light brown, completely hazy, thick creamy head. Taste is hoppy, however no west coast style, but a goog old english style IPA. Overall hoppy and very tasty!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brew pub in Vienna.
Cloudy amber with a nicotine yellowed head.
Fruity sweet aroma with dried apricot, figs, lychee, fruit purée, some pine and blackcurrant leaves.
Medium bodied, soft carb, sticky texture.
Decent IPA in the more rougher american range. Feels a bit like an Amager brew, just not as well executed.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A - Deep hazy amber-orange color with a good sized white, foamy, and creamy head. Good retention with a nice lacing left over.
S - Good amount of citrus and other golden fruit along with a touch of pine. This is matched almost equally with some caramel and bready malt smells. Very well balanced aroma.
T - Similar to the smell and very well balanced. Upfront there is a lot of citrus (both orange and grapefruit) along with some other golden fruit (some apple, apricot, melon, and slight peach). Then some caramel and bready malt flavors start to come out more. The flavors come together and give a sweet candied fruit taste. Toward the end, there is some pine taste that comes out. No real bitterness, and a good amount of sweetness, even though there is a good amount of the hop flavors.
M - Medium body with average carbonation. Smooth and coats the mouth and slightly drying.
D - Very good drinkability. A lot of hop flavors, and pretty well balanced (slightly more sweet/malt taste). Very tasty beer that I enjoyed drinking.
Notes: Very good IPA that is very tasty. Had it at the Känguruh Pub, and it was a very nice surprise in Wien.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at brewpub. A cloudy amber with a good sized frothy white head. Aromas of caramel, citrus (especially grapefruit), pine, and faint yeast. Big opening from the hops, followed by some faint malt peeking through, with lots of bitter grapefruit in the finish. Solid stuff.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Cloudy orange body, small white head. Sour and cheesy aroma, citrus, orange caramels. Strongly bitter taste: floral hops, pine, grapefruit zest, caramel malt. Too simple.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 mL pour on tap at the brewpub on 6/4. Deep copper red/red color with a 2-finger white head. Nice citrus hop aroma. It was somewhat difficult for me to really hone in on the aroma since they were in the process of brewing a batch of beer no more than 15 feet away from my table, but the Cascade hops really came through in the nose. Lots of citrus and somewhat piney hops. Plenty of malt to back up the hop schedule made this a really top notch IPA. Went great with a cheeseburger! I can understand why this is the top rated beer in Austria.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
3rd Wiener Bierfest, Vienna, Austria. Sampled by Kis Salétrom and Szebeni Ászok.
SZÁ: Hát igen, a végére egy ilyen komoly IPA-t bevállalni igen irigylésreméltó feladat, de hát azért vagyunk itt, én csak élni akartam, de most már győzni kell. Kegyetlenmód szipolyozza az emberben megmaradt utolsó csepp életerőt is, hidratációra késztet, de fantasztikusan hozzá elő magából az IPA ismertető jegyeit. Istenkeáldásos főzet. Ámen.
KS: A nap IPA-ja.

3.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I wasn’t a big fan of this, way over hopped to me with not enough of a hop character.
