FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - APR 2, 2010
On-tap. 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.

Frothmeister (546) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2011
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.

Illini08 (542) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 13, 2008
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.

bunget (506) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2014
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.

rozsoma (462) - HUNGARY - MAY 28, 2012
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.

I wasn’t a big fan of this, way over hopped to me with not enough of a hop character.

Philip (436) - Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2009
It’s worth a special trip to try this and to reflect on the differences between the version brewed here and the one back in the States. I’m not a big fan of Hop Devil to begin, but this was an enjoyable beer that paired well with the food. One would be hard pressed to tell a difference in the appearance between the two, although I thought on the palate that this came out maltier than the U.S. version, i.e. more caramel with bitter orange than the more hops dominated American version. A nice beer, and a nice respite from all the lagers and pilsners I had been drinking until then.

judasbeer (431) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 24, 2009
Draught at the pub. Deep ambery-orange color with hazy appearance. Leaf hoppy, resinous grapfruit aroma along with rough yeasty (in a good way), bready character. The flavor is full of cascade hoppy fruitiness. It’s very grapefruity indeed. Despite the 65 IBU, it’s not bitter at all. The main mouthfeel is sweet malty, and full of resinous hops. Full bodied with creamy texture and thick, lacing head. I could drink it as an every day-drink. Nice and authentic introduction to the style of this beer for eastern european beer lovers like me.

dunkpigen (379) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2008
Tap @ 1516 Brewing Company, Vienna. Pours reddish/hazy amber with a nice offwhite frothy/creamy head. Aroma is fruity - grapefruit, pine and hops. Mouthfeel is soft and creamy with a flavour of hops and some caramel with a nice long aftertaste. Very nice!

madsenbryg (371) - Holstebro, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2010
rigtig god og fyldig IPA, smag af humle, korn, halm, grape, fyrrenĺl, harpiks. rřdlig, uklar med hvidt tćt skum. Lidt sřd og meget bitter. Třr og livlig.
