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.

Mad_Ferret (644) - SWEDEN - JUL 23, 2014
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.

TheCametron (1777) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 11, 2014
Keg at 1516. Pours cloudy Orange Brown with a lasting White head. Very fresh hop flavour. Pine and grapefruit. Thick with lots of residual, bitty hops. Very flavoursome.

bunget (535) - 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.

Erasmus_ro (1304) - Alabama, USA - APR 7, 2014
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.

worldbeertaste (1619) - 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.

BiffNilsson (202) - Perstorp, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2014
Bärnstensfärgad med fluffig vit krona. Doften är frisk och syrlig men bär dessvärre på en lätt ton av spya. Smaken är frisk och syrlig på en bastant maltbas. Påtaglig beska och lång efterbeska. Riktigt god öl doften till trots.

Saeglopur (299) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - FEB 15, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2014 Draught at the brewpub. Orange, hazy body with medium, creamy, white head, that leaves some lacing. Aroma is one of the most unique I have experienced in an IPA so far, with dominant flowers, also grass, grapefruit, orange and lots of malt notes. Taste is with about the same aromas, starting sweet and citric, with a strong, dry, grapefruit like bitterness kicking in pretty soon. Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with lively carbonation and it finishes bitter, dry with grapefruit and grass notes. Although I’m a fan of more fruity IPAs, this is just an outstanding brew and a very unique IPA, that gives more room for flowery, dry and malty notes. Brilliant!

Nice looking copper ale. Hoppy, but not too hoppy. Somewhat bitter, yet enjoyable finish. Good steak beer.

Mild and deceptively alcoholic. Has a nice grass and pine aroma and moderate bitterness.

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