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.

Tap at the brewery. Aroma fruity hops, but also damp, basement, washing cloth. Hazy orange colour. The same off-flavours taint the taste as aroma. Something went wrong here. Marked for future rerate.

On tap at brew pub. Pours orange pale with heavy foam. Aroma is of fresh hops citrus and grainy. Palate is a bit oily but smooth. Taste is well balanced with lots of pine and earthy hops. A very good recreation, makes me miss victory beer!

Tap at the brewpub. Pours sort of very hazy rye color (or ruddy something) with a huge beige head. Aroma is fruity hoppy. Med body. Flavor is sort of ryeish, with a fresh fruit that comes and goes. Florally bitter? Whatever. It’s delicious. Very.

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.

4.2 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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
