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.

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.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 6, 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.

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!
