3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at 1516. Murky, lovely full murky amber body with a lasting white head. Creamy, hoppy aroma, notes of citrus fruits. Reminded non beer geek friends of mine of sirnica/pinca/uskršnja pogača - a type of panettone-like (yet emptier) Easter sweet bread thing. The taste, however, is a one way lane, the nice citric hopiness making a repeat appearance in a body that’s lighter than it deserves before leading into a bitterish finish. Yeah, I kinda agree that it’s more of an APA than IPA, and anything rye might’ve given is way too subdued for its own good. After trying Victory again, the Styrian Pils & now this... has 1516 taken a slight turn for worse? I really do hope it hasn’t. Now I’m a bit sad I didn’t order Eejit, another favorite, as well - to check. Oh well.

Draft at the brewpub. Hazy medium orange with a medium to thick, tan disappearing head. Smells of grapefruit, wheat, yeast and orange peel. Some tropical fruit too. Medium dry oily body with medium carbonation. Orange zest is noticeable on the taste with malt, grapefruit, bread and caramel. Some tropical fruity hops and rye. Decent enough rough IPA. I would maybe call it an APA but that’s just me

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap @ brewpub, 02/04/14. Pours a hazy dark orange with a good-sized, thick, yellowish brown head. Aroma is a very nice tropical fruitiness. Taste is not very bitter. Light grapefruit, rye and caramel, fairly spicy. Rye rises up to the on the aftertaste. Not very IPA-like.

First of all it´s smells really bad. It doesn´t tast like an IPA at all, which wouldnt be a problem if it wasn´t so goddamn bland and boring. Yeasty, some hops in the palate, but really inoffensive so it tastes like nothing at all. I didn´t finish this one, which, considering the notorious cheapass that i am, says a lot.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the brewpub. Dark orange/brownish, cloudy body, with small, creamy, white head, that quickly disappears completely. Shy aroma of grapefruit, orange, rye, some tropical fruits. Tastes of rye, bubblegum, bitter orange zest, passion fruit, mango, biscuit. Mouthfeel is medium, slick, with a low carbonation and it finishes bitter, with orange zest and tropical fruits. While the nose is nothing special, the taste is really good, unique, with lots of interesting aromas, a nice smoothness and a good hop bite at the same time. Tasty!
