Pours a dark burnt orange. Aromas are very malty and dank. Flavours are bitter..quite so. Very green vegetal bitterness. Sweet caramel malts. Good. MarkoNm (2699) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - DEC 26, 2014
Pours a hazy dark amber color, topped with average off-white head. Pleasant citrusy aroma. Taste starts sweet with immediate and fairly strong hoppy bitterness. Some spices also in there. Very nice. mariuspoenari (2637) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2015
One of the first IPAs I have tried, and was lucky enough to get it fresh from the tap in Vienna, Austria. Hazy orange, white head. Huge grapefruit aroma, with pine hops, as well. Bitter and refreshing, delicious with pine, citrus and honey notes. msbernac (2558) - Krakow, POLAND - AUG 29, 2014

Poured with a two-finger thick slightly egg shell colored head...pretty frothy and left chunky lacing throughout the sample. Some bready/sweet maltiness followed by very prominant citric and cedary hop aromas. Powerfully bitter, but balance well. Great hop bitterness comes over the palate first and it is a bit earthy, citruisy, and piney at different points. Very nice complexity for the style. Good malt balance, but doesn’t come close to rivaling the hops. Medium MF, muted carbonation and more than coats the palate. Pretty high drinkability, nice flavors along with the high hop factor. A little less aggressive than it’s US namesake. Overall, pretty fantastic brew and slightly more complex that Victory’s Hopdevil, though less assertive.

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. armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 16, 2010
Draught at the brewpub.Saeglopur (2145) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - FEB 15, 2014
Hazy amber appearance with a superb, stable off-white head. Looks like a statue for the beerfoam...Citrussy, grapefruit hop aroma leads the character in the nose with a fine caramel background. Smooth mouthfeel with malt and caramel, honey, cinnamon and vanilla. And of course the powerful but well balanced hoppy flavor with a resiny-citrussy character. Dry, hoppy.fruity aftertaste with grapes and citrusses. Nice!
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! fajry (2040) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 4, 2015
Výčap 1516. Mútna tmavo oranžová farba, pena skoro žiadna (spôsobené čapovaním). Vôňa ovocná, jemne korenistá. Chuť na začiatku ostrá, sladká, jemne karamelová, ovocná. Horká dochuť. Pivo dosť nevyvážené s prázdnejším telom. shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 11, 2007
