This beer won a price for best Austrian IPA this year and I guess it deserves it, though I would like to mention that there are not many beers of this style available in Austria. I bought it at the brewery and I had a couple of them the last months.

Not clear not murky it is a lighter amber color of the body that shows some medium bubbled carbonation. Foam is almost white, it is fluffy, fine, really stable and leaves lacing

Fruity American hops of the pine, pineapple and honey melon aroma.

Taste also dominated by the fruity hops but there is also some sweetness from the malt that keeps the balance with the bitterness that only dominates towards the end when beer gets dry. Bitterness lingers for a while.

Body is medium and feels a little undercarbonated.

This is an above average American IPA that represents the style pretty well. However there is nothing about it to make it special. Good thing is, if you live in Austria you can now get your American hop treat from a local producer at a fair price. Enjoy!

this is a wonderfully different take on an ipa, and a lovely cultural fusion of brewing styles and ingredients. big thanks to drlovemd87 for this one, not sure i would have tried an austrian brewed ipa anytime soon. the color on this is glorious, glowing somewhere between beet red and honey orange, its alive and fiery looking, with a soft and subtle inch of permanent bone white head. it smells like german grains, well toasted, and american hops, dripping with alpha acids. definitely not what i expect when these central european breweries take on such styles, its so big, so true to what we love about ipa, but with a well crafted european twist, in this case the grain bill. the flavor is awesome too, a great journey that starts with medium bodied caramel grains, and almost like a dry irish red in impresion, but moving quickly into a just bitter enough lush plant-like hop profile, vegetal and fresh, not citrusy at all, but with a mild fruity note. its a large beer in feel, fuller bodied but carbonated well enough with those tiny little bubbles that never relax. its one of the more robust and better constructed non-american india pale ales ive had, and if it were available here i think people would get real pumped on it. this is exceptional, a nice surprise, and a beer i cannot recommend highly enough!

Pours hazy dark orange, floating bits, nice small white head that turns to long lasting lacing fast.
Smell of caramel and fruity American hops (tangerine, peach, some low pine), nice and balanced.
And so is the taste. Lots of tangerines, sweet juicy peaches, mixed with caramel and some biscuity malts, followed by a flash of pine that brings quite a bitter finish. Some floral hints and vanilla throughout.
Smooth body, low carbonation. The hops don't wreck the palate, bringing their herbal bitterness in the finish just for a short while, the fruitiness "restarts" with each sip.
Great one, really nice balance, great show of hops. Wouldn't really expect such a good AIPA from an Austrian brewer, but here it is.
