3.94/5  rDev +2.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served in a pint glass right from the can.

Appearance: cloudy Amber color with a very thick off-white head rising about one finger's length from the body. Stays up for a bit with super sticky lacing. Bubbles to the body are Medoum at best but brew looks pretty damn good.

Smell: light hops with lemon skin.

Taste: Tasty hops and smooth floralness. Malts aren't super heavy which might make this one of the better "beginner" IPAs to have.

Mouth: Medium to heavy carbonation but drops a bit after you let it sit in the glass. Somewhat sticky but smooth.

Overall: Good brew, definitely put a smile on my face. Hopefully all of you can have the luck of finding one. Always in a glass...Salud!

Rieder poured a hazy, pale amber, probably around a 10 on the SRM scale. A decent head foamed up on the pour, and it has some staying power. The haze is somewhat surprising, and not entirely fitting for the style.

It is clear from both the smell and flavors present that this is an American style IPA. In fact, it does appear to be classified that way in several sources,including on BeerAdvocate. There is a prominent resinous smell with the hops, and a decent amount of malt on the nose. There is a strong malt backbone on the flavor; the swallow is a competition between hop bitterness and malt sweetness. I'm positive this beer wasn't barrel-aged, but I feel like I get some oak notes, particularly vanilla. These come and go, though- they aren't present on every sip.

Rieder IPA is one of my favorite beers from this calendar. Even though I constantly drink American IPAs, it is interesting to see another country take on this style. I've had better IPAs in the states, but I've certainly had worse.

Very nice old world version (Austria) of a non-English IPA. Reminiscent of Ballantine IPA, tho darker in color. December 10 from the Costco Brewers Advent Calendar. From can in Czech Dom mug.

Nice reddish orange color, and retained head, nice lacing.

Nice mild hop aroma .

Taste is full bodied, and hoppy.

Mouthfeel is full and lasting.

Would recommend this for folks tired of in your face American IPA's, or folks just starting IPA's.

Brewed by Egerer, Licensed by Rieder. From the can, it pours a hazy amber with a lovely head. Some citrus in the nose, along with a lot of malt. More malty than hoppy in the mouth. An honest effort, but not a true IPA to me. Second can came off better than the first, so adjusted it a bit.

Not sure how it was entered as an AIPA as it definitely tastes more like the old world model. Solid malt backbone with enough hop action to keep it where it should be.

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.
