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.

I kind of thought this one would fall down, and it did. The unknown months in the can have hurt this one.

It pours a deep, cloudy light brown. It looks funky and scary, but I like that. There is load of lacing too. The aroma is a funkfest. Malts from who-knows-where mashing around in a can. It doesn't get any better until it leaves a bitter aftertaste laced with metallic funk.

Not recommended..

Pours murky and spotted with coagulated proteins but with an ample eggshell head. Smells like caramelized onions, blood orange and decaying pine. Taste is bitter and very vegetal. Carbonation and mouthfeel is fine. Something is wrong here. It’s from the Adventist’s hasn’t been in my possession long but maybe fell off the truck somewhere before making it in my box. I hope that’s the case, orherwise this is an awful
IPA no matter which sub style it was attempting...

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.

500 ml can (that expires in 3/2019!), advent day 19, poured into a pint glass. A cloudy amber/orange, with two and half fingers of bubbly head. Aroma is citrus, dough and malt. The taste is grassy, with mild citrus and some toffee and tea notes. The mouthfeel is somewhat thin and watery, but not overly so, with a medium level of carbonation. Can't say I have ever had an Austrian IPA to know what to compare it to, and was expecting more of English style IPA, but this seems to sit somewhere in the middle of American and English style. Worth a go.

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!

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!

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 Pine and further 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 smoothly carbonated

This is an above average American IPA that represents the style pretty well. In Austria you can now get your American hop treat from a local producer at a fair price. Enjoy!

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.

2017 update: Same
