tmrmwel (1759) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 16, 2016
On tap @ Mikkeller, København. Pours dark golden orange, with a small creamy head. Aroma is resin and pine, as well as a solid backbone of roasted malts with bread and toffee. Full body, with soft to average carbonation. Flavour is caramel malts with with bread and toffee notes, as well as ever growing and lingering bitter hoppy notes of oranges, resin and pine.

badwhale (419) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2016
Bottle to tulip glass. Pours a cloudy dark copper with a thick tan head. Nose of, well, hops. Piney citrus, and very dank. :) Very bitter, obviously, but the thing is how long it stays on the palate. Long, long finish. Pretty delicious.

Cataklinsmann (15) - milano, ITALY - MAY 13, 2016
Estrema ipa. X chi ama l’amaro é un’esperienza da provare... Amaro deciso lungo e persistente. Tenore alcolico alto non particolarmente nascosto ma pericoloso

Hamirubi (564) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 12, 2016
7.5cl sample at the Ghent Beer Festival VI (22 VIII 2015). Amber coloured IPA with a lovely peachy taste and real indian pale ale bitterness. The citrus and bitter features are so very good and tasteful, really coming forth in the ending too. Heavy! Perfect imperial styled IPA, this Mikkeller 1000 IBU.

kajser27 (1359) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 8, 2016
Unclear with some floaters, deep amber-copper colored, strong beige frothy head, good lacing and long lasting. Aroma is very fruity, some caramel candy, sweet, tropical fruits, pine and light citrus. Taste is medium to very sweet caramel malt, bit crystal malt, medium to strong hoppiness, tropical fruits, floral pine and grapefruit, very strong bitterness with a dry finish and lasting bitter aftertaste. Medium to full bodied, average carbonation, resiny. (bottle, Vrutak Zagreb)

artemb (660) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - MAY 6, 2016
Aroma: rotten citrus, caramel, toffee, prominent alcohol notes. Taste: moderate to strong malt sweetness, strong hoppy bitterness with some spicy grassy bitternes. Flavour: citrus, pine, rotten sweet fruits, alcohol. Not sure about 1000, but it is very bitter with good sweet malt background.

ebone1988 (1371) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - MAY 5, 2016
Aroma is bitter pine, tropical fruit, malt, booze, very in your face. Appearance is copper/brown, hazy as hell, light tan head that is quite frothy for the style and abv. Taste is very bitter, tons of malt, pine, tropical fruit, citrus, booze. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, astringent bitterness in the aftertaste. Overall, this was about the bitterness I expected, and balanced enough to be drinkable, but holy shit is it an ugly IIPA.

SlovakSniper (5071) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 3, 2016
(33 cl. BB 28/09/17) Cette bière rousse se coiffe d’une énorme mousse infatigable qui fabrique une dentelle très épaisse. Le nez intense de conifères et d’agrumes est bien régularisé par un lot de céréales caramélisées. Au goût, le pamplemousse, la résine, l’alcool, les fleurs et les grandes herbes très vertes et très amères me font pour un instant oublier complètement la proposition douce des grains maltés. En bouche, le corps est rond et le pétillement modéré. La texture est huileuse à souhait. En finale, la résine est tenace et la mandarine amère montre un côté givré. Solide proposition houblonnée. Ceci n’est pas un chef-d’œuvre mais un geste brassicole précis que plusieurs brasseries tentent en vain de créer. Voilà souvent la force de cette brasserie nomade déguisée en empire.

BobyFischer (300) - FRANCE - APR 26, 2016
Les malts bien rôtis (robe quasi brune aux reflets rouges sombres, rubis) amortissent l’énorme amertume, arômes et saveurs de houblons sur la résine, le pamplemousse et l’herbacé. Gros corps imposant qui équilibre un déluge d’amertume sèche et astringente. Mousse peu abondante, très jaune (du jamais vu) et bien collante. Une expérience de l’extrême.
