2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught. Floral, spicy aroma, lots of pineapple. Very strong bitterness, lingering, unpleasant. Full body, distinct sweetness, still to no avail, as the beer lacks balance. It is supposed to shock and not to taste good, I suppose.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
341ml bottle from Plattsburgh shared with brother. Aroma: grapefruits, caramel, bitterness yep we can smell it. App: murky brown, medium thick beige head, thick head, little lacing. Taste and palate: full body, medium high sweetness, high lingering bitter finish. Overall: kudos to them for succeeding in making this 1000 ibu. It’s not great and not that fruity but it’s a well made IIPA. Added some point for the challenge.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle@Kaisla, Helsinki, Finland. Strong/medium, bold aroma with sweet mango and biscuits. Deep orange color with medium naturally white head and hazy liquid. Strong, super hoppy taste of sweet and overaged fruits like mango. Some alcohol comes trough. Balanced, but extensive amounts of hops starts to hinder. medium taste spectrum and long hoppy aftertaste with dryer fruits. Strong/medium body with light/medium carbonation. Overall, Superbly hopped DIPA that starts to show some downsides of the excessive use of hops. Still, a great taste bomb.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
