MunBro (364) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 6, 2014
Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, pine, bitterness. Despite a perfect pour into a spigleau IPA glass this had a fist size amount of foamy head that stayed for a long time. Lots of sediment too. At this point I havenít actually tried it yet as I am waiting for the 3 inches of head to settle... 10 mins later and we are down to 1 finger of head. Getting a solid 2 for appearance due to the inconvenience. Great hop bite here. Nice flavours of grapefruit, citrus, hops, and a mild malt backbone to brace the alcohol. Nice blast of citrus hops with the double IPA hit of IBUs. Obviously not 1000 (Iíd guess 105-115) but the title is humorous. Overall a great beer, wasnít a fan of the crazy head but this was probably the best I have ever had from Mikkeller.

Smalle (112) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 4, 2014
Bottle BBF 2016. Pours a cloudy amber with a bit flocculation. Aroma: lots of hops (citrus and pine). Taste: Huge hops, very bitter, but drinkable. It only becomes a bit rough in the finish. Not as extreme as expected. Nice beer to taste, but not one Iím likely to drink on a regular basis.

jandd1983 (2572) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 4, 2014
It poured a dark hazy orange/amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was of peach, grapefruit, caramel, floral and bubblegum. The taste was bitter and sweet as the bitterness sticks to your palate for ages. Interesting.

On tap at the Hoppy Pub, Thessaloniki. Pouurs dark orange, hazy with a creamy thick head, almost beige. Aromas of hops, caramel, grapefruit and bisquit. Taste is sweet malts and caramelish in the start, hoppy, pine, fruity and really bitter in the end. Soft carbonation, medium to full body. The aftertaste is bitterness from the huge ammount of hops... Loved it !!!

GenkiGonzo (274) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 25, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2014 Bottle from CBB. Light brown with big beige head, lasts a long time. Aroma is hops, hops and more hops...also a hint of grapefruit. Flavour has some caramel and malts, but almost insignificant in comparison to the hop bitterness. Way more balanced than I expected given the name.

12.7 oz bottle poured into a Spiegelau tulip. Dark orange-ish brown with a good three fingers of off-white head. Nice lacing as the head fades away. Aromas of citrus, biscuit, toast, floral notes. Tastes of citrus, big floral and bitter hops, pine, caramel. Medium body with a dry finish. Malty mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Fairly smooth for the ABV.

Benzai (8234) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2014
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus. Hazy reddish color, full sized dense beige head that lasts forever it seems. Aroma is malts, hops, decently fruity. Taste malts, hops, very bitter. Lingering bitterness. Well, I expected a totally unbalanced extremely bitter beer, but itís actually quite good. IF you like bitter beers of course.

Bottle @ home. Hazy dark amber to ruby colour with a medium to full sized off-white head. Smells hops, grassy, marijuana, fresh, slightly floral and very fruity. Amazing smell! Tastes bitter, hops, fresh, grapefruit. I love these kind of beers. Medium to full body, nice carbo.
