Theydon_Bois (8100) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle at home, from BD Online, 01/07/14. Murky amber brown with a big old egg shell white/light beige head. Nose is piss stained nettles, ear wax, pine, bitter bitter citric peel, tarte red grapefruit, caramel backnotes, blood orange. Taste comprises some big fucking bitter lickings, intense pine flavours, red grapefruit and gin, sprucey wood shavings, Schweppes bitter lemon, Angostura bitters, orange pithtastic. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, big hop bitter licks in the close. Had this on tap a few years back, pre rating days ... in fact I started ticking Mikkeller beers in 2011 for shits & giggles and got to 100+ - I digress, and remembered enjoying this one. The intense bitterness in this one, if that’s your bag, really keeps it drinkable and refreshing and masks the ABV. Above decent uber hopped DIPA.

Poured from bottle into snifter. Dark orange, almost brown in color. Nice, off-white head. Scent and taste are just what you would expect: all hops. It is crazy bitter, and it lingers for a while. Somehow avoided skunking, even in a green bottle (or maybe its just so bitter I can’t tell). Gets a little malty as it gets warmer, but not much. Overall, not bad. Definitely a unique/ interesting beer, glad I could try it. Side note: my bottle says "1000 IPA", which is kind of odd.

zimbo (553) - SCOTLAND - JUN 25, 2014
Great big pine intrusively bitter nose. Super easy big dense rockycreamy block of head. Hazy reddish brown colour. Some fizz& acidity to start before all the oenetrating tingly brutal bitterness comes into force. And fantastic delicate and complex lacing.

kevinsenn (1055) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle, purchased to celebrate my 1000th rating. Thick cloudy amber with some chunks in it. Grassy and citrus aroma with some malty sweetness. Starts off with caramel malty sweetness. Moves into - big surprise - massive bitterness that grows and grows. The bitterness is intense, but its actually pretty enjoyable. Thick body. An experience for sure.

Baton (33) - Łódź, POLAND - JUN 18, 2014
Bottle. Aroma of American hops, citrus, pine, fruits. When it’s get warmer a bit of alcohol too. Taste: very intensive bitter. And some more bitter. Grapefruit, citrus and some malts. No alcohol in taste. Oily texture, medium body. Long bitter finish. Interesting beer.

Procent (63) - POLAND - JUN 15, 2014
Mocne aromaty chmielowe, przebija się przez to trochę słodu i alkoholu. Czuć, że to DIPA. Bardzo ładny lacing, chociaż piana nie jest zbyt obfita. Piwo jest nieprzejrzyste, zawiera bardzo dużo osadu, bez którego ciężko nalać nie tyle całość, co nawet większą część. Smak to potężna dawka chmielu, przez którą przebija się trochę alkoholu. Goryczka potężna, nie za bardzo czymś równoważona, ale przez to jest to ciekawe doświadczenie. Piwo pełne w smaku, wysycenie średnie, ku wysokiemu, wg. mnie nieco zbyt duże.

vanelst (122) - AUSTRIA - JUN 11, 2014
Can´t get over the rather unpleasant extremely dry and overly bitter finish of this one. Why should i even care to write about the taste and the aroma of this when it´s get trampled by a tsunami of bitterness that just washes all the good stuff about this beer away? Overpriced and overrated.

RobertDale (3393) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JUN 4, 2014
330 ml. bottle. Pours a thick, cloudy golden orange with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and malt. Taste is grapefruit, pine, caramel, and malt. Kind of overwhelming, but drinkable for sure. Worth taking a chance on.

M82 (275) - Kansas, USA - MAY 30, 2014
A murky dark dried mango body sits beneath a light tan frothy smooth head leaving dense, intricate, resilient lace

Intense citric qualities, lemon, grapefruit, blood orange, zesty and juicy, peach and mango, mild nutty caramelly malt hangs on for the ride, hop pie, all on a silky smooth, lightly carbonated medium body building into intense acidic residuals

12.7oz bottle code 6721312 with second generation graphics served at 45° into TeKu
