Valito (31) - Oviedo, SPAIN - SEP 7, 2014
Botella 33cl. En el Lúpulo Feroz. Cerveza MUY amarga. Su sabor es muy intenso y permanece en la boca un buen rato. Esta cerveza llega a poner los pelos de punta. Muy buena si te gusta el estilo

1FastSTi (3341) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Delicious, but extremely bitter. Glowing hazy body that is a deep amber. A creamy tan bubbly head sits on top. The flavor is deeply toasty with a bitter grassy hop. Very bitter, but it had enough malt to provide some balance.

minutemat (1880) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2014
330ml bottle from Beermoth. Pours amber with big frothy white head. Massive citrus and pine aroma. Taste is jarring and hugely bitter of course, but perhaps more drinkable and sweeter than expected due to a big pine DIPA character. Interesting and perhaps preferable over Brewdog’s Jackhammer.

andrepintado (1570) - Lisbon, PORTUGAL - AUG 30, 2014
33cl bottle from cerveteca. Color is copper. Head is medium and white. Bitterness is high. Aroma is hoppy, fruity, resin, wood.

Now we have a beer with too much of everything! Perhaps those Mikkeller guys were just joking when they brewed this.

From 12.75oz bottle (thanks, Rob) Pours a murky dark yellow - good thing I was warned to shoulder-pour. Smoother than a 1000 IBU beer should be - I expected my tongue to be melting, but it isn’t.

Klimaet (298) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark cloudy amber with an offwhite big frothy head. Aromas of pines and very grassy hops up front. Slightly caramel-ish. Taste is SO hoppy up front. Even more than I remembered. It’s pretty smashing. Lots of pine, some caramel and very much grass and some earth. I’d sure like this fresh at some point. This was about 4 months old, sadly.

Xavalias (172) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy dark amber to brown with a big creamy, yellowish, persisting head. Pellets of yeast floating up and down. Nose is fruity, freshly pressed orange juice, sour candies. Strong hoppy aroma: bitter grapefruit, caramel, toffee, some pine resin, turning fruity, dark ripe fruits. Strong malt base. Taste is highly bitter of course, but not as much as one would expect due to the very sweet balance. Full bodied, oily, very long hoppy aftertaste. Exactly as advertised, bold even by Mikkeller’s standards, but not very drinkable.

jookos (2625) - FINLAND - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle. Hazy darker orange, lots of trubby stuff in the bottle. Hoppy nose. Green resinous, with oranges, green berries, some cat pee. Rather dark though, more of a dark foresty piney than fresh fruity. Fullish body. very intense, with a long hoppy finish. Pine needles, caramel malts. Bitter. Has a lot of sweetness, but it gets washed away with the bitters.

tryonqc (21) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 12, 2014
Good bitterness. This is the beer if you to make your friends experience bitterness. It is not really made to have interesting hop aroma so don’t expect much. One thing for sure is you’re gonna have your taste buds overloaded with bitterness. Alcohol is well hidden and the sweetness is medium. A must try, at least once.
