Picked this up for the novelty of 1000 IBU. WOW, you get a whiff of this one as soon as you open er up. Resin, grapefruit, very fresh smelling. Somehow the malt powers through to actually stand up to the bitterness, which was a shock. This is a huge beer, all around. Really well balanced (the ABV is not very apparent here) and just a pleasure to drink.

shoulderbroken (3664) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 28, 2012
Bottle at home. Maybe a touch old but still with a big kick. Bronze colour with fluffy golden head. Aroma is resinous hops, lots. Touch of carmel malt too but overwhelmed by the bitterness. Taste is nice. Maybe mellowed a touch. Nice malty body, initial big bitterness but after a few sips becomes more manageable. Bit of citrus, grassy too. Big bitterness lurking. Pretty nicel, one is enough. Good though.

BRW (2248) - Barcelona, SPAIN - DEC 25, 2012

Yorker (1934) - Herning, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2012
37.5 cl bottle @ home. Pours cloudy dark amber with some sediment and a huge white head that leaves a ton of lacing. Aroma is pine, resin, pepper, grapefruit, and caramel. Flavour is pine, resin, grapefruit, and caramel – with a bitter finish. ABV is pretty well hidden.

tlind2 (1577) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle. Opaque amber color, lasting off-white head. Heady aroma of piny hops. Strong hoppy flavor with a lingering grapefruit and resin finish. Full body, medium carbonation. Reminiscent of Nogne's DIPA: a fine example of an outrageous style.

TheCametron (2347) - CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 20, 2012
Keg at Zubaty Pes. Pours a hazy Orange with an orage flecked White head. Fantastically hoppy with distinct tropical fruit and pine. The bitterness is pretty overwhelming. IT was still delicious though. An experience beer.

jfb (5454) - Freising, GERMANY - DEC 19, 2012
(draught) pours a murky amber-brown colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of heavy caramel, mango, roasted malts and light milk chocolate, slightly resinous and sweaty. flavour is mostly the same, caramel, herbal hops and faint tropical fruit, too sweet, with a lingering heavy-bitter finish. heavy-bodied with soft carbonation.

jonnyguns (1105) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 14, 2012
Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a deep copper. Aromas of citrus, grapefruit and some pine. Smells really fruity and hoppy! Taste of piney hops, citrus and a heavy malt backbone. Huge hops and leaves a really long bitter aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

lets go ahead and open this baby ! nice that they have a label underneath the wrap as well, love it ! pours dark amber, slow fading white foam that isnt extreme like in other IPA’s ( in being big i mean) smell is bitter hops, definetly, yet not as overwhelming as i’d expect it to be taste is.. waaw, the best job ever on the carbo ! very very nice hoppy taste, even fruity ! aftertaste is pundingly bitter, hell yeah, that IS great ! definetly one hell of a good IPA !
