COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like your beer bitter? Getting tired of inventing zesty kitchen tricks trying to spike your beer in search for that fulfilling kick in the palate? Look no further as 1000 IBU was brewed to satisfy all hop-heads with a craving for some serious back-burning action.

Bottle. Pours with a murky brown body and a large khaki head. Good lace. Aroma of orange, grass, caramel, lots of hop volatiles. Some brown sugar. Taste is dry, grassy, bitter, some caramelized notes. Not really getting anything close to "1000 IBU" bitterness wise, or even with hop aroma/flavor. Some pine, nettles, light vegital qualities. Medium bubbles. A somewhat sweet finish.

aaaahhhhh, shoot; I think I mighta got a bottle that just ain’t up to snuff. Poured with a nice thick, foamy, frothy medium sized light tan head and some lace. Color is and yellowish brown with LOTS of tan chunks of sediment floating in suspension. Aroma is funky, leather, yeast, hops, butterscotch, caramel, malt, sweat. Flavor is pretty much like nose. Body is kind of heavy and well carbonated. Odd barnyard flavors in the finish that aren’t that pleasing. Sure looks kinda crazy, like it’s got a disease with spots. And what with the smell and taste... I’d like to try another.

RasmusOtt (962) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2010
Pours hazy brown with a beige/white head. Smell is grassy and earthy hops, a bit alcohol and some caramel malts as it warms. The taste is grassy hops, grapefruit, caramel malts and a bit alcohol at the end. There is a dry and sharp mouthfeel to this aswell, along with a big and solid body. A heavy pale ale. YES!

(Bottle from Systembolaget) Poured brown and cloudy. Head was medium sized and it was shaded with brown. Arom contained lot of hops and some caramell and malts. Palate was dry and full bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were hops, malts, bitterness, mustiness and mildly sweetness. Aftertaste was bitter and malty.

The Dan Journal #358. Tasted 6/24/10. 12.7oz bottle. Hazy with an amber hue. Moldy off-white head. Aromas of grapefruit and random other citrus fruits with piney and grassy notes. A very deep hoppy nose! Full bodied and hop dominant. Rather hot in the burn department as well. Grassy and green hops. Modest effervescence. Decently blended with a big citrus bitterness. A ton of grapefruit flavor. Overt and big.

j12601 (6585) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 23, 2010
Bottle. Pours a deep murky brown with a huge creamy tanned beige head. Lots of deep caramel, some light citrus hops. Medium bodied, lots more caramel, a slight bit of oxidization, and a whole lot of big bitterness. More big grapefruit and quinine bitterness and a slow growing warming alcohol on the finish with some more caramel. Not what I was expecting at all, but tasty either way.

Bottle from Healthy Spirits. Pours reddish copper with a rich apricot head and a toffee and pine aroma. There is a delicious caramel malt flavor with serious hop bitterness. A nice brew.

Bottle:
Pours a muddy dark brownish amber with a large head. Aroma is shampoo, hops and some liquorice. Thick mouth feel. Flavour resin, pine and some toffee. As expected this is really bitter, but in a pleasant way.
