I canít even believe that this beer is drinkable; maltier than the I Beat yoU; amazing beer worth the $13 for just over 12 oz.

Iím excited and scared to try this. Iíve heard great things about mikkeller, but so far Iím 0/2 with trying their beers. Pours hazy dark copper with big fluffy cream-colored head. Big aroma of a good IPA: grapefruit, pine, and hint of caramel. Nice full mouthfeel, a touch on the chewy side. Great flavor that starts with a woody and citrussy bitterness on the tip of the tongue, grapefruit aroma is replaced with a orange peel and ripe sweet orange, piney, a bit of caramel and a lot of white bread. Just a bit of pepper from the alcohol, but not at all hot or boozy. Finishes with a great hop bitterness that balances the beer well. I expected something over the top, unpleasant, and puckering based on the name and the last beers that I tasted from Mikkeller, but this is a very nice finish. Thereís also just a touch of malty sweetness to accompany the bitterness in the end. Leaves a dirty bitterness - like apple peel-for the aftertaste.

(Old BA rate - tap Plan B) Poured with a nice-half finger of fluffy white foam that stayed nearly the whole way through the samping; great curtains of lacing really left their mark; hazy coppery brown hue, but not too hazy. Really a great looking brew. Some dank hoppiness in the aroma and then its a really interesting spectrum of hop aromas: cedar at first; then grapefruit, floral notes, and then back to a citrus aroma. Light caramel in the nose, but the hops really shine. Not nearly as aggressive as I thought, but showcases several different hop aromas. Not as bitter in the flavor either, but still pretty damn hoppy. A bit of a heavier malt backing, but not nearly sweet as some others Iíve had in the range. In another couple of months the hops would be competing too much with the malt, I think. Great range of those hops that mirror the aroma, and lead to a really dry finish. Medium body with nice carbonation, and coats the palate really well. Nice drinking DIPA, especially given the more extreme hop treatment. Would only take this one as fresh as possible.

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.

drpimento (2102) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 1, 2010
aaaahhhhh, shoot; I think I mighta got a bottle that just ainít 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 arenít that pleasing. Sure looks kinda crazy, like itís got a disease with spots. And what with the smell and taste... Iíd like to try another.

RasmusOtt (968) - 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.

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.
