Brandman (2359) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 7, 2011
Dark orange body, thick tan head, floaters. Aroma of herbal liquer, alcohol, some berries. Flavour adds belgian yeast. Even some hop profile. Bitter. No shit? But lame for 1000 IBUs due to thick body.

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 3, 2011
On tap at Crunchy’s, East Lansing. Fiery medium to dark orange-brown body, thick, puffy yellow-beige head. Hoppy, rindy, citrusy nose, somewhat catty, balanced by sweet toasty notes. Strongly bitter, rindy body, medicinal, with berries, brown sugar, toast, and tropical fruit. Has a high octane vinous sugar/alcohol kick. Unique and delicious, unified to the degree that the term "balance" seems inappropriate.

Maria (10191) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 3, 2011
It’s hazy/unclear with a creamy head, and the aroma has notes of fruit, citrus, malt, caramel, tannic acis, grapefruit and spruce. The flavour is sweet and has a good bitterness on a nice caramel base, and it has notes of citrus, mostly grapefruit, spruce, berries, grass and a bitterness, that becomes more and more astringent.

First and foremost. I don’t think I have ever had a beer more bitter than this. It was truely shocking when I took the fist sip and it hit. Had at belgian on tap. Pour is amber red with nice lasting lacing. Aroma is full of bitter sweet hops. Same in flavor.

Geiserich (3677) - Linz, AUSTRIA - MAR 30, 2011
Aroma of oak barrels, light smoky, sweet malts, caramel and candies. Also intensive notes of hops and fruitiness. Flavor is full bodied, sweet, notes of roasted malt, smoke, barrels and an intensive hop note. Also an intensive bitterness in the end, notes of hop and burnt malt, light sharp and sweet.

Thanks to Bosse for this. 375ml bottle into a tulip. The beer pours a medium brown color, murky with lots of light brown colored yeast floaties. The head rises about three fingers of tope head, good retention, and lacing...The aroma is super hoppy, tons of pine and metal, this is really over the top hoppy, too much for me...The taste is a hop bomb, its just sticky resin and hops from start to finish. Its almost so bitter it dulls the senses, but then it grows on me and I kind of like it. But its a little straight forward and simple, which it was more complex and then I’d really enjoy the taste. The start is a little malty caramel, wish that carried its way through...The feel is really nice, very heavy and lasting flavor, lots of feel on the mouth...A little tough to drink the whole bottle. Overall, this is ok, nothing special. If you’re a hop head, go for it, if not you should probably skip it.

ddemmingjr (774) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - MAR 27, 2011
Pours cloudy copper, sticky white head and lacing. Biscuits, cereal malts, floral hops with a bit of pepper on the nose. Complex hop profile, grapefruit, cedar and an interesting spiciness that makes this unique. Big taste.

BeerandBlues2 (10713) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 23, 2011
Bottle shared by dkachur at the 14th Richmond Gathering. Pours hazy amber with a medium, creamy and frothy beige head, medium-long retention with good lacing. Aroma and flavor are heavy malt (cookie, caramel, toast), heavy hops (floral, pine, citrus, grassy), and average esters (apple/pear) with notes of alcohol and pineapple. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation with a dry and biting finish.

On tap at The Brick Store. I’ve been really curious about this one for a while, though I really wasn’t expecting anything tasty. Rather than throw good taste to the wind for sake of making a devastating hop bomb, Mikkeller has made a serious bitter beer while maintaining the idea of a tasty brew. The beer is dark than I anticipated, sort of a dark copper color with a very solid head. The aroma is obviously powerfully bitter. It’s sheer raw bitterness like grapefruit extract but with less citrus and some pine needles thrown in. The flavor is good too. It’s bracingly dry with flavors of pumpernickel, burning leaves, solid hop cone and conifer. This is not a very floral IIPA. This is arguably an enjoyable sipper.

Have had this twice now, once on tap at Dekkard’s in the neighborhood a few weeks ago, and then from a bottle from Green’s shortly after. Sensational beer. Green and black burgler paper wrap a nice touch. This is not your grandmother’s Ruination IPA. Classical hazy amber pour featuring fluffy, lacy off-white head. Grapefruit, orange, apricot dominate the nose. Syrupy mouthfeel. Extra super bitter as would expect first sip. Never characterized a beer as ’woody’ before, but this one is. Think driftwood. Hyperdimensional maybe, but I like it. Will probably reach though for that Ruination when I’m in the mood for a beer like this.
