First and foremost. I donít 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.

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 Iíd 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 youíre a hop head, go for it, if not you should probably skip it.

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.

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. Iíve been really curious about this one for a while, though I really wasnít 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. Itís sheer raw bitterness like grapefruit extract but with less citrus and some pine needles thrown in. The flavor is good too. Itís 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 Dekkardís in the neighborhood a few weeks ago, and then from a bottle from Greenís shortly after. Sensational beer. Green and black burgler paper wrap a nice touch. This is not your grandmotherís 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 íwoodyí before, but this one is. Think driftwood. Hyperdimensional maybe, but I like it. Will probably reach though for that Ruination when Iím in the mood for a beer like this.

(Sample Date: 3/19/2011 Source:Other) Fruity floral hop aroma over moderate caramel. Mostly clear orange golden with small white head. Pineapple hop fruitiness with robust bitterness. Medium body and mouth feel. Finish is totally hop burn.

Surprisingly, the aroma is not of the intense hoppiness that a lot of DIPAs have. Itís more like a dank vegetal smell with a slight floral component. Murky amber with a tan head. The hops are strong but mostly flavoring hops and the high concentration is again more vegetal than overly bitter. This *is* very bitter, but not what youíd probably expect from something with an IBU rating 10 times higher than most IPAs. The malt sweetness adds a nice caramel background that keeps the resiny bitterness from becoming disgusting. It definitely leaves a lingering, tongue numbing bitterness behind. Overall an interesting and surprisingly drinkable beer given itís questionable background. Thanks for pushing the limits again Mikkeller!

Mikkeller 1000IBU Pours medium hazy brown with a thin tan head and a very oily appearance. Kind of ugly in a good way (It seems that some of the gnarliest hop brews look like this with a lot of oil) Aroma is Pine resin and bittersweet citrus. Awesome and strong. Flavor is bittersweet with booze and wood undertones. Long bitter finish with resin and citrus. Fucking awesome. Rare occasion that I am not upset at the price. Worth the money for all the hop heads. I heart Mikkeller.
