Mikkylar (94) - Placentia, California, USA - FEB 15, 2012
Out the bottle. Pours murky dark orange ,almost brown, with big off white head. Wonderful sweet, citrus, grassy aroma. Huge amount of hops. Flavors of grapefruit & honey balanced nicely by an extremely bitter finish. I love Mikkeller.

superspak (4309) - Michigan, USA - FEB 11, 2012
375 ml wrapped bottle into tulip glass, no bottling date. Pours super hazy dark reddish brown color with a nice 1-2 finger dense kahki head with great retention that reduces to a thick cap. Some decent lacing on the glass. Aromas of huge grapefruit, pine, caramel, orange, herbal spiciness, biscuit, a bit of tropical fruit, and a touch of alcohol. Nice and well balanced aromas. Taste of big grapefruit, orange, pine, caramel, herbal, floral, biscuit, and light tropical fruit. Fairly intense, yet smooth bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, citrus, pine, biscuit, and herbal spiciness for a while. Great balance of bitterness and flavor here; making this "1000" IBUs very easy to sip on. Medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a very creamy, slick, and sticky mouthfeel. Very smooth to drink at 9.6%, but is still a sipper. Alcohol is well hidden with only a warming after the finish. Overall this is a very excellent DIPA offering from Mikkeller, despite the 1000 IBU gimmick. Big citrus hop flavors with great balance. Really enjoyed this one.

jazz88 (2646) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 3, 2012
Bottle. A dark murky orange brown color with a lush tan head. A big fruity and hoppy aroma with intense bitterness. A sweet, syrupy and hop filled flavor.

dinkle50 (1265) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2012
Cloudy amber pour. Single finger head with a ton of lacing. Aroma is tropical fruit. Sweet tropical fruit dominates the first taste, but the bitter after taste is what really shows up and holds up to the "1000 IBU" claim. Pretty boozy taste. Not bad. I’m glad I tried this.

musinj6 (494) - Dedham, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 27, 2012
Pours a murky yellow with small head that leaves sparing amounts of lacing. Heavy malt aromas with heavy grapefruit hops. Boozy. Hints of plum. Medium bodied with soft carbonation with average, bitter finish. Moderately sweet up front that is overtaken by bitterness for the rest of the tasting. Very good.

Peacehammer (624) - California, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Dark hazy amber/orange color. Grape, citrus and hops aroma. First flavor thought is back of the tongue hops. Fresh tasting, not a ton of body going on.
