Bottle @ Danís house. Dark red orange appearance with a cream colored head. Weird bready and a strange plethora of multiple hops and some bitterness. Weird huge grassy, organic, piney, resiny hoppy dominated flavor. The hops and bitterness really linger. Need to rerate since this is a little old.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 25, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2013 Bottle, 37,5 cl: Hazy surprisingly dark beer - amber with a lasting, creamy and nearly orange-colored head. Aroma is very sweet caramel-malty and fruity hoppy with strong notes of peach and grapefruit. Flavor is very sweet malt with tons of fruity hops - citrus, tangerine, peach and grapefruit are very prominent. There are notes of raisin, prunes and dates as well and it doesnít feel as bitter in the mouth as I had expected. Actually it has a a very soft mouthfeel and a creamy texture. Finish is lingering dry and bitter. Interesting brew, but somehow, it seems a little out of balance - too sweet and plummy for my palate. I prefer my (I)IPAs more dry and less complicated to drink.

Wrapped bottle. Was very nervous about whether this would be old or in bad shape as can happen with expensive imports. But super lovely melon mango aroma. Unfiltered I guess, with little Kuiper belt of sediment. Very dark and cloudy with very persistent head and instant thick lacing. Flavor a little licorice and tea but with plenty of bitterness and some balancing sweetness. Bitter finish is most notable characteristic. Smells great, tastes good but not special.

ComradeK (1081) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 16, 2011
375ml bottle. Pours a hazy mid-amber, with lots of floating sediment - Iím guessing, given the beer, that he sediment is not the usual yeast, but is instead hops. Its large off-white head lasts well and leaves excellent lacing. The aroma is, oddly enough, extremely hoppy, to the exclusion of anything else. Grapefruit, pine resin and some weak floral notes are the main aromas. There is a brief moment of nothing much at the start, before an absolute avalanche of bitterness hits. White pepper and an almost chilli-like burn assault the tastebuds in a way that no other beer that I have tasted does. A touch of ginger plays a supporting role, much as it would in a fiery curry, and a hint of pine is introduced in the body. The merest touch of caramel malt appears towards the finish, before being overcome by grapefruit and pine in the aftertaste. After swallowing, the front of the tongue especially is left with a similar prickling, stinging sensation to that left by strong chilli on the lips. An insane brew, this stretches the limits of beer like nothing else I have encountered. Being both a lover of extreme beer and a certified (or certifiable?) hop-head, the sense of anticipation I had before this beer was immense. It didnít disappoint. A gibbering, raving lunatic of a beer. Great stuff.

Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. July 2011.
An inferno of bitterness, the aroma is heavy with sticky resin and pine with some grapefruit notes. The taste and mouthfeel is just as extreme with a heavy dominating bitterness. Though itís not bad, defiantly drinkable if youíre looking for something really bitter. I can see myself enjoying this!

This is a true to form IPA. I feel privileged to have enjoyed it. The hops were spot on and very powerful.

Blom (836) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2011
Orange-brown with a thick grey head when poured from a generous angle. Pleasant dusty aroma with a lot of hops (of course) but also with a malty caramel-base. The flavour is surprisingly balanced for a such a hop monster. The hops are aggressive, but the malt keeps it in check. It burns a bit though, but considering the high alcohol, thatís no surprise. The texture is creamy, almost sticky with flat to no carbonation. I could not drink a whole bottle of this, but itís a great sipping beer.

Tap @ Bishops Arms Folkunga. Murky redish brown with a nice creamy yellowed head that leave a nice film on the glass. Aroma is superhoppy with lots of pine, resin, herbs and some catt piss. Just the bitter stuff. In the background caramel, grapefruit, mango and peach puts up a good fight but lose in the end. Same goes with the flavour. Its an onslaught of bitterness that puts camp in the back of your mouth and never seem to stop pounding. Like Omhper said, its a freak but still it kind of works. Like training martial arts, afterwards it feels good though you got a good beating. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drake (11437) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2011
500 mL bottle from State Line Liquors at the 14th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering, 3/19/11. Pours a hazy orange color with a large creamy tan head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of bitter citrus and resiny hops with a nice toffee mop backbone. The taste is bitter citrus, resiny and herbal hop notes. Some faint maltiness, but the bitterness dominates. Medium-full bodied.

On tap at biero. Masterpiece, massive beer. Aromas of caramel, nuts, and dark fruit. Taste has perfectly balanced sweetness and bitterness, and very long length. Palate is syrupy, and full bodied. Brown, with a frothy head.
