It had a sweet flavour with hops, grass, grapefruit and pine. Actually not as bitter as I expected, Iíve tried beers that have been more bitter. However the bitterness lasted quite a while. Long after sipping I could still feel it lingering in my mouth. Also not as much hops as I would have hoped for, but still a pretty nice beer.

ClubGonzo (3873) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2010
Pours a deep ruby red body with floaties and a small, off-white top. Aroma is very fruity hops: apricot, peaches, wild strawberries, raspberries. Taste is not quite as fruity, with more sweet cough syrup and grassy hops coming through fairly clear. Extremely bitter and long-lasting aftertaste. The bitterness just goes on forever, and really proves the IBU point of this creation. Otherwise, itís just a good DIPA and not too impressive, but a well made brew. Extra points for originality to Mikkeller on this one.

First off, I have to congratulate Mikkel on this brew. My hatís off to you buddy! Poured light brown and very hazy into large DFH Snifter from bottle. Aroma smells like fresh hops. This beer is very intense on the palate. First it hits with a nice bitterness, then washes over with sweetness as itís traveling towards the back of the tongue, and finally at the bitterness receptors on the back of the tongue it explodes into a fresh hop taste that keeps on giving well after five minutes past the initial sip. This beer tastes like unfermented wort and fresh hops. Definitely get this brew, and share the bottle with a friend.

Bottled. Poured a deep cloudy red with a 3 finger head. Aroma of dank earth, hops, and alcohol. Almost 2 different beers flavor wise between out of the fridge 15 minutes and as it warms to near room temp. The sweet and bitter play together much nicer as it warms even above cellar temp, well carbonated throughout. Interesting, but overall not the tastiest hop combo Iíve ever had.

teorn88 (1915) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2010
37,5 cl bottle. Pours an opaque caramel color with a big beuge head. Creamy and losg lasting foam. Aroma is stunning: tons of hops, with citrus pineapple and pine, balanced by a good amount of caramel notes. Taste is sweeter then expected with the huge hoppy character well balanced by a warm caramel and toffee. Almost not perceivable the abv. Full bodied and good carbd. This beer is massive, but still well rounded.

This goes beyound the businness case. Behind the pretentious mention "1000 IBU" there is a real beer, not just an addition of hops. It is clearly cleverly made. The smell is terrific (simcoe hop maybe). The mouth is sweet at the beginning due to the caramel maltiness. After that, a wave of bitterness coats everything in its path. The aftetaste lasts long. This brewer is insane but I am ready to follow him in his madness.

WOW this cork was a pain to try and remove. Murky born pour with a medium brown head. Aroma is malty, caramel, toast, and pine (smells more like a barley wine than a DIPA. Flavor is super, super bitter, along with pine, toast, and more and more bitterness.

BelgBeerGeek (1297) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUL 17, 2010
head: 1 finger , beige
colour: orange amber
smell: overall sweet, floral, wet forest , grass , reminds me of a rainy day in middle of nature/forrest ... not too much hops , at least not what i expected , , something differen but reminds me a bit of a litter box too ?!
taste: sweet and nuty start , afterwards comes in the bitterness , not as much as expected , reminds me of citric peel or chewing on some long grass (cowboy like i mean :p ) beer is quite dry but end is drier , again aftertaste reminds of grass and other greens , like the crown of a tomato ... alcohol taste is well noted thru whole of beer , but not overwhellming
not a bad beer actually !

Fin (7267) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2010
Bottle purchases from both Bierkoning (Amsterdam) & Dranken Geers (Nr Gent) on recent holiday June 2010 Pours clear dark copper colour, maybe a touch of haze, large white billowing head that is positively bursting with hoppiness. Some citrus on nose, with grapefruit pre emminent here and also a bit of pine. Taste is far smoother than you expect, yes its bitter, but its restrained and enjoyable, the hoppiness is a little sticky, plenty of hoppy resins showing, the Mikkeller taste (and donít ask me to describe it) is there, but this is overall a very name beer that is surprisingly easier to drink than it should be.
