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.

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 (7364) - 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 don’t 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.

#400. The best aroma and appearance I have had in some time now. Odd how when drinking this, the bitterness is reasonable and the hops are reasonable as well. It is once you swallow that you start to notice that that your mouth still tastes like hops and everything smells like hops, etc. etc. An amazing bittiness, well, not that I was expecting something else. The malt and abv are all WELL behind the hops. A great beer, but I’m sure some people will hate this more than drinking windex. This is bounds beyond even the strongest So Cal hop bomb. I’m ready for a lupilin stupor.

Bottle from pins in media PA. 15 bucks... Cool label. Pours a redish orange color, decent head. Not much on the nose. Taste reminds me of a barleywine. Kind of disappointed.... hoppy but not bitter.... malty.. just not what I was expecting. I wonder how old this was? Medium texture. Overall: Let down but not bad

Pours brown / amber with a small off-white head. The aroma is very malty with funky hops, bread, earth, pineapple and green onion. This is very nice, but not as hop centered as expected. Thick body with light soft carbonation. The flavor starts off with the aroma notes and lots of bitterness, but a huge amount of malt offsetting it. The finish is earthy and leaves a lingering resin that stays around forever. Very nice.

Draught at KŘ10. Mild grassy hop aroma. Cloudy dark red colour. Small head. Sweet and good grassy flavour. Bitterness, but does not taste more bitter than many other APAs.
