COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like your beer bitter? Getting tired of inventing zesty kitchen tricks trying to spike your beer in search for that fulfilling kick in the palate? Look no further as 1000 IBU was brewed to satisfy all hop-heads with a craving for some serious back-burning action.

cmonster (1000) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 16, 2011
Unwrapped, uncaged, uncorked bottle poured into a large tulip glass. Very dark for an IPA. Brown-amber with a medium sized pillow of khakiness. Resin, spruce, nut, and dark fruit aromatics. The resin and spruce start to dominate after a short while. Oily bitter attack, heavy tea malt behind. Medium plus body, oily texture, soft carbonation, and an ultra bitter, ultra long finish. As expected, the hops grow as you go. Happy I was able to try this bad boy.

Pours malty red brown with thick off white head. Aroma is a surprisingly good blend of pine and citrus hops. Pretty balanced through the mid palate, but the bitterness comes on the finish. Good for a novelty.

Dark form of an IPA, almost cant see my fingers on the bottom of the glass. REALLY HOPPY, but if you are trying to kill your taste buds this is a really great beer. I aged this for about three years before I opened this not sure if this made a difference. Really fruity smell of figs, flowers and gummi bears. Good bear!

The green 12.7 bottle was corked, caged, and wrapped in paper. thus preventing any possibility of skunking in this hop monster. Of course the first thing that grabbed my attention was the 1000 IBU name and claim to fame. When poured first, the beer looked murky brown with haze due to small particles. As I poured in the final few ounces, out came chucks of yeast, that stayed in suspension. The head atop looked very creamy and craggy. While the look didnít scream DIPA, the smell from the moment of uncorking, up to the first sip certainly did. The aroma was very spicy and piney. The first taste as bitter as they come, with my teeth feeling the hop acids eating into them. Very tongue tingling and somewhat minty in flavor as well. The malt was simple and unobtrusive. The finish was herbal and bitter. The beer felt a bit thinner than a typical DIPA to me, and lacked that certain stickiness I see in some of the best ones. I liked the idea, and there were no obvious flaws here, but I would have liked to see some more interesting malt bill.

77ships (7435) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 31, 2011
sampled bottle@Delirium Hoppy Loft: murky amber with a semi-lasting off-white head, smell is spectacular and much better than the beer itself, very fruity grapefruit hops & fresh peaches, could smell this forever, taste is pretty much what I expected this to be, bitter pine resin & bitter grapefruit hops, lots and lots of super concentrated bitter hops followed by sweet caramel malt, bit flowery, some bitter tangerine in general, as it warmed up it became simply very bitter pure concentrated hops (mostly pine resin), it seems a bit redundant to call this unbalanced, you get what you came for

HighWine (959) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2011
Bottle. Pours a lot darker than I had expected. Copper brown color in the glass. Foamy off white head with the consistency of a homemade marshmallow. Superb lacing. I poured relatively slowly but still got a TON of large particles in my glass. It looks like a science experiment! Milder aroma than I expected. Sweet at first then hop aromas mixed with booze. It smells like a hop-infused simple syrup. The taste starts off with flowery hops followed by honey and then bitingly bitter pine hops that fills the back of your mouth. Medium-full body but the hop bitterness lingers a while. The nearly 10% ABV is well hidden. Good beer.

slitcher (267) - Freeport, Illinois, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Draught @ The Olympic Tavern. Iíve been waiting a LONG time to try this one (thanks Zak!). Pours a cloudy amber with a thin head that leaves a beautiful lacing. Aromas of pine and grapefruit. Flavor is total hops with the perfect balance of malt sweetness....this is the ULTIMATE hop head nectar!!!It Iím really suprised at how well balanced this is-it just doesnít get any better than this.

dark copper, small tan head, lots of lace. nose of malt, alcohol, trace of hops. flavor begins with sweet malt on the front end, but a strong bitterness follows on the back end. medium bodied, bitter finish. i really like the bitter hit of this one. but there is not a lot more to it than that. still, iíd buy this one again.
