IrishBoy (3799) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUN 12, 2010
330 ml bottle shared by Enniskillen from Perry’s Livermore. Nose is very barleywineish; floral hops, pineapple, light toffee, and golden raisins. Murky copper amber with a good sized, glass lacing, ivory head. Flavor is moderately bitter, toffee, and a little brown sugar; kind of like a three year old Bigfoot. Finish is lightly bitter.

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - JUN 12, 2010
Deep amber, with a nice off white head. Aroma is fairly hoppy with light caramel, alcohol, hoppiness, lightly floral. Taste is fairly hoppy, caramel, alcohol, dried fruit.

PatBateman81 (178) - Caserta, ITALY - JUN 12, 2010
Bottle 375 ml. Pours imperscrutable sick and light brown, with a moderate white foam, not so persistent. Intense and rich hop aroma (surely Nugget and Nelson, maybe Amarillo), tropical fruit (ananas, avocado), earthy and citrus peel. Taste so syrupy, with white vine notes; caramel, chamomile, tea, chestnut honey. Soft and nice carbonation. Final comes slowly, but when it comes stun a lot: resinous, piny, rhubarb and long-lasting. A good one, complex, but not much balanced in its contrast.

brenn79 (1467) - Idaho, USA - JUN 11, 2010
12.7 oz bottle- Pours copper with a decent head and massive floaties, aroma is alcohol, raisins, and pine. The flavor is very bitter but it doesn’t seem to be even close to 10 times stronger than the 100 IBU beers i’ve had, strong pine flavors. Overall not what I was hoping for, but not bad.

Hazy orange with a light brown head. Fair lacing. Aroma of citrus, caramel, malts and berries. Acidic, bitter and sweet flavors. Very long bitter finish. Full bodied. Dry. Sampler @ CBF 2010.

A novel idea but this beer is off on several marks. The aroma is interesting but my expectations were much more citrus and floral complexity. The taste is a bit syrupy with some taste of soap. The bitterness is far from what is on the label. I have tasted more hops is many different IPAs. The taste is also a bit one dimensional. A fantastic brewer but not their best effort....

poisoneddwarf (1670) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - JUN 8, 2010
12.7 oz corked bottle into English pint. Aroma is of strong pot resin, very piney. Very aromatic. Pours copper with a medium head and sticky lace, some sediment. Taste is actually not all that bitter for 1000 IBUs. It’s actually pretty malty. Grainy, alcoholic. Medium carbonation, full-bodied, oily. Overall, not as good as I was hoping.

brainlair (236) - Maryland, USA - JUN 8, 2010
375mL bottle. Pours a cloudy orangey amber. Smells very sweet and oily, maybe a bit soapy, with some alcohol. Taste is like a very old double IPA, very sticky, with bitter anise and malt. Not nearly as bitter as I thought it would be, I’ve had beers that were much more bitter. The finish has most of the bitterness, but it’s very astringent and not pleasant.

EricE (1368) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - JUN 8, 2010
Pours a hazy orange with lots of crap floating around. Brown tint in the middle, light tan head. Surprisingly malt dominates the aroma with caramel and slight creamy. Citrus and grapefruit comes through. Very very sweet flavor. A ton of alcohol on the finish with hops which linger on the tongue. A bit grassy. Wouldn’t expect it to be so sweet.

Seriously, this shit is a joke. Not even remotely hoppy. Nose is apple cider, caramel, and vegetal hops. The taste is very sweet, very lightly bitter... 1000 IBUs? hahahaha.... lots of toffee, stale malts, wet grain, mold. Terrible, terrible, drain pour.
