presario (4533) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 16, 2010
Allegedly only 100 IBUs. Dark copper colour. 4oz sample for bottle. Strong woody hop flavour with complementary citrus notes. Very hoppy but still in the very drinkable range.

thebeertourist (4656) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 16, 2010
Bottle from De Bierkoning. Hazy copper, quite a bit of sediment if you empty the whole bottle into the glass, steady, creamy head. Complex hoppy nose: grass, spices, citrus. Also hints of sweetness, actually. Hop bitterness,some caramel, extremely bitter, but with a malty backbone to bear it. A highly interesting beer. Surprisingly drinkable. One extra point for the effort to provide something different.

caesar (4715) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2010
Tap @ Copenhagen ’10. Hazy copper color, short head. Big hoppy aroma. Piney, grapefruit, earthy. Very bitter, but drinkable. Some malt.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 16, 2010
Bottle, at the CamRA Calgary Burn Unit Fundraiser. Pours hazy deep gold/red, with a medium off-white head, solid lacing. Nose is huge pine resin and grapefruit, with snippets of orange, and a heavy caramel-laden maltiness. Palate is surprisingly balanced and drinkable for something labeled "1000 ibu", in fact rather dangerously so. Flavors run towards the pine and caramel as well, with some non-distinct citrus notes. Tasty.

Terminus (3146) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAY 15, 2010
hazy amber hue with a small off-white head around the rim of the glass. earthy, piney nose loty oaky woodsy note as well. Very nice! flavors are sweet malt to start with a wallop of huge resinous hops-chinook? What is used in this beer? lots of really woodsy notes as well. the finish, well its resinous as hell as well. this is like rogue old crustacion in its hop bill, but without the nasty dirty notes that beer has. Thanks to Daknole for bringing this to the Benson tasting.

brianjames1 (539) - Northridge, California, USA - MAY 15, 2010
375ml bottle into stemmed ale glass. Copper color with large tan head. Smells a bit hoppy but more malty. Moderate mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Taste is more malty than hoppy, definitely not a "1000" ibu in my book.

patrickfannon (1230) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2010
Bottle. 22 oz. Pours a hazy chesnut with an insane amount of light, tan sediment. Tall, creamy, beige head. Aroma of vanilla, honey, caramel, oak, cedar, bourbon, and just about every imaginable hoppy, resiny note one can imagine. Insane, thick, full body with a chewy, sticky, bitterly sweet palate. Finishes with a buttery silky smooth warmth. Excellent, insanely unique imperial IPA.

ekstedt (5215) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2010
Bottle (37.5 cl) from Systembolaget. I was really curious about this one, could hardly wait until I could pop the (plastic) cork. What is 1000 (theoretical) IBU:s really like? Well, the bottle pours a clear mahogny with a creamy tan head. Strong hoppy aroma with liquorice, oranges, spruce, and some caramelly malts. Medium bodied, smooth carbonation. Heavaly bitter, but the carame malts counterbalance this beer to be just slightly more bitter than say Bigfoot. This beer lucidly illustrates the principle that it is hard to get more than 100 IBU in practice. Very good and dangerously drinkable though.

Sledutah (4115) - Utah, USA - MAY 13, 2010
12.7oz bottle, green bottle corked and caged, wrapped in a green paper
Appearance: Hazy dark amber with floating particles (hops?), a very nice creamy off-white cascading head and lots of lacing
Aroma: Pine resin and sweet malts
Taste: Smooth mouthfeel. Pine, caramel, citrus, sweet malts and hop bitterness in the finish
A very nice IIPA, lots of hops upfront and in the finish with sweet malts in the middle.

badlizard (5540) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAY 13, 2010
Opaque brown with a fizzy off white head. Deep musty hoppy aroma. Oily palate. Tastes of hop oil grass citrus caramel malt taste with bitterness through out.
