iowaherkeye (2691) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - MAY 30, 2010
12.7oz bottle, best by 04/01/12 on the synthetic cork--mustíve been bottled April 1st this year. $13.99 at Ledgerís a couple weeks ago. Removed without the slightest hiss. Minimally hazy deep brown copper with a two finger creamy beige head, good retention. Aroma has lots of sprucy and stronger grassy herbal dry hopped notes. Thereís also plenty of toasty and sweet caramel malt to go around. Flavor is much the same with some citrus rind notes, and not a whole helluva lot else. Fairly sweet malt backbone considering the ridiculousness of the hops that were used. Bitterness peaked at a 6-7, semi-dry finish that turned fairly earthy. Alcohol was masked very well. Light to moderate carbonation with a full body. Burps pine. As it warmed, I got more tropical fruit hops in the flavor and aroma, but it wasnít until it was a little warmer than cellar temp. Good, but overpriced.

Rusty (1536) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 26, 2010
Pours a caramel brown with a bit of yeast sediment and a large creamy tan head that leaves lots of sticky lacing. Aroma is hermal harsh and plentiful hops, caramel and malt. Flavor is bitter earthy herbal hops that pack a good bunch of bitterness, chocolate, caramel, nuts, lingering bitter finish with a lot of sweetness covering it up. Not what I expected, 1000 IBUís is a big thing to live up to. Still quite good and a hop monster for sure, just not worth the cost of admission.

Croff (164) - Ostra Sonnarslov, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2010
Pours a cloudy amber. Larger beige head that slowly fades. Aroma of hop and citrus. Mild flavor of resin, hop, fruit, and pine. Dry bitter finish. A bit on the watery side, but a stronger hop finish. Okay brew.

kromamc (192) - ITALY - MAY 25, 2010
esagerazione un po inutile della luppolatura che si cerca di coprire con un uso di malti caramellati molto pesante... molto squilibrata.... notevole líuso dei luppoli ma fine a se stesso...

375 ml bottle from Steinís Market and Deli in New Orleans. Came wrapped in a paper of various shades of green and the hop thief cartoon drawing. I had read about this and had to give it a shot- what would a "1000 IBU" beer taste like? I knew there was no way this beer could live up to that level, and that happened to be the case. Itís a marketing tool, and it works. Pours a semi-cloudy orange/light brown color with a small, creamy beige head. Nice, big hoppy aroma with caramel malts, orange and grapefruit citrus, pine, and some herbal and floral notes. Flavor of piney, resinous hops, caramel malts, grapefruit, tea, and floral notes. Medium-bodied, with active carbonation and a bitter, malty mouthfeel. Mikkeller does an awesome job here of creating a surprisingly well-balanced, drinkable "American-Style Imperial India Pale Ale" as the label says. Not quite 1000 IBUs, but absolutely worth giving a try.

eyelovebeer (14) - Alabama, USA - MAY 24, 2010
Pours very dark amber color with a white head. Monster hop aroma with a little hint of booze. Taste is of straight pine with subtle citrus notes. Overall fairly well balanced, but still a smack in the mouth. Cool.

larsga (6179) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2010
Medium light brown head. Deep brown body with small floaties and carbonation. Intense oily grassy resiny citric aroma with gasoline notes. Intense oily mango resin taste surfs on a wild wave of bitterness, accompanied by alcohol notes. Full body. Hot, sharp mouthfeel. Bitter alcoholic orangey resiny aftertaste with oily catnip notes. An extreme beer. Drinkable (as in, can be drunk with enjoyment) and interesting. (0.375l bottle, HÝkeren, Copenhagen.)

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2010
Had this one @ CBF 2010. Orange colored brew. Hoppy aroma. Flavor has a good hopflavor, not as intense as one would expect. Soft and smooth. Good bitterness, grape, apricots.
