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.

phaleslu (6701) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 24, 2010
375 ml bottle from Stein’s 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. It’s 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 (6276) - 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, Høkeren, 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.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 23, 2010
(Bottled, 0.375l) Hazy darkish red with a medium, tanned, lasting and lacy head. Dry, woody-grassy-hoppy nose with some exotic fruitiness, and slight stinginess in the "All Others Pale -style". Dryish, strongly grassy-herby-hoppy flavor, with some aromatic (grape)fruitiness, and backed up quite nicely with the caramely-malty body. Long, bitter and dry aftertaste, alcohol fully hidden. Medium to full body, lowish carbonation. Not really that different from 100 IBU beers - so in that sense, it’s just waste of hops. Very nice and quite balanced Double IPA overall, though.

finol (2223) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2010
Bottle. Pours dark mahogny with a beige head. Huge body for a DIPA, which makes this extreme beer rather balanced! Lots of malt and citrusyhops. Not at all as bitter tasting as expected.

Linnet (1141) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2010
Appearance: Big creamy beige head, lacing. Amber/copper colour hazy. Aroma: Hoppy, fruity, tropical fruits, passionfruit, grapefruit, pine, sweet ,malt backbone. Flavour: Big bite fruity, grapefruit, perfume, pine, resin, lots of sweet malts, lingering bitterness Mouthfeel: Smooth yet lively. Total: More hop juice and it would have been perfect, but as always Mikkel knows what he’s doing.

mattyb83 (737) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 21, 2010
From a bottle. Pours a deep amber which is almost brown. Nice off-white head that leaves nice lacing. Sweet and hoppy aroma with caramel and grapefruit. Thick mouthfeel on this one which is rather enjoyable. Taste caramel, orange, and grapefruit. The finish is very bitter.

baggio (320) - norrtälje, SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2010
Bottle@home Apperance: Amber with a huge white head and plenty of lacing. Aroma: Caramel, Hops, Pine. Flavor: Alcohol, Caramel, Citric notes, Hops. Palate: Quite sweet but ends with a kicking bitterness. Quite boring but it drinks very easily for something close to 10% and 1000 ibus. Meh.
