patrickfannon (1239) - 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 (5405) - GŲteborg, 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 (4660) - 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 (5539) - 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.

CheersMate (1309) - Fremont (Seattle), Washington, USA - MAY 13, 2010
12.7 oz. bottle from Greenís on Buford Highway. I wasnít going to get this at first, but then I decided that I canít pass up a 1000 IBU beer. Nice off-white head sitting on top of a rather translucent brown brown. Looks pretty good considering the head is nice and fluffy; plus, the head doesnít seem as if itís going anywhere anytime soon. To tell you the truth, Iíve never really enjoyed the European Imperial/Double IPAs because they always seem to be of the barley wine style. Old orange citrus hop aroma. Very pungent aroma. Slight malt sweetness accompanying the citrus aroma. Quite the pungent brew, but doesnít have that fresh hop profile I like in the IIPA style. Fresh citrus hop flavor at first, then comes the sweet sugary malt profile as well. The beer finishes with a nice bitterness that lasts for quite some time. Hops are all over the place in the sense that at some moments I feel like my taste buds are being overloaded by hops, and at other times there is the perfect amount of bitterness. Not an extremely nice texture, but average for the style. Very hoppy brew, obviously, with some nice flavors, but wish it were a bit more "fresh" tasting as opposed to just being bitter.

Hansen (6572) - Assentoft, DENMARK - MAY 13, 2010
Light brown and unclear. Has an off-white head, fully lasting. Hoppy aroma, grass, hay, straw. Flavor has some faint sweet notes, harsh bitterness, unpleasent. Dry, dry texture.

JoeTheYounger (1144) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - MAY 12, 2010
375ml bottle from Total Wine $13.99. Pours a hazy brownish amber color with a thick beige head that dissipated within minutes. Aroma is lots of Pine and some caramel and sweet grapefruits. Taste was very bitter and malty with hops attacking your pallet in full force. Body is medium carbonation and oily. Overall pretty crazy with a lingering bitterness even minutes after. Could not drink more than one of these at a time like I could a regular or DIPA. Glad I got to try though.

doubleo (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 12, 2010
Bottle at Stone. Pours murky amber with a thin, offwhite head and good lace. Smells big anf hoppy, somewhat musty. Big and caramelly and citrusy bitter hoppy. Tastes the same. Big and citrusy hop flavors. Like eating your lawn, dirt and all. Big, ripe citrus. Full body, good carbonation.

TheHopHead (26) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 10, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2010 Possibly the best Imperial IPA Iíve ever tasted (not that Iíve tasted too many, but still).
