Pours cloudy copper, sticky white head and lacing. Biscuits, cereal malts, floral hops with a bit of pepper on the nose. Complex hop profile, grapefruit, cedar and an interesting spiciness that makes this unique. Big taste.

Bottle shared by dkachur at the 14th Richmond Gathering. Pours hazy amber with a medium, creamy and frothy beige head, medium-long retention with good lacing. Aroma and flavor are heavy malt (cookie, caramel, toast), heavy hops (floral, pine, citrus, grassy), and average esters (apple/pear) with notes of alcohol and pineapple. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation with a dry and biting finish.

On tap at The Brick Store. Iíve been really curious about this one for a while, though I really wasnít expecting anything tasty. Rather than throw good taste to the wind for sake of making a devastating hop bomb, Mikkeller has made a serious bitter beer while maintaining the idea of a tasty brew. The beer is dark than I anticipated, sort of a dark copper color with a very solid head. The aroma is obviously powerfully bitter. Itís sheer raw bitterness like grapefruit extract but with less citrus and some pine needles thrown in. The flavor is good too. Itís bracingly dry with flavors of pumpernickel, burning leaves, solid hop cone and conifer. This is not a very floral IIPA. This is arguably an enjoyable sipper.

Have had this twice now, once on tap at Dekkardís in the neighborhood a few weeks ago, and then from a bottle from Greenís shortly after. Sensational beer. Green and black burgler paper wrap a nice touch. This is not your grandmotherís Ruination IPA. Classical hazy amber pour featuring fluffy, lacy off-white head. Grapefruit, orange, apricot dominate the nose. Syrupy mouthfeel. Extra super bitter as would expect first sip. Never characterized a beer as íwoodyí before, but this one is. Think driftwood. Hyperdimensional maybe, but I like it. Will probably reach though for that Ruination when Iím in the mood for a beer like this.

(Sample Date: 3/19/2011 Source:Other) Fruity floral hop aroma over moderate caramel. Mostly clear orange golden with small white head. Pineapple hop fruitiness with robust bitterness. Medium body and mouth feel. Finish is totally hop burn.

Surprisingly, the aroma is not of the intense hoppiness that a lot of DIPAs have. Itís more like a dank vegetal smell with a slight floral component. Murky amber with a tan head. The hops are strong but mostly flavoring hops and the high concentration is again more vegetal than overly bitter. This *is* very bitter, but not what youíd probably expect from something with an IBU rating 10 times higher than most IPAs. The malt sweetness adds a nice caramel background that keeps the resiny bitterness from becoming disgusting. It definitely leaves a lingering, tongue numbing bitterness behind. Overall an interesting and surprisingly drinkable beer given itís questionable background. Thanks for pushing the limits again Mikkeller!

Mikkeller 1000IBU Pours medium hazy brown with a thin tan head and a very oily appearance. Kind of ugly in a good way (It seems that some of the gnarliest hop brews look like this with a lot of oil) Aroma is Pine resin and bittersweet citrus. Awesome and strong. Flavor is bittersweet with booze and wood undertones. Long bitter finish with resin and citrus. Fucking awesome. Rare occasion that I am not upset at the price. Worth the money for all the hop heads. I heart Mikkeller.

Large beige head, excellent retention with a sticky coating lace. Seriously murky amber orange color. Nose is big on citrus, grapefruit, orange, pine and earth. Body is med/full, resiny, fairly acidic and a hint chewy. Lotsa hop flavor, citrus, pine, some cat pee along with notes of melon, tangerine, ahint of alcohol and cedar. Dry, bracing finish. Lingering bite and fairly brutal, nice! Bottle procured from statelineliquors.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2012 375mL bottle, split with manuchampions, pours golden amber. Aroma of potent grapefruit rind, citrus hops and caramel malts to back. Flavour is surprisingly balanced, at least at first - pungent citrus hops and bitter grapefruit, balanced beautifully by caramel malts. On a blind tasting, I doubt Iíd guess this was 1000 IBU as it is exceptionally well-balanced for the claimed bitterness. After a while, the astringency does creep up on you, wrecking the palate, though in a tasteful way. Wonderful IIPA.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2012 12.7 oz green bottle, corked, caged, and covered in paper. Very nice packaging. Served very lightly chilled (15 min in fridge). It pours into my American pint glass a thick brownish orange/red with an abundance of hop bits floating around. I alwasy love the appearence of the unfiltered DIPAs. THe head is huge, off-white, and foamy. It sticks for a long time and slowly receds with some very nice lacing. The smell is really good, Iím sure if it were colder it would be less fragrant but this is exquisite. Of course there is some simcoe in there which I love. It is piney, perfumey, citrusy, and intensely concentrated. It is a pure hop aroma. This beer is dynamite on the taste buds, it is about as bitter as you can get with a decent malt backing. The simcoe stars again here. I really enjoyed Mikkellerís single hop simcoe and Weyerbachers Unfiltered Double Simcoe, but this one takes the cake. If you love this hop variety you will love this beer. The hop flavor coats the mouth like a resin. The hops are just so over the top but yet tamed by the thin but sweet maltiness. It is like drinking Simcoe juice. If you like the bitter feeling pounding in your mouth this one is for you. To me it is extremely drinkable both for the alcohol percentage (which has no presence in the mouth) and the style in general. I am a sucker for the Simcoe. This beer has a gimmicky cloak, yes it is 1000 ibus theoretically, but it is also a fantastic take on the DIPA. The brewer specifically stated that it was meant to show how an extreme beer can be a drinkable and enjoyable one. It is too bad it is so expensive and rare, otherwise it would easily be a go to DIPA along with Pliny and Hopslam. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-11-2010 22:25:42
