Figured this one would be too overwhelming but it isn’t. Stong resin hop aroma and notes of spruce. Very cloudy with short lived head. Taste is a hop lovers dream and hop citrus hop flavors touch every part of your tongue.

Xavalias (110) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy dark amber to brown with a big creamy, yellowish, persisting head. Pellets of yeast floating up and down. Nose is fruity, freshly pressed orange juice, sour candies. Strong hoppy aroma: bitter grapefruit, caramel, toffee, some pine resin, turning fruity, dark ripe fruits. Strong malt base. Taste is highly bitter of course, but not as much as one would expect due to the very sweet balance. Full bodied, oily, very long hoppy aftertaste. Exactly as advertised, bold even by Mikkeller’s standards, but not very drinkable.

jookos (2061) - FINLAND - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle. Hazy darker orange, lots of trubby stuff in the bottle. Hoppy nose. Green resinous, with oranges, green berries, some cat pee. Rather dark though, more of a dark foresty piney than fresh fruity. Fullish body. very intense, with a long hoppy finish. Pine needles, caramel malts. Bitter. Has a lot of sweetness, but it gets washed away with the bitters.

Good bitterness. This is the beer if you to make your friends experience bitterness. It is not really made to have interesting hop aroma so don’t expect much. One thing for sure is you’re gonna have your taste buds overloaded with bitterness. Alcohol is well hidden and the sweetness is medium. A must try, at least once.

agent_persik (383) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 10, 2014
Dark amber hazy color, medium beige head. Aroma of malt tropical fruits, pine, honey and hops. Taste has similar notes - sweet with heave bitterness and super long hoppy aftertaste. Full body and soft carbonation, alcohol is very well hidden. Nice double IPA and much more drinkable than I expected from the name.

Swaroga (1303) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2014
Butelka 33cl. OCZY : piwo jest mętne i ma kolor brudnej i ciemnej czerwieni. Piana jest spora o kolorze kości słoniowej z wyraźnym odcieniem czerwieni. NOS : piwo ma bardzo mocne nuty ziołowe i żywicy. Do tego wyczuwam aromaty podobne do tarty, sernika i nawet piernika. Po wstrząśnięciu wydobywam mocne i skoncentrowane aromaty cytrusów a przede wszystkim grejpfruta i pompelo. Mam na myśli ich miąższ, skórkę i pestkę. Wciąż mnóstwo żywicy. Gdzieś tam z tyłu można dojść do aromatów podobnych do soku z jabłka, gruszki i wiśni. USTA : średnio nasycone o konsystencji śmietany. Pomimo, że piwo klei się po szklance i ustach szybko uderza mocna gorycz. Gorycz zalegająca i piekąca. Nuty słodowe przypominają piernika czy belgijskiego herbatnika specoulous. Słodkość musi być potentna bo udaje się jej złagodzić mocno intensywna gorycz. Ta ostatnia podobna jest do gorzkich ziół i pestek cytrusowych. Jest moc. Juź po pierwszym łyku zalega. To uczucie, całe szczęście, jest wzbogacone przez rewelacyjny aromat cytrusów, jałowca i żywicy. Posmak jest wciąż bardzo gorzki i piekący. ODCZUCIA : nie jestem zawiedziony. Już po pierwszym łyku stwierdziłem, że Mikkeller wywiązał się z obietnicy. Cholernie gorzkie przy czym świetnie ukoronowane piernikiem i niesamowitym aromatem. Super. OCENA : smak : 8/10 pijalność : 5/10 styl : +2

Thick double IPA with a really nice foam. Brutally bitter. Syrup consistency. The bitterness will not get the lowest of the palate.

MunBro (313) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 6, 2014
Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, pine, bitterness. Despite a perfect pour into a spigleau IPA glass this had a fist size amount of foamy head that stayed for a long time. Lots of sediment too. At this point I haven’t actually tried it yet as I am waiting for the 3 inches of head to settle... 10 mins later and we are down to 1 finger of head. Getting a solid 2 for appearance due to the inconvenience. Great hop bite here. Nice flavours of grapefruit, citrus, hops, and a mild malt backbone to brace the alcohol. Nice blast of citrus hops with the double IPA hit of IBUs. Obviously not 1000 (I’d guess 105-115) but the title is humorous. Overall a great beer, wasn’t a fan of the crazy head but this was probably the best I have ever had from Mikkeller.

Smalle (104) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 4, 2014
Bottle BBF 2016. Pours a cloudy amber with a bit flocculation. Aroma: lots of hops (citrus and pine). Taste: Huge hops, very bitter, but drinkable. It only becomes a bit rough in the finish. Not as extreme as expected. Nice beer to taste, but not one I’m likely to drink on a regular basis.

jandd1983 (2529) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 4, 2014
It poured a dark hazy orange/amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was of peach, grapefruit, caramel, floral and bubblegum. The taste was bitter and sweet as the bitterness sticks to your palate for ages. Interesting.

skullgeorge (41) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - AUG 3, 2014
On tap at the Hoppy Pub, Thessaloniki. Pouurs dark orange, hazy with a creamy thick head, almost beige. Aromas of hops, caramel, grapefruit and bisquit. Taste is sweet malts and caramelish in the start, hoppy, pine, fruity and really bitter in the end. Soft carbonation, medium to full body. The aftertaste is bitterness from the huge ammount of hops... Loved it !!!
