Draught @ The Olympic Tavern. I’ve been waiting a LONG time to try this one (thanks Zak!). Pours a cloudy amber with a thin head that leaves a beautiful lacing. Aromas of pine and grapefruit. Flavor is total hops with the perfect balance of malt sweetness....this is the ULTIMATE hop head nectar!!!It I’m really suprised at how well balanced this is-it just doesn’t get any better than this.

This beer is a hopheads dream. Bitter as all get out. Chewy hops. Lovin it. I have always skipped this beer because one bottle was ten bucks. I found it on tap at a beer tasting bar for one buck. Lucky me.

One badass beer. Appearance: Nice, a bit hazy amber in colour with a yellowish, thick head that lasted very long. Aroma: Most double IPA’s I’ve tasted had a very sweet or alcohol aroma, but not this one. Amazing hoppy, citrusy aroma from the bottle and even better from the glass. Very intense. Taste: Extreme hoppy bitterness, little bit of caramel, resin and earthy flavours. Tons of citrus. No alcohol aftertaste, just how I like it. Mouthfeel: soft carbonation, medium to high bodied. Overall: Never have I tasted an IIPA so amazingly good. Best IIPA I’ve ever had and probably one of the best beers I’ve had so far. Enjoyed from a teku glass. Serving type: bottle

Aroma: grass, citrus, herbs; Appearance: dark pale red, medium vanishing head; Taste: heavy bitterness, medium sourness, medium sweetness; Palate: bitter finish, average carbonation, oily texture, medium body Grandiose DIPA, with almost narcotic amount of hops (some bits even left in the beer), ravishing with bitterness yet still allowing the aroma and maltiness to build. Sip with caution! This beer is an experience.

Aromat słodko kwaśny tropikalny i ananasowy. W smaku piepszony hardkor. Za odczucie początkowo 4 bo jednak zbyt hardkorowo - daję jednak 5 bo jest to "1000" i ma być hardkorowo. Jeśli Mikkeller dążył do osiągnięcia maksimum absolutnej goryczki to udało się. Goryczka miesza się z kwaśnością i intensywnym czerwonym grejpfrutem oraz cytryną - maksymalna kwaskowość - w żadnym wypadku belgijska ale cytrusowa, chmielowa i wypychana przez intensywną, agresywną gorycz. Pijalność nie jest wysoka i tak być powinno - potrzeba czasu by to spokojnie wypić. Piwo jednak jest mega ekstremalne i smaczne. Daję max. bo oddaje to czego się spodziewałem pomimo że nie do końca taki hardkor toleruję - właśnie na to liczyłem.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2011 This beer is art. OMFG, OMFG, OMFG. There is an INSANE amount of hops in this beer. Complex hops flavors too, bitter resin, pine... but then citrus, grapefruit, sour unripened berries. There is a good amount of sugary, malty, caramel sweetness to this beer as well, which tames the unbelievable hop content with artful grace. Even the mouthfeel is well calculated. It starts out crisp and lively, and then smooths off in to a silky texture that helps relieve the bitter shock you receive from the hops. Absolutely incredible... only the aroma needs work. Pliny is perfect in the aroma department, this is close.

Forget the 1000 IBU moniker; this DIPA is all that and a can of hopjuice. Pop the cap and you are met with a roaring onslaught of deep resin, mint and high alpha goodness. Pours a tawny light brown with a thick frothy ran head replete with scads of sticky lacing smattered across my goblet. The best thing about 1000 is that it is not a one trick pony. This brew has an inpeccable rich chewy caramel malty backbone. While not balanced at all, the malty keeps the spicy tingling hop assault from running off the scale. Long earthy bitter finish and some chest warming finishes things up.

375ml bottle. Pours a hazy mid-amber, with lots of floating sediment - I’m guessing, given the beer, that he sediment is not the usual yeast, but is instead hops. Its large off-white head lasts well and leaves excellent lacing. The aroma is, oddly enough, extremely hoppy, to the exclusion of anything else. Grapefruit, pine resin and some weak floral notes are the main aromas. There is a brief moment of nothing much at the start, before an absolute avalanche of bitterness hits. White pepper and an almost chilli-like burn assault the tastebuds in a way that no other beer that I have tasted does. A touch of ginger plays a supporting role, much as it would in a fiery curry, and a hint of pine is introduced in the body. The merest touch of caramel malt appears towards the finish, before being overcome by grapefruit and pine in the aftertaste. After swallowing, the front of the tongue especially is left with a similar prickling, stinging sensation to that left by strong chilli on the lips. An insane brew, this stretches the limits of beer like nothing else I have encountered. Being both a lover of extreme beer and a certified (or certifiable?) hop-head, the sense of anticipation I had before this beer was immense. It didn’t disappoint. A gibbering, raving lunatic of a beer. Great stuff.

Bottle from Capone’s and Frank Smith’s. Pours turbid deep orangy mahigany w 2-finger fluffy white head. Nose is big caramel malt, hops, pineapple, tangerine, black pepper, mango. Tastes of huge caramel malt, extremely smooth and well integrated hops, earthy, tropical fruit of the mango/pinepple/tangerine trifecta, black pepper. Tis one is outstanding, and reminds me a little of a souped up, hopped up AlphAlphA. Rich, complex, well hidden alcohol, and a masterpiece.
