From a bottle... Crazy hoppy beer! Reminded me a lot of Dogfish Heads 120 minute... Really good if you like bitter hoppy! I loved it. Definitely not a session beer!

Que locura de cerveza. Parece un zumo de cereales bastante espeso. Un amargo intenso que se va convirtiendo en dulce y notas especiadas tipo romero. Esta cerveza no es para principiantes.

500 mL bottle shared at an impromptu tasting at Tippins. Thanks Dom! The pour is definitely a bit darker. Like a brown-ish tint to a nice light IPA. There is a pretty thick foamy head that hangs around, slowly dissipating into a film with some great lacing. The aroma conceals the advertised 1000 IBUs pretty damn well. There is a big citrus (mostly grapefruit) and hop presence, but there are also some underlying sweet malt and caramel tones. The flavor is a little conserved at first, but it is a definite bitter bomb. It’s not as sharp as I would anticipate, but the bitterness is solidly embedded into the tongue. There is a good citrus and malty caramel character, but the bitterness takes over and dominates that sweetness. The mouth feel is a bit thin, but the carbonation is surprisingly good, and the aftertaste... Whoa. It’s just that bitter bomb that lasts and lasts. This is just surprisingly good

I brefer more than few, this is it, it’s definetlly more! 1000 IBU is very accurate, beautiful light-brown top, dark-brown color and sour-bitter taste. Gets better with every sip. Like that it doesn’t have fizziness at all.

martjoobolut (337) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 12, 2014
0,33L bottle, BB 12.2015. Pours hazy copper with off white head. The head stays. The lacing is extra nice. Aroma is mango, fruits, pine, and grapefruit. Taste is fruits, caramel, and hoppy grapefruit bitter. Finish very long grapefruit bitter. Overall: great beer; if you like hoppy beers, you’ll love this one.

Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, NORWAY - APR 8, 2014
Pours dark hazy orange amber, with a big foamy offwhite head, that lasts forever and leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aromas of peach, grapefruit, caramel, floral and some weird bubblegum/perfumy stuff. Taste is heavy both in bitterness and sweetness, and the bitterness sticks to your palate for ages.

DanielBrown (3625) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines. A suitable beer to celebrate LEICESTER CITY being PROMOTED TO THE PREMIER LEAGUE. Outstandingly tasty - smooth, balanced, powerful, juicy, grainy. Gosh, this is just delicious. Really splendid: wish I could drink it everyday.

Gut, dass ich nicht voreingenommen bin. Denn das hier ist nix. Klar, volle Ladung Zitrusfrüchte mit einer ordentlichen Portion Hopfen. Aber niemand kann mich zwingen, einen brutal bitteren Abschluss zu würdigen. Und gepaart mit der recht dünnen Struktur ist das hier nix.

McTapps (2965) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - MAR 29, 2014
Beer from trade with Meilby - thank you so much! The beer pours out in a deep dark brown-amber colour with steady head and medium body. Aroma of bitterness, leaves and spruce. Taste of very bitter hops, citrus, grass and pine. Light hints of medicine. Very bitter and unquaffable, hard to drink. But also very refreshing, special and different.

varanid99 (431) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 28, 2014
Pours a slightly murky dark orange/brown, with a decent off white head. The aroma hits you in the face before it’s out of the bottle - pine, malt, slightly musty, tropical fruit, grassy. The taste - there’s a caramel taste up front, but it’s quickly beaten down by a huge piney bitterness. The bitterness is almost overwhelming but there is a nice brown sugar/caramel underneath that just won’t be killed. Long, very bitter finish - it will kick your arse, but I was expecting to not get through it - I actually found the underlying caramel really pleasant. Monster.
