Bottle. Pours a hazy brown color with minimal head. 1000 IBU and wrapped in paper. An interesting visual novelty that definitely caught my eye. Flavor is initially very sweet, notes of candi sugars and ripe fruits. Hops are definitely prominent, but not as cloying as I imagined. Very smooth, seriously resinous with heavy notes of citrus. Alcohol is well hidden with just a hint of warmth at the back end. Tasty easy drinking DIPA.

330 ml bottle from Mikkeller bottle shop. Hazy amber with off white head. Caramel, fruit and pine in aroma. Taste is zest, pine, caramel and fruit. Long bitter dry finish. Semi dry with high bitterness and low carbonation.

Awesome. I know the reality is that my palate couldn’t truly detect this many IBU’s but I did detect the strong bitterness, which was even. Not harsh or one-sided. The malt balance was incredible. A must have for all hop lovers.

Bottle. Dark yellow-amber color. Heavy hop aroma: pine notes, spicy, citrus, fruit, grass, pharmacy, resinous. Mighty taste: oil and malty sweetness, tsunami hop bitterness, wormwood. Very unusual experiment.

Vells (964) - Riga, LATVIA - JUN 13, 2015
Feels bit of a waste of ingredients - at first theres huge maltiness, caramel almost syrupy sweetness, but.. in tast its all overcomed by dull bitterness. At first its interesting and enjoyable, but keep going and it becomes boring and even annoying. Like a wormwood. Before bitterness eats all aroma off, theres some peach, grapferuit, pine, caramel. Ends dry and bitter. Interesting for try. Not interesting for buying 2nd time

Melnis (306) - LATVIA - JUN 11, 2015
Flavor tells a tell of sweet and hoppy story, but the taste gives complex bitter and dry and mouth strangling feeling which stays for very long time.

Colour is between dark orange and copper. Big sticky off-white head. Body is on the firmer side of medium, with a frothy, creamy texture. Some fresh citrus in the aroma and early part of the taste - grapefruit and lime. There is a touch of toffee in there, but before long the bitterness volume is turned up to the max. And there it stays - the longest bitter aftertaste I’ve experienced from a beer. So it lives up to its reputation and an enjoyable experience, but not sure I’d do it again.
