popery (1703) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 2, 2010
1000 IBU pours fire brick red/carnelian with a big thick ecru-colored head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is a smörgåsbord of hop flavors: floral, pine resin, candied oranges, spruce, grapefruit rind, marijuana, grass, crushed leaves - leaving hops - caramel, bread, malt extract. That said, it’s not nearly as strong of an aroma as I was expecting and this is the biggest fault that separates it from the heights of the style. The flavor loses nearly all of the malt flavor and just hits with a huge pine resin bitterness. This isn’t the bitterest hop bomb I’ve ever tried, but it has the longest bitter hop finish. There’s some sense of malt sweetness, but it’s hard to appreciate as my palate takes refuge from the ceaseless onslaught of hops. A good five minutes after my last sip, it still feels like my mouth is full of resiny essential oils squeezed from pine needles and grapefruit pith. Mouthfeel is about medium and I would actually prefer it a bit thicker.

33 cl bottle. Dark orange-reddish color, massive, thick, solid, creamy offwhite head that does not seat down. Big american hops smell. Heavy malts upfront with fruity esters, really how IIPA usually tastes like, with loads of resin hops. At first does not seem that bitter, but then in the finish all the promised bitterness comes up and stays there. Full bodied, heavy, proper carbonation and very thick. Expensive, but it may take an hour to finish it up.

33cl bij Zeezicht, Breda Alcoholpercentage van 9,6% Uitgeschonken in origineel Mikkeller glas Uiterlijk: donkeroranje/amber met flinke schuimkraag Aroma en smaak: neus niet heel hoppig, erg straf qua bitterheid, fruitig als grapefruit, abrikoos, klein zoetje, bloemig Conclusie: erg bitter, maar andere smaken komen daarna subtiel door, weer erg lekker brouwsel van Mikkeller ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From elcervecero. In Duvel glass. Watching Breaking Bad 4x11. Surprinsingly drinkable for its high IBUs. There are DIPAs with a much more disgusting bitterness. Its bitterness isnt the best one but isnt bad either. The aroma is great soft and nice. Could repeat if it werent so expensive (6?) Every beerman should taste it to experience a 1000 IBUs brew and im sure they wont be dissapointed

Aroma has some sweetness, a bit of fruityness. orange cloudy colour with a firm tan head. taste is light-medium sweetness which slowly turns in to extreme bitterness.finish is very long and very bitter. This beer walks on the edge of being too bitter. I like it but the finish is just so long and bitter that you can’t drink that much.

Grzesiek79 (3548) - Radom, POLAND - SEP 14, 2015
Coz za kunszt, pianka wysoka trwala i kremowa, piekny blotnisty zabarwiony kolor, metny potezne dawki osadu. Kolor brazowo blotnisto szary. Zapach daktyli fig i innych suszonych owocow. W smaku susz, figi, morele i daktyle a takrze jagody i borowki. Bardzo zbudowany profil smakowy, tanicznosc jakby podobna do win czerwonych. Niesamowita bomba goryczkowa, piwo wytrawne i gozkie z lekka slodowoscia. Ciezkawe ale cudowne do konsumpcji po posilku. Alkohol nie wyczuwalny. Sama klasa i ta skala goryczy, niesamowite, bardzo polecam

Forte. O amargor faz jus ao nome, persiste muito tempo após o gole. Faltou um pouco de malte para equilibrar. Para os lupomaníacos.

mecafilo (152) - Perugia, ITALY - SEP 5, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2015 Bottle @ home. Pours with a golden orange colour, rocky long lasting white head. Aroma is moderately malty, very hoppy, with notes of herbs, spruce, resin and slight notes of grass. Taste is slightly sweet, very bitter (but not overwhelming: it does get more balanced while drinking). Medium body, slighr carbonation, long hoppy finish. Good brew, but wouldn’t drink more than a bottle!

Holmen1 (3741) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 4, 2015
Fra flaske på ØST, delt med Egil sep-15: rødlig kobber med fint skum som varer. Kraftig ipa-aroma med alle standard inntyrkk. Smaken og bitterheten balanseres med den største selvfølge av maltkroppen.. De 1000 (teoretiske) IBU merkes ikke, snarere er dette en mykt avrundet DIPA. Takk til Egil for denne!

From tap Øst with JMD and OGJ 03.09.15. Slightly hazy dark orange. Off-white head and dense lacing. Aroma of bitter citrus, green apples and yeast. Sevilla marmelade, bitter citrus and tropical fruits in taste. Long aftertaste.

Amber with rich creamy off-white head. Sweet hoppy aroma. Quite strong sweet background taste immediatedly followed by very strong bitterness. Latter stays long in the aftertaste.
