So, I purchased this expecting a mild and malty beer with a pale colour, fleeting nose and forgettable character. IBU means Insipid Brew Unfortunately, right? Shaaaawinggggg. Good presentattion in the glass even though there trip to here must have resulted in the formation of some significant floaties. Fine head and consistent lacing. Well, with this ABV and hop content this should be a given. The nose is complex, grapefruit dominates in my mind with pine and citrus notes as well. Funny that most cleaning agents these days have the same characteristics. The hop flavour of course dominates but it is not so unbalanced as to be off the scale. Still, a great nightcap beer, zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Poured with some sediment, cloudy, nice head. Aroma is kind of citrusy. The flavor is just powerful bitterness. But not in a off putting way, in a balanced manor, balance with the malt, balanced bitterness and aroma and flavor hops. Overall very different beer, but I love it.

0,33l fles met lion gedeeld. Amber met een mooie fijne crème schuimkraag deeltjes vormen bijna een eiland. Aroma is volkoren brood, vruchtenyoghurt. Smaak is een sensatie opzich, begint zoet en fruitig met yoghurt, en perzik. Daarna trekt hij vol bitter weg. Elke slok intenser. Spieren spannen aan. Met een afdronk die naar bitterlemeon en zelfs salmiak neigt. Wat een bijzonder bier. Een tip deel hem, hele fles is overdaad.

Pours dark amber, lots of yeast floaters, good lacing. Aroma of strong malts, hops, and citrus. Bitter initial hop taste, notes of pine, malts, and lots of hops. Most bitter beer I've had, and to bitter for me! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a hazy dark orange beer with slightly tanned head. Aroma is very citrussy and so is the taste. Its a bit overwhelming actually. Very very bitter. Not too drinkable. More of a hyped beer.

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.

Bottle at home. Pours a cloudy, Orange/amber hazy, huge golden lingerin head. Floral hop notes and piney, very bitter 1000 IBU might be right here.. Extremely bitter, good but its to much for me.

Butelka. Aromat bardzo intensywny, wręcz do przesady, po prostu bombarda z grejpfruta. Mega kremowa, żółtawa, drobna piana, gęsta jak śmietana, na 2 palce do ostatniego łyka. Kolor piwa, ciemny bursztyn, lekko mętny. Wysycenie niskie, piwo gęste i bardzo mocno chmielone, przypomina żucie białego zylcu z grejpfruta. Alkohol nie ma prawa nawet wyjść, wszystko szczelnie przykrywa chmiel. Bardzo intensywny finisz, wręcz przepala kubki smakowe goryczą, trzyma i nie chce puścić. Zdecydowanie polecam ale jako małą buteleczkę do spróbowania, piwo jest ekstremalnie gorzkie.

For some reason i expected this beer to dissapoint me - didn’t happen though. Nearly dark cobber brown beer - big and sticky off-white head. The aroma on this one was not that noticable - some pine, flowers, mango and a bit og booze though - but the taste is certanly in your face. Loads of pine, citrus, unripe mango, bitter grape, grass etc. and a very powerfull bitterness in the end. Lingers in your mouth for a very long time. Tastewise the alcohol is very well hidden

330 ml, butelka. Aromaty cytrusowe ale niezbyt mocne, do tego trochę słodowe i daleko w tle alkohol. W smaku goryczka bardzo wysoka.
