Pours reddish orange with lacy white head. Smells and tastes of grapefruit peel. Taste lingers, sticky finish.

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!

Cloudy brown beer, frothy off white head. Softish palate. Smooth dark toffee malt, mild. Integrates well with grassy spicy hops. Pineapple and pine too! Finishes dry, slightly bitter aftertaste. 1000 IBU? My arse! But who cares its a very nice beer.

motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 18, 2012
on tap at zubaty pes in prague, the only czech place ive heard of with mikkeler on tap. quite an inviting shade of amber with a pancake dough head; the aroma is tropical fruit verging on medicinal; the bitterness is long and intense, of course, in a way that defeats all other flavours. interesting to try but once was probably enough

hayduke (5171) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 13, 2012
This was a draft pour at THE LOCAL Beer Bar in Eureka, CA. This came in the 12 oz glass cloudy and murky brownish orrange with a dense a pillowy yellowish off-white head and serious glue like lacing rings. The nose is intense, with simply a ton of hips. No single aroma stands out but there is citrus, pine, tangerine, mango, and other rope tropical fruits. The body is quite bold and heavy with a very sticky and rich moutjfeel. The flavor is very bitter, but there is so much flavor the bitterness does not create any negative impact, but somehow it all comes together to e very tasty and drinkable. This is a hopheads dream beer. As your work you way through all the wonderful favors that were advertised in the aroma into the long dry, bitter finish you are amazed at the skill to create such a remarkable beer. Loved every drop.

Bottle from beerplanet.eu. Hazy amber color with medium white head. Floral hops, grapefruit, caramel, malt, earthy notes. Taste, fruity (grapefruit, tropical fruit), caramel, piney hops, herbs, mint. Long extremely bitter finish. Excellent beer.

vesavee (6) - FINLAND - JUN 3, 2012 does not count
Captain Obvious to the rescue: this is quite bitter! Did not get much of the aroma, but then again its allergy time so I cant smell anything anyway. Loved it, but was not a good choice for a first beer of the evening. After this nothing tastes like anything for a while, which is hardly surprising.

A very nice take on the beloved American IIPA. Extremely hop forward, but well balanced and floral. bravo!

PD4Ever (109) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - MAY 21, 2012
12.7 oz bottle poured into tulip glass Aroma: peaches, orange, mango, lemongrass, floral hops, malty, caramel, vanilla, maybe a hint of dark fruits Appearance: murky light brown color and very hazy. thin layer of tan head that faded quickly. hardly laces glass. Taste: medium sweet, mild sour, mild bitter Palate: finish is medium to high bitter, medium sweet, and mild sour. Medium body and creamy texture. Carbonation is average. Tropical fruits come out on the aftertaste. Alot less bitter than I was expecting. Bitterness and a bit of heat from the alcohol lingers on the tongue for a while. Overall: This wasnt what i was expecting. The appearance was not the usual DIPA and for the amount of IBUs supposedly present this was no where near as bitter as I expected. I am pleasantly surprised. Lots of fruity and floral aromas. Huge malt backbone to balance it out. For the price I paid however I wont be picking this up again.

Green wrapped bottle. Pours out a mud like color with tan head. Full body that is thick and creamy. Good lacing. Bitter goes without saying but it finishes with a hint of sweetness I can't identify. Reminds me of palatable wrecker. A beer that gets better once u adjust to the taste. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
