talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 9, 2012
The pour is a very hazy, reddish-chestnut color with a full, dense, off-white head which settles to a rocky, creamy layer and leaves lots of scattered, drippy lace. The nose is a hop bomb full of resinous pine, rustic, spicy, some herbal, faint green hops, and juicy fruit notes of peach and passionfruit. The flavor is awesome, very high bitterness but balanced by a light biscuit and toasted caramel, still the same fruit notes, very rustic, pine resins all over. The palate is nearly full, less than lively, creamy, and oily. The finish is the bitterness just overwhelming any sweetness and lingering forever, rustic and resins, green hops left on the tongue. Extreme bitterness but some just barely balancing notes with the malts and juicy fruit notes. Very well put together beer and certainly not for the faint of heart. A true hop bomb without the intense green hop notes. Very nice beer from Mikkeller.

Little bit of caramel, mostly floral, citrus, and pine hops. Massively bitter. Alcohol is mildly noticable. Pretty good overall.

On draft at the Livermore Saloon. Wow. I haven’t been all that impressed with Mikkeller IPA’s, and I thought I was going to hate this one, but boy was I surprised. It was really good! It pours a dark orange color with an off white head. The aroma is thick with dense tropical fruit, peaches, mangos, and just a hint of caramel malt for balance. The flavor is floral with lechee, candy, peaches and a bitter, floral finish. Great complex hop flavor. The mouthfeel was full, but not cloying. Loved it.

Dark orange, white head. Very hoppy, sweet and fruity aroma. Flavour is bitter, hoppy, fruity and sweetish. Nice.

RolkaNation (141) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 1, 2012
Bottle poured into snifter. Nice dark orange, brownish color. Big, frothy slightly cappuccino colored head. Huge lacing. Looks great. Fairly typical aroma for an IPA but still great. Caramel, earthy hops, think resin, hints of tropical fruit and even a sweet carmelized sugar note. Nice. The 1000 IBUs are definitely present! A huge bitter hoppy blast upfront that lasts long post-swallow. Piney/earthy hops again and a nice sweet pineapple note on the finish. The bitterness lingers insanely long on the finish and continually flares up if you swallow. A bit much there. But overall...interesting, good stuff.

Bottle at a recent bottle share... Poured amberish, rusty orange with a white head. Citrusy hopped nose. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and carbonation. Bitter and hoppy. Sort of one dimensional in that aspect. Grapefruit and a linger hoppy, bittering finish.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark amber/copper color with a medium plus sized beige head and some floaties. The aroma has sweet caramel malts, juicy citrus with some light resin. The flavor has sweet caramel malt, tangy citrus and some resin. There is decent bitterness, but nothing to suggest 1000 ibu. I wonder how old the bottle was we tasted. Soft carbonation; good, but not great.

Tide (4362) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 20, 2012
Bottle at bar. Dark red color, white head. Intensely hoppy, bitter taste with strong hops and citrus. Finish with hops you really can't imagine. If you are a hops addict, this is the beer for you.

4.5
Matts_Property (837) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2012
Bottle. Pours murky orange brown with a small off white head. Aroma of grapefruit, candied sugars, resinous hops, balanced. Flavour is as noted in the aroma. Lots of resinous hops, grapefruit, citrus peel, candied fruits. Incredibly well balanced considering the ibu. Wow. So well done. Very bitter, very yummy. Thank you Mikkeller for brewing one of my favourite styles so wonderfully. I shall name my dog in your honour.

Make no mistake about it: this is experimental beer. An oz glass will lead to low balance and numb tongue. The mind will recoil with horror at the sheer volume of hop bitterness. It’s a rarity with good reason but not as objectionable as one would expect
