Davros (2994) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 9, 2012
Pours murky copper with a small fading head. Nose shows piny, resinous hops in abundance with a similar amount of caramel and golden syrup underneath. Crazily full-on flavours, a lengthy assault of tongue-coating, abrasive hops. Big piny and grapefruit notes again, with some caramel in the background thats almost completely hidden. The bitter seems to linger indefinitely...

RIXBREW (11) - USA - MAY 7, 2012
On tap at firkin of libertyville. Pretty dark amber color for imperial ipa. Malty and hoppy and very bitter but balanced overall. Residual hoppy bitterness lingers on palate considerably. Unique as imperial ipas go and highly recommended for a hop heads bucket list! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GODiSSOUTHERN (390) - Virginia, USA - MAY 2, 2012
Extremely sweet and bitter. Flavors of citrus, earth, and eucalyptus all come through. Not extremely harsh, but definitely has a lingering bitterness to it.

jbmanz (76) - Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Draft. Snifter. Dark honey color. Aromas piney, little citrus. Strong bitter taste, well named beer- not for everybody! Maybe grapefruit in there too. Rare find on draft, but worth the rare price!

jstraw (1966) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Murky caramel with decent, creamy, tan head / Bright, big, nose of caramel, pine, caraway?, and citrus / Full body, creamy, chewy, and sweet, with big hop bite, and good, bitter finish / Rich flavors of fresh caramel, cut pine, grapefruit, orange, pineapple, and herb / A monster, but beautifully balanced.

kryon (3083) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2012
On tap at Mikkeller Bar Pours amber with low head Aromas of caramel malts, citrusy fruit and some sweet fruits. Almost red ale in taste. Very bitter ending but not near to what id expected. However nice caramelly taste. Not as hoppy as id expected but i guess most hops are bittering. Well done!

GlassBrass440 (316) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 28, 2012
Poured on tap at Local Option in Chicago. Thick white head sat atop a cloudy, yellow-brown, swampish beer. The head persisted to the last sip and left some lacing all the way down. The abundant aroma was of noble hops, earthy and flowery. Like walking through an alpine meadow. Flavor is again of noble hops, but its almost buried below the overwhelming bitterness which persists long after the last sip. This one is all about the aroma.

24.04.2012. On tap at Henrik, Bergen. Dark amber brown colour with off-white head. Malty aroma with strong aromatic hopping. Very rich beer with strong body and lots of flavours of hops. There is also some malt sweetness. Very good beer with a strong lastimg bitter aftertaste.

DuffMan (9920) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle, shared with mmmIPA, in a head to head tasting with Haandbryggeriet Dobbel Dose-- the Scandanavian DIPA Battle! Round one.... FIGHT!!! Both were hazy amber, but Haand was more golden while Mik 1000 was more reddish. Both had enormous mountainous frothy bubbly heads that laced generously. Dobbel Dose had a very piney nose, with minty and bitter citrus accents. Mikkeller had a sweeter citrus aroma with tropical fruit accents. On the palate, both were enormously hoppy with sweet supporting malt structure, but the Dobbel Dose was more bitter and coniferous in the finish, pithy even. The 1000 IBU had richer malt structure and a more complex aromatic hop character while still imparting a lasting bitterness in the finish. We both preferred the Mikkeller 1000 IBU, but thought that both brews were excellent. Dobbel Dose had more gritty sediment that became intrusive toward the end.
