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. alexsdad06 (11222) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2012
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 (4564) - 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. 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. EnnuiDivine (23) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 15, 2012
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

375 ml bottle pours a dark orange amber color with a small white head. Huge hop nose of grapefruit, pine resin. Full bodied, bitter finish, glad I finally got to try this one CapFlu (5132) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2012
(375ml bottle) crazy dark and hoppy. Very sweet and watercress. Not nearly as good as I'd hoped,

Pours hazy tangerine, fine head. Serious aromas of pine resin and ester. Initially tastes somewhat sweet, with some orange and maybe apricot notes; they give way to a satisfying bitterness which is discernibly very bitter, although not proportionally bitter considering the IBU count. I would have liked to have tasted a little more supporting malt and more floral hops, but still a great IPA; more than just a novelty. JoeMcPhee (10129) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2012
Tap at the Press Club. Deep brown pour. Very sticky and sweet aroma with a lot of sweet malt. A little bit of brown sugar and toffee. Really savoury and intense with a salty backnote that is quite intense. Very interesting and tasty - but more of an evening sipper. Reminds me of Old Crustacean.

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