kryon (3172) - 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 (321) - 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.

DuffMan (10070) - 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.

TheBeerGod (6168) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Bottle. Murky bronze with a tall, thick, foamy tan head. Strong pine and citrus notes in the aroma along with sweet malt, pineapple, caramel and floral hops. Taste is big piney hops, citrus oils, hop resins, caramel, sweet malt, pineapple, faint maple syrup and fresh wet hops. Body is medium-full with a thick resinous, syrupy feel and mild, dense carbonation. Lingering hop bitterness throughout. Ends with more caramel, pineapple juice, hop resins, whole leaf fresh hops, pine needles, sweet malt, lightly candied citrus and faint maple syrup. Damn tasty!

Foffern (1803) - Bod, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2012
On tap at Henrik. Pours a very hazy brown colour with a pretty small off-white head. Malty and fruity aroma with grapefruit and hops. The flavour is surprisingly less bitter than expected, and is more sweet and reminds me of liqueur or maybe a british barley wine. There are also some fruit and apricot here, and with a dry hoppy ending. A rich and a bit sticky mouthfeel. This is really a powerful beer with a pleasant heavy bitterness.

VertBaconStrips (2380) - Blerkablerka, VENEZUELA - MAR 20, 2012
Oooo! The reg version of one of my fave beers. Poured a very dark amber brew that is not clear with a dirty tan head made of large bubs and leaves a total mess. Sharp grapefruit nose followed by fuzzy peach goodness, sweet caramel, rrfg, lemon and fresh bread, solid fruity nose. The taste is very good with a healthy slightly powdery spice that end up morphing into an almost painful endless hardcore bitter after taste. Rrgf, more bitterness of both the pine and the grapefruit, caramel, peaches, sweetness, more harshness in the form of bitter abuse that starts to impose its will at about mid sip, holy crap that bitter quality is killer especially after many small, quick sips. Very good carb, nice sweetness right before mid sip and then the onslaught of bitter. Excellent beer - there are better one but.

Kevster (344) - Bradenton, Florida, USA - MAR 20, 2012
Bottle to Tulip. Pours a cloudy golden brown with a thick light tan head that is fully lasting with the lacing sticking to the glass. Hoppy aroma is citrusy with hints of floral. Flavor is a mouthfull of hoppy citrus with a sweet bitterness that has a syrupy creamy texture. Fairly easy drinking if your a hop head!
