Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 10, 2012
Cloudy brown with a ruby red look, quarter inch creamy crown leaving behind tons of lacing. Sweet peachy aroma, something Ill call rotting apple, toffee, and the unmistakable aroma of warm milk. Massive bitterness in every sip with a big peach start. Earthy leather, mild wood, something that reminds me of smoked beef but not really. This a great beer, I cant stop drinking it. There is almost a peppery heat in the aftertaste. Flavour is full and thick but never in your face. Another great beer from Mikkeller that Ill probably never buy again due to price. Mark to me actually seems to high.

Bottle to pint (split between two of us). Looks good; deep and opaque. Smells outstanding! By far the beers best attribute. Tastes good; not as intense as I anticipated. I wonder what it tasted like fresh (and if it was better or worse). Palate is good too (considering). Overall, a much better beer than I expected.

Picked this up at Hunger Mountain Co-Op in Vermont. Taken right out of the fridge and poured into a Dogfish Head glass.

A - Pours with an appearance that resembles sewer water. Very milky with lots of sediment and an orange to brown mucky haze. The result is a thick orange beer that lets very little light through. The head was 3 fingers that had a leather color with a mix of big and small bubbles. The bubbles dont settle too fast and are very creamy in appearance as big bubbles go away.

S - Standard hop profile. Tons of grapefruit, tons of pine and citrus with hints of honey and vanilla. The aroma isnt what I expected though. Smells like a Double IPA but not a 1000 IBU IPA. lets see how the taste comes through.

T - Whoa. INTENSE bitterness. The bitterness overblows everything else in the bottle. Its remarkable how strong this beer is but the booze and hops mask all other flavors. Its intense for sure. Theres not much going on Im getting hop resin, loads of bitterness, pine and ruby red grapefruit.

M - 60% carbonation on a swish. Heavy bodied with a huge hop linger that sticks around forever. Its an almost syrupy / oily with viscosity thats unlike any other beer Ive had.

O - This is more of a proof of concept really. Theres nothing too memorable about this beer or worth buying again. Its just an intensely strong beer with insane bitterness.

gramity (1625) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 7, 2012
Pours a nice, redish amber, rather hazy though. Staying, medium, frothy, off-white head. Aroma is very hoppy, lots of fruit, apricot, peach, oranges and light pineapple. Medium carbonation, fat and oily mouthfeel with a very dry finish. Super hoppy flavour, dry, very bitter. Powerful bitterness that almost burns. So much hops and so much going on here...This was also the stickiest beer Ive ever had. Maybe they should rename it Mikkeller 1000 Sticky Fingers

Very complex. The hops arent as straightforward as you might expect, and not as bitter as expected. But it all comes together as a nice malt hop party in your mouth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wanted to try this one for a long time. Did expect more hops, but a nice complex beer

I had the Barrel Aged version a few years ago which I loved. Pours out a dark orange/rusty amber with a thick finger of yellow head. The head dies slowly to a thin cap but leaves tons of spotty and sticky lacing on the glass. The nose is potent and pungent with a ton of citrus fruits and a herbal pine note. A bunch of toffee and caramel sweetness and notes of grapefruit, tropical fruits, resin and some leafy floral hop goodness. The first taste hasa huge resin sweetness in the middle with some great citric fruit and a mild caramel malt. Bitterness encroaches on the fruits and malts quickly and leaves a massive dry and astrignent hop bitterness in the finish. Big resin smack on the tongue and a lingering aftertaste for minutes. Quite a bit of pine and floral spice hop on the finish. This is a simply fantastic IIPA. Doesnt hide what it is...a simply massively hopped beer.

brigg (655) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 2, 2012
(12.7oz bottle) Opaque cloudy brown copper body with a medium tan head. Aroma is sweet, caramel malt; lots of fruit, orange and grapefruit; some floral notes and a bit of musk. Medium to full bodied, chewy and slightly oily. Big flavor of bitter citrus hops, but balance with sweetness. Hops win in the end with a lasting finish and a touch of warming alcohol.

From notes. First reviewed 1/28/2011. Served on tap at Local Option in a tulip. This has a crazy color that I have never seen in a DIPA before, or any beer for that matter. Originally I thought it was amber, but it is actually more of a cherry ruby color with a subuded tan tint. The taupe head is perfectly creamy and retains perfectly well. It leaves a sheet of lace down the side of the glass. I have a feeling each layer of lace has more IBUs than most IPAs have in a glass. This smells dangerous. Skip the fruit, this is all alpha acid - it practically rips out the skin in my nostrils. Spicy notes, sweet caramel malt, and a bit of booze come through once I get over the pure bitterness. There is a strong caramel sweetness that hangs on for as long as it can before a blistering bitterness kicks in. Pure bittering hops & straight alpha acids, with a little pine and spice. The finish is destructively bitter. Paint-peeling bitterness cleans my mouth of any living organisms. Medium body for such a big ABV beer. Lots of hop resin in the residue. Well I cannot really drink anything after this, or at least taste anything. It actually gave me goosebumps to drink this. A bit pricey for me to ruin my palette very often. My bartender and I agree, this is a fun experiment.
