HighWine (959) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2011
Bottle. Pours a lot darker than I had expected. Copper brown color in the glass. Foamy off white head with the consistency of a homemade marshmallow. Superb lacing. I poured relatively slowly but still got a TON of large particles in my glass. It looks like a science experiment! Milder aroma than I expected. Sweet at first then hop aromas mixed with booze. It smells like a hop-infused simple syrup. The taste starts off with flowery hops followed by honey and then bitingly bitter pine hops that fills the back of your mouth. Medium-full body but the hop bitterness lingers a while. The nearly 10% ABV is well hidden. Good beer.

slitcher (267) - Freeport, Illinois, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Draught @ The Olympic Tavern. Ive been waiting a LONG time to try this one (thanks Zak!). Pours a cloudy amber with a thin head that leaves a beautiful lacing. Aromas of pine and grapefruit. Flavor is total hops with the perfect balance of malt sweetness....this is the ULTIMATE hop head nectar!!!It Im really suprised at how well balanced this is-it just doesnt get any better than this.

dm9831 (1512) - Monee, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2011
dark copper, small tan head, lots of lace. nose of malt, alcohol, trace of hops. flavor begins with sweet malt on the front end, but a strong bitterness follows on the back end. medium bodied, bitter finish. i really like the bitter hit of this one. but there is not a lot more to it than that. still, id buy this one again.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - SEP 19, 2011
Bottle. Pours a hazy and dark copper beer with a firm offwhite/orange head. The aroma is malt and hops with citrus. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is bitterness. Overall a really good beer with a good balance despite the high level of hops.

Sully (1380) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - SEP 17, 2011
So, I purchased this expecting a mild and malty beer with a pale colour, fleeting nose and forgettable character. IBU means Insipid Brew Unfortunately, right? Shaaaawinggggg. Good presentattion in the glass even though there trip to here must have resulted in the formation of some significant floaties. Fine head and consistent lacing. Well, with this ABV and hop content this should be a given. The nose is complex, grapefruit dominates in my mind with pine and citrus notes as well. Funny that most cleaning agents these days have the same characteristics. The hop flavour of course dominates but it is not so unbalanced as to be off the scale. Still, a great nightcap beer, zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Habanero (4374) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2011 Of course, my raiting No.1000 must be Mikkellers: 1000 IBU. Bottled. Pours hazy and amber with a huge, foamy, off-white head. Good residual lacing. Wonderful hoppy nose with grapefruit, pine and notes of caramel. Again powerfull hoppy flavor with citrus, pine, peach and notes of caramel + nuts. Medium to full bodied, oily texture and average carbonation. More dry finish and an expected long and strong duration of bitterness. An excellent brew but you really have to love bitter brews.

fiulijn (19824) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2011
Draught at Nya Trls, Malm
First pour of the day (I hate that); muddy amber color; generous yoghurt-like head, quite persistent.
The hop aroma, very fruity, mango and oranges, can be felt from meters away; later, also some lemon and cheese rinds. The mouthfeel is soft, the flavor is almost creamy: sweet toffee and caramel flavor, loads of piney and citrusy resins, all very well blended. Long final. Another powerful and satisfying brew by Mikkeller.

dumontn (530) - St. Joseph, Michigan, USA - SEP 3, 2011
Appearance is muddy brown with a 2 finger super dense, tight-bubbled European style head with unreal retention. Aroma is pine forest, caramel candy with tons of resin lurking beneath, reminds me more of a barleywine than an IPA. Taste is intense pine needles, resin, tannins, (licorice?), lightly roasted bread, then tons more resin. Body is medium, creamy, avg carbonation, ridiculously unbalanced bitter finish. Overall, I love IPAs but this is a little too much. Any beer claiming a theoretical 1000IBU is certain to be unbalanced, but if anyone can pull it off, its Mikkeller!
