Ahhhh 1000 rates. What better beer to mark this milestone than Mikkeller 1000 IBU? Pours a murky dark amber with an off white head. Big funky hop aroma dominates. Taste is massively hoppy with citrus, piney hops but also remarkably balanced. Really wonderful chewy malt backing. Finish is sublime. Excellent beer.

I have now been to the edge and back! Smells fairly normal for an ipa. But woah! What a bitter taste! Loads and loads of bitterness! Bam! It hits! Oh and by the way, it pours a murky brown color

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2012 Poured a murky brownish color with lots of sediment. Foamy off-white head. Aroma is hoppy with apricot and pine needles. Not as hoopy in the aroma as I expected. Taste starts off normal with some.fruit and creamy malts. Finish is VERY hoppy with pine and grass. Overall not as gross as I expected and pretty flavorful.

I enjoyed this yet it wasnt featuring many complexities.The aroma was lacking. It has a nice taste up front and of course finishes insanely dry. Pours thick and deep orange gold. Tons of sediment. A good brew...but kinda gimmicky to me. I get that it takes talent to brew something with this many IBUs yet this doesnt rival IIPA like dreadnaught or Pliny. I still like it overall.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 21, 2011
37.5 cL bottle courtesy of Chris, tasted with the barrel-aged version side-by-side with Chris and Dan. Served in a goblet. Pours hazy orange-amber with a small tan head. The head fades to a thin remnant and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose is sharp and hoppy, with huge notes of flowers and grapefruit, along with pine, light biscuit malt and pale malts. The flavour is sharp, intensely bitter and hoppy throughout with lots of acidity. There is a small amount of malts up front but they are immediately overpowered, never to return. The finish goes on forever with a complex bitter quality. On the palate, it is full in body with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is an interesting beer with so much hops that it deserves a category of its own. It hits you over the head with sharp, high-alpha hops. As extreme as it is, I actually enjoyed it and would definitely try it again. 2011-04-16

Pour hazy amber off white head good lace. Aroma big pine/floral hops, some citrus, not to much else. Taste palate destroying hops, this was one of the few that wasnt balanced and wasnt overly enjoyable. MF cloying full body quite boozy with a destructive bitterness. Overall cool but didnt enjoy.

Niko100 (2796) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2011
Hazy amber/copper color; Medium creamy body; Aroma of pine hops, citrus, floral, & caramel malt; Flavor of sweet malt, caramel, rich pine hops, resin, and citrus (notably grapefruit); Finish is bitter and does linger awhile; Nicely balanced considering all the hops; Overall, one dimensional (as expected) - but very good.

bottle thanks to bu11zeye. poured cloudy amber with a beige head. aroma was caramel and pine. flavor was much the same plus the heat of the alcohol. body was full with medium carbonation.

Brandman (2927) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 7, 2011
Dark orange body, thick tan head, floaters. Aroma of herbal liquer, alcohol, some berries. Flavour adds belgian yeast. Even some hop profile. Bitter. No shit? But lame for 1000 IBUs due to thick body.
