Draught @ The Olympic Tavern. I’ve 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 I’m really suprised at how well balanced this is-it just doesn’t get any better than this. mrhoppy (1288) - Santa Clara, California, USA - SEP 2, 2012
This beer is a hopheads dream. Bitter as all get out. Chewy hops. Lovin it. I have always skipped this beer because one bottle was ten bucks. I found it on tap at a beer tasting bar for one buck. Lucky me. beholder (58) - Poznań, POLAND - JAN 31, 2014
One badass beer.
Appearance: Nice, a bit hazy amber in colour with a yellowish, thick head that lasted very long.
Aroma: Most double IPA’s I’ve tasted had a very sweet or alcohol aroma, but not this one. Amazing hoppy, citrusy aroma from the bottle and even better from the glass. Very intense.
Taste: Extreme hoppy bitterness, little bit of caramel, resin and earthy flavours. Tons of citrus. No alcohol aftertaste, just how I like it.
Mouthfeel: soft carbonation, medium to high bodied.
Overall: Never have I tasted an IIPA so amazingly good. Best IIPA I’ve ever had and probably one of the best beers I’ve had so far.
Enjoyed from a teku glass.

Aroma: grass, citrus, herbs; Appearance: dark pale red, medium vanishing head; Taste: heavy bitterness, medium sourness, medium sweetness; Palate: bitter finish, average carbonation, oily texture, medium body
Grandiose DIPA, with almost narcotic amount of hops (some bits even left in the beer), ravishing with bitterness yet still allowing the aroma and maltiness to build. Sip with caution! This beer is an experience. stoigniew (128) - Łęczna, POLAND - MAR 21, 2015
Aromat słodko kwaśny tropikalny i ananasowy. W smaku piepszony hardkor. Za odczucie początkowo 4 bo jednak zbyt hardkorowo - daję jednak 5 bo jest to "1000" i ma być hardkorowo. Jeśli Mikkeller dążył do osiągnięcia maksimum absolutnej goryczki to udało się. Goryczka miesza się z kwaśnością i intensywnym czerwonym grejpfrutem oraz cytryną - maksymalna kwaskowość - w żadnym wypadku belgijska ale cytrusowa, chmielowa i wypychana przez intensywną, agresywną gorycz. Pijalność nie jest wysoka i tak być powinno - potrzeba czasu by to spokojnie wypić. Piwo jednak jest mega ekstremalne i smaczne. Daję max. bo oddaje to czego się spodziewałem pomimo że nie do końca taki hardkor toleruję - właśnie na to liczyłem.

Nosz kurwa zajebiste. Gorzkie jak Benzoesan danatorium i żółć z wątroby świni razem zmieszane. W smaku chyba lepszy nawet niż Harnaś. Nie wiem jaki kolor bo piłem z butelki. JohhnyB (188) - CROATIA - APR 25, 2016
UPDATED: APR 27, 2016 Bottle. Murky amber color with small but long lasting tan head. Hopes, hopes and more hopes with citrus, roasted malts, yeast and some alcohol in taste.
More hops. Lots of bitterness, full body. I enjoyed this beer like a pig in a mud. verlix (1) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - MAY 2, 2017 does not count
Aroma: pine and grapefruit. Appearannce: brown with a dark orange tone, hazy. Taste is amazing - slightly sweet and malty at start with an amazing bitternes in the aftertaste. Pretty bitter, but bitternes is amazing and very well balanced. One of the best beers I have ever tasted. drgoodbyte (1) - - JUL 21, 2017 does not count

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2011 This beer is art. OMFG, OMFG, OMFG. There is an INSANE amount of hops in this beer. Complex hops flavors too, bitter resin, pine... but then citrus, grapefruit, sour unripened berries. There is a good amount of sugary, malty, caramel sweetness to this beer as well, which tames the unbelievable hop content with artful grace. Even the mouthfeel is well calculated. It starts out crisp and lively, and then smooths off in to a silky texture that helps relieve the bitter shock you receive from the hops. Absolutely incredible... only the aroma needs work. Pliny is perfect in the aroma department, this is close.
