   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 17/20
popery (2074) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 2, 2010
1000 IBU pours fire brick red/carnelian with a big thick ecru-colored head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is a smrgsbord of hop flavors: floral, pine resin, candied oranges, spruce, grapefruit rind, marijuana, grass, crushed leaves - leaving hops - caramel, bread, malt extract. That said, its not nearly as strong of an aroma as I was expecting and this is the biggest fault that separates it from the heights of the style. The flavor loses nearly all of the malt flavor and just hits with a huge pine resin bitterness. This isnt the bitterest hop bomb Ive ever tried, but it has the longest bitter hop finish. Theres some sense of malt sweetness, but its hard to appreciate as my palate takes refuge from the ceaseless onslaught of hops. A good five minutes after my last sip, it still feels like my mouth is full of resiny essential oils squeezed from pine needles and grapefruit pith. Mouthfeel is about medium and I would actually prefer it a bit thicker.

LearninBeer (512) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JAN 15, 2017
The aroma is hops and malt, herbs and grass, caramel and bread. Pours a nice brown/orange with a big off white head, mostly lasting and excellent lacing. The taste is medium bitter, smooth. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish bitter and long. Very Good!!!

ogniskowicz (740) - POLAND - DEC 27, 2016
Aromat dość nikły - spodziewałem się więcej. Jest trochę iglakw, trochę przejrzałych tropikalnych owocw, jest odrobina cytrusa. W smaku początkowo lekko słodko-owocowe z następującą rzeczywiście sporą goryczką (choć mnie nie rzuciła osobiście na kolana) o charakterze albedo grejpfruta. Generalnie niezłe piwo, choć chyba najmniej mi podeszło ze wszystkich IIPA Mikkellera. Takie bardziej prężenie fiutka - wolę bardziej zbalansowane piwa ;)

szymonskc (663) - Skrcz, POLAND - DEC 15, 2016
Zapach intensywny, słd, cytrusy, karmel, trawa, alkohol. Kolor bursztynowy, mętne. Piana średnio obfita, drobna, średnio trwała, zdobi szkło. W smaku słodkie, pełne, słd, trawa, karmel, cytrusy, alkohol. Goryczka łodygowa, zalegająca, wysoka, wysycenie niskie.

Michael27 (1289) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 14, 2016
Krass! Aus der Flasche getrunken (Weihnachtskalender von Mikkeller). Trbes Amber mit feinporiger Schaumkrone im Glas. in der Nase strenge Grapefruchtnoten. Im Antrunk berreife Sdfrchte und dann aber kommen die IBUs... die dann auch bleiben. Und das ist gut so.

Bidd (21) - POLAND - DEC 9, 2016
Average hoppy aroma. Very good lacing and dark&dirty amber color, quite hazy. Average taste, but heavy hoppy. Not as heavy as i imagined! Average palate. I dont feel this 9,6% so its a quite achievement. Overall nice beer but not very good.

AtronSeige (1398) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - DEC 3, 2016
Aroma: Medium-high grapefruit, rich, Appearance: Hazy, copper body. Rocky, tan head. Fair retention. Good lacing Flavour: Medium-high smooth bitterness. Medium peach moonshine/brandy. Dry finish with lingering hear, peach and bitterness. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation, creamy. Overall: The alcohol is the strongest component - for an DIPA I would have liked it to be the hops. No off-flavours. Fair. 330 ml bottle, poured. 22A. Double IPA

simontomlinson (97) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2016
Off white creamy head stayed well on an opaque, murky, soil coloured body. Much darker than I expected. Hoppy, caramel aroma & there is a faint sweeter smell but I cant put my finger on it. Very thick on the palate. Smooth to the fore with a prickly back. Caramel tastes to the front with a slightly burnt background followed by a hoppy, bitter back of pith, citrus, grapefruit, bitter lemon & hints of clove. This very much reminds me of Brewdog - Hardcore IPA. Now the 1000 IBU bit - whilst drinking it tastes like a bitter DIPA, wait a minute or so between mouthfuls & the bitterness really hits & it hits hard. Its like youve eaten a bowlful of grapefruit, lemon & lime pith with the juices of the fruit poured over. Superb DIPA - If you like your beers hoppy & bitter.

likeatrainwreck (521) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2016
Murky dark amber beer with a rocky tan head. Intense pine, citrus, resin, grapefruit, lemon. Long bitter finish, but as as bitter as youd be led to believe. Actually very drinkable. Nice.
