3.75/5 rDev -3.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
On draft – into a snifter
Appearance- Orange/amber color with a finger of creamy head, which left thick lacing behind.
Smell- Lots of pine with some citrus thrown in, fairly resinous and a little caramel malt balancing it out.
Taste- Starts out with caramel malt up front, then you are smacked with the hops. Citrus first; pineapple and grapefruit. Then turning into an evergreen forest, tons of pine, some sap, and pretty resinous. The linger is straight up dank weed. (After the first few ounces, you no longer notice any of the caramel malt)
Mouthfeel- Creamy body, then turning super dry, with an extremely bitter linger. (I ate a whole hop cone once, and couldnt really taste anything for a few hours, this is every bit as bitter)
Overall- Good overall, though it does become fairly one note after a while. One glass is plenty enough at a time, though I would drink it again. Much better on draft then the split bottle I had a little while back.
Serving type: on-tap

So what would 1000 Ibu's taste like, feel like, or smell like? It turns out that the end result is the ultimate resin taste and sticky-dry texture but the grassy and woody character adds woodsy rustic and charm.
Darker than the common IPA, its garnet hues lead straight into the beer's toffee and biscuity start. But that's all overcome when the dominance of hops set in quickly. Citrus, pine and fresh-cut grass swirl about the olfactories while those supporting caramel and maple sweetensses struggle to contend.
White sharp grapefruit ribs, tea-like herb, dried bitter orange, shaven sassafras, sawdust, and pecan all begin to sculpt the bulk of taste while a deep drying sensation sets in. Despite its "imperial status, the reckless abundance of hops bullies its way toward bitter dominance and chases all sweet balances away; much like standard American IPA
Diving unapologetically into a resiny, earthy, and stemmish finish- the way the beer closes is uncomfortably dry and spicily heated, but still tantalizingly peppery and controlled. Its unique taste is balanced like IPA but at elevated alcohol which shouldn't happen with such harmony, but yet it does.
Though the taste bogs down with its own seeping dankness, and rootish quality; this ale rivals the most bitter beers that have ever been tasted.

500ml bottle into pint glass
A- Dark copper. You can't see through this beer. Head is about 1-2 fingers, tan. Lots of sediment.
S - Super hop bomb-pine. A bit like fresh Zombie Dust
T- You get what you smell- hop bomb! Tons of hops on hops. Pine and resin.
M- Smooth and drinkable
O- I know you should judge a beer on its own merits, but this reminded me of a mix of Zombie Dust and Daisy Cutter. Both amazing beers. The is a very good hop bomb.
