I remember when I heard they were getting a keg of this at my bar and I couldn't wait for them to finally put it on. As a huge hop head I couldn't wait for the experience that was to come. I know that the mouth can't actually perceive 1000 ibus, but this gets you pretty close to what that experience would be like. Makes your head want to explode with hoppy bitterness.
The beer pours a hazy beige with a nice creamy head. Some lacing, but not overly impressive.
The nose is of course hoppy. Alot of pine resin and hop oil coming through. I can't really smell the malts on this, but I may have inhaled too deeply and burned my olfactory sensors out on all the hops. lol.
The taste was definitly hoppy. Pine hops,a ton of hop oils and some alcohol solvency, but not much. The beer finishes with some citrusy notes. The hops overpower everything in this beer. You couldn't start your night off with this, or you wouldn't be able to taste anything else the rest of the night. There isn't enough water to cleanse the palate from being hop fried... but what do you expect from a beer called 1000 IBU's?
