look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Poured into Captain Lawrence tulip glass, nice 1 inch head retains to a half inch all the way through. Light red/amber color and lacing around the top.

Smell: Pine resin, citrus, grapefruit.

Taste: Earthy pine neetles, toffee, caramel

Mouthfeel: Sticky, very chewy for an IPA.

Great beer in general, I've had this before but not for about a year. Grabbed the bottle on a whim since it's been so long. Solid beer and even burps up nice too! ... Excuse me....

Mikkeller 1000 IBU is a sweet bitter DIPA. It's a fun novelty beer but I would never choose to drink it again. Maybe it'd be different fresh... not sure.

A: Dark red colour and a 1 cm head that lasts very well. 4.5

S: Nice citrus hop aroma. Pretty strong but not complex. 4

T: Malty with immediate strong bitterness. It tastes like citrussy grass juice. It's not really that pleasant. Very sweet aftertaste. 2.5

M: A little flat for a DIPA. 2.5

O: 2.5

this is an epic brew, easily the best ipa ive ever had, including heady, pliny, and all the rest of them. this is sensationally powerful and different, and is deserving of much more recognition. it pours a perplexingly dark copper color, more red than brown or orange, with some yeast floaters and a prominent off white head that leaves so sticky lacing on the glass. the nose major. it smells like ive put my face in liquid hops, its so oily and dank, bitter as hell, but also supported by some darker malts that give the beer a real mature and sophisticated aroma. the flavor is like nothing ive ever tasted. its high alpha for sure, just like fresh hops through a juicer, but somehow concentrated, its piney mostly, but theres some really bitter citrus in there as well, like the pith from a grapefruit. its got some malt backbone under all of the hops, but it plays only a supporting role here. the hop profile of this beer is so intense, its so fresh, and man oh man is it bitter. this is my fantasy playing out, i swear to god its so so so hoppy. the mouthfeel is perfect, the body is full, the carbonation is just enough, and the hop bitterness is almost caustic, almost burning the insides of my mouth. its not puckery like a sour, but it literally is contorting my face somehow. the alcohol is strong but it fits in nicely. i taste this even half an hour after my last sip. its impossible to describe how good this really is. easily the biggest, meanest ipa out there right now. incredible!

A big splurge from Bottle Rev in Raleigh.

Grainy, earthy orange-to-brown pour with a 1/2 finger of darker cream head. While there is not much head to start with, what is there lingers well into the glass. Thick lace all around the glass.

Nose is a little more subdued than I was expected. Tons of biscuit malt, a bit of caramel malt, and then lots of fruity hop esters. Plenty there, just expecting - perhaps unreasonably - more.

Whatever I missed in the nose was made up for and more in the taste. Crazy bitter. Biscuit malt with a touch of caramel start things off and then the craziness kicks in. Grapefruit and pine, lots of it. Bitter pepper, ripe yellow onion, resinous hops - and then the afterburn kicks it up. Intense alcohol and hop burn in the finish.

Feel is grainy and thick. Liquid bread comes to mind. Quite substantial for even a DIPA.

If the price point were lower, I'd get it again. Given that a 12.7oz bottle is more than I'd pay for most really good sixers, I'll be one and done on this one - unless Santa is nice to me this year. Definitely glad I tried it.
