A: This beer has a reddish-amber clear body. It pours with a yellow-brown head with good lace and decent retention.

S: The scent of sweet caramel, strong pine and heat are the major notes backed up with some subtle floral characters.

T: This IPA has an interesting flavor profile. It starts out tasting like a very subtle IPA with some hoppiness and sweetness but then slowly the bitterness builds like a spicy pepper with increasingly intense piney hop flavor which is then balanced by the caramel sweetness that lingers on the tongue.

M: The beer has a medium body with light carbonation.

Overall this is a good IIPA but it could use a more complex hop flavor and use a bit more carbonation to balance that flavor.

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
