I found this to be quite enjoyable. if this is 1000 ibus, im surprised. its less bitter than some less than 100 ibu brews. but the flavor profile of the hops is quite good. for the price, I probably wont revisit, but its good none the less.

From elcervecero. In Duvel glass. Watching Breaking Bad 4x11. Surprinsingly drinkable for its high IBUs. There are DIPAs with a much more disgusting bitterness. Its bitterness isnt the best one but isnt bad either. The aroma is great soft and nice. Could repeat if it werent so expensive (6€) Every beerman should taste it to experience a 1000 IBUs brew and im sure they wont be dissapointed

On tap in a 12oz snifter. Poured an almost light-orange/amber, with a thick, one finger head. Smells of hops and almost sweet. I must say that this beer tasted entirely different from what I anticipated for a name that promises such intense bitterness. Not nearly as bitter as many of the bold west-coat ipas. That said, without the bitterness, there was a strong taste of hops, like drinking an ultrafiltrate of the hop plant itself. The closest I can get to describing this flavor is this: it tastes like the hop plant smells. That taste was compounded by a strong malty sweetness, which ultimately gave the beer a thick, warming mouthfeel. Overall, not even remotely what I was expecting, but pleasantly surprising.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. Dark amber, surprisingly dark for an IPA. It had a thick 1 finger head with plenty of lacing down the glass.

Plenty of bitter hop in the aroma, but some of the booze is coming out in the nose as well.

This beer is what it says it is. Bitter, with notes of chicory and radicchio on the finish. There is a pleasant amount of carbonation which helps curb the bitterness, and the booze detected on the nose is well hidden in the taste.

As the glass warmed up, hints of orange and spice broke through. Solid effort.

For the amount of hops, this is a surprisingly balanced beer. Not overly sweet (the way hops are normally balanced)...just very drinkable. Not the kick-in-the-teeth hops experience I was expecting...and that was, in a way, kind of a pleasant surprise.

APPEARANCE - Opaque, cloudy, foamy, lots of lacing, sediment, amber 4FH that really lasts.

AROMA/SCENT - Hops, pine.

TASTE - Hops, bitter, nutty, pine, coffee.

MOUTHFEEL/PALATE/TEXTURE - Thick, smooth, very lingering, warming, very frothy.

VALUE - $9.60 for an 11-oz bottle. A bit pricey, even for an import.

OVERALL/DRINKABILITY - 1,000 IBU is an advertising gimmick, but this beer is worth a try. It is bitter, but that's mostly because it's not malty at all, just zero sweetness to it.
