Quick Take: While lacking complexity, Mikkeller’s 1000 IBU beer is much more refined than I anticipated. The 1000 IBU aspect is a bit of a gimmick and the cost is a little steep, but the follow through on a quality, mega-hopped beer makes this one worth trying. You have to be in an IPA state of mind and want the dirtiest, most lingering hops bitter finishes I have come across yet, but even IPA interested people can find something to like here.
Here is a great article from Bear Flavored for the beer curious, hop heads and homebrewers alike. If you’ve ever wondered why two beers with the exact same IBUs can have wildly varying levels of bitterness or just want to know more about the art of hops, this is a great read.
