Mikkeller Hop Burn is both strong in flavor and smell. It’s just on the verge of feeling the alcohol as they conceal well anyway. The aftertaste lingers a while in your mouth so you can enjoy the advantages of this beer. But this beer is recommended to only drink one.

Bottle (33 cl) from bierkompass.de. Shady golden, medium white head. Alcoholic with muddled, vegetative hop aroma. Meidum bodied, soft carbonation. Dry with heavy bitterness. Fail.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Orangish straw, very hazy, moderate frothy white head, nice lacing. Strong sweet pithy aroma. A bit candyish in that there is a slight pixie stix powdery sugar aspect too. Similar tongue, not terribly bitter but flavorful. Sweet pithy citrusy flavor, but also has that pixie stix powder like sugary presense. Seems most Danish IIPAs have this. The 10% ABV is fairly well hidden, a bit warming but not hot. A bit above average.

Smells just like orange juice. Very hoppy and citrus tasting that lingers. Sweetness at the end balances the extreme hoppiness nicely. A huge ipa I’m a big fan of.

Good imperial IPA tastes something like drinking liquified hops and pine cones, nice bitter yums!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Blue Monk. Cloudy grapefruit coloured body, with a good amount of head and lace. Hoppy aroma. Grapefruit and orange citrus taste. Big IBU but not a palate eraser, though a big astringent. Good drinkability.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy deep golden pour with a orange tint, frothy creamy off white head lots of sticky lacing .... aroma of chewy caramel malts, citrusy fruity hops (light lemon and orange) .... taste is of rindy citrusy hops (orange and lemons), spicy and bitter with caramel and lightly toasted malts on the back end .... finish is of a bitter/spicy hop "burn" that lingers .... abv hidden well ... mouthfeel is lively and a little oily ... solid considering the abv
