pintbypint (3012) - Edmonton, Alberta, - AUG 24, 2012
330ml brown bottle, black and white label. Gold pour with some fine haze, whitish head is quite large, very dense extra creamy, clumpy and frothy. A very large amount of thick lacing is left coating the glass. The nose has thick caramel with some grain in the background, some citrus, light pine, folral with honey notes - much sweeter than expected. Taste has sweet caramel, grains, grassy hops, citrus, honey and alcohol. Finishes with a light citrusy bitterness, alcohol is noticable, light grains trail out. Mid-to full bodied, medium carbonation. In the end - strong and sweet malts, moderate hops, has some double IPA characteristics, but the overall verdict is a bit too much sweetness, hops end up taking a backseat. The burn is more from the alcohol.

Bottle. Orange golden pour. Aroma of caramelised malt, grain, pale malt, pine and booze. Taste of strong pine, caramel, boozy burn, harsh dry bitters and citrus. Good beer, but the hop burn high had more depth.

AbouAli (195) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 28, 2015
letís do the comparison. The low is more citrus but with less flavor than the ale one. The both dontí have a lot of malt flavor what itís normal and quite good for the style... very good beer, you donít feel the alcohol.

Bottle, 330 ml from Za Popenít, Ljubljana. Pours orange with small white head. Fruity hop aroma. Dry with pine hoppy bitterness. Well hidden alcohol, but rather unbalanced. Interesting brew.

markas101 (2056) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - DEC 24, 2014
33 cl bottle, Calgary, AB, Canada via Zyn. Hazy deep gold colour, massive hop-nectarine aroma. Grassy, syrupy with some honey, then expanding pine resin finish. High alcohol at the end, nice long burn. Great.

UXO (910) - CANADA - DEC 20, 2014
Pours hazy pale amber with one finger of light tan head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, moderate lacing. (4/5) Nose is aggressive citrus and tropical fruit, mild caramel malt. (9/10) Taste is moderate caramel sweet, intensely bitter pine resin ahead of citrus and tropical fruit, building spice. (9/10) Medium body and slightly oily texture, low sustained carbonation, and a spicy, lingering bitter finish, with an immediate warming in the gut from the high ABV, the high IBUs, or both. (5/5) This is very similar to its brother from another mother, the Hop Burn High (the major difference being thatís an ale instead of a lager like this one). Massive, ridiculous IBUís - this is so massively bitter that the caramel malt is initially more apparent, because the bitter receptors just max out and give up. It actually gets more bitter as the initial malt flavour subsides. So, yeah - the Mikkeller Draft Bear that I earlier this evening said was the best Imperial Pilsner I ever had? Short reign. (18/20)
