Aroma: resin, lemon; Appearance: pale orange, hop residues, long tall creamy head; Taste: intense bitterness, medium sweetness, medium sourness; Palate: full body, thick texture, long finish, soft carbonation Refreshing lager with a delicious mouthfeel. Noble not astringent bitterness. Spicy but not appalling. Some blonde hay notes but without excess. For magical moments :-)

Cerveza hecha con levadura lager aromática y muy potente, peligrosa pues entra sola y tiene diez grados una maravilla de nuestros daneses favoritos mikeller.

storskurk (119) - DENMARK - OCT 24, 2013
Sødlig alkohol og amerikansk humle duft. Varm sødme og blid humle vælter over tungen. Blid bitterhed der vokser sammen med alkoholen og afsluttes flot rent som et shot. Bærer de 10+ ret flot. Mærkes i duft og eftersmag. Opvisning i IIPA men ku godt køre mere bitterhed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mkel07 (3725) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 9, 2012
330ml bottle. Looks thick in the glass with a deep head and a golden honey amber colour. As expected there is plenty of big floral and citrus hop aromas with passion fruit also in the mix. Thick and oily in the mouth with a great hop flavour. Sits in the mouth and lingers on the palate.

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 that’s an ale instead of a lager like this one). Massive, ridiculous IBU’s - 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)

Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, NORWAY - NOV 28, 2012
White foamy head that leaves some lacing on the glass. Clear golden liquid. Sweet aroma of a barleywine. Taste goes from a hoppy start, that mysteriously evolves into a licorice-like carameltasting ipa. Some bitterness in the aftertaste. Will definately try to get my hands on more of these.

Very surprising beer here. The "burn" is not really over the top for me. It was more of a warming sensation in the aftertaste, like a Cognac. This is definitely a hoppy beer, but not a bitter bomb. The malts do a nice job of balancing some of the power out of the hops but you still get a beautiful piney aroma and taste.

First impression that really stuck with me from this one was, 10%?? No way. I have never tasted a strong beer with such well hidden alcohol note. Aroma is hoppy and malty with definite pilsner tones. Some particles floating around indicating a natural and hopped up beer, looks not so tasty but still i like it. Tastewise my favourite Lager fermented beer, the balance is hard to describe with anything else than flawless. Bottle from Mikkellers webshop.

GBZ59 (1181) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - JUN 17, 2012
Grifo. Vaso de ˝ Pinta. Color ámbar anaranjado y apariencia niblada. Corona blanco amarillenta, algodonosa y con buena retención. Collares copiosos. Sabores y aromas de sutil malta carmaelo, resinas, fruta tropical y pomelo. Contundente pero agradable amargor en el intermedio que permanece hasta el final. Paladar oleoso, cremoso y sabroso. Cuerpo intenso y carbonatación extra suave. Refrescante, deliciosa. El ABV no resulta molesto en absoluto. On-tap. ˝ pint glass. Orangish amber in color, foggy appearance. Yellowish white, rocky, well retention crown. Copious collars. Subtle caramel malt, resins, tropical fruits & grapefruit notes both in flavor & aromas. Sharp, but gentle, bitterness in the middle lingers into the finish. Oily, flavorful, creamy palate. Full body, extra-soft carbonation. Refreshing, delightful. ABV is not annoying at all.
