mkel07 (5314) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 7, 2012
330ml bottle from Archive. Pours a golden orange colour with a big rocky head of foam. Insane hop aroma fills the nose with sweet joy. Flavour is as good as the aroma with a long lingering aftertaste. A pleasure to drink.

islay (2331) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 30, 2012
11.2 oz. bottle, consumed on 11-29-12. Labeled as Mikkeller Hop Burn Imperial Pale Ale. Fresh, dry, spicy, floral, chalky aroma features muffin, fresh-baked bread, caramel, pine, and apricot scents. I also can smell the alcohol. Complex and varied smell. Pours an orange-ish light copper. Hazy and effervescent with suspended, light-colored particulate. Moderate to large amount of thick, taupe head. Produces nice lacing. Dry, bready, sharp, sweet, and flavorful taste features peach, peach juice, biscuit, strawberry, and sugar cookie elements. Verges on excessive sweetness, but it doesnt go too far over the line. Substantial, hearty, thick, silky, and frothy in the palate. Darn good all around. Seems very substantial as well as professionally and skillfully made. One cant ask for much more from a beer in this style. 8/4/8/4/17=>4.1

Bottle. Clear deep golden with a fluffy white head. Orange lemon caramel and cereal grain aroma and taste with a floral finish and a big hop resin bitterness.

lamas (1589) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 24, 2012
11.2 oz. bottle. I cant make out the date on the cap. A hazy rust pour with a thick and creamy antique white head that leaves rings of lace behind. A nicely balanced aroma that features plenty of caramel, a nutty toffee quality, wet cardboard, toasted rye bread, musty funk, slight herbal notes, light grapefruits, and some hints of pine. Goes down medium to full-bodied and moderately creamy. Rich. Caramel and a roasty maltiness upfront taste-wise. Almost doughy with some touches of rye. Some bittering grapefruits at the tail end. Spicy here and there. Not much alcohol warmth despite the 10% ABV. This seems to have aged a bit - Id be curious to see what a fresh bottle tastes like.

slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - NOV 16, 2012
11.2 bottle that was bought, dropped, cooled & drank w/ in an hour, so... cloudy w/ lots of floating yeast, pale, w/ minimal white head. Smells like sweet wet hops. Taste almost medicinal. Its bitter, but I poured too much yeast, so its muddled. Alcohol is muted. Pricey.

sonnycheeba (5320) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with thick, frothy off-wheat head; good retention and lacing. Aroma is cookie and caramel malt, floral hops, pine, honey, vanilla, and candy sugar. Flavor is balanced sweet malt and vibrant hops (medium hops) with some light fruit esters and vanilla; dry, hoppy finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

Bottle. Pours clear hazy orange with a medium, frothy white head, medium-short retention with light to good lacing. Aroma is heavy pine, resin, and floral hops, pear and apple hops with biscuit malt and light alcohol notes. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness, light sweet malt and fruity esters with a dry finish. Medium-full body and moderate carbonation.

epiphyte707 (67) - eureka, California, USA - NOV 13, 2012
On tap, local beer bar eureka, CA. Beautiful dark golden almost green color, insane hoppy aroma of earth, ganja, fruity, and semi sweet tones. Sublimely hoppy juice flavor. Great lingering bitter aftertaste

Chico_Swanson (9) - Santa Barbara, California, USA - NOV 7, 2012 does not count
Poured from 11.2 oz botella into my favorite glass. Very close to that perfect IIPA honeycomb color. Nose is full of the earthier hop characters and boozey caramel. Taste is about the same. Good amounts of hop but mostly stinky resinous pine (none of the bright citrus that us Westcoasters love) banging through roasty caramel sweetness w/ a bit of heat. Good strong ale but too malty/sweet for my Dub ipa expectations.

jazz88 (2674) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy and murky yellow orange color with a laced white head. A sweet, herbal and resin hop aroma. A full bodied hop fueled caramel flavor with a strong bitter finish with lingering sweetness.
