COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dobbel Dose or Dobbel Dram is a double IPA made with european style hops rather than US hops. This beer is also heavily dryhopped in the aging tank for the extra hop taste and aroma.
9% alc. 82 ibu and 22 ebc. Made from Maris Otter malt, wheat malt and Crystal.
Serve at 10-12C or 50-55F. Goes well with spicy food and grilled meat. American Bottle Label -- "Double Dram" is made with more of everything, including all the hops the Hand Brewery’s tiny brew-kettle can take. Feisty American hops for bittering are followed by noble Fuggles and Styrian Goldings for a spicy, flowery aroma. As tradition dictates, this is an exceptionally hardy brew, made to weather the long, hard ocean voyage to anywhere...

yespr (29683) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2008
50 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a small and shortlived head. Aroma is light citrusy and woody hoppy with a light caramel note and yeast. Smooth fruity hops flavour with a solid caramel malt base and a lasting yeasty flavour. Sweet caramel flavour into the finish with a declining bitterness. Lasting yeasty impression.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2009
Bottled. A hazy reddish beer with a bubbly orangey head. The aroma has notes of over ripe fruits, fresh citrus, malt, and a bit of alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of over ripe fruits, grapefruity hops, and other citrus fruits, as well as some notes of nuts, caramel, and wood, leading to a very bitter finish. Hm - maybe not my favorite hops?

Bottle 50 cl. Hazy amber golden with a bubbly off-white head that dissipates rather quickly. Herbal and medicinal aroma. Quite full-bodied, fruity with some yeast. Somewhat astringent finish, again hebal with something reminding me of cough syrup. Surprisingly low in bitterness. 231208

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 10, 2009
Bottled (thanks T.M.). Slightly hazy reddish amber colour with mediumsized fluffy/bubbly beige head. Aroma is dark dry fruits, some sweet malts as well as mild notes of honeyish sweetness and alcohol. Flavour is quite much the same, but also has some slight nutty notes as well as some sweetness like burnt sugar, but not exactly it.

omhper (18949) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2012
Bottled at SBWF. Cloudy deep golden, coarse head. Distinct salty hay-like grapefruit aroma. Sweet and full bodied, powerful and heavy. An onslaught of hayand salty grapefruit from the hops. Very bitter finish. Loads of power, less emphasis on details.

saxo (13455) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2008
Bottle. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are hops, flowers and malt. As a double IPA it is slightly disappointing, but still very good. I wouldn’t call it double. More like one and a half.
