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...

Lovley floral, hoppy smell. Perfect like a hophead like me :) looks tempting, hazy golden honey with a frothy cream white head. Taste is like the smell, delicious hops, pleasant bitterness and a malty aftertaste. This beer is like a rare breed of dog; exciting, loyal and always delivers :) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"Piney and malty sweet aroma and flavor...more so than I prefer but not bad. Dark and cloudy for the style. I still prefer the west coast or other hop bombs to this. Double IPas are for hop fiends after all, but his is not a bad brew."

MunBro (354) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 26, 2014
Aroma of those sweet, sweet Norwegian hops. Very nice golden pour with a 2 finger white head, nice lacing. Very nice European IPA, has a nice sweet hop flavor with some malts and ABV burn backing it up.

Cloudy dark copper/amber with a boozy head. Aromas of slight fruity apples, toffee, caramel, zesty flowers. Flavors of floral hops, toffee, caramel and slight alcohol in the nose. More malty than hopppy. Medium to high sweetness. This may have sat on the shelf for too long. Medium bitterness.

Bottle at home. Medium high fluffy lasting white head. hazy orange body. Sweet apple peach mango aroma. Relatively hoppy and yet sweet fruity flavor with a hint of alcohol. Low carbonation. Long dry finish.

Barwa: głęboka złocista barwa, lekko zamglona. Piana biała, drobno pęcherzykowa, obfita, utrzymująca się i ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Aromat: wyraźnie alkoholowy, nieco słodowy (zbożowy) oraz chmielowy (trawiasty, ziołowy, kwiatowy, nieco owocowy, cytrusowy, leśny). Smak: pełny, słodowy, słodki, wręcz gęsty. Następnie chmielowa kontra, ale goryczka najwyżej średnia. Posmaki cytrusów i owoców tropikalnych z lekko alkoholową końcówką. Jeszcze jedno piwo z HaandBryggeriet, tym razem imperialne IPA. Barwa i piana są bez zarzutu. Aromat niestety zdominowany przez alkohol, który przykrywa w dużej mierze nuty słodowe i chmielowe. A szkoda, bo dzieje się tam sporo, ale przebicie się przez nuty wręcz spirytusowe jest trudne i niezbyt przyjemne. Odłączając powonienie nie jest już tak źle, ale chyba nie o to chodzi, żeby pić piwo bez aromatu.

500ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. Big frothy tan head. Clear light amber body. Aroma of malt, smoked wood and vanilla. The hops are not too present on the nose. Light bitterness which is felt mostly on the palate. Slightly sweet. Boozy aftertaste.

Bardzo dobre tresciwe slodowosci mnostwo, piana niestety srednia. Aromat chmielno trawiasty. Kolor przybrudzonej szarej pomaranczy. W smaku tresciwe na przemian slodowe i chmielne, goryczkowe i koncowka bardzo gozkawo-wytrawna. Podczas picia cehowalo to piwo jakby skoszona i zasuszona trawa, takie mialem odczucie podczas przelykania tego piwa. Bardzo ciekawe i intrygujace. Odmiennie inne dla mnie piwo do innych piw w tym stylu.
