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...

Draft @ ACBF 2012: light orange amber with a white head, smell is citrus hops, oranges, nectar, very fruity overall, taste is very fruity, nectar, citrus, apricot & peachy hops, hint of malts & yeast, caramel, it is definitely hoppy & bitter but on the very fruity & wonderfully mellow side of the spectrum, medium, hop filled body, my kind of DIPA & probably the IPA/DIPA of ACBF for me, including that “other” popular one

A citrus and tropical fruit explosion. Tempered with a nice malty base. Pungent and tart with a hint of sourness.

Bottle. Tasted at the brewery. A wonderful bottling of my favourite beerstyle. I think they even put hops in the mash for this one. Very grapefruity and hoppy, without beeing too much. Love the european hopstyle

oh yes haand, oh yes. Definitely hits my top 5 IPA’s. maybe even top 3. yes, top 3. might be the second. Aroma is full of herbs and fruit; banana, slight citrus, complex mixtures with that IPA bitterness. appearance: hazy, very thick hazy liquid, sahti, orange/brown/yellow/amber colour, very balanced, pouring takes 6min; standard haand long pouring. at first, there is a thick bubbly foam, that settles at the end and becomes a thin solid foam at the edges of the beer. looks very balanced and tempting. Taste: bitter, hoppy, IPA’ish with a lot of fruit and herbs. it’s just so full and balanced. palate: settles really nicely in your mouth with the flavours, very balanced, a bit of carbonation, works well with the beer. Really settles where it should and gives every taste a chance to be found. the best haand bryggeriet so far, and have a tasted many of them.. a late summer evening beer, sitting on the porch, a little bit of rain, feeling the arrival of autumn and talking deep shit. this is what it reminds me of. a deep IPA with a lot of character and flavours. You keep doing that great work there @ Haand.

On tap at Biero. Nice malty ale, not much in the hops. Aromas of caramel, cherries, and strawberries, and strawberries. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and long length. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

Batch 528, brew 12.10.12. I live the label, fingerprints on hops plants. Pours a slight off head, which hasn't dissipated at all. Huge aromas like suggested thanks to dry hopping. Lemon zest, mandarin, floral. On first taste I'm getting smokey flavours, and fruity, slightly dry mouth after and the bitters arent coming through. I'll let it sit and warm then I'm sure they will. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

500ml bottle. Hops, hops and hops. Packed full of punchy hop aromas that penetrate deep into the nose. Big thick creamy head above a hazy golden amber brew. Like everything else about this beer the flavour is packed with strong fruity hop flavours. Weighty in the glass and not for the faint hearted.

Grzesiek79 (3109) - Radom, POLAND - MAY 17, 2014
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.

Wow this is a good IPA. I may prefer this to Mikkellers Stateside? Could be fun to have them side by side. It is a bit hazy, but beautiful orangelike colour. Nose is good IPA, just as it is supposed to be. Very very creamy. More creamy than Stateside. One of my favorit beers.
