COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Dobbelt IPA er en amerikansk inspireret, mørk ravfarvet øl med et flot lyst skum. Bryggeren har valgt at tørhumle denne IPA under gæringsprocessen, så den har fået en stærk og kompleks humleprofil af Cascade, Chinook og Centennial humle. IPAen har en meget fyldig krop, som er både blød og kraftig i smagen med en meget bitter eftersmag - et resultat som skal opleves. Kan drikkes til krydret mad, men står bedst alene.

English: The Double IPA is an American inspired, dark amber beer with a beautiful light coloured head. The brewer has chosen to dry hop this IPA which adds to the full and complex hop profile of Cascade, Chinook and Centennial. The IPA has a very full body, with a soft yet strong flavour and a very bitter finish - the result has to be experienced. Goes with spicy dishes, but is best enjoyed on its own.

larsga (6206) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 13, 2008
Big beige head. Hazy red-amber body. Intense citric tropical fruit aroma with notes of mango and malts. Dry malty citric tropical fruit taste with light catty notes. Some sweetness, too. Slight alcohol heat. Mouthfeel has some softness to it, before the hop bite sets in. A bit of chalk, too. Taste burns pleasurably in the mouth. Bitter roasty aftertaste with some alcohol and oranges. Very long aftertaste. Lovely, a powerful beer to sip. (0.5l, Vinmonopolet.)

Defreni (2602) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2008
Flaske. Ikke så humlet som mere amerikanske udgaver af DIPA, men yderst drikbar. Svag humle i duften, og smagen er også en smule humlet, bitterheden er ikke så udpræget, men det gør øllen meget drikbar i forhold til procenterne. Fin øl, men ikke mere.

RBESG08 grand tasting
Wrote it as Amager accidentally, but I’m positive that it’s actually this. Poured a hazy red body with a lasting white head. Strong aroma hops in the nose. Sweet maltiness on top of the big hopiness. A nice beer. Actually wrote a good deal more but it’s not all that legible. Oops

oh6gdx (20308) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 10, 2008
Bottled. Amber colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is hops, grass, fruits with some mild nectary and dry wooden notes. Flavour is very much the same in a good balance. Easy to drink and hides the alcohol totally.

Mogwai (227) - Askeby, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2008
Bottle. Hazy golden colour with good tan head. Aroma is hops, malt, fruit. Flavor is very good of hops, and it has a smooth mouthfeel. I like it.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2008
Bottle at the RBESG08 Grand tasting. Alround rating: Very malty iipa, caramalt, grassy citrus character and peppery alc. I was really looking forward to this but somewhat let down by its raw maltyness.

Gr0ve (2134) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2008
500 ml bottle. Copper coloured with some floaties, but otherwise clear. Medium-sized white fine-laced head that clings to the glass. Rich bready malt aroma with some notes of red berries. Floral hop aroma, but not that outstanding aroma. Strong hop bitterness that almost turns into resin juice. Salty. This balances nicely with the otherwise rich, but cloying, malty flavours. Unbalanced and not very successful brew. Rich, yes, but could be much better.

ekstedt (5433) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2009 Sampled at the RBESG08 grand tasting. Hazy mahogny with medium tan head. Fruity and caramelly, with pine and citrus hops. Medium bodied and smooth. Well balanced with a bitter finish. Rerate, bottle (50 cl) from Systembolaget. Felt boring this time around, with weak hops aroma. Well balanced and quite ok though.

omhper (19365) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2008
Bottled at RBESG. Hazy nut brown, small head. Grapefruity nose. Sweet and full flavoured. Bold caramelly malt dipped in hop sauce with graepfruit and salmiak. Medium to full bodied. Bitter salty licorice finish. Interesting in that I’ve never tasted as much salmiak in an IPA.
