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.

okimand (3) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2008 does not count
Stale and dark cloudy with white foam. Almost sweet, but no dryness or bitterness one might expect from a beer. Not nearly rich enough for a beer of 9.5 %.

RudeLead (8) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2008 does not count
Pours clear and reddish amber with a nice off white head with medium to slightly low head retension. Aromas of malts, some roasted, mellow round hops in the direction of warm pieapple and resin with notes of apple cellar, spices and butter (probobly from an English ale/bitter yeast strain). No volatile alchoholic aromas, despite the pretty high ABV. Quite full Burton’ish, minerally mouthfeel. The roasty malt and butter really comes through in the taste together with some caramel and warm, almost a bit cooked fruityness. Also slightly salty... The hops stay in the background in the taste exept for a slight warm, fruity attack. Medium length. Quite a special double IPA... Kinda like it though. Wee heavy meets ESB meets English IPA?

courtesy of Per Forsgren - cloudy reddish colour with an elusive pale beige foam; aroma of grapefruit and pineapple with a touch of disinfectant; fresh and rounded palate, medium-bodied with a bitter and fairly salty finish; lingering notes of melon in a quite long aftertaste

Had this on tap at the Cockney Pub, Aarhus 16-09-08 (also have been given a bottle by Kim Johannsen, cheers Kim Pours amber with some orange with a white head. Taste is quite sharp with some unripe satsuma or mandarin the bitterness clings sweetness is there and sits under the tongue and not so much of it. Really looking forward to the bottle from Kim.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - SEP 19, 2008
50cl bottle. Dark amber, lacing beige head. Strong caramel malty aroma, strong hops, plastic, little dill and butter (no potatoes though). Similar caramel flavor, liquorice, strong hops, little chalky bitterness. Medium bodied, smooth palate. Alright, average DIPA, there could more aroma hops though.

Finn (6091) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2009 Bottle 0,5l. Amber colored. A decent good-looking tanned head. Strong fruity aroma. Almost shocking strong flavor of grapefruit making it a bit unbalanced. Dry citric aftertaste with the alcohol shining through. KI=9

espenra (975) - Kurland, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2008
50cl bottle from Vinmonopolet. Best before 2009-07.18. It poured an amber colur with a big creamy head that settled down fast in the glass. It as a sweet and fruity aroma that smells of hops, grapefruit, caramel and citrus. The bitterness of the flavour takes a few seconds to kick in, but it’s not too bad. It tastes of malts, spices and alcohol. It has a lingering bitter aftertaste. Overall it’s a nice Double IPA, but the bitterness might be an aquired taste.

chimplechamp (601) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2008
pours deep mahohony with a smallish white head. that is all but gone. nose is barnyard, earth, with hoppy pine resonance. maybe a touch of blu cheese. taste is bitter, but balanced with some malty sweetness. pine, grass, tart bitter grapefrui trind. sticky mouthfeel. very good.
