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.

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2007
Hazy red-brown-golden with a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of spruce, caramel and citrus - nicely hopped. The flavour has a nice solid caramel base and a full hoppyness with a nice bitterness and notes of spruce, grass and citrus. The finish is a tad out of balance, I think the resin stands too alone. But the overall impression is very nice.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 19, 2007
(Bottled) Clear, dark reddish brown with a smallish, but lasting and lacy head. Strongly aromatic-hoppy aroma with some alcohol presence. Quite complex and aromatic, exotic-fruity flavor with a bitter finish. Alcohol is completely hidden. Medium to full-bodied, slicky-sticky and quite low-carbonated palate. A very nice and enjoyable brew, reminds me quite a bit of NBE. Yeasty part is a bit ashy, and hides the complexity of the hop profile - so better leave it out.

Rating # 4400. Amber, reddish colour with a dense beige head. Malty, caramel sweet aroma with a heavy hoppy oil note. Flavor has a light malty sweetness, but is mostly piney and floral. Dry, bitter finish with a light sweet note.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2007
Bottle. Amber colour with a little nice head. Aroma of hops, maltness and little grassy. A lot of hops in the flavour, with high alpha hops, very nice hoppy, but not so bitter than you may expect,

faroeviking (10286) - FAROE ISLANDS - NOV 1, 2007
Bottle at Ølbaren. Pours a nice clear mahogny colour with a medium beige head. Aroma of fruity hops, pine some alcohol and toasted malt. The flavour is sweet and hoppy with caramel, pine, fruits and slight alcohol. Fruity and hoppy dry sweetish finish. The alcohol is well hidden in this brew with an IBU of 119. I thank the owner of Midtfyns Bryghus (Eddie) for offering this to me, ToolHead and other around us.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - OCT 30, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2007 Bottle, 50cl. The beer is dark amber and reddish. The head is white and draws fine curtains. Aroma is clearly american hops, fills the nose and gives a very good first impression. The flavor follows the aroma. It has a complex and very balanced flavor. Flavors are hops and malts, with notes of caramel. Very good mouthfeel, that makes it very drinkable. Overall a very good american double IPA.
