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.

Smaker masse humle og har en lang bitter ettersmak. God dobbel IPA, men blir nok ingen favoritt.

Xavalias (147) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle from Omegn, Torvenhallerne, Copenhagen, DK. Pours unclear dark amber with a small fizzy, tan yellow-ish head leaving some lace. The nose has a lot of hops and some fruits, in the mouth it is grassy, with some pine, a bit of grapefruit. Solid bitterness balanced with a strong sweet malt base. Maybe a bit too sweet, as often with iipas. Smooth sticky-syrupy palate, very drinkable despite the high alcohol content (that doesn’t really show up).

"I dig the sweetness and the fruit in the nose and the flavor. It is a little too malt heavy for my liking but for a malt heavy double it’s quite nice and easy to drink. Medium bodied and slightly sticky. A bit dark for anything called a pale."

Mooie oranje kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt honing, hop, orange. Smaakt bitterzoet, fruitig, hop, honing. Goede bittere nasmaak.

RW80 (600) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 29, 2014
50 cl bottle Appearance Copper body with on top of it stable frothy head of 2 fingers. Leaving some lacing Aroma: Strong heavy resins, a huge amount of caramelised malts, very powerfull. But a bit one dimensional. . Taste: Powerfull, but it’s unbalanced. Sweet caramel and heavy resinous hops, with a strong finish with some spices and were the alcohol kicks in a boozy way even slightly burning overtime. full body, slightly below average carbonation. A lot of powerfull stuff, but i’s not fully working., specially when the alcohol is comming too much through in the wrong way.

erickok (3533) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUN 15, 2014
Copper body and stable frothy head. Heavy aroma with resin and concentrated sweet malts. Very imperial indeed. Strong taste, quite alcoholic yet not nasty at all, just powerful. However, towards the ending it all becomes too much. The alcohol burns a bit. Unbalanced. Not bad at all and great aroma with complexity, but I can’t get over the sharpness (even while I love alcohol in my beer). (50cl bottle from De Hopduvel)

vanelst (142) - AUSTRIA - JUN 4, 2014
Bitter dissapointment. Hahahaha! Anyways, aroma of sweet malts, malts, malts, pine and way too much alcohol. Oh yeah and sweet malts! Taste is sweet (no kidding) , soapy with a sharp hoppyness (grass, a bit of citrus) and a bitter spicy finish. Verdict: totally unbalanced, not refined at all and quite frankly rather poor double IPA.
