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.

Perhaps my favorite IPA of all time. A wonderful balance of strong hops and mellow malts combine with a hefty ABV and a gorgeous hazy almost fruity looking liquid, making this the perfect double IPA.

My favourite double indian pale ale! Huge and multicolored hop aroma, strong, but not killer bitterness, and impenetrable consistence. Without distourbing things...

Nice fruity aroma packed with well balanced hops. Clear amber with large long lasting creamy head. The taste is slightly bitter from the hops but still a lot of sweetness. Full bodied, oily texture, lively carbonation with long finish.

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.

Tasted 2010-06-08. Pours semi hazy, orange/brown with beige head. Aroma: Sweet, with pineapples, toffee, alcohol and lotsa hops. Powerful, but pleasant, bitterness in the taste. Well balanced. Nice sweetness. Explosive taste. A very good, big beer.

Christian (11027) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2007
Amber with a big off-white head. Big American hop aroma, with grapefruit, peach and pine. The bitterness comes through perfectly balanced by a malty sweetness, but without ever getting cloying. Both bite and hop flavour in the finish.

500ml bottle from monopoly outlet, Oslo. pours clear deep amber with descent yellowish head. wonderful cascade aromas, just like I would’ve brewed myself. Some alcohol, but not too much. A close to perfect beer...

aru (105) - Smørum, DENMARK - DEC 26, 2008
Umm I like this. Amber color with large light brown head. The aroma i heavy with citrus and a faint touch of nuts. The taste is dominated with cascade and chinook adding to the citrus and giving a long lasting heavy taste.

Deep amber body with small and quickly vanishing head. Then again, can’t expect a lively palate on a double IPA like this. Beautiful, deep amber color. Deep also are the hop tones my nose is getting; half grassy, half fruity, all hops. Compact. First sip gives away a small, boozy warmth at first. Then, it slowly slides into a nice cough syrup-like mix of wild strawberries, cherry, vanilla and toffee. Slightly bitter finish, but not too much. Complex and well-blended, this is a beer which calls upon retrospective on my behalf: I drank this half a year ago and had trouble finishing it; the hop bitterness was to harsh to handle. And so, I dismissed this rather well-crafted brew, only returning the the hoppy world of the IPA many months later. Now, however, after vigorous taste bud training, I seem to have overcome this obstacle to accessing the real taste. Which Midtfyn Bryghus Double IPA has a lot of. I must have come a long way, then. :-)
