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.

Rastacouere (6107) - Montreal, Quebec, - JAN 30, 2013
Gently hazy dark amber ale covered by an everlasting white cover, endurant indeed for a beer of this size. Intense aroma feels as malty as it is hoppy. While the dry-hopping has faded more than a little, there remains plenty of floral, citrusy, oily resin aromas. On parallel, estery fruits and butterscotchy diacetyl fit nicely in, hinting at upcoming sugariness worthy of any English Barley Wine. In mouth though, it is not as simple. The resinous hop character is strong enough to greatly attenuate the sweetness sensation, that’s almost a miracle considering the initial fruit candy and caramel attack. Despite being probably almost a year old, it maintains a certain freshness, hops have been preserved nicely enough and their bitterness certainly is all there, cutting through the malt’s toastiness swiftly. Round and almost suave mouthfeel. Very malty, even by Danish double IPA standards, but that may be why I enjoy them , when crossing the Atlantic, they just can’t compete with fresh IPAs that have not suffered the same travels. Might as well make them different and more complex in their own right.

probstblueribbon (2737) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 30, 2014
50 cl bottle from Bieropholie, shared, served cool in a tulip glass. Strong treacle and dark caramel malt, pine, resin and green peppercorn hops, quite dank and dark. Medium body and restrained carbonation. Like the nose, plenty of dark maltiness and resinous, dank hops; off-dry with pretty good bitterness and a resinous, peppery finish. Fairly drinkable for the abv.

Benfi (490) - DENMARK - MAR 4, 2014
Cloudy amber body with a thin off-white creamy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with melon, grapefruit, and oaky hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Its sharp hoppy taste carries citrusy, oaky, and some subtle yeasty notes. Ends with a robust, long bitter finish.

Henhald (26) - - MAR 1, 2014
Flot mørkgylden øl med fyldig hvidt hoved. Aromaen er meget mild. Smagen er derimod anderledes voldsom udspændt mellem en stærk sødme og bredspektret bitterhed, som modvirker hinanden. I eftersmagen vinder bitterheden. En øloplevelse som kan anbefales. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jookos (1520) - FINLAND - FEB 5, 2014
Tap@mitm. Amber hazy. Murky malts, old raisins.. Some grainyness. Full bitter body. Sweetness. Can’t find much to make me drink the rest of the sampler. Ok, it has good bitters to balance the abv, but flavour-wise dull, borig.
