COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Overall IIPA med mælkesyrebakterier.
Dette er et eksperiment, der nærmest har taget over hånd. Ov-ral- er To Øl/Mikkeller collab øllen, Overall IIPA, bare i en wild yeast version. Resultatet er en hyper kompleks øl med et ordentligt skud humle, som bliver balanceret af gærens syrlige og funky noter. I sandhed en ener.

English: This beer is one of a kind. It is our good "old" To Øl/Mikkeller collab - Overall IIPA - fermented with wild yeast. The result is a dry hop bomb that has been balanced by the tart and funky wild yeast notes.
When we added the wild yeast the fermentation went out of control and made a 100% attenuation - leaving no left over sugar in the beer.

12 ounce bottle
This would have been excellent even if it had not been a freebie. Lately I have been staying away from Mikkeller beers only because I have such a backlog of ones to rate already. However the labeling and description made this one too impossible to pass up. If you’re inclined to spend a little more on an imperial IPA buy a fresh bottle.

Aroma / Appearance - A warm bronze base shimmers with life as the sticky legs crawl down the sides. Equal parts malt and hop it smells of sticky pine sap. Orange glaze spread over a fresh piece of cheesecake brightens the air like recently polished hardwood floors.

Flavor / Palate - Orange polish, cheesecake, and a delayed release of bitterness opens with a bang. It doesn’t have the same urgency of a beer like Dreadnaught but maybe that has to do with the trip over the ocean. This might have been a better crisper when more fresh; by the time I got to sample the bottle it was more like a new barleywine. Whatever it is the result is a top notch dessert beer.

Bottle. Pour is cloudy orange with particulates floating and creamy white head. Aroma is intense orange, fruity, slight sour. Taste is sweet malt sour orange, bigger dried fruit, more barleywine than iipa, ends on a woody dry note. I think this bottle had some age as there is no freshness as some have noted.

Palme (3237) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2013
0.33l bottle. This is a crystal clear one, orange-ish in color and it has a nice big lasting head. Fantastic fruity aroma that literally fills the room. Some berries and sourned lime/citrus fruits, sweet caramel and it just smells fresh. The taste is also really something. Boozy, acidic/sour bitter hoppy, fruity, currants and a good amount of alcohol. It’s about average on the carbonation and slick to oily in the mouth. Resinous hops, almost bubblegum candy with a near apply-banana sweetness balanced out with a soft lime- or grapefruit-acidity. Light dry and tart finish. A creation. Tasty! 11.08.2012

nuplastikk (4299) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Tap at Brasserie V. Unfiltered orange-brown. Big steady beige head. Pronounced funky dry sour aroma. Same thing for the taste. In some ways the background is a big Barleywine, but the wild yeasts really took hold. Sort of like a Double Orval. There are some odd infected tones under the desired sour qualities at times. Brutal, not really that subtle or perfected. It isn’t so thick, but has a rich oily burnt malt/hop taste in the background. Dry passionfruit tones, not so citric. Barky, woody almost. Dried out Brett Barleywine. Interesting. Unruly, unrefined, truly wild.

Valgreen (640) - DENMARK - AUG 15, 2013
Tap @ fairbar, 15 / 6 2013. Cloudy dark orange, small white head, not much lacing. Aroma, delicious hoppyness of citrus, pine, grapefruit, with a very funky wild yeast mix, like passion fruit, you do sense some malt. Taste, sweet malty, hoppy, fruity, passion fruit, resin, . The wild yeast is some what hard to catch, would be perfect for a comparison with the normal. Ends with slightly dry, fruity, passion fruit hoppy note.
