COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Overall IIPA er - som navnet angiver - en Imperial India Pale Ale, der er blevet skabt gennem tæt samarbejde mellem To Øl og vores gode venner fra Mikkeller. Udgangspunktet var at lave en hyldest til den amerikanske ølkultur, hvor øl skal smage af noget og have karakter i modsætning til det urinfarvede pseudoøl vi ofte drikker i Danmark!
Ved første tår har Overall IIPA en lettere karamelliseret malt profil, man lige får lov at dvæle ved inden ens smagsløg bliver bombarderet med en humleoplevelse af dimensioner, der giver noter af gran, citrus og grape og som kun bliver tøjlet af alkoholens sødme. Man opdager pludselig at Overall IIPA er overalt i munden og glemmer for en stund skattegælden, arbejdet og opvasken og lader skuldrene falde et par cm. Man drømmer sig væk for et øjeblik inden man opdager at glasset er blevet tomt og man bliver nødt til at have en til.
Ingredienser: Vand, Malt, Havre, Humle(Simcoe, Amarillo, Centennial) og gær.

English: English: Overall IIPA is - as the name denotes - an Imperial India Pale Ale created in close collaboration between To Øl and our good friends from Mikkeller. The mission was to create a hommage to the American beerculture, where beers needs to have flavour, taste and style, contrary to the urine-colored pseudo beer that we often drink in Denmark!
By first draught Overall IIPA has a sligthly caramelized malt profile, which gives you time to rest before your tastebuds are bombarded by a plethora of hop sensations, giving you hints of pines, citrus and grape. These are just barely harnessed by the sweetness of the alcohol. You suddenly realise that Overall IIPA is "overall" in your mouth and that drinking is living. For a short while you forget your tax-payments, work and the dishes. You relax and your shoulders drop down a couple of inches. You get carried away in a dream before you realise that your glass is empty and you need another one! Cheers!
Ingredients: Water, barley malt, flaked oats, hops (Simcoe, Amarillo and Centennial) and yeast.

TheEpeeist (3458) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2011
11.2 oz bottle. Cloudy olive orange with a big bubbled white head. Nose is musky toffee, grass, citrus and dough. Chalky, resiny, syrupy with a brisk buzz helping to cut through the heavy body. Taste is candi, grapefruit, pineapple, vanilla, pine and maybe some coconut. Huge, over the top IIPA. Might turn off some folks but OK for me.

Ughsmash (7267) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Bottled. Poured milky, cloudy golden with a creamy white head. The aroma picked up juicy pine, grapefruit, and floral notes over bready and meaty fruit notes.. warm, peppery, and spicy too.. enjoyed it! The flavor found pale and honeyed malts at the core, with lots of resiny bitterness around and throughout (black pepper and grapefruit led).. lots of tasty residual sugars and pine bitterness on the long, belly-warming finish. Medium-bodied and filling on the palate.. quite bitter overall.. really good stuff!

Sammy (9240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 15, 2011
There is no denying that this is a big beer from the get go. Some booziness joins the orange hoppy and big malt aromas. Very hazy grapefruit orange colour with bubbling soapy white head. Lots of thick lace. Taste of rich orange, big IBU hop pellets and malt. Well done for a super high IBU. Not something I can drink too often. Thick mouthfeel however palate is numbed. Mashed hop pellet aftertaste.

12oz bottle
Aroma: citrus, resin, floral, toast/bread
Taste: heavy resin, citrus, floral, bread
This is one of the best IIPAs that I have had. Super cloudy. Very easy drinking and it does not have the sweet caramel character so many IIPAs have. Very good.

Just an averageish dipa, it has a nice bitterness and is easy to put down, but lacks that extra little punch of in your face hops.

Bricks (684) - Delaware, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Weak aroma. Expected IPA ppearance. Quite a thick palate and very smooth for 10.5%. Recommended.

Marheb (2817) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 21, 2011
Rien n’est ordinaire avec cette DIPA. Totalement opaque, elle dégage un puissant parfum de citron et d’épinette, astringence massive. En la remuant, elle peinture le rebord d’alcool alors que le collet se dissipe rapidement. Au gout c’est pas moins spectaculaire, brutale amertume citronné, sapiné avec une finale aussi sèche qu’un vin. On sent bien la chaleur de l’alcool également. Assez unique avec l’avoine qui lui donne une corpulence à la hauteur de l’arrogance de ses houblons. Le malt est quelque peu surclassé, définitivement une bombe astringente musclé.
