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.

Bottle. Muddy orange pour with small white head. Aroma is orange, bread. Taste is caramel, sweet malts. Lighter bodied and bitter finish. I think this may be an old bottle. No points off to the beer for that...I’m sure this is splendid when fresh.

curepute (139) - New York, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Hazy darkish orange, looks great. Nose of dank hops and fermented dark fruits. Loads of flavors going on here, tobacco, orange, grapefruit, toffee, some sort of sugared candy(can’t pinpoint it), caramel malts. Bitter finish that softens to reveal wood and earth flavors. Big big hoppy flavors, your certainly not going to have a kolsch after this.

(330ml bottle) Pours a lightly hazy yellow body with a moderate white head. Aroma of herbs, grass, manure, grapefruit, and caramel. Flavor of grass, herbaceous, citrus, sugary, stone fruit, and a noticeable alcohol bite and sticky finish.

Might not be entirely fair to rate this one as-is, since it’s clearly not in optimum condition, but I am not going to be headed to Copenhagen or to Belgium anytime soon, plus they charged me $6.99 for a 12oz. so here goes. The head is not much; it has a slushy look that leaves spots of residue on the sides. It’s not so much lacing as it is the kind of spots you get after you take a glass out of the dishwasher. Aroma is definite chlorine, kind of reminiscent of what you get from BrewDog after it’s been on the shelves for a bit. You can tell it was probably a highly-hopped piece of work, but it’s softened up considerably. What there IS is a grainy husk, a little sweet, but akin to a barleywine. It does have a sting of resinous, dank hop after it warms up a tad. The flavor is ... well, it’s not lightstruck, but it’s off. The malts, again, are closer to a barleywine than an IPA: they are more sugary and the alcohol is not masked even a little bit. It’s metallic, with a hint of lacquer/nail polish. (That could just be the booze.) The hop mostly lingers in the aftertaste. It’s not bad at all, just not that distinctive. The palate is thick and chunky, but with an oily exterior. It works mostly. This baby is a slow sipper, and I doubt I’m throwing the curve off too much here. I’m sure off the shelves in Denmark it’s a hell of a beer, but you might expect some unexpected changes to the flavors stateside.

maneliquor (3009) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours hazy, dark orange with a small, firm yellow head with good retention. Quite sinisterly for an IPA. Nose shows tones of dried fruits - apricot, banana, apple. Some dampened wood and toffee comes through as a big malt back bone. Touch of pine there too. Taste is very resinous and sticky like caramelised dates and fig, some huge dried apricot and tangy citrus notes with pine and a big sweet caramel back bone. A touch too sweet with a bit of heat from the alcohol. Done well but not as classy as some other To Ol beers I’ve had. Although this bottle is a touch older than most of them

This one is cloudy orange in color with an off-white head. The aroma is citrus and hops. Taste is citrusy hops with a bitter finish. It flows across the palate with strong carbonation. Overall a good beer that I am enjoying.

JanLaursen (3025) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2013
Bottle, 33 cl. Hazy golden amber with a nice, frothty white head, good retention and lace. High hoppy aroma. Peach and grapefruit. Flavor is light malty sweet caramel, toasted with a hight dose of fruity hops and a massive bitterness in the finish. Drinkabillity is high albeit the ABV.

Glouglouburp (5956) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 14, 2013
In short: A brutal Double IPA abrasive in all fronts. Very low drinkability.
How: Bottle 330ml, consumed soon after purchase, however fresh a Danish Double IPA can be in a Vermont store.
The look: Muddy orange-amber body topped by a small off-white head.
In long: Nose has lots of ripe fruits (apricots, passion fruits, gooseberries), moldy bread, dank basement, this is far from a bright and vibrant aroma. Taste is very boozy upfront (10.5% very apparent), a lot of toasted crunchy sugary sweetness, sweet mangos, dried and candied fruits, banana peels, bitter orange peels, pine tree, hops resin. Abrasive harsh bitterness. My god this was a brutal beer, hard to find anything good to say about an excessively aggressive beer like this one. Unfortunately it is becoming more and more apparent that the goal is now to make intensely tasty beer, but I prefer a discreet blandly drinkable mild ale over an brutal slap in the mouth like this beer. Everything I don’t like about a Double IPA. Overall IIPA is overall a IIPA that is overall too brutal so I will not be all over Overall because overall Overall IIPA is not a IIPA that is overall good even if Overall gets overall good ratings I don’t think Overall is good overall.
