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.

Maris (1201) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUL 14, 2011
From a 330ml bottle on 14/7/2011. Pours a cloudy dark orange with a small head which dissipates quickly. Has a strong aroma of caramel malt, musk and fruity hops. This one tastes big, just as you’d expect for something that’s 10.5%. It begins with a big caramel sweetness, along with pronounced orange and peach flavours. The hops are massive, with a dry, grapefruity bitterness that lingers in the mouth. The sweet/bitter contrast is quite extreme here. The alcohol present makes it more of a sipper than a quaffer. Yet a another fine crazy brew from Mikkeller.

drpimento (2533) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 12, 2011
Whoaaa! What a beer! I let it warm up a bit out of the fridge. It poured with a huge, foamy, frothy, sudsy, cream colored head that mostly settled down and lots of clingy lace. Color is a cloudy medium amber with plenty of bubble trails. Aroma is a heady whiff of very fresh poetent hops, malt, fruits, caramel, and a faint fleeting hint of solvent. Flavor is much the same. Great body and carbonation. Finish is very long and like flavor. Too rich and strong (although no sense of alcohol) to be a session.

SpringsLicker (3266) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 8, 2011
Orange hazy pour with a small. creamy, white head. Some lacing. Fresh citrus hop aroma with lots of juicy malt supporting the hops. Some pine resin as well. The taste goes over your tongue with the juicy malt sweetness going first with the hop bitterness chasing right on the heels of the sweetness. All stays pretty much in balance however.

Bottle @ Dan’s house. Slightly hazy, yellow orange appearance with an off white head. Huge grapefruit, pineapple hoppy nose. Pretty bitter, floral, grapefruity citrusy hoppy flavor with some booze. Bitter, slightly boozy, grapefruity finish.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 30, 2011
Bottle (picked up in Australia but drunk in NZ). So much grapefruit and toffee, pine and citrus, crisp but creamy. A damn fine example of a IIPA, I’m delighting in the lingering dryness.

thornecb (4926) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 28, 2011
Pours hazy gold into a tulip. Off-white head with little retention recedes to mottle surface. Earthy resin and pear aromas. Sweet caramel and oats upfront turning to hot resin in the dry, lasting finish.

Bottle at Churchkey. Murky golden color, white edge head. Aroma of citrus > pine. Taste is grapefruit and pine resins. Incredible body. Nice one.

330. ml. bottle. Pours a medium, ivory head, with some lacing, over a hazy light amber (SRM 7) body....nose is medium pine, light citrus, toffee/caramel....taste is sweet toffee/caramel to start, then pine, citrus bitterness, with a touch of pineapple arrive to partially balance the sweetness, finishing with a light licorice tone, the bitterness lingers....mouth feel is thick, carbonation low. This is a pretty typical IIPA. It is nicely balanced, has all the aromas and flavors one expects. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7
