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.

sunevdj (3271) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2011
Pours a slightly hazy amber with a tiny diminishing head. Sweet and hoppy. Fresh hops profile. Hints of alcohol. Full bodied with a slightly oily mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. Long, bitter and hoppy finish.

NosirIwont (2008) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2011
Bottle. Pours a murky orange with an off-white head. Crisp, sweet and tart citrus and pine hop aroma. Sweet, fruity and hoppy flavour wit hmetallic overtones. A bit tart. Quite tart and bitter finish. I like bitterness, but this one is sort of ’off’. And the mix with the tartness isn’t doing wonders either for some reason. Can’t say exactly what it is, but something here isn’t working for me. Otherwise an okay beer. 29.01.11.

brnandersen (2029) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 27, 2011
0,33 l. bottle from Ølbutikken, Cph. Clear, orange color. Hints of toast (?), Aroma is grasses and citrus, not suprising for a hoppy beer. The high abv. is not present in aroma and taste. Nice! This hoppy beer has a medium bitterness, and a long lasting aftertaste/finish. Some lacing, soft carbonation. Dispite the high abv. and the very present hoppyness, this one is a very drinkable beer. I really enjoyed this one: Looking forward to more from To Øl.

Adenila (1557) - DENMARK - JAN 7, 2011
Nice golden color with a medium white foaming head leaving lacings. Floral hop aroma, with loads of grape and a little mandarine. Quite alchochol flavor with both bitter hop and bitter alchohol notes. Abit too much alchohol for my liking but great aroma!

Palme (3591) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 29, 2010
Tap @ Mikkeller Bar. Pours a hazy amber bronze/orange with a thin creamy foam. Nose is hoppy-as-hell, some pines and roasted malts. In mouth: Fully bodied with lively carbonation. Extremely bitter with a warming alcohol ending. Some fade liquorish sensations in the background along with some lemon zest. Have to admit that this is one of the best IIPA I’ve ever tasted.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2010
Draft. A slightly hazy amber beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma has notes of cats piss, lemon, and grapefruit - very fresh. The flavor is sweet malty, but then the hops hits with notes of grass and peaches, leading to a very bitter and quite alcoholic finish. The alcohol warms the mouth.

KimJohansen (10350) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2010
Cloudy amber with a medium off white head. Hoppy flavor with grapefruit, pine and malty notes. Loads of hops in the typical sweet flavor for this style. Picked up grapefruits, pine and loads of sweet malt. Fiinished cloying sweet and very bitter.

Skinnyviking (7235) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 10, 2010
Draught. Low fluffy white and quickly disappearing head. Hazy yellow body. Hoppy mild fruit citrus aroma. Pretty hoppy and yet mild fruity flavor of pine with a spicy touch. Low carbonation. Long bitter aftertaste.
