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 shared by Marcus. Pours hazy peach with a transient creamy off-white head. Aroma is almost slightly old cat pee- but lets call it over-heated citrus. Flavor is floral, cooked light stone fruit, and citrus. It is nicely bitter and extremely pleasing.

marcus (7562) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 20, 2011
Bottle from Healthy Spirits. Pours cloudy blonde with a modest off-white head and a funky fruit aroma. There is a slightlly sour caramel malt flavor with a lot of fruitiness and a bitter finish. A very nice version of DIPA.

Bottle picked up at StateLine.... Poured into a snifter... cloudy orange color. Taste good! Kind of a fruity DIPA.... Citrus,mango, pineapple, light pine notes, grass, musty. On the sweet side. Lots of stuff going on here. Very enjoyable. Texture is on the heavier/thicker side. Alcohol isnt noticable but it warmed me up quickly. Overall: Overall is a good DIPA from my favorite euro brewery! (I am biased... love mikkeller brews!) Another thanks to matt from stateline for picking this out!

The pour is a murky, orangey, honey color with an off-white, creamy, fluffy, full head which is mostly lasting and leaves soapy lace. The nose is very nice with loads of citrus and other fruit (passion fruit, ruby red grapefruit, peach), rustic, floral, and some resins. The flavor is similar peach, passion fruit, tangerine, more rustic, still floral, slight spice, slight undertones of dry caramel, and a nearly high bitterness. The palate is nearly full, nearly lively, velvety, and oily. The beer finishes very long with a bit of spicy warmth, drying slightly, and notes of resin, floral, dry caramel, and tangerine. Not sure why this has so many low ratings? The hopping was aggressive but never over-the-top or overdone. The citrus and fruit was incredible, and the malts were subtle but complemented the hop flavors well. The warmth seemed misplaced at first but actually added another complementary aspect with the spicy nature. Pretty much what I have come to expect from Mikkeller.

dmac (4682) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUN 11, 2011
11.2 oz bottle from EZ. Poured an ugly milky hazy straw body underneath a large foamy off white head. Aroma started off with a burst of yellow grapefruit and some underlying caramel, after awhile tropical fruits and pineapple began to emerge along with toffee, bread and some alcohol. Body is fuller and dry with a touch of warning from the alcohol and soft carbonation. Flavor of citrus rind, dry hops, cereal grains, alcohol and some dried out caramel and toffee. Pretty solid but not worth the big price tag that Mikkeller beers get.

Pours a nice hazy orange. Lots of orange, pineapple, grapefruit. Strong malt backbone. Malt is kind of sticky but the flavor is all hops. Tons of tropical fruit, pineapple, candy, mango. Astringent bitterness turns right into a blast of tropical fruit flavor. This beer has some serious hop notes going on. I can only imagine what it would have tasted like had it been completely fresh.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 30, 2011
11.2oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange with a smallish white head that sticks stubbornly to the glass and leaves spotty lacing. The aroma is very sticky sweet with pithy grapefruit and pineapple dominating the nose. Mandarin oranges and some sweet caramel malts. Massive lemon and pineapple sweetness up front, with oranges and grapefruit as well. Just a big sweet fruit cocktail flavor. Sweet sugary malts underneath but the finish is juicy as hell. The mouthfeel is sticky sweet with soft carbonation and bitter with citrus hops, though it’s more sweet than bitter. In case you haven’t noticed from my review, this is a seriously citrus-heavy DIPA that’s not exactly drinkable but it’s full of bold flavors and I kinda dig it.

mixmasterob (970) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 16, 2011
Hazy deep orange pour with a two finger fluffy white head. Stuck around and left lace all over the glass. Aroma was packed with big piney, fruity hops. Almost feel the hop oils. Flavors were just as piney, some fruit and just a tinge of malty sweetness. Quite bizarre given the booze in this brew. I didn’t taste or smell any. Mouthfeel was medium to full, carbonation lax. Nice lingering bitterness on this one, lasted but nothing overly bitter here. Very nice. Impressive double.

Orange gold and cloudy with a thick creamy head. Pine, floral hops and caramel in the aroma. Sweet, bitter taste. Soft carbonation and long bitter finish. Superb IPA.
