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.

Straight orange pour from bottle. Not much head. Crazy tropical citrus taste. Thick and heavy. Enjoyable beer but 1 at a time

Davros (1859) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 9, 2013
Pours deep amber with a fading head. Masses of pine and resinous hops on the nose along with a massive hit of clean malt and caramel. Super full-on flavours, heaps of pine and resinous, spicy and earthy hops along with loads more clean malt underneath. Finishes with an aggressive but balanced bitterness. Carbonation could be a bit higher.

Smak och doft av humle, tropisk frukt och toner av citrus och grape. Trevlig beska med smak av grape och granskott.

Patrickctenchi (3401) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 7, 2013
Pours completely opaque amber with a short, yellow/tan head. Aroma of pine, gin, peach,...sugary. Taste is syrupy sweet tropical fruit, caramel, spices, pepper, with a slight alcohol bitter alongside the hops.... Very complex, highly malted, highly sweet, highly bittered, high ABV.... A little rough, but much more tasty than expected... Big...nicely balanced.

Petite bouteille partagée avec Patrick, merci pour cette découverte. Le liquide est orangé avec une mousse beige. Le nez offre des agrumes provenant de la dose massive de houblon, du caramel et de toffee. Du chocolat au lait arrive du fait que la bière ne semble pas être tout droit sortie de la ligne d’embouteillage. La bouche est mordante et juteuse. Les saveurs sont prononcées de caramel et de houblon amer. Classique comme tout.

(33 cl from kbudd19. Thanks!) Une bière qui n’est pas tellement belle à regarder. Une bière intéressante à sentir : principalement des agrumes (pamplemousse, lime, orange fraîchement pressé) et une base maltée qui penche vers le sucre caramélisé. Une bière très savoureuse : les fruits sont très juteux, acidulés et amers. Les malts restent en retrait et cette situation me plaît beaucoup. Une bière bien construite : elle est légère et bien aérée. Cet état de fait me semble très bien pour une DIPA qui tire autant en pourcentage d’alcool. Une bière qui termine sa course de belle façon : les houblons sont puissants et frais, aromatiques et amérisants. Une bière simple et pas compliquée qui ne demande qu’à être bue en bonne compagnie.

Cirrhosis (1192) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 27, 2013
What is that heavenly sent wafting from the bottle, its yummers is what it is. Glowing cloudy tan body with almost no cap floating on top, it sure look perrty. This aroma is what I live for...heavy heavy peach, lots of tropical fruit, hints of caramel malt. I must drink now!!! Sweet peachy front with big bitter finish. Caramel, pineapple, peach, leather. Wholly crap the drool I’m producing is retarded. I think I might be overselling this beer. I keep hitting vanilla........ seems odd. Tobacco and ash, all is good with life. Why is this beer so pricy, I’d buy so much more but the price per bottle stops me.

andrewturba (944) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 12, 2013
Pours a cloudy golden colour with a big fluffy dirty white head leaving nice lace up the glass. Aroma is sweet orange citrus, sweet maltiness, fruity and notes of pine. Flavour is sweet caramel, citrus, pine, some alcohol(not harsh), spiciness, bitterness is high and lingers into the aftertaste without being harsh but much more enjoyable and a dry finish. Very well balanced IIPA.

DrSilverworm (5898) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 9, 2013
11.2oz bottle, from The Party Source. Cap reads "7641112". Hazy orange / gold color. Good thin off-white head, with great retention, leaves great lace. Looks good. Smooth texture. Bigger body. Lighter, smooth carbonation. Dry, but not super-dry like a lot of the Mikkeller IPAs I’ve been drinking lately. Just normal-dry. Actually makes it more drinkable. Spicy hop, some grapefruit, some pine. Kind of an alcoholic bite in the finish. Actually solid!
