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. The aroma is a smack in the face of citrus hops with a strong malt backbone. I get notes of grapefruit , pine, and some grass. Palate is a little under carbonated, but smooth considering abv. Taste really brings out the bitterness and grapefruit finishing dry. Really impressive.

RichardGretton (4220) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2012
Bottle. Vibrant cloudy orangey beer with a very strong head. The aroma is very well hopped, and the flavour is extremely bitter and hopped with major dryness. Overall a very nice heavily hopped and bitter beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tlind2 (1093) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 6, 2012
Bottle. Viscous-looking dark golden color, white head. Hoppy aroma. Strong flavor with competing hops and caramel. Notable banana flavor in the finish. Very full body, low carbonation. Interesting: not at all what I expected. The high ABV is completely hidden.

GothGargoyle (1095) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 5, 2012
Cloudy orange with a small pale head. Aroma is passionfruit, canteloupe, lemon, grapefruit, gooseberry. Creamy mouthfeel, starts sweet on the palate and transitions to a bitter citrus finish. Taste is orange marmalade, lemon pith, ruby grapefruit, canteloupe, candi sugar, touch of grass clippings in the aftertaste. Pretty well balanced and tasty.

HenryXXX (201) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 5, 2012
Pours a cloudy golden color. The nose screams mandarin oranges, grapefruit, and floral apricots. The pallet starts with a boozy, almost wood flavor. I feel this is from the high alcohol. The first flavor you taste is floral apricots followed by a sweet maltiness and finishes with long bitter grapefruit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maekchu (1942) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUN 24, 2012
Bottle. Thanks mike12da. Big citrus grapefruit and orange bomb in the nose. Dusky gold, cloudy. A real shot of hops in the initial, with a hint of malt. Way unbalanced (in a good way). It’s hard to hold in the mouth so as to get a sense of the palate; the flavors won’t sit still long enough. Fun. Over hopped. Couldn’t really drink a whole lot of this.

KyotoLefty (6131) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 23, 2012
Bottled. Deep, cloudy orange, with lace. Big citrus and tropical fruit nose. Flavor of apricot hops, citrus sour hops, bit and nasty tang, menthol, pepper, peaches. Wild stuff. Very over the top on the hops. Not very drinkable at all, but fun.

Hotspur (16) - Nara, JAPAN - JUN 23, 2012
Citrus hop aroma. Big full IIPA flavor. I couldn’t drink a pint of this; it’s well over the top. I’m glad I’m just having a snifter.

visionthing (2570) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2012
33cl bottle from Denmark. Pours hazy orange with a nice white head. Hoppy aroma with pine, fruits, citrus and malt with some spices. Slightly fruity and quite bitter. Full body and medium carbonation. Finish is bitter and hoppy with pine, fruit and citrus. Hoppy and bitter aftertaste. Quite well balanced IIPA, easy to drink and very refreshing.

Arve_Christian (2957) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2012
On bottle, thanks Visionthing. Golden hazy, ok foam. Full bodied & high complexity. Distinct hops(piney), but balanced. Medium high viscosity and good carbonation. Very enjoyable
