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.

ACD (652) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 28, 2012
33cl bottle. Pours hazy orange with thin white head; decent amount of lacing. Aroma is caramel, orange, grapefruit, slight resinous pine - big hop hit, but not quite as zingy and in-your-face as I’d like. Note of booze on the nose too. Taste is much the same with a somewhat sticky caramel malt hit balancing out the aggressive orange/grapefruit/citric hopping; plenty of sweet tangerine stuff going on, before a brief hit of pine, and then a lengthier hit of booze - pretty warming as it goes down. Lingering mouthcoating resiny bitterness (yep, it is an "overall" coating!). I do love a good powerful IIPA, but the booze notes and the heavy sweetness in this are a bit distracting from what it should be about - hops hops and more hops. Still a pretty exciting beer though, enjoyed it.

Very nice Mikkeller. Nice carbonated. Lots of hopp. Nicely balanced beer. Yes hopfully Mikkeller will brew more of this kind.

toffeeslot (118) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 22, 2012
Huge aroma of hops and caramel. Pours a deep toffee amber with off white foam head. Taste is what a IIPA should be - malt, toffee, caramel, dark fruits....but then giving way to floral, zest hop tastes. Alcohol taste of course. Epic beer

garth_86 (225) - EDMONTON, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 21, 2012
Pours a very cloudy orange. Aroma is a sweetness, grapefruit, and some pine. Taste is similar. Starts with a nice malt then the massive amount of hops.

lusikka (6343) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 15, 2012
330 ml bottle. Rated on 14.10.2012.
Pours a hazy murky orange colour with a small head. Aroma of piney hops, caramel and exotic fruitiness. Flavour of strong caramel malts, exotic fruits such as kiwi and floral piney hops. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and high carbonation. Great bitterness paired with the exotic fruitiness, but overall (sic) this is a bit too rough.

haukur (1309) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - OCT 13, 2012
lost my notes on this one. Floral and spicy aroma, obvious Simcoe. Sticky palate with a bitter finish.

steview (1021) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Very smooth, resiny and juicy. Very good balance for my tastes. Sweet with notes of caramel and orange. Funk and cheese here and there especially in the aroma. Floral as well as with a twist of pepper, but overall sweet yet hoppy. Very tasty and interesting. I’ll have another.

pintbypint (2646) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 21, 2012
300ml borwn bottle. Dark gold pour, hazy. Creamy white cap, a few fingers thick. Some good clingy lines of lacing in the glass. Sweet nose, big malt, tropical fruitiness. Taste, sweet malts, fruity hops with notes of tropical fruit and grape. Ends with grapefruit and tangerines. Alcohol is not well hidden. Medium bitter. Big thick body, mild carbonation. Pretty heavy handed and sweet, yet enough hoppy enough to keep me drinking it.

Slightly sour giving an awesome balance to the taste. Great aroma. A very good example for an IIPA!

reebtogi (4239) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 14, 2012
330ml bottle pours a cloudy golden orange color with a 3 finger white head that leaves some really nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and light toasted cereal grains with a nice blend of citrus and hints of alcohol. Taste is light toasted and bold caramel malty sweetness with a pleasant citrus and grassy hop bitterness. Medium to heavily bodied with some decent carbonation. A little malt forward for the style, but still a very enjoyable brew. Has a barley wine flavour to it.
