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 from Capone’s. Pours turbid orangy copper with 2-finger frothy and copious lacy white head. Not off-white, but very white. Nose is great; a huge pineapple, grapefruit, tangerine, black pepper medley that knocks your olfactory receptors into next week with their awesome IBU and hopcitrus bill. Tastes rich, complex, with a huge caramel malt load, a ton of resiny hop flavors, tangerine, pineapple, black pepper, and a crisp satisfying finish. Say hello to one of the world’s best IPAs, and get ya some, even if you have to pay Danish shipping rates.

drpimento (2098) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 12, 2011
Whoaaa! What a beer! I let it warm up a bit out of the fridge. It poured with a huge, foamy, frothy, sudsy, cream colored head that mostly settled down and lots of clingy lace. Color is a cloudy medium amber with plenty of bubble trails. Aroma is a heady whiff of very fresh poetent hops, malt, fruits, caramel, and a faint fleeting hint of solvent. Flavor is much the same. Great body and carbonation. Finish is very long and like flavor. Too rich and strong (although no sense of alcohol) to be a session.

Cybercat (2986) - Georgia, USA - OCT 5, 2011
Rich aroma is strongly hoppy with a firm citrus undertone that is mainly orange with a note of grapefruit. It pours a hazy dark honey-amber with a fairly thick off-white head. Strong flavor is, no surprise, mainly hoppy yet minimally bitter and has a firm note of sweet citrus plus a sour touch - very tasty. Rough texture is quite fizzy and leaves a hoppy, citrus tingle behind. A must if you like good IPAs!

stefannilssons (1306) - SWEDEN - JAN 2, 2012
Det här var en ytterst behaglig ölupplevelse och smaken, som är väldigt behaglig, präglas främst av blommighet och citrus. Beskan beter sig lite underligt, den börjar lite mjukt och försiktigt men ökar i kraft efterhand och mot slutet blir den skarp och hård. Slutsats: en ypperlig öl.

Maria (9963) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2011
It’s unclear, dark orange with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of oranges and other citrus, peach – lots of peach. The flavour is sweet and has lots of fruity notes, primarily a lot of peach, but also oranges and other citrus, pineapple, papaya and a light bitterness – it’s a really fantastic, tasteful, aromatic and harmonic DIPA!!

Marheb (1743) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 21, 2011
Rien n’est ordinaire avec cette DIPA. Totalement opaque, elle dégage un puissant parfum de citron et d’épinette, astringence massive. En la remuant, elle peinture le rebord d’alcool alors que le collet se dissipe rapidement. Au gout c’est pas moins spectaculaire, brutale amertume citronné, sapiné avec une finale aussi sèche qu’un vin. On sent bien la chaleur de l’alcool également. Assez unique avec l’avoine qui lui donne une corpulence à la hauteur de l’arrogance de ses houblons. Le malt est quelque peu surclassé, définitivement une bombe astringente musclé.

lost my notes on this one. Floral and spicy aroma, obvious Simcoe. Sticky palate with a bitter finish.
