COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Dette er Overall IIPA, men fuldstændigt stoppet med kaffe, som supplementerer humlens flygtige citrus og gran aromaer med dybde og rundhed. Dette resulterer i en hybrid øl, der dækker over genre som IIPA, Black IPA, Barley Wine og American Strong. Dette er efterfølger/opfølgeren på tidligere godt samarbejde med Mikkeller - Viagra og koffein er altid et perfekt miks.

English: The sequel to the Mikkeller/To Øl collab "Overall IIPA". The same beer but with tons of nice nutty aromatic espresso coffee. This is hybrid beer if ever seen one. The combination of fruits and citrus from the hops and the round coffee aromas plus the warmth of the alcohol makes this a clash of a IIPA, Black IPA, American strong and Barley Wine. Cheers!

ChainGangGuy (4280) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 26, 2013
11.2 ounce bottle - $5.99 at Lucky’s in Woodstock, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours out a clouded, dark orange body with a sea foam spray-type, lightly yellowed head.

Smell: Resinous, citrus oils commingled with wafting, stinging alcohol and brewed (and subsequently chilled) coffee ahead of the sweetish malt notes failing to make much of an impression.

Taste: A toffee and caramel syrup maltiness with a quick pop of sugary sweetness. This upfront sweetness is swiftly knocked aside by a full rush of pithy citrus, resinous hops and a bold bitterness, as well as the coffee flavor and peppery, punchy alcohol qualities. Drying, bitter finish that’s a bit hot. Lingering astringency and alcoholic harshness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: I didn’t really like it. Not that I have a beef with the concept, as I quite enjoyed BHB’s recent Wrong Em Boyo. Now c’mere and give me a hug!

EithCubes (4623) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Bottle, new to the shelves here, but no idea how old it is, and the date on the cap is smeared; thinking best by August ’14, or thereabouts. Nose of strangely clashing citrus and strong espresso, two things I love but which work at cross-purposes here. Pours hazy golden with orange and brown slashes and a tan head strongly reminiscent of when ice cream is dunked in root beer. Taste is lightly sweet but undercut and with a strong bitter and lightly astringent current, indefinite hops mingle with roast of both malt and coffee beans, strongly nutty. Light fruit and citrus, medium body. This is a classic "kitchen sink" beer familiar to homebrewers (and resembling one of my own coffee infusions), and as such a monstrosity. Does manage to pep me up, though!

wlajwl (3546) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Aroma is citrus, grapefruit, coffee and earthiness. The flavor is citrus, grapefruit, coffee, mild hop resin notes, earthiness and a tangy/bitter finish.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 08.06.2013, 0,33l bottle sampled @ BBGTC tasting:
Fizzy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly dry, coffee beans, grass, caramel, hay, pine needles. Taste is slightly sweet and dry, coffee beans, caramel, dark sugar, roasted grain, grass, nuts. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Nice one!

From a bottle poured a brown color with a small amount of head. Strong bitter coffee flavor with a light hoppy finish.

mikkopen (788) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUN 7, 2013
330 ml bottle. Hazy orange colour, thin off-white head. Aroma of citrus, roasted coffee and floral hops. Malty flavour, with citrus fruits, roasted coffee and notes of pine in the hoppy finish. Very tasty and well balanced - I wasn’t sure what to expect from this chimera of a beer when I opened the bottle.

schismatik (5) - WHITTIER, USA - JUN 6, 2013 does not count
The aroma is coffee roasty smell with a weird hop dankyness. Beer isn’t too pretty to look at but with the ingredients used I wouldn’t expect much clarity. I’m a daily coffee drinker and the coffee flavor in this is amazing. This beats dayman ipa for sure. The light medium mouthfeel is a great change of pace from the typical rich mouthfeel that’s generally acompanied from roasty stouts.

greenhorn1 (781) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle. Wow, interesting brew. Pours cloudy with a filmy thin head. Aroma and flavor bold espresso. In fact, more pronounced than many coffee stouts I have tried. This is a total mind f$&@!, because there is a strong ipa profile, malty and bitter. Admittedly, I didn’t think the combo would work, but of course Mikkeller figured it out. Only downfall is it very rich and I don’t think I could drink more than one, but this is a must try.

Brouwerij (884) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle thanks to Alemax. Pours a dark copper, hazy with pillowy off white head. Great retention and some thin lacing. Aroma is roasted, espresso, with a pleasant citrus, hoppy background. Flavor is equally well balanced, nice roasted coffee tones up front with a mellow hop, bitter finish, mildly resinous. Nice that neither the coffee nor hops have drown out the other. Alcohol is very well hidden as expected with such a bold flavor profile. Moderate carbonation and medium body. Was weary of the combination of styles, but this is truly well done. Very enjoyable, rich, intense and interesting.

Cybercat (2986) - Georgia, USA - MAY 30, 2013
Strong, hoppy aroma has a decided coffee overtone - quality coffee, that is, not the slop you get at the office. Pours a very appetizing dark honey golden that is hazy to the point of being barely translucent, with a thick and fluffy, though not too persistent, wheat head. Hoppy flavor has firm coffee and orange notes with more than a hint of chocolate. The best of both a great IPA and a great stout! My taste buds are dancing with joy. Firm, smooth texture has a decent, if not large, amount of fizz. A hybrid beer? How about calling it Prius? ;)
