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.

callmemickey (4381) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 Hazy golden-orange body. Large, long-lasting white head. Good lacing. Strong grapefruit and pine presence. A bitty catty and vegetal at times. With each sip, the biscuit and caramel malts start to overwhelm. The hoppy notes get a bit lost in this malty assault. Medium-full bodied, a bit cloying, and not as dry as an imperial IPA should be.

TURDFERGUSON (4051) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Bottle from Tasty Beverage Co. in Raleigh, NC. Pours opaque cloudy orange with large, frothy, small bubbled egg shell colored head. Nose shows some sweetness up front (which I’ve come to expect from IPA from Denmark), citrus, pine, herbal hops as well as some tropical notes--papaya, guava, pineapple. Flavor is bitter and dry with some light sweetness. More grapefruit and tropical notes, and very dry for the country. Surprised by the little amount of residual sweetness. Alcohol very well hidden. 10.5. Wow. Nice.

sebletitje (9556) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 22, 2012
draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Orangée brumeuse, col beige. Arôme est chargé de fruits tropicaux, entre papaye, mangue et agrumes avec une pointe de pin et grains. En bouche, palais est épais et résineux voire liquoreux, alcool est bien présent et est presque de trop pour cette bière qui aurait grandement profité de 2% en moins. Houblon est donc bien présent, léger pin, avec un malt/grains et avoine épais en retrait. Au final, la bière tient son objectif, on se prend plein de houblon, mais le tout ne parvient pas à convaincre entre le bon houblonné et l’excès.

blafa (511) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2012
Draft at Ørsted Ølbar. Copenhagen, March 2012.
Pours dark orange, creamy off-white head. Aromas of tropical fruits, heavy malt body behind it with notes of caramels and candy. Quite hoppy as well. The body is big and rich with loads of malt and a pleasant bitterness. Notes of red berries.

ROGUE (2205) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - MAR 6, 2012
11.2oz bottle. Pours a hazy burnt orange colcor with a two finger white head that quickly fades to light lacing. Smells of heavy pine and citrus hops. Pretty pungent. Tastes malty sweet upfront followed by a lasting bitterness. Tastes fruity but with a big malt character. The hop presense is not as big in the taste as it is in the smell. Mouthfeel is a light to medium with lots of carbonation.

suprchunk (2985) - Crestview, Florida, USA - FEB 28, 2012
Hazy orange colored pour. Small off-white head. Not much lacing. A hoppy aroma, some citrus notes, little bit of butterscotch. Same with the taste. Bitter front, middle, and back. Slightly carbonic. Little bit of malt in the flavor as well, but not much to balance the hops out. Slight chalkiness. Pretty decent beer overall though. (haha, overall)

JorisPPattyn (9672) - Ursel, BELGIUM - FEB 23, 2012
Medium, dense, lightly yellowish coloured head over hazy orange-ochre beer. Cat’s pee, blackcurrant leaf, passion fruit. Rather catty hops, definitely, even a bit of human sweat. Yet, Overall it’s quite, and mainly, fruity. Very bitter, with hops, citrus, citruspeel, but also arachide, peanuts. Some fatty acids? (@ De Proef???) Woodbark, and a peppery finish. Cattiness all but gone in the mouth, but also much less fruity than the nose. Sharp MF, quite carbonated, medium bodied and very slick, but a tad agressive. Another one that, let’s be honest, is pretty unidimensional, Overall...

drunkenpolack (319) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - FEB 1, 2012
It has glowing, hazy, cloudy orange. This beer is huge on taste and aroma. As soon as you pour this beer a grapefruit and citrus aroma blasts the nostrils. I had this beer a good 5 feet away from me and I could smell it. Overpowering taste of grapefruit. Citrus and pine follow but damn grapefruit dominates in a way that I’ve never quite got from any other IPA. I enjoyed it a lot.

Hammy78 (961) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2012
Bottle purchased at "The Village Beer Merchant" in Buffalo. Pours a hazy/ cloudy orange, huge white head that is quite active, leaves a lot of spiderweb lacing behind. Aroma is super citrus, grapefruit, orange, peach, a bit of hops. Tastes bitter there’s no question about that. The bitterness hit the roof of your mouth even. Tastes sweet as well and soft/ smooth in the mouth and on the tongue. Still some citrus in there, but more like lemon zest. You don’t have to threaten me with a Mikkeller brew, always comes through tasting awesome.

lamas (1611) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 4, 2012
11.2 oz. bottle. # on the cap: 7641102. A muddy rust-colored pour with a smallish beige head. A musky aroma featuring plenty of grapefruits, citrus rinds, pine, toffee, caramel, and some herbaceousness. Goes down thick, full-bodied, and creamy. Rich caramel maltiness, toffee, and some spice upfront in the taste. Kinda bready. Hints of cream and honey. Grapefruits and orange juice at the end. The alcohol is well-hidden (aside from a little warmth), but packed a punch by the end.
