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.

Orange hazy pour with a small. creamy, white head. Some lacing. Fresh citrus hop aroma with lots of juicy malt supporting the hops. Some pine resin as well. The taste goes over your tongue with the juicy malt sweetness going first with the hop bitterness chasing right on the heels of the sweetness. All stays pretty much in balance however.

Bottle @ Dan’s house. Slightly hazy, yellow orange appearance with an off white head. Huge grapefruit, pineapple hoppy nose. Pretty bitter, floral, grapefruity citrusy hoppy flavor with some booze. Bitter, slightly boozy, grapefruity finish.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 30, 2011
Bottle (picked up in Australia but drunk in NZ). So much grapefruit and toffee, pine and citrus, crisp but creamy. A damn fine example of a IIPA, I’m delighting in the lingering dryness.

Pours hazy gold into a tulip. Off-white head with little retention recedes to mottle surface. Earthy resin and pear aromas. Sweet caramel and oats upfront turning to hot resin in the dry, lasting finish.

Bottle at Churchkey. Murky golden color, white edge head. Aroma of citrus > pine. Taste is grapefruit and pine resins. Incredible body. Nice one.

drjay44 (3829) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JUN 22, 2011
330. ml. bottle. Pours a medium, ivory head, with some lacing, over a hazy light amber (SRM 7) body....nose is medium pine, light citrus, toffee/caramel....taste is sweet toffee/caramel to start, then pine, citrus bitterness, with a touch of pineapple arrive to partially balance the sweetness, finishing with a light licorice tone, the bitterness lingers....mouth feel is thick, carbonation low. This is a pretty typical IIPA. It is nicely balanced, has all the aromas and flavors one expects. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7

bhensonb (15756) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 20, 2011
Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours hazy peach with a transient creamy off-white head. Aroma is almost slightly old cat pee- but lets call it over-heated citrus. Flavor is floral, cooked light stone fruit, and citrus. It is nicely bitter and extremely pleasing.

marcus (10671) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 20, 2011
Bottle from Healthy Spirits. Pours cloudy blonde with a modest off-white head and a funky fruit aroma. There is a slightlly sour caramel malt flavor with a lot of fruitiness and a bitter finish. A very nice version of DIPA.

Bottle picked up at StateLine.... Poured into a snifter... cloudy orange color. Taste good! Kind of a fruity DIPA.... Citrus,mango, pineapple, light pine notes, grass, musty. On the sweet side. Lots of stuff going on here. Very enjoyable. Texture is on the heavier/thicker side. Alcohol isnt noticable but it warmed me up quickly. Overall: Overall is a good DIPA from my favorite euro brewery! (I am biased... love mikkeller brews!) Another thanks to matt from stateline for picking this out!
