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.

Desverger (13204) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle from Magasin du Nord, Kongens Nytorv, CPH - (new label/fresh batch) fuzzy orange amber pour with puffy off-white head. Big hoppy tropical fruity aroma and taste, deep caramel malts, toffee, fudge, hop resin and prominent topical grapefruit and peach on the palate, pine needles, dry bitter finish. Stand out DIPA!

BenOver (331) - SLOVENIA - DEC 21, 2014
Very strong hoppy smell. Almost an eteric oil strong one. Pours with quite some head, brown-ish. First taste is full bodied, very well balanced and you just search for the 408 ibu bitterness, but it’s not there! It comes after you swallow and pleasantly dries your mouth. An excellent beer!

@ Beer Ditch 14-11-22: ganska tydelig malt. Humlan är lite mer gömd och den saknar friskhet och sting ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

Fashawn (604) - ITALY - NOV 21, 2014
Buona birra, arancio carico, con una schiuma decentemwnte persistente, fine e compatta anche se a tratti tende a sgranarsi. Buon bouquet floreale, preponderanti sono le note citriche e resinose, con ghiande e aghi di pino ben distinguibili, ma sale anche una lieve intensità aromatica da frutta, come pesche e albicocche, oltre ad uva mela verde e pompelmi. Buona la complessità ma scarsa l’intensità. Imbocco dolce al caramello e al toffee, buona presenza fruttata da frutta dolce come albicocche. Avverto in secondo piano anche pompelmo e arance, ribes e un lieve sentore di papaya. Buono l’amalgama, peccato che la parte dei lieviti sia parecchio dominante w stempera un po’ il finale amaricante. Dopo un po’ la birra diviene monotematica, e questo le fa perdere punti. Buono il corpo, tessitura ideale per il genere, leggera e fluida. Buona birra nel complesso ma non spicca per eccellenza.

Dens syrlige arme holder mig fast til gulvet. Tak for en hed aften. Jeg vil sent glemme dig.

Renobob (2064) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 11, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Magnifique bière très bien équilibrée avec grosse prédominance de houblon. Arômes de fruits exotiques, ananas au palais. Finale longue très aromatique. Beaucoup d'alcool mais on ne le sent quasiment pas. Top !

3.9
Madsen1635 (949) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 6, 2014
Bottle. Completely hazy orange pour with sticky white head. Aroma is solid with huge amount of tropical fruit. Taste is balanced with nice bitterness and sweetness to balance it. Heavy body and low carbonation
