COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
keg and bottled, special
Brewed in collaboration with Jeppe from Evil Twin Brewing (and named after his mum), this Double IPA is big on fruity flavours.
The latest instalment in our “Hello My Name Is…” series, this beer has been built on the same robust malt base as its predecessors and single hopped with Mosaic for lots of tropical, passion fruit and citrus flavours. Loaded with well over 100kg of blueberries, this is one super fruity hop bomb.
Malts: Extra Pale, Caramalt, Wheat
Hops: Mosaic
Twist: Loaded with heaps of blueberries

Beersiveknown (4009) - NORTHERN IRELAND - OCT 29, 2013
Bottle at hotel from brewdog Bristol
Clear pale amber with beige lacing. Sweet floral, slight passion fruit on nose. Medium carbonation, sweet at first, floral, bitter creeps in but more integrated than other hello beers. Floral blueberries in finish.

jamestulloch (2202) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 29, 2013
Bottle from Cornelius. Clear golden body with a thick off-white head. Lively carbonation. Light lacing. Stunning aroma of blueberries, lavender, passionfruit, mango and lemongrass. Flavour doesn’t quite live up to the power and complexity of the aroma, but it packs a tropical fruit punch nonetheless. Deceptively drinkable for 8.2% ABV. Thin to medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. A unique, fruity DIPA that I would definitely have again.

gyllenbock (5900) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 27, 2013
On tap at Mikkeller Bar, October 2013. Dark golden with a small white head. Aroma and taste of some herbs, fruit, malt, citrus, some alcohol. Not as fruity as expected. Still a descent beer.

Fin (8417) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2013
On tap at Brewdog, Shoreditch, Saturday 26th October 2013 Pours copper in colour to my eyes, but quite dark in here, good clarity with a snall white head. Robust malty and hoppy beer sweet but then a light almost casual dryness, like it is unintended. Full flavoured in mouth fruity sourness, alcohol sits quite heavily. A7 A4 T7 P3 Ov14 3.5

33cl. Bottle. Pours red amber with white head. Aroma citrus, berries, tropical fruits, pine, peach, malts. Taste fruity berrylike sweets, strong bitter. Mouthfeel thin, bit oily. Nice beer.

Ktwse (2840) - SWEDEN - OCT 25, 2013
Pours clear reddish amber with low white head. Aroma of citrus, fruit, berries, maybe even blueberries. Taste is fruit sweet initially followed by lingering bitter finish. The blueberries come through more in the taste. Body is medium and creamy with soft carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

McNeillR (1778) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 24, 2013
Slightly dark amber, off white lasting head. Skinful of watery blueberries, wrapped in tinfoil of malt. Neat and sweet initial taste, middle of the road carbonation doesn’t leave a trudging finish of soft berry meddley, straightforward hop juiciness sweels a bitter enough finish, but a werid frozen booze burn of fruit compote sweet linger
