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

Hazy amber color, tons of perfumy nose blueberries in the nose. Big malty backbone with big blueberry notes. This is the biggest bad ass blueberry beer I’ve ever had. Very nice but doesn’t blow me away.

Bardzo intensywny aromat owocowy - owoce tropikalne i borówka przede wszystkim, w tle trochę cytrusów i lekki alkohol. Piana niewielka, barwa piwa bursztynowa. W smaku także borówka na pierwszym miejscu, na drugim cytrusy a potem tropiki - wszystko dość słodkie. Poza tym wyczuwalny alkohol, aczkolwiek nie przeszkadza. W odczuciu pełne, goryczka średnia, po części alkoholowa, a sam alkohol czuć w przełyku. Ciekawa kompozycja, świetny aromat, w smaku mogłoby być więcej goryczki i mniej alkoholu. Ale poza tym - świetnie. Warka do 9.10.’14.

jonas (6786) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle. Pine & lime hop aroma with a fruity spicy edge. Cloudy amber , low golden foam. Melonoidin, roast, blueberries noticable but fitting right in. The spicy hops and berries make me think of flavored vodka for some reason. Medium body, a bit tinny dry on the tip of the tongue. Berry/hop aftertaste.

330ml bottle from Valhalla’s Goat. Hazy orange brown, not much head. Strong sweet syrupy hop aroma. Blueberry hop flavour. Sharp with very bitter aftertaste. Big bold blueberry DIPA.

I expected more. Tried at Ted’s Tarproom in 2014. Light mouthfeel, little aroma, and a small amount of fruit hoppiness.

Paulcut (6) - - JUN 11, 2014 does not count
On tap in brewdog Tokyo. Faint aroma of blueberry but mainly big hop nose. Perfect colour and carbonation. Rich body. Overall solid double ipa but If I was not told I would not have picked up on the blueberries. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

panacea (94) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2014
Light amber with white head. Nose is funky, yeast and sweet. Taste is plain bitter and watery. Where is the hops? Blueberry? Could be the age (batch 237) but not impressed at all. Way below Brewdog and Evil Twin standard.

Joakgust (1351) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 2, 2014
Bottle. Clear amber beer with a large beige head. Aroma is malty with notes of caramel, citrus, peaches and pine needles. Flavor is malty with notes of caramel, spices, blueberries and peaches. Well balanced but a bit boozy.
