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

shoulderbroken (3448) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 20, 2014
Bottle. Bottle. Dark orange colour, aroma is bit stinky hop, lots of malt, booze, bit of fruit. Taste is nice, bit of fruit again, probably couldn’t pick it as blueberry, caramel malty, some sweetness, cakey. Maybe it’s lost a bit of its fruitiness, but it’s nice enough.

L_inconnu (64) - SWITZERLAND - APR 19, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2014 Une très bonne double IPA, bien "typée" (merci Evil Twin), on sent parfaitement les myrtilles, que ce soit au nez ou au palais. Bémol : elle est beaucoup trop chère pour ce que c’est. Mais bon, quand on aime on compte pas ^^

TheJestersBeer (2332) - SWEDEN - APR 18, 2014
330ml bottle. Pours a lightly hazy deep amber, with a wite head. Hoppy, resiny aroma, orange peel, blueberries, spruce, caramel, mango, strawberries. Off-dry, medium bodied, mid to high bitterness, balanced CO2. Hoppy, fruity taste, caramel, spruce, grapefruit peel, earth,blueberries, resin, apricot. Quite light and held back for a DIPA, light blueberry notes that are quite well balanced. Quite decent, but still a bit of the usual BrewDog meh. (2014-04-18)

330ml bottle from Brewdog Online Shop:
Sweet tropical fruit smells with quite a lot of hops & plenty of pine notes as well, there is some citrus as well and to a lesser extent some grapefruit as well. I could detect some berries coming through as well.
Deep amber with a 1.5cm foamy, white head that reduces slightly initially then holds well after that.
Sweet with a lot of bitterness and some citrus plus a plenty of hops as well. Sweeter than the nose with the blueberries making themselves more known too. Tropical fruits with pineapple, some apricot and mango all feature & it’s rounded of with a faint touch of caramel.
Smooth, sweet and very bitter with a medium body and light medium carbonation. The beers alcohol content is well hidden although a few hints come through.

A definite improvement from the last in the series I tried from Brewdog, Hello My Name Is Mette Marit although this one wasn’t exactly a classic either. This one was very sweet with plenty of tropical notes and some blueberries as well but it seemed to be missing that something special and wasn’t up there with the top double IPA’s that I’ve tried.
