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

Davros (2812) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 5, 2014
Pours deep amber with a large head. Nose shows fruity hops, sweet crystal malt, passion fruit, lychee and pear. Fruity flavours too, but this time the blueberry comes into play in a subtle way. Lots more sweet clean malt in true Brewdog fashion followed by an aggressive, piny bitterness. Body feels a little thick.

znawca (59) - POLAND - MAR 5, 2014
AROMA: medium-intensive, sweet tropical fruits, rather hop-based, no specific notes of blue berries; APPEARANCE: dark amber, hazy, visible particles of suspension TASTE: fair sweetness as well as bitterness (not only from hops but also from alcohol); PALATE: medium body, soft carbonation; quite long but not astringent bitterness; OVERALL: very pleasant beer, but where is the tonne of blueberries?

Pours translucent amber orange with a smaller beige ring for a head. Aroma brings blueberry tea and light lemony mosaic hops. Body is big and rich with some booze, citrus, and blueberries and big rich malty presence mixed with a subtle zesty hop spice at the end.

minutemat (4437) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2014
330ml bottle from brewdog.com. Lovely fresh fruity aroma, pours a reddish-copper colour. A grapefruit bitterness just about beats the fruitiness for your attention and although you hope the blueberries overtake before the end they trail behind for the duration. It’s a nice fruity shine to a nice double IPA, and the mosaic makes itself known all too well. An enjoyable beer even if the pieces don’t gel too perfectly.

On bottle from Vinmonopolet Stovner ( on order). Golden color, good foam. Immediate hop aromas; medium intensity- then nice blueberry aromas. Also some citrus & light caramel & vanilla. Medium/ full body & high complexity. Good bitterness & balance. Very enjoyable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
