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

Bottle @Beer Hunters
Clear deep ruby color, small white head. Fruity, berryish, some caramel in the nose. Medium-bodied. Mostly pine needle hoppy with some sweet notes, perhaps more like tropical fruits here than blueberries (Mosaic overrides berries?). Something like BrewDog house flavors. Interesting, but not enough to have another one.

Christian (11274) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 12, 2014
Hazy orange with a lasting white head. Big hoppy aroma of citrus, peach, pine and tropical fruit, with little else. Sweetish fruity flavour with lots of hops, and a good, elegant bitterness that lasts
