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

yngwie (15759) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle. A clear, dark golden beer with a dense light beige head. A very fruity one, lots of berries and piney hops in the aroma. Some caramel notes. Pine cones, resins, berries, pale malts and quite a lot of bitterness in the flavor. Full body, dry, with a nice carbonation level. Berries and hops in the finish. Nice, especially the berry touch. 131129

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 (11983) - 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

330ml bottle (Pudel, Tallinn)
Horrible brewdog aroma, stinky pungent rat cage that hasn’t been cleaned since their latest piss-fight. Looked better, rich red, if a bit flat. Taste is a horror. Grassy hops, bitter, probably poisonous red berries. Does get less horrible after a few sips, but it’s still that horrible brewdog sticky sweet malt pale ale taste which I detest. Crystal malts? Soapy finish, a bit acidic. Quite horrible as a beer, no thank you.
