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

Bov (9492) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 29, 2014
from la Mise en Bière</> - pours a hazy reddish-orange beer with a moderate foam left; blueberries appear evident in front of a fair resiney and flowery hoppiness; full-bodied, a subtle yet fair carbonation, some sweetness and a late fruity sourness; a long resiney hoppy bitterness develops in the finish where the blueberries are more discrete

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.

Tasty DIPA, on tap at Blue Monk. Big IBU however still well balanced. Blueberry in the secondary lending interesting notes. Some lace. Good drinkability

Rune (8044) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2014
200ml glass, on tap at Crowbar. Almost clear amber coloured body. Beige head that laces nicely. Dried fruity aroma with mid-sweet brown malts behind. Succulent hop driven taste, lemon, orange and grapefruit. Solid bitter endnotes. A well-crafted beer (Meet up with Arve Christian,Oslo 12.02.2014).

Meilby (7609) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle 330ml @ Patricks Pub og Restaurant, Kristiansand
Pours slightly hazy deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, orange, peach, citrus and hint of pine and alcohol. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long warm, fruity and piney finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Fin (7409) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2013
On tap at Brewdog, Shoreditch, Saturday 26th October 2013 Pours copper in colour to my eyes, but quite dark in here, good clarity with a snall white head. Robust malty and hoppy beer sweet but then a light almost casual dryness, like it is unintended. Full flavoured in mouth fruity sourness, alcohol sits quite heavily. A7 A4 T7 P3 Ov14 3.5

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2014
Bottle. Reddish amber capped with white. Good stewed ganja and celery-like hop aroma with grapefruit, mandarin and calamine back notes; also honeyed biscuit. Smooth and malt slick mouthfeel; clean cut brittle hop suggesting curry leaf, dried flowers, cannabis and subcontinental spices plus the usual soft tropical explosions. Not picking up much if any blueberry which is a relief, or melds so seamlessly with the hop profile it’s barely noticeable. Either way, beautiful IPA.

Scopey (6812) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2013
Bottle from BrewDog Shoreditch. It pours clear amber with a medium white head. The nose sweet, juicy blueberry, pine, light toast and grapefruit. The taste is crisp, bitter, resinous, juicy berry, red grape, passion fruit, grapefruit, light fruity tartness, toast and grass with a dry, very bitter finish. Medium body and medium+ carbonation. Nice bitterness and very drinkable given the abv.

rosenbergh (6800) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2013
330 ml bottle. #237. BB 09/10/14. Kahdet Kasvot, Tampere, Finland. Clear amber colour with a small white head. Strange hoppy aroma... I can't say what it is... maybe some exotic fruits... and mild bitterness. Not bad at all. The flavour is... well... interesting... Not necessarily very tasty. Moderate bitterness and some... caramel maltiness and something I really can't put my finger on... Mild sweetness there too. 8.2% is very well hidden. After all I won't need another one... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft @ Hoppy Loft. Orangée portant sur le cuivre, col blanc. Arôme offre de très belles effluves de pin, profond bouquet sève avec un léger rétro-nasal portant sur le malté caramel. Palais est ici aussi axé sur le pin, malté, notes houblonnées assez légères. Houblon rappelant des notes proches de Galaxy et Simcoe décrivant le caractère de Mosaic. Le tout est assez huileux et franchement pas de traces de myrtilles. Ici je trouve le profil pin nettement plus présent et dominant. Malt quant à lui offre une belle palette caramel et un côté très écossais - Brewdog.
