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 (10926) - 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

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 (9159) - 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

Fin (8702) - 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

33 cl bottle @ Naamat, Tampere.
Pours dark copper color with a small head. Aroma of exotic fruits, faint bilberries and some caramel, floral hops also. Flavour of fruits, resinous hops and distant bilberry. Decent.
