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

KyotoLefty (6449) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 21, 2014
Tap at 23 Beerz. Sweet orange nose, milky, berries. Orange-gold color with a low, fine head. Pretty soft, sweet, and malty. Very fruity, berries and oranges. Soft and silky. A bit strange but original and tasty.

lusikka (6239) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 30, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a dark copper golden colour with an off-white foamy head. Aroma of floral hops, some berries, citrus and some caramel. Rich flavour of herbal hoppiness, caramel malts, passion fruit, pungent citrus and surprisingly strong juicy berries. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and smooth mouthfeel. Finishes juicy, bitter and berryish. Berries are much more upfront than on the Mette Marit brew. I kinda like it, but maybe it’s the Mosaic talking.

Svesse (6137) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 20, 2014
(Draught at Man in the Moon, Stockholm, 11 Jan 2014) Reddish amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of citrus, orange and caramel. Fruity, hoppy taste with citrus, grapefruit, apricots, caramel, hints of blueberries and a generous citric bitterness. Almost full body, with a slight sweetness. Well balanced and tasty, with the berries more in the background than in some of the sister brews, but still quite evident, more so in the taste than in the aroma. Very nice.

swoopjones (5887) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 22, 2013
draft at Blue Monk, Buffalo. golden copper with slight blue/purple tint. sweet aroma, touch of blueberries. sweet malts, fruity bitterness, mild blueberry. I dont think i would have been able to pinpoint the blueberries if it had not been noted, but they are subtlely active.

Geokkjer (5720) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 26, 2014
Bottle at Patricks. Pours hazy golden with an off white head. Aroma of citrus, floral hops, some berries and pine. Flavor is sweet and fruity with some pine, peach, some alcohol and floral notes. Medium body, average carbonation.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2013
33 cl bottle @ William K Kurvi. Batch #237, BBE 09.10.2014
Aroma is fruity and juicy with caramel and pineapples. Flavour is tart with some fruity hops, lingonberries, grapefruits and caramel. The tartness and bitterness do not quite match. Not bad anyway.

jonas (5638) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle. Pine & lime hop aroma with a fruity spicy edge. Cloudy amber , low golden foam. Melonoidin, roast, blueberries noticable but fitting right in. The spicy hops and berries make me think of flavored vodka for some reason. Medium body, a bit tinny dry on the tip of the tongue. Berry/hop aftertaste.
