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

Doble ipa amb nabius. Fresca, aromàtica i un punt aspre. Et deixa un regust amargant al final del glop

Interesting mix of piney, grassy mosaic and sour blueberries with a touch of caramel malt. That is exactly what you get, a mixed of all good tastes, I like it.

29.11.2013. Sitruksinen IPAn tuoksu, maku seuraa tuoksua. Hyvä greippinen IPA jossa kai mustikkaa, en ehkä tietäisi jos ei olisi mainittu. Karamellia, havuja.

Mesjasz (755) - Lodz, POLAND - MAR 24, 2015
Drinked year ago. Kolor: piwo jest klarowne, troche bursztynowe. Piana/wysycenie: bujna, gruba, dlugo si? utrzymuje. Zapach: slodko owocowy, ale bardziej charakterystyczny dla amerykanskich chmieli ni? borowek. Te sa ledwo wyczuwalne. Smak: podobnie jak z zapachem. Bardzo dobra IIPA, raczej dosyc typowa dla stylu, czyli cytusowo-tropikalna. Borowki sa, ale bardzo w tle. Ocena: spodziewalem sie wrecz uderzenia borowki czy tam owocow lesnych a dostalem bardzo konkretne IIPA. Nie zebym byl smutny z tego powodu, bo piwo jest bardzo dobre, ale jednak malo z tej deklaracji etykietowej jest w smaku.

Shark_Pants (565) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 15, 2015
Cloudy ochre colour with small ivory head that quickly recedes to a film. Strong blueberry aroma, along with honey, nectarine, grapefruit and passionfruit. Blueberries are also front and centre in the taste, firstly sweet and then slightly tart toward the finish. Heaps of other flavours there too including all hinted at by the aromas, complementing the very robust sweet malt backbone. Thick and oily mouthfeel. Quite good beer but a bit overly sweet, with not quite enough bitterness and/or dryness to help balance it.

fiulijn (18103) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle at Pibar, Lausanne
Amber color, bright, medium sized head. The aroma has a strong animal component, hoppy, a bit grassy and fruity. Lean mouthfeel; this malt flavor with the strong earthy/manure character is a bit cloying; not too sweet; quite strong bitterness, fitting in the picture, with a touch of dark berries in the final, and very light acidity.
Good beer, but this mix of flavors tends to be chaotic.

Muy aromática muy intensa tanto de sabor color y olor no da la sensación de alcohol que a primera vista debería tener lastima qye sea edición limitada

rouhlas (2270) - GREECE - DEC 11, 2014
330ml bottle at the Hoppy Pub, Thessaloniki. Hazy golden color with white head. Hoppy citrusy aroma, pine, malty caramel. Taste is is sweet and bitter, hoppy fruity piney again and malty. Medium oily body with average carbonation.

veceo (1130) - CROATIA - NOV 7, 2014
Cloudy deep amber color, average off white head. Aroma of blueberries, tropical fruits, peach. Taste is insanely fruity. First the blueberries, and then the whole fruit market. Medium sweet, medium bitter taste. Medium to full body, average carbonation. Long sweet finish. Fruity hop bomb indeed. Holy Grail for fruity DIPA lovers.

azzie (737) - Pula, CROATIA - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle 0,33l. Reddish dark amber cloudy liquid, average head. Full body, ligh carbonation. Omg! Very fruity, aroma of blueberries. Medium bitterness, a bit sour, a bit too sweet what is most noticable at the finish but not overpowering. Great one.

Sublirony (43) - SINGAPORE - OCT 16, 2014
Bottle. Dark yellow, almost orange. Generous head that recedes; aroma is pine, citrus, and--yes--berry. Very ample in the mouth; nice and bitter. The berry comes through beautifully on the finish, but don't believe it's sweet! A truly enjoyable experiment, if initially somewhat unlikely. Good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
