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

bursprak (721) - Aarhus, - NOV 23, 2013
33 cl bottle. Pours bronze with a small head. Aroma is very refreshing with grapefruit, mango and some blueberries. Taste is a bit disappointing, expected more hoppyness with tropical fruit but taste was more malty. Nice bitter finish.

veceo (620) - 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.

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 (20) - 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

Doftar gott fruktigt, med bra inslag av blåbär. Smaken är riktigt bra och även där är blåbärssmaken tydlig. Flaska från Systembolaget. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A BrewDog "My name is" sorozatának első, általam kóstolt darabja egy tekintélyes mennyiségű feketeribizli hozzáadásával készült norvég koprodukció, a főzésből ugyanis az Evil Twin Brewing is kivette a részét. A hozzáadott bogyós gyümölcs mentén éli hát az életét ez a dupla IPA, fantasztikusan tiszta borostyán színe és vékonyka habja alól elsőként egy gyantás, amolyan keménykezű pale ale-es aroma szűrődik ki, amit perceken belül felvált, vagy legalábbis onnantól kezdve dominál egy jól érezhető feketeribizlis illatáradat. Kellemesen fanyar, szegfűs jegyek ezek, és mivel ez a fajta ribiszkés aromahangulat egyébként is sok IPA sajátja, remekül illik a sör karakteréhez, természetesen olvad bele az összképbe. Illatának testet öltése aztán egy igen elegáns, visszafogott, mégis érezhetően tartalmas ízkompozícióban történik meg, élénk, trópusi gyümölcsös zamatai remekül színesíti a kissé mentás, ekképpen ízesített rágógumik aromáját idéző feketeribizlis árnyalat. A keserűség foka is egészen baráti, minden elem teret hagy a másiknak az érvényesüléshez.

Lowenbrau (2105) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - SEP 11, 2014
33cl bottle @El Coleccionista, Gijón.16-02-2014.
In short: weird dry IPA.
Pours hazy dark golden, with some off white head. Poor head retention, poor lacing. Some caramel and berries aromas Medium body, average carbonation, oily texture. Taste is quite bitter and dry, berries, fruity. Bitterness and bitterness, not much else. A bit dissapointing.

HKdIPA (286) - HONG KONG - SEP 8, 2014
Tap at Taps in KL. Translucent copper pour with minimal head. Aroma is fruity hops but not very strong. Taste starts with crispy bitterness then fruity - not just blueberry - flavor. The blueberry is present but if I didn't know I'd probably just think it generally fruity, but that's not a bad thing. Very smooth palate. Bitter dry finish. Solid DIPA and happy to get to try a collaboration between two brewers I like so much, but not as special/odd as I thought it would be. Very drinkable - would get again.

Bottle. This was pretty old by the time I got to it but is was still pretty nice. The blueberries are a nice touch.

venom666 (389) - Elche, SPAIN - AUG 1, 2014
Amber/Red color with white short-lasting head. Aroma is sweet, fruity (red and tropical fruits, apple and peach) and hoppy. Grapefruits, hops and pine are present on the taste, with clear and strong sweet touches due to blueberry and sweet caramel. Aftertaste is between sweet and bitter, which does not persist so much.
