3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from bieresgourmet.be webshop. At last, the first of the "Hello, My Name is..." series from BrewDog; been looking for this for quite some time now. Pours a hazy orange body with a small white head. Nose is citrus, cloudberry, sweet herbal-floral notes, wet grass and hints of spruce and red berries. Taste is sweet butterscotch, mild spruce, pine, grass and hints of citrus and mild cloudberry, the latter which is much less evident in taste than aroma. Medium body and carbonation. Pretty decent double IPA with a subtle touch of cloudberries. I like it.

Courtesy of nicklas. Pours clear amber with off white head some lace. Aroma is piny, cat bin, hoppy, thin body. Lean medium mouthfeel. Flavor is hoppy, peppery, sweet and fruity. Acidy tart perry palate. Finishes balanced fruity tart bitter, excellent.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Man in the Moon. Hazy amber colour with a small white head. Floral fruity hops aroma with a lot of citrus to it and a hint of malt. Flavour is fruity, very citric. Can’t say that I can taste the cloudberries, it all drowns in a strong citric flavour that just overwhelms.

Keg @ Brewdog Glasgow. Clear amber colour, fluffy white head. Nose is pine and grapefruit. Flavour is pine hops, massive fruits, juicy. Slight sour, note of stomach acid. Fairly bitter finish. Typical Brewdog hop profile, very similar to the Hardcore IPA. Well done.

On tap at Brewdog camden. Wanted to try this for ages. Piny fruity aroma. Touch of sandlewood. Palete is slightly chewy and very smooth. Strange flavour. Hard to put your finger on.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Smells awesome: blooming, budding fruit hop. The finish of this beer is filled with jammy, berry fruit, which is both sour and sweet. Booze emerges in the end. Begins better than it finishes.

12 ounce bottle poured a light amber color with aromas of citrus, pine, grapefruit, and light bread. Flavors are the same with some citrus and pine paired nicelt. A great DIPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark amber colour with rich hop-induced foam. Rich aroma from tropical fruits, red berries and salty hops along with solid caramelly maltiness. Big, almost oily mouthfeel and felt a bit sweet from residual sugars. Big on the hops, but not overly and really balanced. Berries play well with the hops. Bitterness is on medium-high levels, and lingers nicely as it should. A salty backbone from the hops all along. This is a well crafted Double IPA, that might be just a tad too sweet.
