COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg & Bottle, Specially brewed by BrewDog’s Swedish importer at BrewDog, exclusivly for Sweden.
A double IPA with Cloudberries added to the conditioning tank. So just who is Ingrid? Perhaps she’s a reference to the Swedish silver screen icon or maybe it’s the line seemingly spoken by every other Swedish actress in films from the 60s and 70s (we know you know the ones we’re talking about). One thing is certain – this Swedish inspired Double IPA is not as innocent as she at first appears. A seductive body of rich malts and a buxom amount of Citra, Nelson Sauvin and Bramling Cross hops have been added to fresh Scandinavian cloudberries to deliver this beer’s raunchy tart finish. Designed by the readers of Swedish beer blog BeerSweden, ‘Hello, My Name is Ingrid’ is a celebration of all that is great about Sweden. It does not, however, contain any pickled herrings. Or meatballs.

33cl bottle, batch #303, BBE 07/2012. Thanks a lot Darren!! Poured hazy amber with a white head that quickly disappeared. Aroma has caramel, tropical fruitiness and cloudberries. Flavor has dark fruits, bitter hops, caramel and tart berries. Finish is dry, and also quite sweet. Great mouthfeel though. Very easy to drink. This was surely a great beer when fresh.

33cl bottle. Pours amber with a slight haze and a foamy off-white head. Hop forward aroma with grapefruits and resin. Good amount of sweetness, tons of fruitiness, well balaned by the bitter hoppy kick. The berries are definitely there and let this beer shine. Good body, almost vreamy mouthfeel. Slith tartness from the berries. This is just superb.

Feb 2013 – coldish bottlle. Big head. Sweet, pretty bitter, mid body, can taste a bit of alcohol. Not bad, but not one to rush back to either.

Appearance: 5/5 Hazy golden-orange with a reddish tint. Big fluffy dirty white head. Looks appealing, I like that it’s not clear and the foam stayed for a long time. Smell: 8/10 I smell it right away when I start to pour the bottle, lots of fruits, citrus, grapefruit and berries. The cloud berries are definitely there, I’m surprised as I didn’t think it would make such an impact on the smell. Taste: 8/10 Very nice taste, I get the same kind of fruity hops as in the smell, citrus, grape and berries. Just as in the smell the cloud berries are there. It’s also quite sweet with a rich malty body. The bitterness isn’t very strong or aggressive but it’s there and it lasts quite a while. Mouthfeel: 4/5 Fairly smooth, thick body and low to medium amount of carbonation. Comment: I have to admit I love DIPAs and this is one is a good example of why I like they style. It’s got a very pleasant fruity hoppy flavour and the cloud berries are definitely there. However they aren’t too overpowering, it’s a noticeable yet subtle flavour, just enough to mix with the aromas from the hops and yeast. All of it is balanced by a very sweet malty body, I think they left enough residual sugar in this beer to ferment a light beer. Most likely they mashed it at a fairly high temperature, 67 degrees or above. Either that or the sweetness comes from the cloud berries, hard to tell exactly what the addition of fruits did to this brew. All I know it wasn’t a failure, I see it as inspiration to attempt my Chocolate Cherry Stout again :)

Thanks to Darren for bringing this fresh bottle all the way from Sweden! The pour is orange/golden with a nice creamy white head. The aroma is massive sweet, juicy mango and papaya. The flavor has more complexity with the Nelson hops giving it notes of white wine, tropical fruit, and berries. Great bitterness with a hearty malt profile that doesn’t interfere with the hops. I was really impressed with this one and wish I could get more of this fresh. Probably never will. Thanks again Darren, good on ya mate!

(draught) pours a hazy golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of orange peel, herbal hops, grass, mango and caramel, with a light hint of pepper. flavour is heavily resinous and quite sweet, with notes of caramel, raisins and a touch of alcohol. medium to heavy-bodied with fizzy carbonation.

Pyrmir (5247) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2013
330 ml bottle, won in a beer tasting quiz. Aroma with lots of cloudberries and caramel. Taste is fairly bitter from cloudberries, rich caramel notes. Aftertaste is wonderful with a nice balance between cloudberries, sweetness and bitterness.
