COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
keg and bottled, series special
Hello My Name Is Vladimir is our tongue-in-cheek, limonnik berry infused double IPA. It is the latest in our Hello My Name Is... series, but rather than continue our Scandinavian journey, we’ve travelled east to Russia, to poke fun at uber-hetero Vladimir Putin.
This beer is our first foray into controversy with a cause greater than our own. An ironic beer, but one backed up with some serious flavours.
On the nose there’s a huge explosion of audacious liberally- minded US hops, against a robust yet elegant malt backdrop.
Flavours of malt sweetness and a touch of acidic berry sharpness combine and give way to an avalanche of lightly toasted, fruity blueberry muffin malitiness, followed by a rush of piney resinous US hops to the sides of palate.
The piece de resistance; a mind-bogglingly bitter, yet tongue- twisting tart finish, with both flavour profiles fighting it out to see who will last the longest. The result; a finish as long as a cross-country topless ski journey through Siberia.
*50% of the profits raised through this beer will go directly to charities that represent oppressed minorities around the world.

DSG (5812) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 17, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks tomer. Slightly hazy copper-amber. Aroma of stale hops and some malt. Sweetish flavor, stale, with caramel, stale hops, a bit of alcohol and a bitter finish. Medium-bodied.

Bottle at Cafe Sara, april 25th 2014. Amber body with a big white head. Aroma of strong pine with tangerine, peach, lemon and hints of bread. Taste is quite  clean of ripe exotic fruits, pine, caramel, with a light tart and sweet finish.

cagou007 (325) - FRANCE - SEP 5, 2014
Pours clear amber with medium white head. Nose is fully hoppy with notes of tropical fruits. Aromas are tropical fruits (pineapple, mango, lychees) and a hint of resinous pine. Long and bitter finish, balanced by a sweet note. Very nice IPA, no surprise, but very good stuff here!

330ml bottle of one of BrewDog’s finest. A lively drink which was quite sweet and fruity, but also citrussy and bitter. Not for everyone but definitely one of my favourites. Of course a brilliant tongue-in-cheek protest to Vladimir Putin.

JohnRMurdoch (3285) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - AUG 4, 2014
330ml bottle from BrewDog Glasgow. Dark orange amber, reasonable head. Sweet resin hop aroma. Light pine hop flavour. Sweet aftertaste. Doesnt feel like 8.2%. A bit too sweet for me.
