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

azzie (819) - 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 (44) - 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" sorozatnak első, ltalam kstolt darabja egy tekintlyes mennyisgű feketeribizli hozzadsval kszlt norvg koprodukci, a főzsből ugyanis az Evil Twin Brewing is kivette a rszt. A hozzadott bogys gymlcs mentn li ht az lett ez a dupla IPA, fantasztikusan tiszta borostyn szne s vkonyka habja all elsőknt egy gyants, amolyan kemnykezű pale ale-es aroma szűrődik ki, amit perceken bell felvlt, vagy legalbbis onnantl kezdve dominl egy jl rezhető feketeribizlis illatradat. Kellemesen fanyar, szegfűs jegyek ezek, s mivel ez a fajta ribiszks aromahangulat egybknt is sok IPA sajtja, remekl illik a sr karakterhez, termszetesen olvad bele az sszkpbe. Illatnak testet ltse aztn egy igen elegns, visszafogott, mgis rezhetően tartalmas zkompozciban trtnik meg, lnk, trpusi gymlcss zamatai remekl sznesti a kiss ments, ekkppen zestett rggumik aromjt idző feketeribizlis rnyalat. A keserűsg foka is egszen barti, minden elem teret hagy a msiknak az rvnyeslshez.

Lowenbrau (4000) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - SEP 11, 2014
33cl bottle @El Coleccionista, Gijn.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 (762) - 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.

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.

33cl bottle shared. Pours clear amber with a small off white head. Smells of caramel, sweet fruits, ripe berries and some resinous notes. Taste starts sweet and develops super fruity (tropical fruits, berries, red oranges) with citrus peel and sweet notes. Medium hoppy dry finish. Very good.
