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

Draft at Shepherds Bush. Pours Brown golden with a thick, fast fading white head. Aroma is grapefruit, peach, red berries, a ton of hops and caramel. Taste isn’t that bitter, full bodied. Minimal carbonation.

Nice sweet and fruity DIPA. Nice body of hops and very easy to drink and enjoy.

Fruits, hop and berries in the aroma. The taste is so balanced. The blueberries brings sweetness that is balanced out by the bitter hops that last throughout the long finish. Great beer!

Interesting mix of piney, grassy mosaic and sour blueberries with a touch of caramel malt. That is exactly what you get, a mixed of all good tastes, I like it.

29.11.2013. Sitruksinen IPAn tuoksu, maku seuraa tuoksua. Hyvä greippinen IPA jossa kai mustikkaa, en ehkä tietäisi jos ei olisi mainittu. Karamellia, havuja.

Drinked year ago. Kolor: piwo jest klarowne, troche bursztynowe. Piana/wysycenie: bujna, gruba, dlugo si? utrzymuje. Zapach: slodko owocowy, ale bardziej charakterystyczny dla amerykanskich chmieli ni? borowek. Te sa ledwo wyczuwalne. Smak: podobnie jak z zapachem. Bardzo dobra IIPA, raczej dosyc typowa dla stylu, czyli cytusowo-tropikalna. Borowki sa, ale bardzo w tle. Ocena: spodziewalem sie wrecz uderzenia borowki czy tam owocow lesnych a dostalem bardzo konkretne IIPA. Nie zebym byl smutny z tego powodu, bo piwo jest bardzo dobre, ale jednak malo z tej deklaracji etykietowej jest w smaku.

Cloudy ochre colour with small ivory head that quickly recedes to a film. Strong blueberry aroma, along with honey, nectarine, grapefruit and passionfruit. Blueberries are also front and centre in the taste, firstly sweet and then slightly tart toward the finish. Heaps of other flavours there too including all hinted at by the aromas, complementing the very robust sweet malt backbone. Thick and oily mouthfeel. Quite good beer but a bit overly sweet, with not quite enough bitterness and/or dryness to help balance it.

fiulijn (21516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle at Pibar, Lausanne
Amber color, bright, medium sized head. The aroma has a strong animal component, hoppy, a bit grassy and fruity. Lean mouthfeel; this malt flavor with the strong earthy/manure character is a bit cloying; not too sweet; quite strong bitterness, fitting in the picture, with a touch of dark berries in the final, and very light acidity.
Good beer, but this mix of flavors tends to be chaotic.
