COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
keg and bottled, special
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

330ml bottle from Appellation Wines, cheers Ash! Aromas, not surprisingly, of blueberries. Other tropical fruits and a hint of cereal in the background. Taste doesnt quite deliver on the expected masses of fruit, but is still good, finishing with a light bitterness, and not overpowering like some of the others in this series. Quite light bodied, surprisingly, and a short finish. Good.

Fin (10380) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2013
On tap at Brewdog, Shoreditch, Saturday 26th October 2013 Pours copper in colour to my eyes, but quite dark in here, good clarity with a snall white head. Robust malty and hoppy beer sweet but then a light almost casual dryness, like it is unintended. Full flavoured in mouth fruity sourness, alcohol sits quite heavily. A7 A4 T7 P3 Ov14 3.5

Tap at 23 Beerz. Sweet orange nose, milky, berries. Orange-gold color with a low, fine head. Pretty soft, sweet, and malty. Very fruity, berries and oranges. Soft and silky. A bit strange but original and tasty.

Draft @ Hoppy Loft. Orange portant sur le cuivre, col blanc. Arme offre de trs belles effluves de pin, profond bouquet sve avec un lger rtro-nasal portant sur le malt caramel. Palais est ici aussi ax sur le pin, malt, notes houblonnes assez lgres. Houblon rappelant des notes proches de Galaxy et Simcoe dcrivant le caractre de Mosaic. Le tout est assez huileux et franchement pas de traces de myrtilles. Ici je trouve le profil pin nettement plus prsent et dominant. Malt quant lui offre une belle palette caramel et un ct trs cossais - Brewdog.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2013 Thx! to Kraddel. 33 cl. bottle sampled. BBF 09/10/2014. Pale & clear golden, little head. Nose is pretty sweet for an IIPA, way too sweet even, sweet pine resin hops here mixed with quite a bit of dough, white sugar & caramel. There is quite a bit of hops here but it is all a bit oddly sweet. Taste is bitter pine resin mixed with white sugar, sweet dough, caramel, toffee, touch herbal, hay,... I is all sweet & oily. This is a basic & okay IIPA which is fine if they didnt charge a surplus because it has a lot of blueberries which I am not getting at all. It seems like the fruits fermented all out & made this stuff sweeter but other than that. If you put blueberry on something, I need to be able to taste it. This is my 3rd beer from the series & 3rd time I am not getting any fruit, I call this a rip-off honestly. It is an okay-ish IIPA & thus the score. Just for that, not keeping the promise in mind.

21/XII/13 - 33cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - BB: 9/X/14 (2013-1163)

Clear deep orange beer, irregular yellow head, little stable. Aroma: very piny, resinous, pineapple, sweet mango, bit sugary, honey, alcohol, ripe fruits. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: blueberry jam, fruity, some mango, a bit piny, sweet malts, honey. Aftertaste: pretty bitter, little piny, jam, dry hops, citrus, some grapefruit, reminds me of American barley wines (because of the jam flavours, which in this case are there because of the actual fruit in the beer, I know), medicinal bitter ending.

On tap at Mikkeller Bar, October 2013. Dark golden with a small white head. Aroma and taste of some herbs, fruit, malt, citrus, some alcohol. Not as fruity as expected. Still a descent beer.

Cuso (8561) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 2, 2014
Bottle from bier-deluxe.de. Amber color with medium white head. Strong aromatic hoppy aroma with tangerines, grapefruit, grapefruit zest, pines, spices. Taste, solid malty base followed by aromatic hops with tangerines, grapefruit, orange zest, pines, mint, touch of blueberries maybe (or I have a great imagination:) ). Long, strong hoppy finish. Really tasty beer.
