COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg & Bottle, Specially brewed by BrewDogs Swedish importer at BrewDog, exclusivly for Sweden.
A double IPA with Cloudberries added to the conditioning tank. So just who is Ingrid? Perhaps shes a reference to the Swedish silver screen icon or maybe its the line seemingly spoken by every other Swedish actress in films from the 60s and 70s (we know you know the ones were 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 beers 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.

KnutAlbert (6740) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2013
Another IPA from BrewDog, as always a fine blend of malt and crisp hops, not for sisises. Im afraid the cloudberries are well hidden beneath the hops.

McTapps (6623) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - APR 27, 2015
Vintage bottle from trade with siranselm - many thanks, Marcus! The beer has got a hazy orange-amber colour with a steady, low head and smooth body. Aroma of citrus, hops and pine. Taste of fresh hops, mandarinas, citric, pine, herbs and light unripe berries. Dry finish with a gentle bitterness. Fruity and hoppy. Absolutely delicious and quaffable. Enjoyed it a lot.

Appearance: 5/5 Hazy golden-orange with a reddish tint. Big fluffy dirty white head. Looks appealing, I like that its 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, Im surprised as I didnt 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. Its also quite sweet with a rich malty body. The bitterness isnt very strong or aggressive but its 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. Its got a very pleasant fruity hoppy flavour and the cloud berries are definitely there. However they arent too overpowering, its 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 wasnt a failure, I see it as inspiration to attempt my Chocolate Cherry Stout again :)

ekstedt (6578) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2011 Bottle (33 cl) from Systembolaget. Clear amber, medium off-white head. Fantastic, luxorious tropcial fruit hop aroma, with just a hint of cloudberries (not sure I would have picked that one out unless I knew about it beforehand). Some cookiesh malt aroma in the background. Medium bodied with creamy texture and soft carbonation. Quite sweet, but a massive bitterness saves the day. Still, I would have preferred it less sweet.

Die gute Ingrid hat wirklich frwahr etwas. Rund und mit einer gewissen Milde gesegnet, die vor Ananas und milden Zitrusfrchten nur so strotzt. Daneben eine gewisse Blumigkeit, whrend es zum Ende hin herber und strker wird. Milde Bitterkeit im Abschluss nebst ein bisschen Hopfen aus Belgien. War ne feine Sache.

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 doesnt 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!
