330 ml bottle, at Café Sara, Oslo. ABV is 8.2%. Orange-pinkish colour, off-white head. Aroma of fruity hops, just a hint of blueberries. Very fruity and quite sweet flavour - sweet malts, fruity hops and blueberries.

330ml bottle from Brewdog Online Shop:
Deep amber with a 1.5cm foamy, white head that reduces slightly initially then holds well after that.

Sweet tropical fruit smells with quite a lot of hops & plenty of pine notes as well, there is some citrus as well and to a lesser extent some grapefruit as well. I could detect some berries coming through as well.

Sweet with a lot of bitterness and some citrus plus a plenty of hops as well. Sweeter than the nose with the blueberries making themselves more known too. Tropical fruits with pineapple, some apricot and mango all feature & it's rounded of with a faint touch of caramel.

Smooth, sweet and very bitter with a medium body and light medium carbonation. The beers alcohol content is well hidden although a few hints come through.

A definite improvement from the last in the series I tried from Brewdog, Hello My Name Is Mette Marit although this one wasn't exactly a classic either. This one was very sweet with plenty of tropical notes and some blueberries as well but it seemed to be missing that something special and wasn't up there with the top double IPA's that I've tried.

Very fruity, smooth and drinkable double IPA, especially considering the alcohol content.

aroma: pine, citrus, caramel, melon, berries and grapefruit

taste: pine, citrus, melon, berries, orange peel and grapefruit supported by a good malt backbone - fruity and delicious.

excellent DIPA but didn't pick up much of the blueberries that were added to the brew. Anyway, well balanced, fruity and smooth.

On-tap. Pint glass enjoyed @ L´Espumossa (Barcelona). Orange color, chill haze appearance. Off-white foam, close & sticky crown, good retention. Aroma profile displays intense pine, resins, toasted notes with pineapple & ripe apricot. Sweet mild toasted malt upfront is swept out by resinous hops. Medium to full body. Moderate carbonation. Oily texture. Spicy & slight sparkling in the middle. Dry sweet/low bitter finish. Fruity aftertaste.

Pours deep amber with a large head.
Nose shows fruity hops, sweet crystal malt, passion fruit, lychee and pear.
Fruity flavours too, but this time the blueberry comes into play in a subtle way. Lots more sweet clean malt in true Brewdog fashion followed by an aggressive, piny bitterness.
Body feels a little thick.

@ Tasty Beverage

Mostly clear amber color with a tall, fat white head. There's certainly some blueberries in the aroma along with other berries, apricots, and grapefruit...everything is coated with a slick, oily hop character. A little less from the blueberries in the flavor, but they're still there in more of a sweet pie-like manner. Oily, resinous hops and ripe tropical fruit. Medium bodied, moderately bitter, and sticky. There's a sort of creaminess that fluffs up the body a tad and a slight acidity to dry things out. A neat, interesting beer here...the blueberry plays very nicely with the Mosaic and everything comes together smoothly with no heat or overbearing sweetness.
