Teku glass
A: Orange amber, little hazy. Short lasting, small white head. Low lacing.

S: Medium aroma of floral and herbal tea notes along with some tropical fruits in the background. Berry and piney notes in the backgrouns. Alcohol quite noticable - it mixes together with red berries.

T: In the beginning it starts with medium floral and herbal flavors. Than some herbal tea notes. From the middle you can taste medium bitterness together with some sweet flavors. In general hops flavors are not very noticable.

M: Medium body. Semi-dry with sweet finish. Smooth texture. Mild carbonation. Quite drinkable. Light warming character.

O: Comparing to the rest of "Hello my name is...." series this is very average beer. Ok it's drinkable, but could be more hoppy in taste and aroma.

330ml Bottle from Brewdog.com:
Orange amber with a thumb-sized, bubbly head that is slightly off-white slowly recedes to leave a thin lacing on top.

Sweet with some tropical notes but it is the floral and herbal ones that start to take over after the initial burst of fruit. There is some lingonberries & pine hops as well; not as many as I would have expected or liked though.

Sweet floral notes, some herbal ones too and a lot of berries, some sweet fruits & faint hops which I wasn't expecting consider the beer is a double IPA. A few sweet malts make an appearance too.

Smooth with a medium body & some sweetness throughout. There is a slight citrus tang & hints of spice with a little alcohol as well but not a lot. It was pretty easy drinking with a warming, boozy feel towards the end.

Fairly disappointing & definitely not up to the standard of the previous two beers in this Brewdog Hello My Name Is... series. The beer was still drinkable and had a nice feel to it but the taste wasn't much like a double IPA and wasn't all that exciting or bitter either.

A 330ml bottle with a BB of June 2014. Acquired recently from the Brewdog online shop. A double IPA with added lingonberries to give it a Scandinavian twist. Possibly named after the Queen of Norway....

Poured into a Duvel tulip. A warm orange-amber hue with slight haze and low carbonation. Yields a decent head of creamy white foam that lasts for a few minutes before subsiding to a patchy surface layer. Some lacing. Aroma of intense hops with notes of pine, grapefruit and citrus, underpinned by caramel malt, stewed hops and a subtle berry hint that I presume is the lingonberry. A faint harshness develops in the background after a while.

Tastes of plentiful aromatic hops with a powerful bitter finish. Notes of grapefruit, orange peel, citrus, pine resin, stewed hops, caramel malt, subtle berries and mild earthy yeast. Well-attenuated, followed by a strident bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with hop oils teasing the palate. Somewhat textureless and lacking in carbonation, but decent body. Rather astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of bitter aromatic hops, faint lingonberry and a twinge of caramel.

Pretty good - a solid DIPA with something extra. It looks alright, though the carbonation has gone missing. Aroma and flavour are lovely; tons of hops and subtle lingonberry lingering in the background, smoothered and cocooned by hop notes. Body is OK - more CO2 needed. A pleasant berry/hop combination with plenty of charisma. Worth sampling if you have the chance.

Probably my favourite beer that I have tried this year. The bottle design is accompanied by an amusing story about the name and why in certain locations (Norway) it's name will be "Hello My Name is Censored".

This is a delicious and smooth American Double IPA infused with Lingonberries (i'm not entirely sure what they are either but they do add an interesting note to this beer).

My only criticism would be (and this seems to affect all of Brewdog's offerings) would be that the alcohol content is almost inconsistent i.e. it seems to have a stronger kick of alcohol at the bottom of the bottle.

I would definitely recommend.
