Breakfast Beer Tasting: Brewdog Hello My Name Is Ingrid

What better way to kick-off Friday morning than with a Double IPA? Because that is what we have here. The design of the beer is down to readers of the Swedish beer blog BeerSweden. Who is Ingrid? Well, I think the clue is in the description of it being a “Bergmanesque” beer. It all sounds very promising; Citra, Nelson Sauvin and Bramling Cross hops together with the addition of cloudberries. Which are those fruits you get at Ikea, I think.

It’s 330ml and being a DIPA, a not surprising 8.2%. It poured dark amber with good carbonation and a large off-white head. The aroma was quite pungent: pineapple to the fore and a little sweet malt just behind it. Taste wise, it was medium bodied and quite resinous. There’s a lot of grapefruit, gooseberry and dark berries with a solid malt backbone. It hides the alcohol pretty well but it peeks through occasionally to remind you to sip rather than gulp it down. The finish is a good blast of tart fruit. A tasty DIPA.
