Brewski Red Robot DIPA

Brewery: Brewski
Country: Sweden
ABV: 7.5%
Style: American Double IPA
Other Notes: Double India Pale Ale. Only real fruit inside!

Brewer Description: (from bottle) Charming and cute as they are, the capabilities and intelligence of “emotional” robots are still very limited. They don’t have feelings and are simply programmed to detect emotions and respond accordingly. But things are set to change very rapidly and they just learned how to give robot hugs. So lets enjoy a hug from this little red robot with lots of love, passionfruit and pineapple.

Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 16th May 2019, ‘B6 robotbin’. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy yellow orange colour with a one finger white head that had decent retention and left some lacing.
Aroma: Pineapple, melon, mango and pine with hints of orange rind and zest.
Taste: Grapefruit and underripe fresh orange juice with touches of mango and pine resin.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This was quite good, but I didn’t really get any of the passionfruit or pineapple that was supposedly there in the taste. There was a lot more citrus that the expected tropical fruits.

Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 7th May 2019, ‘B11 brewskv’. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy dark orange (dark mango juice) colour with a big but delicate three finger white head that dissipated quickly while leaving only some sparse lacing.
Aroma: Fruity with raspberry first, followed by mango with hints of citrus zest.
Taste: Lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Slightly unripe mango, grapefruit rind and zest and hints of grass.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with lively moderate to high carbonation.
Overall: This was ok, but carbonation was probably a bit high. In addition, while I got raspberry in the aroma, I unfortunately pretty much didn’t get any in the taste.

Brewski x Mikkeller Magic Valley DIPA

Brewery: Brewski x Mikkeller ApS
Country: Sweden
ABV: 7.77%
Style: American Double IPA
Other Notes: Double IPA w/ Guava. Only real fruit inside!

Brewer Description: (from bottle) It’s the witching hour on a dark, moonless night. You’re huddled with friends around a campfire in the woods far from town, taking turns telling stories. Someone has just recounted a particularly eerie tale about an encounter with a ghost, insisting it was true. You sit quietly, staring into the flames, reluctant to let on that it actually made your skin crawl. Then someone in the shadows clears his throat and begins to speak: “did you hear the one about… the magic valley?”

Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 19th June 2019, ‘B8 janssons’. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy golden orange colour with a two finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly but left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Mango, pineapple, melon, lime and lemon with some herbal notes.
Taste: Lightly bitter, lime rind, lemon, herbal with hints of mango and pineapple.

Overall: This was ok, but maybe a bit too much herbal notes and that light alcohol booziness was perhaps a distraction.
