Brewski Herr Hemlig 2.0

Brewery: Brewski
Country: Sweden
ABV: 5.6%
Style: American IPA
Other Notes: India Pale Ale. Keep it real, no additives inside!

Brewer Description: (from bottle) As we have said before.. That your first beers will always carry a special place in your heart. Herr Hemlig was our first commercial non-fruit beer. First launched in 2015. We couldn’t keep up with supply at the moment due to other success stories. So we are glad to re-introduce this beer, upgraded with all our knowledge the last years into a refined Herr Hemlig 2.0. We hope you will enjoy this simple, but yet tasty India Pale Ale!

Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 2nd May 2019, ‘B58 beerfest’. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy straw yellow colour with a slightly more than one finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly and left pretty much no lacing.
Aroma: Grapefruit, citrus rind, passionfruit and mango with a hint of grass and pine.
Taste: Orange flesh, grapefruit rind, pine, light bitterness and a slight herbal taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: An easy drinking IPA, but I’m not getting much passionfruit, especially in the taste, which was fruity, but more citrus like.

Brewski Three Fourteen IPA

Brewery: Brewski
Country: Sweden
ABV: 5.9%
Style: American IPA
Other Notes: India Pale Ale. Keep it real!

Brewer Description: (from bottle) There are lots of stories out there about how things came to exist. Some claim a long, long time ago a dude named Adam was breathed into life, eventually met a chick called Eve, there was a devious serpent involved at some point, sinning became a thing and we were cursed by our creator after eating hops from a tree. We are not sure that’s entirely accurate, but we do like the idea of making things from scratch, blowing air on them and chewing from the hop-tree of life. And if drinking this fruity IPA is questionably sinful, we promise not to hold it against you.
