AF Brew Eat The Dust! DDH Citra

Brewery: AF Brew
Country: Russia
ABV: 8%
Style: New England / Hazy Double IPA
Other Notes: Double IPA DDH Citra

Brewer Description: (from description on ratebeer) Eat the Dust! is a new round in our ‘haze craze and juicy race’. It’s a DDH all-Citra, and nothing but 20 g/l of pellets and 3 g/l of lupulin powder literally smuggled into Russia. You can’t get further into the hops after all that.

Intro: A 500ml can, canned on 14th October 2019. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A very hazy straw yellow colour with a three finger white head that had great retention and left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Juicy, citrus, orange, lemon zest and pith, with a good smack of tropical pineapple and mango at the end.
Taste: Like the aroma, juicy, citrus, mandarin, orange peel, lemon zest and pith, light bitterness with tropical mango and pineapple on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This was enjoyable, better than Mosaic and Simcoe in my opinion although admittedly this is two or three weeks fresher. Good juicy citrus and tropical fruits in the aroma and taste.

Lervig Supersonic

Brewery: Lervig Aktiebryggeri
Country: Norway
ABV: 8.5%
Style: New England / Hazy Double IPA
Other Notes: 35 IBUs. Double dry-hopped IPA. Hops – Citra, Enigma, Amarillo and Simcoe

Brewer Description: (from Lervig website) We are loving our juicy IPA’s these days and apparently so are our customers. We wanted to go more than big, we went supersonic with a shit load of citra hops – we also included simcoe, amerillo and enigma – but the main hop is citra. We kept the malt bill simple to give great body but good drinkability at 8,5% alc. Wheat and oats to get the smooth juicy flavour and mouthfeel. This one
is all about the hops, it’s a super tropical hoppy explosion that breaks the hopwave. Think of it as mach 3 for hopped IPA’s!

Intro: A 500ml can, canned on 3rd September 2019 and with a best before date of 3rd June 2020. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy orange colour with a two finger white head that had decent retention and left lots of nice lacing.
Aroma: Citrusy orange, dank, onion, pine, slightly doughy, with hints of tropical mango and papaya.
Taste: Moderately sweet, biscuit malt, dank, fruity, tropical, mango, papaya, melon, kiwi, citrus zest and pith, orange, lightly bitter and spicy finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with moderate to soft carbonation.
Overall: Good sweet and bitter balance but for a NEDIPA I’d prefer more tropical fruit and less malt and dankness.

Lervig Liquid Sex Robot

Brewery: Lervig Aktiebryggeri
Country: Norway
ABV: 7.9%
Style: New England / Hazy Double IPA
Other Notes: 35 IBUs

Brewer Description: (from Lervig website) Liquid Sex Robot is our DIPA that we double dry-humped with our favourite hops (Mosaic, Citra, Azacca and Ekuanot) for super tropical fruit flavours and low bitterness. We used Golden Promise, oats and wheat to give this beer the sexiest of bodies and a smooth, creamy head. We may as well be living in the future, because this is an orgasm in a can.
