For our Finnish friends, we continued our Hello My Name Is series with this 8.2% double IPA, brewed with sea buckthorn, a tart and bitter berry found on the Finnish coastline.
We’ve combined the sea buckthorn’s tart character with a careful selection of hop flavours - good bittering hops early on, with our favourite dry hops for intense fruitiness on the nose. Bright, vibrant aromas of tangerine, mandarin and peach, with zesty hits of lime, envelop the nutty, caramel malt backbone. The intense fruitiness gives a jammy quality to the nose. On the palate is a warm biscuity sweetness, with tropical fruits in a supporting role to a huge grapefruit and orange bitterness. The sea buckthorn adds a tart, almost sour, dry finish, leaving the palate ready for the next mouthful.
Hello My Name is Päivi combines bitter, sweet and tart in perfect beery harmony.

Bottle - Slight cloudy orange colour, thin, long lasting white head. Aroma of grains, caramel, resinous hops, lemon zest. Taste is bittersweet, some grapefruit, red berries, peach, some caramel notes. Medium body, moderate carbonation, dry finish. The sourness in the end is not pleasant, but not so offensive.

hrabren (644) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 20, 2015
0.33 bottle from Hops beer shop, Trieste. Clear pale golden orange with medium white or off white head. Citrus aromas, flowery, peach, some alcohol, biscuit. Medium body, and surprisingly drinkable. Sweet with weak bitter finish. Lacks some hoppy confidence, maybe due to the fact it’s best before is already past. Otherwise good.

veceo (1118) - CROATIA - MAY 10, 2015
Hazy/cloudy deep amber/orange color, average sized white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, apricot, orange, malt. Taste of tropical fruits and oranges with strong berry kick (kinda like blueberries). Real fruit bomb. Medium to full body, lively carbonation. Very bitter, but nicely balanced. Light tartness. This "Hello my name is" series kicks ass.
