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.

yngwie (14762) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2015
Bottle. A lightly hazy one, golden in color and with a dense, finger-thick off-white head. The aroma is quite fruity, with pine cones, some alcohol notes and a touch of sugary malts. It’s full-bodied, with a pleasant carbonation level. Nice bitterness, with peaches, pine cones, citrus zest and a touch of caramel malts. Bready hints towards the finish. Not bad at all this one, but I sure had better beers from Brewdog. 150314
