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.

Mango,pineapple, citrus, pine, floral hops and a hint of caramel in the aroma. Amber with a off-white head. Medium sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Medium to full body with a average to soft carbonation. Dry and slightly bitter finish. Overall a really nice Imperial IPA, lots of ripe fruit flavours and a hint of warming alcohol in the back.

Inbreak (2401) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - NOV 23, 2014
23.11 2014, 0,33l bottle @ home:
Small shortlasting head. Aroma is dry foresty, pine needles, moss, leafs, hops, soil, rubber, grass, light malts. Taste is slightly dry resiny, pine needles, bark, soil, leafs, hops, moss, grass, minerals, light malts, citrus peel. Longlasting bitterness, dry slightly harsh mouthfeel. Fair enough. As usual I wonder if they added the berries to the brew at all...

Fľaša. Tmavšia oranžová farba, biela pena. Vôňa krásne chmeľová, citrusová, najmä grapefuritová. Chuť plná, na začiatku jemne karamelová, citrusová, grapefruitová, v pozadí dlhá a úžasná horkosť. Chutné.
