Ölbeat 055: Ruosniemen Diplomi-insinööri

Brewery: Ruosniemen Panimo
Country: Finland
Style: Imperial IPA
Abv: 8 %
Graduate engineer - stronger than the ordinary
What about the beer?
Colour is deep dark orange with big fluffy natural white head. Aroma has orange, lemon and malts. Taste bites first with heavy bitter hops and dry pine. Then sour grapefruit juice fills the mouth, and rough pine shows slowly up. Piny dryness and stinging bitterness just grow towards the end. Aftertaste is extremely dry and bitter.

That is one tasty and rough Double IPA. Heaviness of both hops and citrus feels balanced although the ride is fast and furious. The finish sandpapers the mouth with dryness. Very powerful brew.


The song was chosen half by the name of the beer and half or its rocky roughness. Since this was a heavyweight brew, it's good for any craftbeer drinker's engine:

From the 1991 album On Every Street, the song was written by Mark Knopfler.
