Ölbeat 091: Prykmestar Double IPA

Brewery: Vakka-Suomen Panimo
Country: Finland
Style: Imperial IPA
Abv: 8,5 %
What about the beer?
Colour is dark brownish copper orange with a huge natural white head. Aroma has sweet citrus fruits and floral scents. Taste starts with tender sweet bitter bite. Sweet hoppy bitterness and a tasty mix of grapefruit and orange dominate. Near the finish the sweet fruits and malts get in front, and some piny dryness is added. Aftertaste has piny dryness, sweet bitterness and alcohol warmth.

This is not so hoppy bitter and grapefruit dominated Double IPA as they usually are. Smooth sweet and fruity flavours play ball. Tasty experience and excellent journey to the fruity side of hop-powered ales.


Instead of aggressively powerful rock genre, I took a dive to mellow rock. Without forgetting that the brew tastes powerful and alive. Since IPA's have been labeled as beers of warm seasons, the theme of the song is pretty close to ideal:

Don Henley: The Boys of Summer (YouTube)

From the 1984 album Building the Perfect Beast, the song was written by Don Henley and Mike Campbell.
