REVIEW: 2 beers by Ora Brewing

Ora Brewing of London sent a couple of little cans into us here at BeerCraft, and they looked quite interesting.  They were founded a few years ago in Modena, Italy, and like to brew modern craft beers with Italian ingredients...

Limoncello IPA

Ora Brewing Limoncello IPA

Limoncello is traditionally made in Italy, particularly the Sorrento and the Naples area, the lemons are real sharp with masses of flavour.

So this Limoncello IPA comes as no surprise when you get a good aroma of those zesty lemons during the pour.  We also get a good fluffy head, and the liquid is a nice, slightly cloudy gold colour.

 

The taste is pretty good, definitely a sour IPA, is it an IPA at all though, I felt it was more of an out and out sour!

Recommended, and a brewery we shall keep an eye on in the future.

Hazy Heart

Ora Brewing Hazy Heart Hazy Heart by Ora Brewing is a DDH, Double Dry Hopped, NE, New England, Pale Ale.  DDH NEPA!

 

And it's a good as well, loads of citrussy aroma's coming off of it, and a real good kick of the Citra and Mosaic hops, 2 classics used extensively in Pale Ale's and IPA's.

Hopefully Ora will move onto 440ml cans sometime soon, and if they do, and carry on making craft beer of this quality, expect to see them on the shelves at BeerCraft.

First smell after a kitchen can opening was very pungent floral scents with a feint hoppy background. Definitely got that classic pilsner taste to it with the hoppy feel, then an actual nice light and clean followup that carries through each sip. No big memorable flavours that stay on the tongue, but a decent enough drink to knock back.

First smell is just thick melted chocolate flowing out before that bourbon kick makes an appearance. My following excited swig didn't leave me disappointed as those smells were combined perfectly in my mouth before a light coffee edge showed up.

The following swig had a definite rush of those flavours and hops, but not as powerful as I'd expected, in fact quite a smooth delivery. As I went along there was definitely those vic secret and amarillo hops there, but more of constant buzz in the background.
