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 just tells you I'm an IPA with full fruity flavours bulking under the snout. The following swig just gives you an electric shock of powerful hops that are a real eye opener, then straight behind is that thick mouthfeel giving you tropical flavour. Each swig after packs a punch, but a more subtle peachy tone starts coming through to end the taste.

First smell is a solid coffee one, very thick and almost treacley. The following one is more of the same, with almost chewable coffee flavours coming into the mouth with a chocolate tint. Just a pure stout is this one, bit too strong personally for me, but I know I wouldn't be the prime audience. I can tell the full mouthfeel is just chocked full of fantastic ingredients, so any connoisseur should nab these while they're around...

First smell is strong raspberry that surges up your nose and offers that potential tartness. The following swig gives a nice load of raspberry on those hops that certainly made you realise it was a sour. Then, there was a really soft vanilla almost custard ending that finished the drink off in that 'ripple' dessert style.
