Beer review: Ørbæk IPA

And now for a certified organic IPA from Denmark. I have yet to have an organic beer that I have really enjoyed, so lets hops this will be a first!

Hazy dark orange color with a big head. The head has good retention and leaves nice lacing on the glass.

Aroma

Faint hoppy aroma with some malty sweetness. I’m getting some citrus notes as well as a small hint of peach.

Flavor

The beer has a flowery hoppy aroma with a malty backbone. I’m getting mostly oranges and tropical fruits.

The body is surprisingly thin.

Finish

Short and gentle finish which is slightly bitter up front. I’m also getting some earthy hints.

Rating

A very light and crisp beer. I have had a lot of English IPA’s with a stronger aroma and flavor profile than this, and the thin body made it less enjoyable. Score: 2.4/5.

Disclaimer: I received this bottle from Interbev, the Norwegian importer of Ørbæk.

    I tried this one this weekend. I agree in much of the review, but I could not feel any citrus, neither orange or other fruits. It was pretty flat to me. Maybe it was too cold? Belive it was 5-6 C. It ought to be at least 8-10 C in temperature to catch the flavors.
