3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Vika at home
Deep red wine red, big tanned head. Smells of blackberries, some citrus zests, some roasted malts. Taste gently of roasted malts, medium sweet, some grain, berries, dark fruits and yeast notes. Finish has nice medium to heavy bitterness, nice hops, quite strict, not very fruity but i find resins and grass. Medium to full body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Totally this is a bit out of style to me, still it’s nice and very drinkable. The body as a bit weak and watery for an IPA

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50 cl bottle. Pours amber with a small head. Aroma is grassy hoppiness, dishwashing soap (sulfo), bland caramel, pretty fucken far from an IPA, not hoppy at all. Taste is a bit bitter, caramel malts, grass, astringet hops. Wow, this really is a bad IPA. This goes out to all gypsy brewers: please refrain from brewing at Ørbæk, they suck at brewing.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 500ml bottle on 27/5/2012. Pours a cloudy dark amber, with a small head. Has a moderate aroma of dark fruit and mild hops. Flavour wise, it’s got lots of caramel malt and a good dose of fruity hops. This is an enjoyable, slightly different, though relatively subtle IPA
