“Neb” is a home brew recipe that has been scaled up with no consideration to economies of scale. Some say idiotic, and as an economist I would have to agree. Get fresh or die trying.

Saeglopur (483) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle from Saveur-Biere.com. Dark golden, hazy body, with a big, creamy, white head. Amazing, fresh, fruity, floral aroma of grapefruit, orange, apricot, lychee, passion fruit, resin, pine, caramel, biscuit. Taste is pretty much the same, but with more malt notes. Mouthfeel is medium, oily to creamy, with a medium carbonation and it finishes bitter, slightly dry, with lemon zest, resin, pine and with lots of the fruity notes mentioned. Brilliant! Definitely the best IPA from Scandinavia I’ve had so far! Fresh, crisp, with a very well hidden ABV and with a shining fruitiness. An almost perfect DIPA for those, like me, who prefer it smooth and very fruity!

HippyHop (298) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 2, 2014
Pours a murky orange (and once the head subsides, it could probably pass for orange Kool-Aid, based on appearance). That being said, everything else about this beer more than compensates for its underwhelming appearance. Nose is grapefruit, pine, orange (which seems to come through more as it warms), with a bit of bready malt in the background. Taste is a heavy, sweet malt with a huge hop hit of bitter grapefruit and pine on the finish. For the weird breed of hop head who likes a really heavy accompanying malt (like me) this is a great beer. I could drink 3-4 of these in an hour. Very dangerous.

blankboy (6307) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 25, 2014
[Bottle (330ml)] Pours a murky orange with a large lasting frothy off-white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma of pine and citrus hops, alcohol, some fruit, bready malt and grapefruit. Flavour of bready malt, pine hops, citrus hops, grapefruit, alcohol and a big bitter finish. A bit too boozy and the finish is a bit harsh. Medium bodied. Quite good but not great.

kevinsenn (1178) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle from LCBO. Pours hazy amber, with thin off-white head turning to lacing. Raisin, resin, pine, and light tropical fruit notes dominate the aroma. Taste is very well-balanced. Sweet raisin, orange, moving to a nice bitter finish. Smooth full body. Great!

yngwie (14338) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle. It’s an unclear, dark orange colored beer topped by a dense, light beige head. It’s lightly oxidized and cheesy on the nose, guess it’s been sitting on the shelves for a bit too long. Still it’s lovely, with resins, pine cones and oranges. some pale malt sweetness. Nice bitterness in the flavor, blending nicely with the sweetness. Orange peel, pine cones and resins. Lasting finish with a nice bitterness. Would like to taste this really fresh, it’s lovely even now that it’s getting old. 140724

33 cl. bottle from SB poured in to a Snifter. Hazy, amber-golden colour with a creamy, white head. Good looking. Fruity aroma with citrus, grass, grape, peach, sweet exotic fruits and caramel malts. Taste is bitter. Full body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes dry and bitter with pines, citrus and exotic fruits. Lovely DIPA.
