COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“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.

Pours brown/orange hazy with a small white head. Nose of citrus dominated by pineapple. Flavors are similar lots of pineapple and fruit flavors. Bitterness is lite and good balanced. Long sweet citric finish :)

jgb9348 (5320) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Very slightly hazy light copper and amber body with a thinnish, soapy two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of pine, spruce, grass and some hybrid hops with a nice malt nose and a hint of sugars. Medium-bodied; Some hop flavours at first with a lot of grass, earth, pine, flowers and a little bit of light sweetness from fruit. Aftertaste is relatively simple and not showing too much except some light caramel malt and some minor hops - no real bitterness here. Overall, a pretty standard Imperial IPA at best with decent flavours, but no depth, no complexity and nothing outstanding; Definitely below expectations and in the price range (it IS from sweden/belgium) definitely not worthwhile to find/buy/store at all - try something better from here in America (assuming you live here). I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from Whole Foods in New York (Bowery), New York on 05-December-2015 for US$5,99 sampled at home in Washington on 15-January-2016.

kajser27 (861) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 10, 2016
Hazy, amber colored, medium- white frothy head, good lacing and lasting. Aroma is of some caramel malt, strong pine and citrus lemony hops. Taste is medium sweet caramel malt background, strong pine and citrus hoppy aroma with some tropical fruits, medium+ bitterness, very dry finish and lasting after, alcohol very well hidden. Medium+ bodied, soft carbonation, oily. Excellent, not as sweet as some DIPAs and hoppier than most!

pictoman (842) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 6, 2016
Poured from 33cl bottle [24/06/15]. Light-medium orangey yellow with full off-white head. Very tropical citrus hops and malt aroma. Lighter citrusy hops with some subtle funk and sweet caramel taste. Fuller bodied, medium bitterness.

Renobob (1462) - Besançon, FRANCE - JAN 2, 2016
Bue à la pression. Blonde légèrement trouble. Nez houblon alcool. Au palais l'équilibre houblon/malt est parfait. Grosse corpulence avec bon hit d'alcool. Superbe et délicieuse.

Bawelt (265) - Lyon, FRANCE - DEC 30, 2015
Un modèle du genre. Pas de surprises ou de grande complexité mais techniquement parfaite. Le nez est porté sur les fruits tropicaux (mangue et papaye) et des notes très herbales. La bouche montre pas mal d’amertume et de notes vertes en longueur. L’attaque est modérée et porte quelques fruits rouges. Très bel équilibre.

PhillyCraft (4763) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2015
Bottle, pours hazy brown gold with small to medium white head. Smell is caramel malt, sugar, orange and resinous pine. Flavor is most of the same with a fair bit of sweetness and sugar but still some dank hops coming through. Medium mouthfeel. Overall, it was too sweet and hot for me.

Guruhso (111) - DENMARK - DEC 20, 2015
Bottle. Hazy golden with white head. Hoppy aroma of citrus, grapefruit and bitter orange-peel. Body is medium and texture is juicy. Low soft carbonation. Flavours start sweet but turns into a very bitter lasting finish.
