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.

330ml bottl efrom the lcbo. Hazy orange pour, medium off white head that dissipates quickly. Quite a pungent aroma of green, wet, resinous hops. Lots of citrus and about the same amount of pine notes, but as it warms the caramel malts take over. There is that odd soapy note that i get now and then in dipas, not sure what that is. High bitterness, sweet, malty, candied citrus peel finish. This isnt as fresh as it could be. Its nice, but not great.

330 ml bottle from the LCBO. Best before 05.02.15. Pours a hazy peachy yellow with a thin creamy white head, doesn’t last long. Smells like citrus, peaches, pineapple, very fruity and a bit of bread malt. Assertive bitterness, especially on the first sip. Tastes is strong, pine with almost a burnt orange taste. Nice bitter finish. Alcohol is very well hidden.

shaynsawchuk (435) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2014
330ml bottle. Pours hazy amber with a thick white cap. A medley of tropical fruit on the nose with some light caramel tones and layers of dank, resinous hops. Very earthy and herbal. Surprisingly light bodied with average carbonation. Dry with a big bitter finale. Seems slightly flat or stale, not oxidized just not all that bright or flavorful--I must be in the die trying category.

Bottle. Golden with white head. Aroma of pine, orange, grass, almost minty note. Taste of alcohol, caramel, pine and orange. Quite bitter and a bit hot.

rejtable (1236) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 15, 2014
Pours light orange with limited head and minimal lacing. Nose is quite nice lots of fruity and pine notes. Flavours a bit more quiet, tropical fruit, pine, some lemon maybe. Tastes medium bitter light/med sweet. Full somewhat sticky body with lively carbonation. Bit of an alcohol burn in the finish as wel.

radiomgb (2227) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 15, 2014
330ml bottle from the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario. Cloudy orange in colour with a thin but lasting white head, good lacing. The aroma is of pineapples, peaches, pine and citrus. The flavour is of pine, some pepper, citrus and tropical fruits. Big bitter mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, hoppy and bitter. A big hop forward DIPA.

GregClow (2858) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 14, 2014
Bottle from LCBO. Hazy peachy-gold with a nice white head. Aggressively hoppy aroma that leans heavily towards tropical fruit notes - pineapple, papaya, lychee - along with pine resin, pepper, and some alcohol dryness. Flavour is... well, to be honest, somewhat disappointing after the fantastic aroma. The hops are sharp and not well integrated, with bitter orange pith and pine sap being the dominant players, pushing the sweeter and more pleasant tropical notes to the background. And the finish gets quite hot and boozy as it warms, making it a bit of a chore to finish the glass. Maybe I got a dud bottle, but I’m finding it hard to see - and taste - what all the fuss is about.

Alpha10 (315) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 14, 2014
2014/07/14 - Pours a hazy, orange/honey colour with a thick, rocky, off white head that lingers and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is pine, citrus, mango and spicy hops. Taste is similar to nose; spicy hops, pine, citrus, mango and a touch of biscuit. Low sweetness with medium bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and sticky with biting carbonation and a crisp, drying finish. Very enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2014
Pale golden pour with a thin white head. The nose is tropical and slightly peppery/earthy. It’s got a little bit of a pungency that I kind of recall from Norrebro back in the day. Some pineapple and a touch of garlic that I could probably do without. Mild sweetness but is dominated by resinous/earthy notes rather than bright aromatics. Not sure how it’s been handled but there is a bit of mintiness on the back as well. It finishes fairly dry with an assertive lingering bitterness. Spicy and dank on the finish. Okay - but is showing some age.
