“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.

33cl bottle at home from Only Good Beer, Budapest. Nose is grass, citrus. Body is opalescent orange, head is big, white, rocky, fully lasting, excellent lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, honey, grass, tea, leaves, spices. Medium sweet, medium to heavy bitter, light citric sour. Finish is long lasting hoppy heavy bitter. Full body, soapy texture, soft carbonation. Not that easy, strong flavor, simple but very tasty, great one.

Impériale ipa de 8,5 % abv, brassée chez de Proef en Belgique. Un peu de malt de maïs dans la composition … on n’aime pas trop, mais des flocons d’avoine, là on est davantage preneur. Mon exemplaire était à 16 mois avant sa date. Couleur doré tendre, au léger voile de levure. Bulles très fines, en colonnes droites, sur les parois principalement. Mousse blanc cassé, assez crémeuse, stable à 2 mm. Arômes de blé, orge, agrumes, genièvre, pointe de girofle, coing. 1ère bouche soyeuse avec agrumes, orge, pointe de houblon vert. Arrière-bouche dense, consistante, à l’amertume travaillée. 2ème au très bel ensemble malt/agrumes/épices. Arrière-bouche toujours aussi dense, avec de nouvelles nuances dans l’amer. 3ème au très grand ensemble de plus en plus fondu. Arrière-bouche avec de nouvelles découvertes. Longueur qui travaille tous les registres, et donne de vraies nobles amertumes de haut vol. Jambes fines, denses, groupées, longues. Levure fine, un peu épicée, grande ligne. Alcool très bien, il officie au sein de l’ensemble en coordonnant le tout. Finale longue, complexe, avec des senteurs des îles. CONCLUSION : on doit bien s’amuser chez de Proef, en réalisant de pareilles bières pour la Suède … Il faudrait en fait les ajouter aux quelques ipa belges qui passent la rampe …

Desverger (8735) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 25, 2016
Bottle shared with the Mrs@Brewdog Clapham, London - (not sure how I missed this before) pours fuzzy orange with a white head and lacing. Sweet malty and fruity with some resonating fruity notes of tangerine, grapefruit, some pine needles, good malty backbone, caramel, toffee, solid hoppy bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cokemonkey11 (537) - - AUG 17, 2016
Brown bottle, 330ml. Pours medium tan pale amber, fully opaque with a thin tan head subsiding average slow. Scent is medium imperial yeast and some fruity hints. Taste is nice full range of hops and probably maximum IBU. Little bit chemical but great.

Bottle. At opening it’s just a wave of sweety fruity aroma. Big off white head. Strong tropical, citrus and grapefruit flavour. Sweet and medium to heavy beater. One of the best IIPA
