“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.

Not as good as I was hoping for. Lots of hype about it. It's good but not great. Quite bitter to the palate. Not a very full bodied IPA. Tried it but not going to go back in a hurry.

Slightly cloudy gold pour with a thin off-white head. Passionfruit, mango, caramel aromas dominate right out of the bottle. Taste is sweet caramel, mango, passionfruit, pine, orange, with a nice sweet but slightly bitter finish. Like it a lot

AirForceHops (4067) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle purchased at 7-11 Kittery ME, sat in my fridge a tad longer then I wanted but still nice. Cloudy gold with some lasting head. Aroma has a real nice level of fruit, mild danky pine, earth and malt.

Flavor is much like the aroma with a soft carbonation level and medium in body. The balance is really nice, even after sitting for server weeks it still has a nice level of hops and bitterness and doesn’t become to sweet from the malts used. Ok, ok... A touch sweet but not overly so. Texture becomes dry with a nice light dank hint. Highly drinkable

Drucken ur Pensmugg. Vacker och något grumlig kopparfärg. Sköljer smidigt över läpparna. Lekfull smak som balanserar väl mellan sötma och beska. Enda minuset - den gick ner för anabbt.

minutemat (2006) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2015
330ml bottle @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours a hazy gold with good white head. Aroma is big and fruity with mandarin & grapefruit. Taste continues with a smooth maltiness and vibrant tropical elements. Very decent Imperial IPA.

Crille (89) - Varberg, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2015
Appearance: Hazy golden orange with a white head.

Aroma: Lots of citrus, grapefruit, grass and some earthy aromas.

Taste: More citrus. Malty and caramel comes to mind. And don’t forget the nice hop attack.

Palate: Full bodied beer, with lively carbonation level.

Overall: This is gold in a bottle. So drinkable, and it’s 8,5%!! Fantastic if you like the citrus/grapefruit style beer, if you don’t, to bad…

ben4321 (4449) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Location: 12 oz bottle, not sure where from, 2/19/15

Aroma: It has a very nice fruity hop aroma with citrus rind, grapefruit, and tropical fruit
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy orange color with a clean, sheeting white head and fairly heavy lace
Flavor: Tastes of sweet and fruity flavors with a good balance from the hop bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, smooth, average carbonation, and a clear dry finish
Overall Impression: I found this one to be quite nice. It’s got a big fruity flavor that elands both sweetness and bitterness to the beer nicely. The other flavor components play second fiddle, but do so in an excellent "supporting role" way. It is Oscar season after all. JK Simmons knows what I’m talking about.
