“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.

OOKPIKABLE (86) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2014
Pours golden with dense white head. Aroma of citrus, pine and bubblegum. Tastes of the same, but overlaid with a not totally pleasant boozy bitterness. A bit too boozy for my taste.

Helt okej men så god som folk säger att den är, är den faktiskt inte. Ganska billig dock ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheJester (1873) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2014
330 mL bottle. (Best before 05/02/16 - on the cap! Great idea!) Nice pour - hazy orange brown with a big, sticky, almost-white head. Big aroma Has mostly pine, but there is some lemon in there as well. There is nothing about the flavour that really stands out, or makes this beer stand out as an IIPA. However, it is simply and solidly constructed, with everything in the right place and no flaws.

Pours a hazy gold with a small white ring. Aroma is citrus hops and grains. Taste is a great balance of intense citrus hops with grains. Superb.

Saeglopur (327) - 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 (107) - 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 (6046) - 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.
