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.

emacgee (3954) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 28, 2014
Cloudy light lemon rind yellow with one finger of tight white head. Nose is super citrusy with lots of mandarin orange and cracked pepper. Lemon rind and a slight herbal character shows as well. Brett contributes to an almost over ripe citrus note. Dry and peppery/spicy with some over ripe orange and soft floral notes. Light bodied and dry with a peppery finish.

tfredvik (1031) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 28, 2014
Cloudy medium orange body with an off-white, long-lived head. Good lacing. Strong and heavy hoppy aroma of grapefruit and tropical fruits (mango). Caramel and dry pepper in the back. Strong flavour that follow the aroma, with the addition of resinous notes in the long-lasting, heavy bitter finish. The initial taste is a bit less sweet than many DIPAs, and the texture and especially the finish is unusually dry and pepper-ish for the style. Medium body, soft to moderate carbonation. A rock solid double IPA, although I prefer them sweeter and less dry.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 20 months before BB date, from Systembolaget Gårda, Göteborg]

ramboraffe (297) - SWEDEN - APR 26, 2014
UPDATED: APR 28, 2014 Bottle at bar kino. Orange hazy with white head. Smell is floral citrus hops. Taste is medium bitter for the type with caramel finish and some lingering hop bitterness in the end. Smooth.

daje (2033) - NORWAY - APR 26, 2014
Bottle at Øltorget, february 25th 2014. Unclear golden body, low white head. Rich hoppy aroma of citrus, grass and pine, taste is slightly sweet caramel with strong piney hops and a late bitterness balancing it out, pretty maltforward aftertaste with a sweet candy taste. A bit different imperial ipa, enjoyable.

Really interesting aroma. Quite hoppy and well rounded. Smells like a farmyard. Slightly cloudy golden amber colour with a subtle head. Very strong pungent hoppy taste. Not a favourite. Not for me but dedicated to one of my favourite bar men. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flaska från systembolaget. Perfekt nivå av beska. Doftar citrus och humle, smakar detsamma men utan att.citrus tar över. Intressant färg. Väldigt bra om än inte så lyrisk som andra.

superspak (2408) - Michigan, USA - APR 21, 2014
330 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 6/24/2015. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy orange amber color with a 2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great complexity of bright citrus/tropical/grassy hops and light-moderate malt balance; with great strength. Taste of huge grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity of bright citrus/tropical/grassy hops with moderate malt sweetness; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a slightly creamy, smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent DIPA. All around great complexity of bright citrus/tropical/grassy hops and moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

Benderone (27) - FRANCE - APR 21, 2014
Bouteille 33cl servie dans un verre teku. Belle robe orangée, limpide avec un joli col de mousse blanche, abondante et stable. Nez sur les agumes et les fruits exotiques, ananas notament. Bonne effervescence. Au palais, beaucoup de corps, grosse amertume astringeante, l’attaque évoque le tabac, quelques notes biscuitées, finale très sèche. Bien équilibrée. Très belle découverte!

TBone (12323) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 18, 2014
Bottled 330ml (Beer Hunters)
Hazy orange color, good cloudy white head, some lace. Grapefruit, citrus, gooseberries in the nose. Citrus, gooseberries, some fruityness. Good beer, but lacks a final touch for being really excellent.

Vighals (952) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - APR 14, 2014
Tåkete orangebrun i fargen med offwhite skum. Heftig humlelukt, men litt appelsin kommer igjennom. Humlebitterheten dominerer også klart smaken. Elsker den kraftige bitterheten i lukt og smak, men savner andre smaker. Lang ettersmak
