“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.

Przylus (378) - Warszawa, POLAND - JAN 15, 2015
Aromat NIESAMOWITY! Białe i żółte, słodkie, tropikalne owoce (głownie lychee i mango) plus różowy grejpfrut. Wszystko tak cudownie skomponowane i intensywne, że mógłbym wąchać to piwo przez cały czas. Barwa złota, lekko mętne. Piana średnio pęcherzykowa, wysoka, po chwili opada do niskiej i trzyma się. W smaku różowy i biały grejpfrut, trochę mango, ogólnie dosyć wodniste. Nie ma tej intensywności, co w aromacie. Niezła, grejpfrutowa goryczka.

Darwenus (612) - Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2015
The best beer I have had in months. This is everything I hope for in an IPA, and it compares favorably to Green Flash’s Palate Wrecker and my favorite Stone Brewery offerings. Nebuchadnezzar pours a somewhat hazy tangerine color with a lot of foam. The aroma is very strong, pungent citrus. Pineapple. Lemongrass. The aroma indicates no real balance in the flavor, and the taste is blissfully, brutally bitter. There is a little bit of cereal malt on the front of the tongue, but it doesn’t last long. Sledgehammer herbal and citrus hops hit on the swallow, and the bitter twist in the finish is clean and bright. Not the first hint of the 8.5% IPA in the bouquet or on the tongue. This is as imperial as imperial gets.

Hopmaestro (398) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 13, 2015
Big smell from tangerines, grapefruit, pineapple and oranges. The taste is divine and this is a true hop grenade. Big, hoppy citrus/lemon grass taste with a medium body and a long bitter finish.

BVery (7598) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Bottle. Rich golden-orange pour with a white head. Bold citrus / tropical fruit, but more pungent than juicy or sweet. Sharp hop bite with a nice finish. Good stuff.

heavy (2270) - Split, CROATIA - JAN 10, 2015
Aug ’14. A 0.33 l bottle from Systembolaget, Upplands Väsby. It poured hazy golden body with medium sized head. Really nice orange and other citrus hop aroma counterbalanced with sweet overripe tropical fruit and biscuit malt. Unfortunately, some cooked cabbage, too, no matter it was a fresh bottle. Flavor was bitter, quite hoppy but also malty a lot. Herbal and citrusy with lot of biscuit, fruity, vanilla and bread malt. Intense, its strength was absolutely felt, although not in bare raw alcoholic form, rather as warming of its full body towards the finish. Another excellent Swedish double IPA although pretentiously I might have hoped it to be at the whole next level.

Very nicely done. Well blended with just the right amount of booze and quite a lot of batteriets.

mabel (7059) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2014
[6982-20141213] 11.2floz bottle. Fragrant orange pine hops and resinous fruit aroma. Slightly hazy, bright orange body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Bitter toasted bread and orange citrus pine hops flavour with a lingering bitter lemon wedge. Medium body has a nice bitterness. Great bitter balance, lovely brew. (8/4/8/5/16) 4.1
Overheard: "Where’d you get it?" "The LCBO... I almost said the fridge."

Benfi (631) - DENMARK - DEC 30, 2014
Hazy orange/golden. Small head. Aroma of tropical fruits. Taste is well balanced and quite hoppy, but not that bitter, and tropical fruits.

konungen (131) - - DEC 29, 2014
Grumlig guld/orange med vitt skum. Doft av frisk fruktighet med bla ananas och citrus. Smaken är god i samma friska anda med en bra lång beska, lite sötma och aning av alkohol. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MarkoNm (1185) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - DEC 29, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy golden color, topped with a perfect white head, solid and very nice retention. Citrusy aroma, great, some other fruits. Taste starts fruity but immediately you’re confronted by very decent hoppy bitterness. Some left in the aftertaste. Just great.
