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.

Awards: Gold medal and "Best of Show" at the Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival 2012. Best Swedish Beer 2013 according to ratebeer. Best Swedish Beer 2012 according to the readers of Allt om Öl. Best Swedish Beer according to beersweden.forum. On the list of 30 great IPAs to drink before you die at http://firstwefeast.com/drink/30-great-ipas-to-drink-before-you-die/

Seriously impressed with this. Being in the southwest, I get all kinds of awesome West Coast IPAs and some midwest IPAs and this is possibly the best hoppy European beer I’ve had. Not the best hoppy beer I’ve ever had, but damn good. Smells great, looks great, tastes great... What more do you need? Dig the label, too.

MarkoNm (785) - 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.

SB Oskarshamn, flaska (what else..). Trodde den skulle dött SBs flaskdöd men inte. Annanas och friskhet dominerar aromen. Bra co2syra. Fin kontrast mot Dugged djiit hehehe. Men så j..a bra IPA. Bör drickas i mass en varm sommarkväll. Eller på julafton.

Excellent imperial with heavy citrus, flowery notes, notable but balanced bitterness and just great overall. A shame about the high alcohol volume since I'd like to down a lot of these...

jercraigs (8091) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2014
2014-12-13. Hazy bright orange body with a nice white head and a bit of lace. 3+ Aroma is moderately alcoholic, pithy orange and tangerine citrus notes. Flavour is similar, moderate alcohol throughout, good amount of hoppy bitterness with similar pithy tangerine and citrus seed hop character, light lemon peel undercurrent. Lingering bitterness in the finish. Average plus bodied palate, good carbonation. Just a touch more oomph to the citrus, or a touch less heat to the alcohol would bring it more in balance but it is rather tasty as it is. Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto

WilleLW (182) - Lund, SWEDEN - DEC 16, 2014
Hazy golden colour with a large head. Aroma of hops, grass and citrus together with a slight aroma of toffee, something sweet and a dash of burnt sugar. Taste with a distinct hop bitterness with a hint of burnt sugar. Dry aftertaste of grass and citrus. Full body with a long after-taste.

FunkyF (173) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2014
Flaska från SB. Gyllengul med vitt skum. Humlig doft med tydliga grapetoner. Lätt torr smak med lite fruktighet och rejäl efterbeska. Den var bättre förr.
