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.

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.

minutemat (1941) - Ford, 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 (4318) - 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.

Tstamba (377) - Maryland, USA - FEB 7, 2015
On tap at Max's . Hazy orange gold with thin white head and lacing. Smells so good, heavy orange and zest with some pine notes. Complex and balanced with sweet dry finish... Excellent DIPA!

Oldmanriver (57) - Freiburg, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - FEB 6, 2015
Super complex and balanced. If that can be such a thing. Sweet, slightly chewy, and tropical sitting on top of bitter lingering dryness. It's oddly perfect and dangerously easy to enjoy.

alex_leit (103) - Minsk, BELARUS - FEB 3, 2015
0.33 l bottle. Cloudy-golden color with good white foam. Hop aroma with spicy, resinous, piney and citrus notes. Taste explodes juiciness, malt and fruit, biscuit, grapefruit and pine, solid bitterness. Good DIPA.

11.2oz bottle. Hazy golden with a decent off-white head. Aroma is of grapefruit, dank, light mango, and a hint of florals. Taste is of pine, dank hops, light herbals, grapefruit, and orange zest.

travita (4221) - Frisco, Texas, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Bottle. The look is white colored head, clear, and orange colored. The smell is peaches, fruit, grass, hops, and citrus. The taste is bitter, grass, fruit, orange, and good.

Vili (84) - FINLAND - JAN 31, 2015
33cl bottle. Hazy-ish medium brown pour with medium off-white head, good amount of lacing. Aromas of citrus fruits, fresh forest and exotic herbs. Taste is heavy, heavy on the bitter hops. Dry, soul-sucking palate, medium carbonation. Aftertaste is the same hops that keep on slapping. All-on. What can I say, IIPA to the max and well done, but maybe a bit one-sided somehow.

procraste (49) - FRANCE - JAN 27, 2015
Brun clair doré / Mousse riquiqui / Nez citronné net. Présence massive de bulles fines en bouche. L’amertume est maitrisée de manière très élégante et se déploie sur une base maltée, ce qui lui confére un goût très "accueillant" au sens ou elle n’agresse pas le palais mais sait aussi s’imposer avec un final plus corsé ... Maîtrisé donc mais peut-être un peu trop ... Manque peut-être un petit grain de folie ou une pointe de vulgarité pour en faire une grande bière
