“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.

Pours orange with low white head Hoppy aromas of oranges, pine, apricots. Very nice typical dipa buttery taste. High bitterness, high bodied, medium sweet. almost ruination like bitterness... Citrusy piny taste. Its a hype here in sweden and its almost worth it. I find both drakens and anders better. Overall very good work!

tomer (2081) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - MAY 21, 2015
At a tasting, small bubbly head, light hazy orange color, fruity citrusy aroma with just a soapy hint. herbal flavor with a bready backbone, hint of rose petals and pine in the back, medium herbal bitterness, light mellow sweetness, suprisingly light. Really nice and enjoyable.

Bottle from omhper - many thanks! The beer has got a hazy orange-amber colour with a steady head and smooth body. Aroma of hops, oranges and pine. Taste of hops, pine, spruce, citrus fruits, mango, flowers and straw. Dry-bitter finish. Enjoyed it.

RuneStumo (2342) - FØRRESFJORDEN, NORWAY - MAY 17, 2015
17.05.2015. 0,33l Bottle. Systembolaget Strömstad. Golden orange colour with white head. Unclear. Very nice aromas of grapefruit, spruce and some kind of spices. Good body with pretty good malty flavours and good strength. Aftretaste is fresh with spruce and grapefruit, and leaves a very nice bitter mouthfeel. Good one.

Spralleman (16) - SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2015
A wonder of cloudy ambergolden waterfalls pouring down my glass. Aroma of rapeseed honey and flowers. A complex full body filled with hops, hops, hops and sweetness. Honey and a hint of orange zest. Might be the best one ever.

andriesradu (563) - ROMANIA - MAY 5, 2015
Pours dark yelow. Sadly it’s about one year old and the rating isn’t very accurate. Hoppy, fruity, sweet aroma. Full body and creamy mouthfeel with notes of hops, citrus, sweet malt, but not so strong.

mariuszek (374) - Gdynia, POLAND - APR 30, 2015
Pours hazy, dark golden, peachy color, medium, but lasting head, good lacing. Nice aroma of resin, tropical fruits and some barnyard notes. Taste is malty, fruity, but dry with loads of bitter grapefruit and herbal hops on finish. No trace of alcohol. Very good beer.

GIJOE (788) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - APR 24, 2015
Pours a beautiful peachy-amber with a wildly frothy white head that lasts long and leaves copious lacing. Nose is intensely hoppy with rich malts and tropical fruit notes. Taste is on the bitter side. Full body. Mild carbonation. Very nice brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours very hazy with hop particles, for the style very promising! Aroma is slightly held back by age on my bottle it feel like, still lots of citrus and pine just not the "room filling" aroma bomb i expect from hop juice style Imperials! Taste is very dank right from the start, citrus, pine, the usual suspects really. This was one of my first Imperial IPA:s back in the day, loved it back then, now it just seems like there are so many options that does the same trick but slightly better! Still an really top notch ale!
