“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.

Orange, crystal clear. Aroma cane sugar, tropical fruit, toffee. Palate medum, nice carbonation. Taste tangerines, pineapple. Dry finish. Maybe too dry, but thats just that I like IPAs from the sweeter end. Very good beer.

Gurthnar (3814) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - NOV 16, 2015
Bottle thanks to Rusos. Brutal hops experience. Intense both in aroma and flavour. Sufficiently attenuated and carbonated. Alcohol hidden, relatively easy drinking. High bitterness and a burst of fruity hops flavours, citrusy, zesty, juicy. Excellent.

aleigator (550) - GERMANY - NOV 15, 2015
Pours a beautiful, hazy orange color, with a big, bubbly very long lasting head. Has an utmost fruity nose, defined by incredibly juicy orange, getting wrapped up by grass, crisp lemon, gently balanced by sweeter toffee malts. The hops unfold a perfumy, floral quality, blending flawlessly into the omnipresent orange, with a lurking yeast skunkiness underneath, adding to the malts. Has a medium carbonation, while the beer provides an extreme hoppiness, revealing a pungent hop burn on the tongue, successfully balanced by an otherwise very creamy mouthfeel. It remains pleasantly drinkable throughout, with a medium bodied, dank refreshment to it. Tastes of cakey malts, while its initial sweetness vanishes immediately to a minimum, balancing effectivly the uprising hop onslaught. While beginning with a soothing herbal quality, hops unfold a huge load of crisp lemon pulp, producing instantly a bold bitterness, coated up by wet grass and a note of pine. This subtle sweet hint is enough to build a bridge for a more profound maltiness, while maintaining an outstandingly smooth mouthfeel. This leads to a long lasting, ripe orange juice quality, accompanied by water melon, kiwi and a dank dryness, leaving the palate in a very clean fashion. While producing a breathtaking depth, as for its juicy hop profile, the beers mouthfeel is outstanding. It exhibits an immense taste intensity without giving any clue about its higher alcohol content. Its soft creaminess, mellowed even more by a profound dank quality, coates up the taste very effectivly, creating a fantastic beer.

Pours a thick looking hazy gold with a slight eggshell head that leaves some nice ropes of intricate lace. Nose involves rich fruity aromas of peach and apricot, a toasty grainy quality, some dankness and floral notes. Pretty sweet flavor, decently bitter. Full, thick body, soft and creamy, with a lingering grassy herbal floral hop bitterness that finishes quite dry. Nicely put together, good hop qualities, comes across as decently fresh though no clue on age (guessing it’s not super fresh considering how far it traveled to get here). Fun to try, but quite pricy so a doubtful revisit.

Samuel214 (123) - SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2015
Flaska från SB. Bärnstensfärgad, grumlig vätska med näst intill fingertjockt beige-vitt skum. Friska, fruktiga toner av mango, ananas, passionsfrukt. Citrus i mängder; citron, lime och mild, tillbakahållen grape. Även granskott och grön humlekotte. Läskande dofter! Fyllig, svällande kropp som tar bra med plats i munnen. Smaken inleds med försiktig citrus och exotiska frukter för att svälla ut i härlig tallskog, kåda och kolatoner. Avslutningen är kraftfull med en bra beska som delar plats med alkohol. Lämnar en bra beska i gommen. Trevlig, smakrik och välbalanserad Imperial IPA. Trots sin kraft håller den sig i schack.
