“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.

Bottle from slow beer. Yesss. Pours a cloudy orange a frothy white head. Aroma is tropical fruit bowl! Grapefruit, pine, lychee, mango and lemon. Nice soft carbonation just perfect. Taste is loads of pine and citrus hops with a sweetened malt backing. Right at the backend of the palate a syrup sweetness is experienced. Dry bitterness is huge. Alcohol hidden very well which is a recipe for a good double ipa. Great beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Zapach intensywny, owoce tropikalne, cytrusy, karmel, trawa, przyprawy. Kolor złoty, mętne. Piana średnio obfita, drobna, średnio trwała, zdobi szkło. W smaku umiarkowana słodycz, średnia pełnia, owoce tropikalne, słód, sosna, perfumy, przyprawy. Goryczka wysoka, wysycenie średnie.

Heidbummer (226) - SCOTLAND - SEP 13, 2016
Tap BD Camden. Pours gold, hint of haze, frothy evanescent head. Smells of pine, soap, like a Japanese onsen (I am not kidding). Hoppy, bitter, dry as f**k. Almost astringent. Complex. Citrus, soap, pine, a bit yeasty. Bloody marvellous.

onceblind (7302) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 11, 2016
Slightly hazy deep golden hue under a thick Rocky white head. Thick musty nose that’s a little earthy, citrusy, and resiny. Large flavor that’s just as earthy as the nose but has a big pop of pine and grapefruit zest, built on a boozy bread toast body, loads of lasting flavorful pithy resins and earthy bitterness. Large and brash, though rounded and complex.

Pours a slightly cloudy amber with generous head and generous bubbles. Nose is slight malt and unripe hops. Taste full, bitter, hops and slightly grassy. EXCELLENT IPA - one of the best that I have tasted.

espenra (994) - Kurland, NORWAY - SEP 8, 2016
33cl bottle. No batch info. Best before 2018-06-09. It poured a slightly hazy golden orange colour with a medium big white foamy head. Aroma is hoppy and fruity with a solid malty backbone. Flavour is bitter and hoppy. Lots of pine and tropical fruits with notes of resin, apple, spices and ending with malty notes. Suprisingly short aftertaste.

Bottle from SB, pours a slightly hazy kidney infection urine. Four finger off-white head. Nose is very fruity, tons of citrus, hrapefruit, apple, mild spices. Great bitterness, tugs on your cheeks along with the malty, bready body. A hint of coffee and smoke at the back of the throat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

33cl bottle at home from Only Good Beer, Budapest. Nose is grass, citrus. Body is opalescent orange, head is big, white, rocky, fully lasting, excellent lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, honey, grass, tea, leaves, spices. Medium sweet, medium to heavy bitter, light citric sour. Finish is long lasting hoppy heavy bitter. Full body, soapy texture, soft carbonation. Not that easy, strong flavor, simple but very tasty, great one.

Impériale ipa de 8,5 % abv, brassée chez de Proef en Belgique. Un peu de malt de maïs dans la composition … on n’aime pas trop, mais des flocons d’avoine, là on est davantage preneur. Mon exemplaire était à 16 mois avant sa date. Couleur doré tendre, au léger voile de levure. Bulles très fines, en colonnes droites, sur les parois principalement. Mousse blanc cassé, assez crémeuse, stable à 2 mm. Arômes de blé, orge, agrumes, genièvre, pointe de girofle, coing. 1ère bouche soyeuse avec agrumes, orge, pointe de houblon vert. Arrière-bouche dense, consistante, à l’amertume travaillée. 2ème au très bel ensemble malt/agrumes/épices. Arrière-bouche toujours aussi dense, avec de nouvelles nuances dans l’amer. 3ème au très grand ensemble de plus en plus fondu. Arrière-bouche avec de nouvelles découvertes. Longueur qui travaille tous les registres, et donne de vraies nobles amertumes de haut vol. Jambes fines, denses, groupées, longues. Levure fine, un peu épicée, grande ligne. Alcool très bien, il officie au sein de l’ensemble en coordonnant le tout. Finale longue, complexe, avec des senteurs des îles. CONCLUSION : on doit bien s’amuser chez de Proef, en réalisant de pareilles bières pour la Suède … Il faudrait en fait les ajouter aux quelques ipa belges qui passent la rampe …
