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.

This is Swedens best IPA. I love this beer, and so do a lot of other Norwegians, as it is ordered and sold out fairly quickly whenever it arrives. A strong ABV on the nose with an almost magical use of hops, this is just, well, everything I want from a beer. Now, if only I had tons of money and could have this beer on tap in my flat 24/7, I’d be golden.

Aroma: intense citrus, resin, grass, floral; Appearance: pale golden, vanishing head; Taste: intense bitterness, medium sourness, slight sweetness; Palate: long finish, full body, thick texture, soft carbonation Very intense aroma, perfect bitterness, alcohol shows just a bit through.

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.

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 …

Has God sent down the ipa? It’s like olympus in the mouth. Maybe the best I’ve tried! The scent is lovely. You never want to stop smelling this beer. The flavor should we not talk about. It is heavenly and the aftertaste never ends in the mouth. This beer must only drink. I find this beer in the future I’ll buy me a bottle of their own. Do you see this beer, buy it immediately.
