“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). Fresh aroma of hops with elements of tropical fruit, pine and citrus. The taste is very fresh with the same flavorings as in the scent, tropical fruit, pine and citrus. The flavor is extremely sticky, i.e. it remains long in the mouth. Yes, a nice and extremely aromatic hops beer, but I would like a slightly more malty base, which could have controlled the hops aroma better.

Pours a pale cloudy straw colour, with a fizzy white head. Aroma includes huge notes of pine, grapefruit, and mango. Taste notes include dusty citrus, pine, resin, and a peppery finish. Not much of a malt presence for an IIPA, but this beer probably is not as fresh as it should be. If this beer was fresh, I could imagine how much more awesome it would be! I would definitely have had no idea that his beer is 8.5% alcohol! Making this beer dangerously drinkable!

Extremely open fresh hop flavours bringing pine grapefruit and grass, fruity base, moderately astringent. Pours pale and cloudy, excellent.

Spab (2256) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2014
330 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a cloudy golden colour with decent-sized, lasting white head that leaves a little lace. Aroma is big resiny and spicy hoppiness, some tropical fruit and gentle crackery grains. Flavour is full of pine resin, spicy hops, grapefruit rind and a bit of graininess. Solid bitterness in finish. Medium body with a bit of silkiness in the mouthfeel. Nice one.

jamestulloch (1228) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle from The Beerhive. Hazy amber body with a medium off-white head. Lively carbonation. Excellent lacing. Aroma of flower petals, caramel, biscuit, tangerine and a hint of Edam cheese. Flavour of minerals, orange, green hops and pine. Dry, bitter finish. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft fizz. A sublime Imperial IPA - outrageously drinkable for 8.5% ABV.

probstblueribbon (2858) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2014
33 cl bottle from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Cloudy deep golden with a nice light tan head. Aroma: Quite peppery and spicy, resin, tropical fruitiness, light biscuit and possibly Vienna/Munich malt support. Palate: Medium+ body, fairly full carbonation. Flav.: Quite peppery, much less fruitiness, all business and no play, moderate biscuit and British malt support, maybe a touch of honey; dry with big bitterness and a long, quite peppery finish.

A little too hardcore for me. So much pepper.

jksipa (278) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2014
Bottle from the LCBO. Very hazy amber with a two finger off white head that hangs around a while leaving a bit of lace. Nose is a big dose of pine, resin, grapefruit and grass with small doses of toffee, honey and vanilla. Intensely bitter from start to finish with some caramel and honey sweetness making an appearance in the middle to take the edge off. Finish has a bit of spice. Medium body with lively carbonation. Excellent.

neuromatt (1097) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2014
33 cL bottle from the LCBO, served in a stem glass. Pours slightly hazy amber with a large beige head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a moderate amount of fine lace. The nose has big notes of citrus peel and orange, along with pine, pineapple, resin and biscuity malts. The flavour is moderate-intensely bitter throughout with big resin, citrus and pine on a biscuity malt background. Notes of grapefruit, grass and pineapple also come through nicely. It closes out with a long, peppery-citric hoppy bitter finish. On the palate it is medium in body with a milky texture, medium acidity and a moderate bite from the carbonation. Overall, a very nice imperial IPA with an impressive hop profile. Bittering hops are nicely complex, but the aroma could be a bit more prominent; I wonder if a fresher bottle might have a nicer nose. 2014-07-10

Jayseppi (143) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2014
Wow. Wonderful hoppy bouquet wafts out of the glass. Tropical fruits and citrus are the focus. Fiery orange colour and a white foam cap. The flavour has the sweetness from the malt sharply contrasted with the big smack of assertive bitterness from the hops. Not an aggressive, throat scratching bitterness, but a pleasant, well integrated bitterness that adds dimension to the beer. Medium bodied and a long lingering finish that is dominated by holy aromatics and bitterness. Best double IPA I’ve had in a while.

codfishh (53) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2014
Poured from a 355ml bottle, aroma is all grapefruit, thin white head lots of lacing on the glass. Big grapefruit taste with some pine on the end, hides the alcohol well very smooth beer.
