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.

ClarkVV (6214) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 24, 2017
Draught at the brewery, 11/29/16.
Lightly hazy, blonde-golden body is topped by a good-sized white head with moderate retention.
Nectarine, papaya, light cat, honey, biscuit and strong lemon-lime fill the nose with light resin on the finish. Medium amount of intensity to the hops with only a light juiciness but reasonably enjoyable tropical notes. Clean and not boozy.
In the mouth its quite dry with an initial burst of tropical fruit with light juiciness giving way to lightly biscuity/bready malts and some moderate resin. Pithy, dry, rather bitter finish with some alcohol on it. Fairly soft texture, but some more malt depth/richness would go a long way here.

SebBrews (106) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - JAN 22, 2017
Pours pale hazy color with a small, non-dense, short lived white head. Nose is mango puree, rhubarb, pine. Some alcohol is also detectable. The taste is sweet with only a very discrete hop bitterness towards the end. Notes of mango, rhubarb, grapefruit, resin. Creamy, average carbonation. Astringent finish. A very smooth, flavourful IIPA, one of the best I had recently.

kryspin3 (43) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JAN 20, 2017
Jasne złoto z pomarańczowym odcieniem. Piana obfita, drobne i średnie pęcherzyki. W aromacie melon, pomarańcza, sosna, mięta i niestety mid. (Piwo świeże, pewnie w transporcie coś było nie tak). W smaku jest podbudowa słodowa, cytrusy, chmiel, tytoń, rodzynki. Bardzo fajny posmak mango. Goryczka konkretna.

330ml bottle. Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a medium, frothy, long lasting, off-white head that leaves curtains of lace. Sweet aroma of pale malt, caramel, mango, apricot, orange, grapefruit, lemon, pine needles and a light floral note. Sweet flavour of pale malt, caramel, grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, tropical fruit, apricot, pine needles and a floral note with a dry, bitter grass, hop resin finish. Medium body with an oily texture and average carbonation. Excellent, a must try.

On tap at La Caisse. Pours a short white head with very pleasant long round hops, on sweet butter brioche and yellow flowers. Slightly hazy gold colored body. Long and round in mouth with balanced bitterness. A venerable IPA ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
