Nebuchadnezzar's links to Babylon (and therefore to Sumer and the creation of beer itself) are a testament to this superbly balanced beer from Omnipollo. Citrus and tropical fruit notes in the nose AND on the palate, balanced nicely with a solid malt backbone, a smooth mouthfeel and a finish that doesn't quit for a long time make this beer an outstanding choice for DIPA lovers. An 8.5% ABV commands some serious respect, but if I'm at home, I wouldn't hesitate to have two, or even or three, if I didn’t have to get up early the next day—it's THAT good. If you can find it, get it.

Best before 05-02-16, so i'd say it's fairly fresh. Sure smells like it, right after popping the cap.
Pours hazy orange, building up a rich two finger and a half fluffy white head that doesn't rush anywhere. Later on a thin cap remains and a very sticky lace.
There's a perfect marriage of citrus and pine in the smell, all atop quite a lot of caramel, with some sweet tropical fruit (papaya, pineapple, faint lychee and mango) and orchard fruit (apricot, peach, pear). This should be great.
Huge pineapple in the front, probably the clearest i've found in a beer, followed by tons of bitter citrus, like grapefruit and lemon peel, getting sweeter in a flash second, with tangerines, pomelo, limes, also some peach and perfumey mango. Nice caramel helps the sweetness, also some honey with quite a lot of floral notes. Big green notes, like pine resin, weed, hop oils, a huge fresh leafiness follows, and sweeps away any sweetness, giving room to a huge, dry, spicy bitterness.
Medium body and carbonation, creamy, almost oily. Fitting for such a rich heavy IIPA. Aftertaste is a hop nuke fallout, leaving nice fruitiness and big bitter green notes. You don't have time to feel any alcohol.
A rollercoaster, with a big surprising complexity, but in the end perfectly balanced, great flavours, incredible hops.
