Solid IPA, but doesn't quite sustain the bite I need

A: Pours a nice amber with a thick, creamy head. Plenty sticky lacing.

S: grapefruit, apricot, and a little pine.

T: Sweet with a transition into slight bitterness.

M: light in the mouth without a ton of carbonation. Very drinkable.

D: Quality DIPA but just lacks the sustained flavors needed to tick top marks. A great value. A bomber of this is enjoyable, but not something to remember.

Bomber bottle poured into a snifter.

A- a semi-translucent (chill haze) orange, slightly amber, with a thin white head. Not much lacing to be had.

S- an almost honey sweetness, with tangerine and grapefruit notes. An almost entirely citric hop presence.

T- Sweet, but not overly so. Tangerine, grapefruit and some peach. The citric hops crush had towards the end with a balancing bitterness that really stays on the palette. Decidedly a Lagunitas brew.

M- a light carbonation with a fairly light mouthfeel for a double IPA. I really wish there was a more creamy mouthfeel here.

O- Good, but not great. Wouldn't seek it out as I have many other readily available (better) options, but certainly not bad by any means.

Received in CanBIF 6 from IronDjinn, thanks man! Nice treat!

Pours a lightly hazy golden orange with lots of light sticky, bubbly head which efficiently settles to a tiny layer, leaving a good amount of lace.

Huge hop nose. Lots of citrus (grapefruit, lemon), some pine, weed, something lightly woody.

Taste has tons of hops from start to finish. Fruity at first, some mango backing up the citrus, then a touch of caramel maltiness, finishing with straight up hoppy bitterness, almost to the point of being astringent. Hops still taste fresh and powerful. Overall, a little unbalanced towards the hop side, but I guess that's kinda the point.

Mouthfeel is great, carbonation is on the lower end, which I prefer for most English and American ales. Also results in improves drinkability.

This is a hoppy treat, the likes of which is not easy to find in Canada, especially Ontario, so I'm very grateful for receiving this one.
