IBU of 90 should indicate this is no watered down IPA. Fun & interesting from the first taste. If you want a very Hearty beer this one is it. Not for every occasion but get your beer drinking buddies together to enjoy and critique together. This beer should be enjoyed without food, just the beer.

Bomber poured into a goblet, a gorgeous hazy pale orange with a white head leaving foamy lace. Some still murkiness to it that is a bit off-putting, surely just yeast/sediment clinging to the glass.
Smell is resinous, dank, a touch phenolic.
Taste is really bright hops, funky, minimal malt, spot on my sweet spot. A little phenolic as well, some alcoholic spice, but by in large a big clean hop bomb. Well done!
Mouthfeel is bone dry, med-minus.
Drinkability is high. Digging this, a guzzler of a hop-bomb. Northern Lights continues to deliver killer IPAs, and I'm really happy to see this double deviates form the sugary trend some of their smaller IPAs trended towards. I'll keep my eye out for this at local tap-rooms.

12 oz bottle, poured into a teku
A - clear; orange/gold; pours with a very small amount of white head which quickly dissipates leaving only a ring of foam around the glass; leaves well spaced out lacing with each sip
S - a subdued nose for a double IPA but delicious none the less; mango,pumpkin (fleeting but there), tangerine, lightly fermented lemon, light spice
T/M - mostly follows the nose; tangerine, mango, black tea, lychee, lightly ferminted lemon, citrus rind, mild/moderate spice; slight bite on the finish with a slightly sweet/bitter aftertaste; nicely balanced and leaves you ready for more
O - a double IPA that you'd have to be crazy to be disappointed in; I found notes here that I haven't experienced in an IPA before (pumpkin, black tea, lychee) and I found them very enjoyable

Thanks to jtd1969 for sharing this bottle
A - goldish orange with a soft, white head that has good retention
S - faintly herbal, crystal malts
T - citrus, bready, sweet malt, alcohol, faintly herbal, faintly piney
M - medium bodied, well carbonated, warm
This is a nice DIPA. It has a nice, complex hop character, solid balance, a nice drinkability for the ABV. This is definitely worth a try.

22oz bottle poured into a large snifter. No dates noticeable on the bottle.
Pours pretty, clear coppery golden with a pretty fluffy white head, fades fairly fast and leaves a clumpy sheet along the side of the glass. Smell is mild, but tasty. Floral, citrus, honeysuckle, reminds me of A Little Sumpin' Sumpin'.
Taste is weighted toward the grapefruit rind, lots of sweetness detectable but still dominated by the hops. This is actually pretty darn tasty.
Mouthfeel is light but slightly slick. Overall, pretty good! First beer I've tried from these guys, I think.

Poured into an imperial nonic a a clear orange infused medium golden with a tightly formed pne finger white head,a great head and a menacing looking body.Drunken fruits and pine resin in the nose,just like it should be,you can tell it's gonna be sweet and alcoholic but the hops are larege and in charge.I gotta say this is much dryer on the palate than I was expecting,not a big sweet alcohol bomb but also not a big resiny hopped up bomb either.Dryer with a firm maltiness and rsiny hops,the sweetness creeps but the alcohol is pretty big.As I drink more the alcohol gets bigger but it's still not nearly as sweet as many of the style,a resiny almost spearmint-like hoppiness prevails along with alcohol.Another NO-LI winner in my opinion.

22oz Bomber with no bottling date into a snifter
Pours a pretty orange color with a moderate white head. Smell is mild NW piney hops, typical for an IPA though I'd expect a bit more from a double. Taste is quite surprising. Not heavy at all, and in fact even lighter than their regular IPA despite the higher ABV. I'd guess this was in the 5-6% range. Light citrus and NW hops with a bitter finish. Beer goes down very smooth and this is one that you could finish a bomber off quick.
Overall a very solid IPA. Dont think of this one as a double, because it's really not.
