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
