Review: Collective Arts #15 Double IPA with Citra & Simcoe

A new Collective Arts IPA Series review! I looooove this series and IPA No. 15 is the first release to make its way to local Liquor Marts since I believe IPA No. 5. 

From their website: 
It's back!! We are bringing back the overwhelming fan-favourite IPA #5 for the latest instalment in our IPA Series. This DIPA is made with massive amounts of Simcoe and Citra hops, which are bursting with notes of bright grapefruit citrus, juicy tropical mango and passionfruit, with pleasantly dank, piney undertones, and a touch of lactose for sweetness.

I reviewed IPA No. 5 several months ago so I'll be posting it as soon as I can, I'm just too busy.

Appearance: Yellowish and cloudy pineapple appearance to it, light carbonation in the body, while the head is a moderate snow white head that diminishes rather quickly to leave behind a light lacing on the side.

Aroma: Very Citra-forward DIPA. It's quite sweet, tropical, floral and fairly leafy. Notes of pineapple, orange, lemon and a tad bit of vegetal presence to it. 

Taste: Sweet and tropical DIPA with notes of pineapple, orange and lemon. There's a bit of a leafy presence from the hops, as well as a tad bit of a bitterness at the end. A bit yeasty and an aftertaste that's a bit bready and a slight bitterness lingering for a while.

Overall Thoughts: You'll see my review of IPA No. 5 in coming days. Decent DIPA, tropical, leafy and quite sweet. Fairly easy to drink.
