Default FWH and hopbursting DIPA

I have experimented with hopbursting and loved the results. The flavor and aroma contribution is absolutely outstanding. I have not tried full wort hopping yet and am interested to see the results. I understand this hop schedule may not provide the bitterness some may want out of a DIPA, my goal is for a Citrus hop bomb with a pleasant bitterness and absurdly citric flavor and aroma.

first wort 60+ mins 1.0 Warrior
first wort 60+ mins 1.0 Summit
boil 20 mins 0.5 Simcoe

I too have become a big fan of hopbursting.

I don't think I could stand so much Citra. I really like it in small doses as a dryhop, along with Amarillo or Cascades, but it's easy to get too much (for me) tropical fruit flavor. And when used in the boil, I get too much grapefruit. Its not bad, just a bit much for me.

However I'm sure that will be a very nice brew. Perhaps the Simcoe (which I have not ever used) will be a good counterbalance to it.

The last brew I did with hopbursting was a Rye Pale Ale. I used Amarillo and Citra exclusively. The flavor provided by the hopbursting was a perfect balance to the Rye astringency for my taste. So car my luck with Citra as an aroma/flavor hop has been good and I will run with it for now.
