L - Deep orange with a thin white head. heavy lacing and syrupy legs
S - Candied orange peel, with a touch of musky dank
T - Dank up front, opening up to a bright citrus burst with sweeter malts and a soft bitterness to finish
F - A touch prickly and over-carbed. Heavier malt backbone

Overall, a solid DIPA. Softer hop bitterness which I prefer. Not as pronounced aroma as I would like, but sill very much worth tracking down
