At 55 IBU, this isn't really an IPA but rather a pale ale. It's an easy drink, and meets expectations as described on the bottle with a citrus nose followed by a malty backbone and hoppy finish. But this is not hoppy enough, to me, to be called an IPA. Label it a pale, and it may get a slightly higher score from me.
