This is a great beer for what it is. Smell is dominated by hops (obviously) with citrus. Taste starts off with ambiguous citrus and tea flavors, lending to a distinct grapefruit flavor and leaving a dry grapefruit finish. There's not a ton of complexity nor is there much malt balance, but it tastes great [even] without the bite from the high ABV of most IPAs. Mouthfeel is on the thin side, which is necessarily for this to be a "session beer", but it isn't too thin and the carbonation is kept in check, making this mouthfeel, while not generally what I prefer, to be successful. It's not fair to compare this to the average IPA when it doesn't aim to be. If you're looking for a lower alcohol IPA that still has plenty of flavor, this is a pretty good choice
