Golden color with a thin head with short retention.
Mild aroma with notes of pale malt and maybe a light grapefruit.
Flavor with notes of grapefruit, lemon, butter on bread, some oxidation and grass. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light to watery body with appropriate carbonation. It is surprising they were able hiding 6.1% under this dress.
That is like a mass version of an IPA, but also meaning I would rather having that than any Adjunct Lager, but it does not kill a craving for a due IPA.

I don't know what exactly this beer is, but it is far from what I would expect an IPA to taste like it. Not very good. Too citrusy for an IPA
