This beer defines the APA vs IPA argument to me. How is this not an IPA?

Very solid APA. Perfectly balanced. Nothing stands out as amazing, just a super solid beer.

While my score may not be above 4, this is an above ave APA. I am a big Oskar Blues fan...all their beers are solid for each style. This pale ale is awesome on a hot summer day by the pool. Very sessionable with good flavor. If you search, you will find the malts, hops but not too much even on the mild side, and various flavors of citrus, pine and sweet caramel, with a small bite of bitterness...but more easiness going down than bitter.
