Glass: Standard US pint glass
Overall, I feel that calling this an IPA is a bit misleading, as this comes across more as a mildly hoppy, more citrusy-than-usual witbier. Still enjoyable as a beer, rich with pleasant witbier-like flavors and herbs at this point.
Aroma is similar to a Belgian wit, but with stronger and more herbal fragrances. In particular, hearty wheat malt is noticeable, as well as orange essence, coriander, lemongrass, and some yeastiness.
Taste is features a base of fairly sweet wheat malt combined with orange juice and rind, with very noticeable, but still secondary flavors of coriander, lemongrass, and Belgian yeast and their byproducts. Very robust flavors, just not much of a noticeable hop component in this "IPA," though again, the bottle is about a year old. Lingering aftertaste of light, fruity citrus and a bit of balanced sweetness and bitterness.
Beer is medium to medium-heavy bodied with mid-level carbonation, creating a somewhat thick mouthfeel with carbonation that fizzes and foams this up slightly across the palate. Finish is semi-dry. Generally pleasant across the palate, nothing offensive.
