Poured from a 12-oz bottle. Very pale yellow & not much head - not unattractive, looks like your typical wheat beer. Almost no aroma of any kind - one of the least aromatic beers I've had in a while. Very very strong citrus taste - almost shandy like - and I'm really struggling to note any hoppy bitterness at all. Carbonation is on the lower end, but not unpleasantly so.

This is my first mediocre review on here, but if the label says IPA, I want at least some of the bitter notes of the hops to come through - this one tastes more like a basic wheat beer with a generous dose of lemon squeezed into it. Its not a bad drink, but not a particularly good one either.
