Just not what I have learned to expect from an IPA. More of a pale ale in my opinion. Good hoppiness to start, but felt watery on the back end. There did not seem to be a significant malt background to balance this beer. It just kind of bottomed out. Could be a decent session beer if you don't want to take on some of the higher gravity IPA's. But what you sacrifice in alcohol content is also sacrificed in depth of character. As many beer advocates may know, this is not a general rule, just an unfortunate consequence of this particular recipe.

T: big bitterness with piney hops, citrus and subtle tropical fruits, malts to balance it out; nice hop profile
M/D: full bodied, appropriate carbonation, drinkability is good
O: well done IPA
