Good hop flavor. This is what I like in an IPA.

Just had this for first time yesterday
Bottle into a glass
Color is gold
Smell is citrus hops
Taste is mostly hops. Not so much malt balance here, but does not devolve into dish soap.
Mouthfeel is not oily or heavy in any way
Overall, if you want a good hop bite in a beer that is lighter overall and therefore session material, this isn't bad.
