No hoppy flavor. No hoppy aroma. Definitely not an IPA. Has more of a lager flavor, but even that would be generous for this nebulous waste of beer making supplies. Website says HQ is Chicago, IL but bottle says brewed/bottled in Monroe, WI. Minhas? Berghoff? Blame who you want, other than yourself for buying this stuff.

Definitely the best thing about this beer is its appearance. Nothing else, except the ABV reflects anything close to a traditional or even recognizable IPA. Almost no hops in the nose, very little in the taste, body is not bad except there's some missing characteristics that the hops give to the mouth feel. And of course the finish sums all of this up. I can hardly imagine how a more forgettable beer could be made.
