There was some confusion trying to find this beer. There is another namesake that has been Retired and IIRC it's listed as an English IPA. This can in the Tasting Notes starts 'A West Coast IPA' and then it goes on re: fruit and floral aromas which to me is far more US than UK IPA.

L- Dark old-gold, clear, pours with 1Cm just off-white head. Head holds pretty well and forms lacing.
S- Like a bowl of chopped tropical fruits.
T- Bitter/sour, dry, and unfortunately beyond some fruity notes, not much else gets through on my palate (for me).
F- Dry, on swallowing my tonge is left feeling briefly numb.
O- The profile is entirely hipster IMHO, over-hopped so balance is prejudiced, with an over-emphasis on fruits and flowers. Interesting to try, I'm sure it might appeal to younger folk, not one for me.
Bought recently from a Waitrose in west London. 330ml can. £1.10 BB: 22/06/2020.

The lable is confusing. It includes: 'A pale ale brewed for India'. 'Odell Brewing Co., [and] Originally brewed with Odell Brewing Company'. 'Brewed in the UK by Rooster's Brewery Ltd, Unit H5, HG2 8QT'. And so on re: all the hop and malt varieties.
