When you see an IPA you expect hops. Lots of hops. This beer doesn't meet those expectations. It's not bad as far as beer goes, but it's pretty pathetic as far as IPA's go. If you're used to maybe amber or brown ales and want to try IPA, start with this one to break you in. I could say its mislabeled, but instead will just call it an IPA with training wheels.
