Default What should I call this?

I brewed an IPA a while back and because of circumstances I was unable to bottle it until recently. Most of the hop aroma has turned into pure oranges and the beer tastes a bit like a fruity, hoppy, yeast liquid. So, does this still fit into any style? Should I just make something up? I want to believe it's okay to give to people to try, but if I call it an IPA they'll be very confused.

How long ago did you bottle? it will taste different when carbonated...maybe even like an IPA...

It's been bottled for 2 weeks, but no it's not fully carbed. Hopefully you're right. At the very least, I think this is the clearest and cleanest beer I've ever brewed.
