4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a wheaty gold with an onslaught of billowing white head. The nose is piney hops and grapefruit citrus along with a clean wheat crispness. The taste is bready malt and floral hops, with pine building into the finish. The mouthfeel is decently full for a wheat ale, and with lots of tingly hoppiness. Overall, this is a wonderful and refreshing wheat ale. The fuller body is especially nice and I love the nose on this brew.

Can sample at Canvitational. Poured hazy orange color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus hop and wheat aroma. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Solid brew.

Cloudy pale yellow. Thin body. A lot of fruit flavors going on and some grassy flavors too. Smells intensely of fresh hops but not as bitter drinking. It is OK. Mostly relying on lots of hops. Serving: Can

Growler from the brewery. Pours lightly hazy golden with a white head. Aromas of mango, citrus, grassy hops, and some wheat. Flavors of mango, orange, wheat, and a bit of pale malt. Nice amount of hop bitterness. Nice hoppy wheat.

Not my first Shogun...guess I was enjoying them too much to rate.....from Antioch Liquors via the beer frig at the lake. Pours a foggy yellow with your usual 2 or 3 finger head; quickly dissipates with some moderate lacing.
As advertised....the wheaty nose and taste blended with a hoppy (spruce / citrus) bite. Wonderful.
Will keep 'em coming....but ONLY IN ILLINOIS!

On tap at GTMW 2013 - Pours hazy golden with a thin white head. Nose is fruity with dank hops, and lightly wheaty malt. Pretty straightforward. Taste is dank mango hops, nice wheat and dry pale malt. Gentle carbonation and a medium body.

16oz can. Thank you to the owner of Bare Hands brewery. Mostly hazy, golden yellow color. Good thin white head. Good bits and short ropes of lace. Awesome flavor profile. Great, sort of lightly dry wheat aroma, with the perfect amount of grassy, hay-like hops. Some light lemon citrus. Medium body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry in the finish. Good hoppy aftertaste. Light to moderate amount of bitter, very nice zesty sweet, just a bit of spice. Probably the most awesome wheat ale I’ve ever had. I’d have happily shared, but I’m glad I got to enjoy this one all to myself.
