3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy straw yellow pour with an enormous white, rocky head. Aromas of sparkling hops and some zest. Taste is a little on the weak side... slightly watery, slghtly lacking, but spiked with citrusy notes. I like this, for what it is. Not mind blowing, but decent.

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.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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

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!
