UPDATED: MAR 11, 2012 A crazy kinda orange and raspberry color. Aroma contains lemons, raspberry, orange. Flavor is sweet with loads of chick beer and malterative flavor. Kool aid almost. Overall not an IPA but a decent wine cooler.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a hazy golden orange with minimal head. Aroma of wheat and a little citrus hops. Taste is light bitter and lightly sweet. It tastes like they took a decent beer then cut it with water...lots of water. Light bodied with a thin texture. Fizzy carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, not very good. Not something I would recommend to anyone.

Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarket - Thomasville Rd - 12 oz bottle. Murky dark orange pour, snow white head, light lacing. No real discernible aroma - I tried hard to find one. Flavor is a bit muddled, faint fruitiness with the closest approximation I can come up with is artificial apricot. Hint of spiciness, some honey sweetness. Mouthfeel is smooth, but turns acidic near the end. Not sure where this one is headed.

drowland (7055) - Georgia, USA - FEB 27, 2012
2/27/12. 12oz bottle. Slightly hazed orange pour with a small khaki head that fades and laces a bit. I really wanted to like this, I really did, but alas, it’s awful, and nowhere close to an IPA. Muted aroma of citrus and spice, moreso from the base than the hops, I’d say. Sweet and slightly tangy wheat malt flavor with a touch of citrus and creaminess. Not an IPA and barely a wheat beer... this is miserable. Why oh why did I give it a chance?

bottle, golden yellow pour with some wispy foam, aroma and flavor holds neither wheat nor hops, pretty straightforward lager

TheBeerGod (5593) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Bottle. Pretty pour. Orange amber body with a tall, foamy, dense white head. Aroma is grainy with big yeast notes, citrus fruit and malt. Taste is also big wheat and yeast notes with citrus notes and sweet malt. Body is light-medium with a moderate carbonation. Finishes with a touch bigger citrus flavor, more yeast, grains, toasted malt, floral hops and candied fruit.

Aurelius (4677) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Doughy, orangey, slightly floral aroma. OK, the labels and iconography for Shock Top are starting to border on the psychedelic - anthropomorphized orange slice with an aqua wheat mohawk -- sounds like a bad day outside the Dead concert. Hazy, maple gold with a diffuse white head. Very, very slightly astringent. Lightly starchy, slightly sweet, spices and light American hops. Comes off more of a pale ale than an IPA. Light body, medium bitter finish. Publix, up by I-10.

kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - FEB 24, 2012
(bottle) served as blind taste. Hazy light amber with small white head. Aroma of pale malt and some light citrus. Flavor is light wheat, a little citrus, not really a whole lot of hops. But it was decent.

The aroma is a touch dirty but mostly adjuncts and noticeable hops. Now for most beers it would be in the acceptable range for a wheat beer but for this company noticeable hops mean IPA. The appearance is amber with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is watery. Overall not a worthy beer to drink.

Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 23, 2012
Bottle from Kroger. Hazy yellow orange pour with a small white head. Aroma is just kinda grainy and there. Taste is bitter, wheaty, and vaguely vegetative.
