12 oz bottle: Aroma has got some hops in there cascade I think. Also, Orange, coriander, and a light bubble gum note. Appearance is a cloudy orange with a medium white head that lingers. Taste has got some up front hops then melds into more of a wheat beer, then more hops. Finally, a finish of a mixture of hops and bubble gum. Overall, Not really an IPA per se, but a decent beer none the less. Cheers!

Bottle. Pours copper with white head. Not an ipa. Nothing like an ipa actually. Extremely light body, extremely tasteless, pretty horrible. Really not much going on, at all. Bleh. I am blown away that they call this an ipa, have they ever tasted one!?

More tart than I expected. Found little connection with IPAís that I have had in the past. Itís a regular shock top with a little more alcohol, but nothing in the area of hops for an IPA.

Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Aroma is citrus and wheat. Flavor is sweet, orange, citrus, lightly tart and bitter fairly balanced with a rather dry finish.

Pours a very slightly hazy golden pour with ring of white head. Not over the top with any particular character or flavor notes. Fairly balanced actually. More wheaty on the nose with a decent dose of citrusy cascade hops. Flavor is a little more citrus sweet hops. Decent bitterness on the finish, but it passes quickly. Iíd consider it more of a wheat pale ale than an ipa. But truthfully, Iíd drink this if nothing better was around.

Bottle served in a tulip. Pours hazy dark orange with a short head. Short retention and minimal lacing. Nose lacks quality. Has an artificial spice and an artificial malt nose. Light sweet. Sweet spiced flavor. Light body, thin texture, and a lightly hopped dry finish. Not good. Think of it this way... its Shock Top briefly poured over orange peels and coriander seeds. Definitely not an IPA.

12 oz. bottle- Pours hazy dark orange with a one finger head that is reducing quickly. The aroma is citrusy up front followed by generic beer, pretty bland and boring. The taste is orange peel, very citrusy, very little hops to speak of, maybe a little in the back of the throat. Sessionable, but massively boring, paper thin body, carbonation is soft. Itís Shock Top, what do you expect, you get what you pay for.

12 oz bottle. Alright, letís check out the latest Blue Moon ripoff from AB-Inbev. Pours cloudy orange with a medium white head that falls into a skiff of foam after a minute or so. I smell the citrus peels in the nose and thatís about it. Taste is dryly bitter with a bit of malt sweetness that attempts to balance things out. The citrus peels are very apparent. Iím used to my IPAs being citrusy--grapefruit especially--but this is different. It seems the citrus-ness here is not from the hops, but soley from the added citrus peels. Mouthfeel is creamy and the carbonation is average; body is light. Overall, itís a different take on the IPA style--the wheat clearly alters the style profile--which I can appreciate, but it doesnít leave much of an impression.
