12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Pours cloudy amber with a decent white head and some lacing. Aroma is grain, malts and some fruit. Taste is malty, wheat and caramel with some hints of hops. It’s not and IPA for a hophead , perhaps OK to introduce people to IPA’s; sorry but not really a big fan.

355mL, zero rated ipa. Higher carbonation Muddy amber pour. Medium Suddy tan foam. No lace. Nose is detergent, lemon, not band. More air freshener. Taste is Suddy, bland, sticky. Prickly carbonation with abrasive long boil hop bitterness. Papery, harsh mouthfeel. No surprise.

Very light, very little hop flavor. This should not be considered an IPA by any means. Pathetic head with nonexistent lacing. Other than that, really not a bad beer. Nice color, easy drinking smooth taste. If they could add some more carbonation and call this just a wheat ale instead of a wheat IPA I would have much more respect for this brew.

NIce not so hoppy as I had guessed. NIce aroma and unfiltered alike. Fine aftertaste and refreshing was too.

Fredis23 (481) - Hickory Hills, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Hazy. Just like other Shock Tops strong orange and wheat with some hoppy bitterness added. More wheat beer than IPA. Easy to drink. Would pick over any other Bud product any time. Pretty Good.

DocLock (7824) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Bottles from Capone’s and Wegman’s Collegeville. Pours hazy dark straw toward orange with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is wheaty pale malt, mild hops, some apricotty fruit. Tastes pale malty, mildly fruity, with some finishing sweetness. OK, not great.

kramer (4895) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear bright orangish gold body with a small frothy white head that left a bit of sticky lacing. The nose is pretty bland and doesn’t say IPA to me in the slightest. Smells like the regular Shock Top to me, some orange and coriander, but with just a light touch of floral hops. The flavor is a bit more hoppy, though it doesn’t rise to the level of IPA at all. Still mostly orange and coriander, but a little more toned down than the original. Finishes with a light bitterness. Mouthfeel is fairly light bodied, though unlike the regular version, it’s lacking in texture from the omission of the yeast. Moderate fizzy prickly carbonation. Still fairly easy to finish a bottle of, but not something I’d get more than a single of, this is in no way an IPA.

Out of a bottle. Orange/cloudy in color with creamy color head. Dropped an orange wedge in it, better orange flavor... go figure.
