(bottle - 12 oz) Copper color with not much head and some sediment floating. Almost no aroma. Some light wheat and that’s about it. Flavor is pretty much the same. Dry wheat with some very light spice. Nothing really special or worth writing about.

Umm, this is not anb IPA by any stretch of the imagination. They might want to call Anchorage Brewing and order up a case of their Galaxy White IPA to see how a wheat IPA is done right. Pours medium amber with lots of subs, aroma is citrus soap, tastes like an orange what beer, very unimpressive hop profile. This IPA is not for lovers of IPAs, its for someone who hates IPAs.

hfmejias (818) - Dover, Delaware, USA - JUN 1, 2013
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 (515) - 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.

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.
