2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a cloudy orange with a soapy white head, the aroma is of must and slight hops, the flavor is of old hops with a finish of slight grapefruit and citrus, its like an IPA extremely tuned down, not good.

heh heh heh heh heh heh Jesus Christ heh heh heh heh heh heh I canít stop laughing long enough to rate this piece of shit. Oh lordy, this beer may be the funniest thing thatís happened to me in two weeks. Shock Top Wheat India Pale Ale. Thereís only six words in the title, but thereís at least seven outright lies. I canít even say this beer is shocking; no, itís the tremendous festering turd I knew it would be. No hops, nothing resembling a wheat ale, no pale ale-ness, either, just a fruity, off-tasting sweetness and a mouse burpís worth of bitterness. This beer is for idiots, brewed by assholes. Fuck íem. They deserve each other.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark orange with some red huss, small white frothy head. Nose of citrus slight bit of orange. Lots of carbonation, very light body. Some caramel mixed with slight happiness, and that funky sweetness that normal shocktop has. Not terrible.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle. I like their Belgian White and my favorite style is IPA so I gave this a try. I took the pour recommendation from the label around the neck. The pour is a hazy unfiltered orange color with little head that disappeared quick. Aroma is mild with very small notes of citrus. The mouth feel matches the aroma. I get a slight citrus hop up front with some of the wheat, that just falls off in the finish. Clearly more of a wheat than an IPA. I didnít go into it expecting much so I canít say I was disappointed.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
bottle at my buds. hazy orange color with small head, no retention. nose of wheat, fake fruit, and citrus hop. taste follows in order. mouth is nealy and chewy. this is tough to get down the hatch.

Mild aroma with minimal citrus tones but a thick, unfiltered pour with a simple taste and barely there mouthfeel.

12 oz twist off. It smells and tastes like fruit roll-ups. It has artificial flavors. It is hilarious that people can be fooled by this. As a soda it is okay.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is probably my favorite of the Shock Top beers. Itís still mild but just has a little more body and a minimal but present hop flavor.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a dark amber with some light haze throughout. 3cm of off-white head that dissapates with no lacing to speak of. Even with a deep whiff I get almost nothing except a very faint citrus hop. The hop disappear on the palate and itís just an underwhelming light sweetness, like maybe honeysuckle, and then a tang of bitterness somewhere in there. Very watery, finishes with a whimper.
