Bubble gum nose. Cloudy amber, medium yellow head, good lace. Wheat bread with bubble gum and citrus at midpalate and returning to wheat in the finish. It strikes me as an ABIB attempt at Three Floyds Gumball Head. Itís enjoyable, but not nearly as good. Nice transitions and one of ABIBís better offerings.

Iím not particularly impressed with shock top beers after all they are a mega brewery craft beer. I do really like this beer though it has an extreme taste that Iíve yet to find anywhere else. You got the full flavor of an IPA with the smoothness of a wheat beer.

Initial aroma is the beerís best quality. Color is a pleasant orangish brown. Nor too bitter like many IPAs, and the hint of orange is a nice addition. A little watery and a bit flat. Taste almost disappears before you finish. A very good but not great beer.

Bottle. Very heavy citrus.Clouded orange tint. Taste is more like the original ale. Small hops. Disappointing as an IPA but nice to see them try.

This bottled brew from a grocery store poured a head of bubbles that were and left behind a strongly carbonated very hazy dark orange colored body and a good lacing. The deep aroma was hoppy and wheat. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of wheat breads and hops. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

Draft from magic mushroom. Sweet smell and lite on the palate. Mild citrus taste and not very hoppy. Good lite sure type beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I had heard of the shock top brand so I decided to try the IPA. This beer tasted and smelled like a sierra Nevada but with a less bitter aftertaste. Would drink again.

Refreshing light IPA that is delicious as an inexperienced drinker. The flavor is full, but not as bitter as most IPA fans prefer.

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