bottle. Poured orange/amber with a thin creamy off-white head. Light grainy, slightly herbal aroma. Light crisply carbonated mouthfeel, finishes dry and sticky. Grainy wheat flavour, a light spicy note, but a bit soapy. JasonJ (2) - Washington, USA - DEC 29, 2012 does not count
Refreshing light IPA that is delicious as an inexperienced drinker. The flavor is full, but not as bitter as most IPA fans prefer. AmEricanbrew (7080) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Clear amber color with fizzy white head. Coriander, citrus lemon, pale wheat aromas. medium body. Tart citrus, coriander, caramel flavors--missed the hops here--decent enough though. Cybercat (6340) - Georgia, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Aroma is hoppy and wheaty, with a subtle citrus undertone. Not too bad for a macrobrew creation pretending to be a craft beer. Pours a clear, bubbly, dark amber with a fairly thick pale tan head. Flavor is not as hoppy or wheaty as the aroma promised, but the orange and coriander definitely come out. Texture has about average firmness, not a whole lot of fizz. Overall, just OK, but still palatable. thedm (6320) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 25, 2012
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.

Cloudy copper with a thin foamy white head. Aroma was a little wheaty and citrusy with funky hoppy undertone. Flavor fell pretty flat, with wheaty biscuity undertones with a half-hearted hop presence following, decent orange peel notes because I’m sure ABInBev just doesnt know how to make craft style beer without orange peel...with a little citrusy hop bitterness. Bland and unexciting. I actually really wanted to like this. I had hoped that a macro Wheat IPA would be the shot in the arm craft-style beers needed to gain credibility. But this just sucks like everything else ABinBev produces. aaronbr (195) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Flat, a bit unbalanced as IPAs go. Cloudy copper pour, not very aromatic. Metallic finish, some characters of wheat that verge toward a hefeweizen, but tastes more like a straight mix of the two styles than a well-balanced blend. It’s okay, but nothing special.

Appearance- cloudy amber, bubble head that disapates to nothing, no lacing
Smell- fruity but strange
Taste- wheat flavor is fine, but fruityness is way off, and hardly any noticable hops
Palate- thin, overcarbonated
Overall- sub-par, I like many wheat-IPA mixes, but this is no good. The amount of fruityness and extreme lack of hops seems off for an IPA. I think they have a decent start, but need a more hoppy IPA taste FalseLion (25) - - NOV 25, 2012
I’m 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 I’ve yet to find anywhere else. You got the full flavor of an IPA with the smoothness of a wheat beer. kidmartinek (5007) - austin, Texas, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Has a citrusy hoppy aroma with a malty undertone. The color is cloudy blood orange. The head is small and white, but it lasts. The flavor is like a witbeer with a lot of orange peel and a respectable does of Cascade. The beer has a creamy texture and is a little sweet. That’s what makes it bad for me and good for InBev to sell to girls.
