Pale wheat ale? Ipa?
It doesn't matter.
This beer is not impressive regardless. I'll be honest, the hops add a nice punch to this particular sub-par wheat beer. The wheat beer actually seems to stand out more here than in the Shock Top beers I've had.
Big orange peel notes... Like crazy ridiculous orange peel notes. Lots of coriander spice as well. The hops add a some citrusy notes to boot, but not nearly enough to call this an ipa. And hardly any bitterness. Rather dry finish.
I could see this beer impressing BMC drinkers because I'll give some credit; there actually is some flavor here... It just doesn't cut it in the big leagues.
