Notes/Commercial Description:
Shock Top Wheat IPA is no traditional beer. It’s a unique hybrid that combines the fresh flavor and smoothness of wheat beer with the crisp hop bitterness of an IPA. The result is a beer that is truly like no other.

To serve, pour down the side of the glass until a half inch is left in the bottle. Swirl the remaining brew and pour to produce a rich, thick collar of foam that releases the citrusy Cascade hop aroma.

3.25/5  rDev +16.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #62 (Mar 2012):

LOOK: Hazed gold

SMELL: Dried grass, orange peel, faint coriander, chalky, clean, somewhat absent

TASTE: Slick, semi-crisp, pulling orange peel, hop bitterness, muted coriander, grainy, bread crust, very dry

The whole entire character of the beer meets the nose and palate halfway, then just drops off like it was never even there. What is the reason for such a lackluster aftertaste? It had potential. Perhaps this beer is what differentiates between macros and what is going on deep in the craft beer world.
