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.

I don't understand how this beer is being so bashed. I suppose naming it an IPA is a bit misleading, however, name aside, it's a great tasting spring and summer brew. Very easy to drink and drink and drink. One of my all time favorites and unfortunately, it's no longer kegged by AB.

There is a watered-down honeysuckle taste with heavy citrus overtones. The hops are present, but do not introduce themselves. This is the Anheuser-Busch of IPA's with a citrus-wheat twist. I enjoy pounding these because they don't have a heavy or pronounced flavor, but make us hop-lovers laugh in a "hey, this ain't too terrible" sorta way. This is why I like this beer.
