Shock Top Wheat IPA

I poured this one and took a whiff. The pour had been unremarkable, and the head was relatively thin, but resilient. The color was a foggy dark yellow. But this is taking me away from my point - the aroma.

It smells faintly of hops and strongly of... is it soap? It smells like soap to me. This does not bode well. Now, a friend of mine drinks Shock Top all the time, so I'm guessing the aroma is just an anomaly. At least, I *hope* it's anomalous.

Tentatively, I take a sip. No, I don't detect any significant soap taste. I guess it's just the smell.

It's not bad. It's not a great IPA, as it were, but it's not a bad beverage. It's got way too much citrus in there to be a proper IPA, and I have never really been a fan of wheat beers. Nevertheless, it's not the most horrific beer I've had. The taste isn't particularly lasting. It is possibly the most ephemeral tasting beer I've ever had. The taste goes away in a flash.
