On draft at BurGR in Las Vegas.
The beer is pale yellow and extremely hazy with a pure white cap. Aromas of herbal tea, lemons, lemon rind, earth, wheat, coriander, hops. Really, this brew drinks as advertised - a hoppy witbier, essentially. Refreshing and crisp, finishing dry. Prickly carbonation with a tangy, mildly tart, grapefruit finish. Lingering bitterness and coriander. A cool and unique beer.

Lychee aroma right after the pour. More coriander and citrus in the aroma after a while. Refreshing but a little thin on mouthfeel. Nice pilsner malt with Belgian yeast spiciness and phenolic. Lightly bitter. Overall - interesting aroma and refreshing.

Pours a hazy yellow. A light beer in that is refreshing and easy to drink. Sweet lemon flavors with enough hops to make it more complex.

August 23rd, 2012 - White IPAs seemed to be a big deal back in 2012, though I don’t know where many of them went. Deschutes’ Chainbreaker is still around, though, and that persistent popularity speaks to two qualities: Deschutes large distribution network, and the provisioning of a good White IPA. For those of us with less tolerance for dank, weedy and bitter beers than most, an IPA with a softer touch is something worth sighing longingly about. This brew’s aroma explains why: soft and buttery, with a touch of golden, yeasty biscuits, a light whiff of dandelion, and the distinct peal of pilsner malt. The flavor shares the aroma’s light and buttery flavor, served with a velvety soft palate. And again, the biscuit, dandelion and yeasty flavors appear again in the taste, but the hoppiness is a bit more pronounced, and nicely balanced against the menagerie of baker’s shop smells. A medium aftertaste carries this complementary flavor forward, giving each sip the sensation of being valuable succor from the more regular and uniformed IPAs out there in the world, especially here on the Wes Coast.

Pours a cloudy/hazy yellow color with white head. Citrus, wheat, grass, and flowery notes on the nose; follow onto the palate. Medium-bodied and just a bit chewy. Finish lingers on the palate.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A- Citrus, wheat, slight floral.
A- Pale yellow color, clear liquid, minimal head.
T- Citrus, grapefruit, wheat, slightly malty, mild bitterness.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, smooth crisp finish.
O- A great IPA. I love the White IPA style and the citrus tones the Citra hops bring to this beer. Very smooth and almost reminds me more of a Pale Wheat Ale which certainly pleases me. Smooth and refreshing. Nothing wrong with that!
