Bottle. Pours hazy canary with 3-finger fluffy white head. Nose is very white peppery, floral, and lemongrassy citric,, with a big hop bill. Tastes hoppy, ctric, dry and limey, like a hybrid wit/Belgian pale with a bit less Oomph and palate heft. A refreshing summer brew.

Pours a hazy very pale yellow with a thick white head. Aroma has some dusty spice and skunkiness. Flavor follows suit...reminds me of clown shoes miracle...adds some watery citrus. Mouthfeel is light/medium and the finish is dusty/spicy/leathery.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
My first white IPA.
Chainbreaker is very pale golden color ale with some haziness. A tall fluffy head sits on top with plenty of lacing.
Aroma is akin to a Beligum wit but is balanced out with a citrus hop bouquet that lightens the wit beer aroma. Smells wonderful in all honesty.
Taste is like wow, light and refreshing hints of wheat malts, yeasty esters and lemon grass hops.
Drinks smooth and tart with a bitter finish.
Probably will be a hit in the summer no doubt, which would be prefect for that time of year.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy pale gold with over a half inch of thick white head that rings the glass throughout the drink. Nose of citrus and floral hops with the slight funk of a farmhouse yeast. Light citrus flavor with a little of the yeast coming through a little wheat. Very good summer beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home, my second Deschutes White IPA of the evening. Pours cloudy pale green gold, 1-finger white head, soft lacing. Nose is spicy wheat, lemon, sherbet lemon, white pepper, salt. Flavours of wheat, gentle hops, watery. Not the equal of the Conflux.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 Hazy straw-yellow body. Large white head. Spotty lacing. Lemon zest, banana, wheat, grassy hops, floral notes, and a decidedly yeasty character at the end of each whiff. Flavor is more witbier, than IPA, with wheat, banana, and yeast taking precedence over the citric/grassy hops in the nose. Medium to light bodied, assertive carbonation, refreshing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Off white, with gold in color, big white head. lots of pine on the nose, and citrus notes. Taste is dominated by pine (for me, probably because the nose is so strong), spicy, different. not bad.
